2023 BMW 8 Series Gran Coupe Interior and Cargo

2023 8 Series Gran Coupe Interior

The interior of the German grand tourer provides a lavish haven of luxury materials and comfort for its occupants and a long list of features to keep all passengers happy. In true grand tourer style, the interior space of the 2023 BMW 8 Series Gran Coupe feels opulent and more laid back when compared to BMW's more sporty models. The overall interior design can be described as mature, if not somewhat restrained. Nevertheless, the choice of materials is excellent, and the seating is superbly comfortable over long distances, and heated for front-seat passengers from the entry-level trim. Ventilated are available on the M850i. Premium luxury options such as an Alcantara headliner, glass controls, and rear heated seats add extra convenience and comfort. The 99-model Jeff Koons edition is worth mentioning for its bespoke interior design that features prominent red and blue tones.

Seating and Interior Space

The passenger compartment of the 2023 BMW 8 Series Gran Coupe offers seating space for five adults and features two rows of seating, but the rear seat has a large console that hampers foot and leg space in the middle, making this more suitable to seating only two back there. The Gran Coupe has been built for long-distance comfort, and the driving position is especially comfortable. Forward visibility over the Gran Coupe's long hood is good, but rearward visibility is hampered by the car's fastback design. Getting in and out of the Gran Coupe is easy for those in the front, but taller passengers might snag their heads on the sloping entry of the rear seats if not careful. The front seats feature power adjustability with shoulder and thigh support.

2023 8 Series Gran Coupe Infotainment and Features

Features

The BMW 8 Series Gran Coupe isn't simply a grand tourer in name, and the comprehensive features list backs this claim. All models are fitted with convenience features such as an engine start/stop button, an automatic-dimming interior rear-view mirror, remote engine start, keyless entry, advanced vehicle, key memory, and soft-close automatic doors. The Gran Coupe shows its premium heritage by offering comfort features such as power rear sunshades, automatic four-zone climate control, ambient lighting, and power-adjustable heated front seats. Both trim levels get a three-spoke leather-wrapped M Sport steering wheel and a full-color head-up display. Driver assistance features include adaptive cruise control, auto high beams, lane departure warning, frontal collision warning, and automatic city collision mitigation and braking.

Infotainment

The fully digital instrument cluster and central information display transform the inside of the 8 Series Gran Coupe into a feast for tech nerds' eyes. The 12.3-inch instrument cluster display is flanked by a central infotainment display of the same size - up from 10.3 inches in the previous model year - which is controlled by BMW's well-known iDrive touchpad, voice control, steering wheel controls, or simple touch inputs. This system is intuitive and easy enough to use, especially if you're familiar with the iDrive system.

The Gran Coupe's infotainment system features SiriusXM satellite radio, Bluetooth streaming, navigation, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto. Music is pumped through a standard 16-speaker Harman Kardon surround sound system with a 464-watt amplifier. A premium Bowers & Wilkins Diamond Surround Sound system is available at $3,400.
