  • What's New for 1996

    The high-performance 850CSi has been dropped. The remaining 850Ci and 840Ci models now feature the speed-sensitive variable assist steering system previously available only on the 850Ci. The 840Ci gets two upgrades previously exclusive to the V12 model: the Steptronic automatic transmission and bird's eye maple interior trim. A slightly larger displacement for the V8 engine results in more torque (310 lb-ft vs. 295 lb-ft) at lower rpm but horsepower remains at 282. Both models receive a redesigned audio system and automatic-locking retractor seatbelts to better accommodate child seats.
