Thorough Australian review of 225i AT
BMW 2 Series Active Tourer 2014 Review - motoring.com.au
Quite a thorough review, with comparisons to other BMW models. Also, it's the largest engine and auto, which is probably like the US spec.
(Note the complaint about road noise may not relate to US - we have lots of coarse chip road surfaces which are notorious for defeating the noise suppression of European cars.)
