BMW 8 Series Engines

BMW says the new 8-series is one part of a new design language for the brand, which is meant to be cleaner and more contemporary. It has a lovely interior abd offers a pretty good driving experience.
Two engines will be available from launch; an 840d and a M850i. Both have BMW’s xDrive all-wheel drive system and an eight-speed ‘Steptronic’ automatic gearbox as standard.

BMW 840d xDrive

Engine: 3.0-litre straight-six turbodieselPower/torque: 316bhp/502lb ft0-62mph/top speed: 4.9sec/155mph limited Claimed economy: 46.3mpg

BMW M850i xDrive

Engine: 4.4-litre twin-turbo V8Power/torque: 523bhp/553lb ft0-62mph/top speed: 3.7sec/155mph limited Claimed economy: 28.3mpg

The xDrive all-wheel drive system just defaults to sending all power to the rears under normal driving conditions to help with efficiency; only when the car detects slip or under heavy load will the fronts light up to add extra grip. BMW’s ‘Integral Active Steering’ is standard, too.

The all-new 2019 BMW 8 Series has a great interior and features plenty of premium materials. However, a few critics argue that a top-shelf car like this should stand out more with its cabin styling, deriding the fact its interior looks and feels like other BMWs and that some rivals have more panache. The front seats are superb, though the rear seats are too small for adults. Trunk space is good for the class, and a mostly easy-to-use infotainment system headlines the features list.
