2019 BMW X8 Styling
The BMW X8 will be created for individuals who desire a practical SUV but aren’t happy to sacrifice on design. That means the X8 will get a more diving roofline than the X7 and an even bolder front grille– although it’s hard to envision how the latter could be possible. X8 models are most likely to come as standard with decreased M Sport suspension– to offer the car a more hunched down look– and huge alloy wheels.
2019 BMW X8 Practicality
Although the swept back roofline– and resulting smaller sized rear windows– will make the X8’s back seat feel a little bit more claustrophobic than the X7’s, you can still anticipate the rear seat to happily accommodate two six-foot grownups. Boot space will also be a high priority and the X8 will be even more useful than a conventional coupe, thanks to a high boot and back seats that fold down to give way for bulky items such as flat-pack furniture.
2019 BMW X8 Infotainment
That said, the X8’s lavish cabin must dispel any worries that it is a farming workhorse. It’ll be shown the X7 so you can anticipate it to get a large infotainment screen and a digital display in the instrument binnacle where you would generally find analogue dials. Their multi-purpose capability will permit BMW to minimize conventional buttons leaving the method clear for leather and pricey looking trim pieces throughout the cabin.
2019 BMW X8 Drive
The X8 is set to be more enjoyable to drive than the X7. It’s most likely that X8 models will come fitted with stiffer M Sport suspension as standard– to eliminate body lean in corners at the expenditure of some comfort on bumpy roadways– and quicker steering to make the car feel more nimble. An eight-speed automatic gearbox will also be a basic feature.
2019 BMW X8 Engines
For efficiency that remains in keeping with the X8’s looks you can anticipate it to be available with a variety of 6 and eight-cylinder engines. An apparent option would be the 3.0-litre 313hp diesel engine fitted to the BMW 640d, with it in location the X8 must be capable of 0-62mph in under six seconds and fuel economy of around 45mpg. Another likely candidate would be the 450hp 4.4-litre V8 petrol fitted to 650i– it would be sweeter sounding and quicker than the six-cylinder choices, but at the expense of truly scary fuel economy.
2019 BMW X8 Price and Release Date
If you expensive having a shining new BMW X8 on your driveway then the problem is that it’ll not come cheap, prices are set to begin with ₤ 80,000 increasing to well over ₤ 100,000 for a top of the range model. It’ll likely to go on sale in the latter half of 2019.
