BMW i8

Professional Reviews

  • “Every i8 trip begins with a grand door-opening spectacle. A-pillar hinges split the difference between the scissor and gull-wing formats. Scullwing?” — Car and Driver
  • “The best engine notes are cued by the Aisin six-speed automatic's upshifts. Every rip-braap! from the pipes cleanses the mind of hybrid notions.” — Car and Driver
  • “ The instrument cluster is too small and marked with graphics difficult to read at a glance. We'd willingly trade some of the electric-propulsion info for a more ­legible tach.” — Car and Driver
  • “When was the last time a production car looked so much like it had escaped from an auto show stand?” — Car and Driver
  • “There's significant torque-fill at low rpm, with the motors stepping in to help out while the turbo spools, and this catapults the car out of slow turns so well that a Subaru STI was repeatedly left wheezing behind me.” — Road & Track
  • “In Sport mode, the i8's combination of torque, traction, and agility are astounding. At one point during this test, an interested observer asked me what it was like to drive. My instinctive response was "fast."” — Road & Track
  • “A small, one-word caveat: understeer. For all Munich's talk of balanced weight distribution and a center of gravity just 18 inches off the ground, the front tire choice shows that BMW has been cautious with the i8's fundamental grip.” — Road & Track
  • “Fast getaways should be a given, considering the BMW's jaw-dropping 3.8-second surge to 60 miles per hour.” — New York Times
  • “Reminiscent of the 6 Series, the interior is intimate and luxurious, including enviro-friendly leather and a 10.2-inch iDrive screen, but one could quibble that the cabin doesn't match the avant-garde dazzle of the exterior. The efficiency-coaching digital driver's displays are cramped and not terribly exciting.” — New York Times
