It’s a new concept for BMW: the 2 Series Active Tourer is the brand’s first front-wheel drive. For the international press launch, BMW took journalists to where the drivers of this car will want to be – out in the countryside. The Alpine panorama of Ötztal, Austria, provided the ideal backdrop for a spectacular launch that saw the Active Tourer showcase its capabilities on both highway and cableway.

After the press conference, the journalists are taken up to the summit. A gala dinner awaits before a mountain panorama bathed in the evening sunlight. The pièce de résistance: the Active Tourer turns into a cable car. Saving the best for last!
