2019 BMW 8 SERIES VS MERCEDES S-CLASS - Visual Design Comparison
BMW has unveiled the all-new 8-Series Convertible. Set to go on sale in the United States in March, the M850i xDrive Convertible follows in the footsteps of the 8-Series Coupe but adopts a retractable soft top which can be raised or lowered in 15 seconds at speeds up to 30 mph (48 km/h). The roof isn’t the only thing new as the convertible has a unique rear end and automatic rollover protection system which can deploy two high-strength aluminum roll bars within a fraction of a second. The rest of the design largely carries over from the M850i xDrive Coupe as drivers will find an aggressive front fascia with a wide grille that is flanked by adaptive LED headlights with laserlight technology. The convertible also has trapezoidal exhaust tips, LED taillights and 20-inch M lightweight alloy wheels. Customers looking for a sportier appearance can order the optional M Carbon Exterior Package. It adds an assortment of carbon fiber goodies including new mirror caps, a rear diffuser insert and “air intake bars.” The cabin also echoes the coupe, but there are new controls for the soft top and the optional neck warmers. The latter option adds air vents to the front seat headrests and the air flow can be automatically controlled to adjust for vehicle speed. Another feature that is unique to the convertible is the standard wind deflector. It can be positioned behind the front seats or folded up and stored in the trunk. Other interior highlights include a M Sport steering wheel, heated sports seats and illuminated door sill plates. The model also comes standard with Merino Individual leather upholstery, an ambient lighting system and a 12-speaker Harman Kardon audio system. Rounding out the highlights are a head-up display, a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster and an infotainment system with a 10.25-inch display. A number of different options will be available including heated / ventilated front seats, glass accents and a Bowers & Wilkins diamond surround sound system. Power is provided by a 4.4-liter TwinPower Turbo V8 engine that produces 523 hp (390 kW / 530 PS) and 553 lb-ft (748 Nm) of torque. It is connected to an eight-speed automatic transmission and a standard all-wheel drive system. This setup enables the convertible to rocket from 0-60 mph (0-96 km/h) in 3.8 seconds before hitting an electronically limited top speed of 155 mph (250 km/h). Since the M850i has been designed to slot underneath the M8 Convertible, the car has been equipped with an assortment of performance features. These include an Adaptive M suspension and an Integral Active Steering system which enables the rear wheels to turn in up to 2.5 degrees to improve agility. Other highlights include an optional active roll stabilization system and a standard M Sport braking system with blue calipers. As with most modern cars, the 8-Series Convertible comes with an assortment of driver assistance systems. Standard features include park distance control as well as collision and pedestrian warning systems with a city braking function. The optional driving assistant professional package goes even further as it adds Active Cruise Control with Stop & Go, Lane Keeping Assistant with Active Side Collision Protection, Lane Departure Warning, Active Blind Spot Detection and Crossing Traffic Warning. When the M850i xDrive Convertible arrives at dealerships this spring, the model will carry a base price of $121,400 (excluding a $995 destination fee). That means the drop top will cost $9,500 more than the M850i xDrive Coupe which arrives in the United States on December 8th. #BMW8 #8Series #M850i Sound: https://www.youtube.com/c/NCMEpicMusic Inspiration: Composed By Ender Güney Subscribe now 👉 https://goo.gl/M7yJtf Press the little bell ((🔔)) to get notifications Follow us Facebook : https://www.fb.me/4drivetime twitter : https://twitter.com/4Drivetime

The German firm reckons its all-new 8 Series, which will later spawn both Convertible and four-door Gran Coupe models, can compete with the Mercedes S-Class Coupe on the posh, cosseting side, yet square up to the Aston Martin DB11 for the sporty stuff. BMW’s latest all-rounder takes the form of a front-engined, four-wheel-drive four-seater. Its wheelbase is 123mm shorter than the S-Class Coupe’s, but 17mm longer than a DB11’s. It perhaps lacks the grace of those competitors in the style stakes, but it has huge presence in the metal (and carbonfibre, in the case of the optional lightweight roof). It looks brawny and aggressive in all the right places, with broad shoulders and 20-inch alloy wheels filling the swollen arches. LED lights are standard, with laser lights available as an option – the slimmest on any BMW. Inside, the 8 Series looks and feels worthy of its £100k asking price. You sit low and the centre console is high, while quality feels superb. It is fitted with the latest version of BMW’s iDrive infotainment system. The big change is a revised home page; previous BMWs display a series of large icons for the major functions, but the 8 Series shows these as shortcuts on a sidebar, opening the space up for a choice of customisable tiles with the major functions. It’s such a slick system that the absence of Android Auto compatibility is only slightly irritating. The instruments are displayed on a 12.3-inch screen that, while it looks sharper than that in a 7 Series, still isn’t as pretty as Audi’s Virtual Cockpit. BMW’s gesture control has been tweaked, too, to the point where it’s almost no longer a gimmick. Once on the move, it doesn’t take long to realise that the 8 Series easily covers the ‘comfy GT’ side of the brief. The cabin is hushed and the ride is very smooth. It can occasionally feel crashy over potholes and drain covers, but otherwise it’s a peaceful drive. All models get a slick eight-speed automatic transmission. This box is mated to a choice of one petrol and one diesel engine from launch. Eventually a hot M8 will join the range – likely using the same engine as the current M5 – but for now the range kicks off with the 840d: a 3.0 straight-six offering up 316bhp and 680Nm. The M850i xDrive we’re testing here has a 523bhp 4.4-litre V8 with 750Nm. It feels every bit as fast as the 3.7-second 0-62mph time suggests, hurling the car forward at a stunning rate. It’s accompanied by a menacing roar, with suitable pops and bangs from the exhaust in Sport mode. Push on, and the M850i remains composed. There’s very little body roll, huge grip, and the four-wheel-drive system puts down the power easily. As impressive as it is, there’s no disguising the significant mass that’s being moved around. So, the 8 Series misses the ultimate sharpness of its sportiest rivals. A natural-feeling four-wheel-steering system disguises the heft when you’re cruising, though. When it comes to the sensible stuff, however, the 8 Series is a little bit hit and miss. The boot is huge, but comes at the expense of rear-seat space. #2019BMW #8Series #M850i_xDrive Subscribe now 👉 https://goo.gl/M7yJtf Press the little bell ((🔔)) to get notifications Follow us Facebook : https://www.fb.me/4drivetime twitter : https://twitter.com/4Drivetime
