All information about the 8er Gran Coupe
After the Coupé and the convertible, BMW is now putting on the four-door version of the 8 Series: the Gran Coupe. How To Cars has all the information and the seat sample!
More space for the knees
Open the door, please get in! It goes down deep into the back seat of the new 8 Series Gran Coupe, which is larger than its predecessor in the 6 Series. The extended wheelbase gives more space in front of the knees, but the higher roof still flattens the hairstyle. The new rear seat system with integrated headrests makes for sporty, only the fifth passenger squats in the middle as in the bed risers. BMW calls the “4 + 1-seater” – so the Gran Coupe looks for its buyers between 7 and the two-door 8 Series. A sports car can not be the M850i x-Drive, at least 5.08 meters long and 2070 kilos. For the most charming four-door BMW. The front of the coupe comes from the coupe, he lifts the buttocks even wider. Frameless side windows press into the rubber seals again, the cockpit with the wide center console separates the driver and front passenger. Leather is standard in the door sills, electrically adjustable sports seats memorize different positions. It goes without saying that infotainment and safety meet the highest standards – and yet, thanks to further extras (panoramic roof, heated armrests, four-zone climate), even more is possible.
Cheaper than 8 Series Coupe
This also applies to the drive. From 320 hp of the three-liter diesel up to 530 hp in the M850i with four-wheel drive, the range at the dealer debut in November 2019, always with eight-speed automatic transmission and at least 18-inch wheels. Extras such as roll stabilization or the sporty designed rear axle steering will help to throw the chunks even more sportily around the corners. Or you can expect the already mentioned M8 Gran Coupé with 625 hp, which will arrive in spring 2020. The most beautiful backdoor opens the Gran Coupe but in the price list. The four-door is at the same drive 3000 euros cheaper than the two-door coupe: The four-door starts as 840i with Reihensechser at 91,500 euros.
