The BMW 2 Series range boasts both sporty and practical models, including the 2 Series coupe and 2 Series convertible which is a great alternative to a fast hatchback. On the more practical side, BMW offers the 2 Series Active Tourer which is an all-round great value MPV due to its competitive pricing and strong fuel economy. If you're looking for something a little bigger then the seven-seater 2 Series Gran Tourer MPV is a great choice for the family who wants the combination of style and practicality.
Trim levels start with the entry-level SE and go all the way up to M Models. You can expect to find 17-inch or 18-inch alloy wheels, and if you upgrade you’ll be treated to M Sport features such as sporty steering wheels and leather upholstery.
All of them are guaranteed to provide a stylish, comfortable contract hire ride and the high-end performance that only BMW can offer.

Leasing a BMW 2 Series
Previously known as the 1 Series, the BMW 2 Series has been around since 2004 and became a range in its own right in 2014. It sits in the compact category, which suits the sporty Convertible, the two-door Coupe and, at a stretch, the Gran Coupe, which seats up to five. However, the 2 Series Active Tourer and Gran Tourer could never be considered anything but spacious with five or seven seats and plenty of boot space.
You can choose a BMW 2 Series diesel or petrol lease car, with a 1.5-litre, 2.0-litre and 3.0-litre engine available. The Active Tourer 225Xe is a plug-in hybrid model which has a driving range of up to 32 miles in purely electric mode and no emissions. If you want to put the pedal to the metal, the BMW M240i Coupe has a TwinPower Turbo engine and will take you from 0 to 62 mph in 4.6 seconds. You can also opt for an 8-speed Sport dual-clutch (DCT) automatic gearbox. Fuel economy ranges from 38 mpg to 55 mpg. Handling for the 2 Series is excellent, and you can choose the firm’s all-wheel drive offering - the xDrive - with the xDrive M Sport model offering grip and performance.
The iconic BMW infotainment system is available across all models, and has a 6.5-inch digital screen containing standard applications such as sat nav, DAB radio and Bluetooth connectivity. As part of your standard Tech Pack, you’ll get a range of safety features including automated emergency braking, parking sensors and forward-collision warning.

Alternatives to the 2 Series Coupe would be the iconic Audi TT which offers both roadster and coupe versions.

For us, the answer is clear. How many people get to drive away in a brand new BMW 2 Series without having to pay out a big upfront cost? With leasing, you not only get the dream car without the crippling price tag, you no longer worry about road tax which is included in your contract hire.
