BMW 8 Series buying guide

Few cars manage to mix luxury and sportiness, but the BMW 8 Series does so with aplomb. It’s BMW’s flagship car, rivalling the Audi A7, Mercedes CLS and even the Porsche Panamera in four-door Gran Coupe guise.

What BMW 8 Series trim levels are there?

It won’t take you long to pick, as there are only two trim levels: standard and M Sport. Both have an equipment list as long as your arm, with LED headlights, 20-inch wheels, heated and electrically adjustable leather seats, wireless phone charging and a high-end stereo system, among many other things. M Sport adds a sporty body kit and tinted windows, plus the usual badging inside and out. 

BMW 8 Series interior and technology

It’s clearly a BMW inside the 8 Series, but it’s a good dollop more luxurious than lesser Beemers. The materials are top-rate, with all the bits that look like metal feeling suitably cool. All 8 Series models come with a fancy digital instrument cluster and a crisply rendered touchscreen. These are BMW’s best screens – there’s no entry model with a smaller screen here. Of course, the touchscreen is crammed with features, including parking assistance.

BMW 8 Series engine range explained

(Most popular!) BMW 8 Series 840i petrol

BMW might use this 3.0-litre six-cylinder petrol in other models, but it gets a unique tune for the 840i. Power stands at 333hp and 0-62mph acceleration takes just five seconds – and remember, this is the ‘entry-level’ engine. The 840i is the only 8er to have rear-wheel drive rather than four-wheel drive. It manages up to 33mpg.

BMW 8 Series 840d diesel

A diesel engine might not be everyone’s first choice for a sporty grand tourer, but the six-cylinder diesel under the 840d’s bonnet demolishes long distances with ease. It’s also the most economical version, offering 39mpg. Performance is very close to the 840i, so few people will feel the diesel is slow.

BMW 8 Series M850i petrol

The M850i xDrive uses the same 4.0-litre V8 petrol as the standalone M8 Gran Coupe, but with slightly less power. Don’t worry, you still get 530hp and a sub-four-second 0-62mph time.

Your BMW 8 Series questions answered

There’s a two-door BMW 8 Series coupe and an accompanying convertible, plus a four-door Gran Coupe that makes accessing the rear seats so much easier. Oh, and there are M versions of each, with meteoric power outputs and blazingly fast acceleration. Here, we’ll largely focus on the 8 Series Gran Coupe as it’s the version that most often comes to Motorpoint stores.

A flagship car needs suitably imperious dimensions, and the 8 Series Gran Coupe measures nearly 5.1 metres long (about 20cm longer than the Coupe). But the Gran Coupe is also one of BMW’s lowest models, and that combination gives it huge street presence. The wheelbase has been stretched to match the 7 Series, so rear-seat occupants get more than enough leg room. The swooping roof means that tall adults will be more comfortable in the back of a 7 Series, but average-sized people won’t have any complaints.

The 440-litre boot is big enough for three sets of golf clubs, so says BMW. Its saloon bootlid means you won’t be carrying bulky items, but the rear seats fold individually for a surprisingly versatile space.

Hybrid and electric buyers won’t find anything here (if that’s you, check the 7 Series instead), but the 8 Series gets a choice selection of powerful petrol and diesel engines. All have automatic gearboxes, and BMW’s xDrive four-wheel-drive system is fitted on the majority of cars.
