BMW has ruled the hearts of auto enthusiasts since the dawn of the 20th century, consistently coming out with groundbreaking innovations while maintaining the same quality and experience that’s synonymous with the brand. A look at the 2022 BMW 8-Series and you would know that the German automaker takes its reputation quite seriously. Besides introducing the long-awaited Alpina B8 trim and announcing the return of the M8 coupe and convertible models, BMW has introduced various other tweaks in the series. Let’s take a look. 

Interior

While the 2022 8-Series models feature a plush cabin, stable handling, swift acceleration, and ample cargo space, the company seems to have cramped the rear seats. Ranked #7 out of 17 in the Luxury Sports Segment by US News, the 8-Series models carry classic BMW styling, which is unmistakably elegant and posh. Most surfaces in the interiors are adorned with premium materials, such as supple leather, crisp aluminum, and soft-touch plastic. 

Features

Be it safety, drive assistance, infotainment or simply practicality, the 2022 BMW 8-Series models have all the boxes checked. The highlights include a 10.2” touchscreen infotainment system, hand gesture recognition, a 16-speaker Harman Kardon stereo, forward collision warning, lane departure warning, adaptive pivoting headlights, front and rear parking sensors with a surround-view camera, hands-free park assist, and adaptive cruise control.

Engine

The 2022 BMW 8-Series models are available in four engine options. While the base model 840i comes with a 335 horsepower turbocharged inline 6-cylinder engine, the midrange M850i is powered by  a twin-turbocharged V8 capable of producing up to 523 horsepower. The Alpina B8 and M8 Competition models, on the other hand, come with upgraded versions of the V8, capable of producing up to 612 and 617 horsepower, respectively. 

Ride & Handling

If there is one thing you can surely expect from the 2022 8-Series models, it is well-balanced ride and handling that separate them from the nearest competitors. Thanks to an adaptive suspension system that instantly adjusts to any changes in the road conditions and expertly reigns in body lean through turns; the models from the 2022 8-Series can comfortably filter out bumps and tread even the harshest backroads with incredible composure.
