BMW 2 Series Grand Tourer

BMW have decided to make a people carrier of sorts for the beige corduroy wearing clientele.

Front wheel drive, so no rear drive fun. Has 7 seats so all the family and dog can enjoy the dullness.

It shares no mechanical relationship to the other cars in the 2 series class so you cant even claim bragging rights that its the same as the M2. It shares the platform with the new Mini countryman.

Available with either a 1.5 petrol or diesel or 2.0 petrol or diesel. the 225i gets a peppy 228bhp but the others are all pretty much snoozville.

Is it cool?

Wanting a BMW because everyone else has one is deeply uncool. Compounding that by buying the BMW that doesn't even have the feature that makes BMWs appealing makes this possibly the most uncool car ever.

To someone relegated to the 4th level of hell (having to drive a people carrier due to kids)
it's probably the coolest thing on the planet.


The fact that it's overpriced schite and they'd be better off in an S-Max
wouldn't cross their tiny minds.

Potentially a big winner for BM.

Ultimately it's about as cool as a dose of the clap.

Pointless poll, it's not even worthy of being on the cool wall, just delete it and be done with it

Truely hideous execution of the same basic theme which Kia have done quite well with their equivalent. The bits are in the wrong places particularly the grill and bonnet which look like they've hit something. Still it's a BM.

In an ocean of pointless niches, BMW plumbs new depths. The very antithesis of their own marketing hype. Below seriously uncool in its pitifully nasty uncoolness.

+ it has a BMW badge and costs more than equally adequate mini MPV-yah schiite so you can be smug about paying a lot for it.

Sterilisation would be a vastly preferable option to driving this stylistically derelict abomination.

If someone is silly enough to have so many kids that they actually need a seven-seater MPV, maaaaaybe they could be silly enough to think that a BMW badge makes an unattractive FWD people mover more cool rather than less cool?

Also, the official name for this vehicle isn't 'Grand Tourer', it's 'Gran Tourer'. BMW left off the letter 'd' because they reportedly expect 20% of sales to be to elderly buyers!

Office Chair.

How could it be cool? There was nothing below seriously uncool so I had to vote that.

It'll sell like hotcakes however.
