8 Series Performance

The 8 Series can be equipped with a range of engines that go from daily driver to performance car. The standard engine is a 335-horsepower 3.0-liter twin-turbo six-cylinder, but you can upgrade to an available 4.4-liter twin-turbo V8 engine that produce between 523 and 617 horsepower. All engines pair to an eight-speed automatic with rear-wheel drive, but all-wheel drive is available.

In addition to the engine options, you can upgrade the performance with numerous performance packages that add styling details and performance enhancements. Some of these upgrades include M Sport brakes, high-performance non-run-flat tires, a rear spoiler, engine oil coolers, and all-wheel steering for improved maneuverability, depending on the engine and package.

8 Series Interior

The 8 Series comes in a four-door or two-door model and a convertible model. With the four-door, you can fit five people comfortably, while the two-door and convertible models accommodate four people. All of the seats have ample support and cushioning for long-distance comfort, as well as power adjustability and an abundance of headroom and legroom. The interior materials are high quality and elegant, including features like leather upholstery, interior lighting, and a panoramic moonroof.

With cargo space at the top of the class, the 8 Series can easily accommodate all of your gear. The four-door model offers 15.5 cubic feet of space in the trunk, while the coupe offers 14.8 cubic feet. The convertible boasts 12.4 cubic feet in the trunk, which is more than many of its competitors. The trunk also has a low liftover height for easy loading and unloading, and the back seats fold flat for more space.

8 Series Technology

The 8 Series comes with the intuitive iDrive system, a celebrated system that features a responsive touch screen and a combination of touch inputs and a rotary knob for controls. Standard technology features include a 10.25-inch touch screen with Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ for streaming music and media, a premium Harman Kardon® sound system, satellite radio, and HD radio. You could add a 12- or 16-speaker Bowers & Wilkins® premium sound system and extra USB ports.

Numerous safety features are included for the 8 Series, including a head-up display, adaptive headlights, and a rearview camera. You'll also have automatic high-beam headlights that turn on in low light situations and forward-collision warning with automatic emergency braking, a feature that detects possible frontal crashes and applies the brakes automatically.
