MPVs are never handsome cars, with their boxy, upright silhouettes, but BMW has made the best of a bad hand with its funky head and tail lights and a few sharp lines to carve up the slab sides. Inside, however, is all that most owners will care about, and the 2-Series GT is a welcome relief from more mass-manufacturer offerings. It feels like a proper seven-seater in terms of leg space, although the rear row doesn’t offer the grand proper seats of a Discovery, say, but that comes with a much bigger footprint. Our test car had a £1,040 comfort pack with steering wheel heating (yes), electric front seats (yes), lumbar support (no) and front seat heating (yes). We also had the tech pack at £1,260: head-up display (yes), Bluetooth with wireless charging (yes), navigation Plus (no) and Wifi hotspot (no). Also the Vision pack (£1,175): reversing camera (yes), folding exterior mirrors with anti dazzle (yes), LED headlights (yes). Also: a £40 touring fuel tank (yes), £160 bike rack preparation (yes), £945 panoramic sunroof (yes), £190 folding tables in rear (yes) and £235 Apple CarPlay preparation (yes yes yes).
