2020 BMW M8 Gran Coupe Review

The 2020 BMW M8 Gran Coupe is a new four-door sedan version of BMW's also new M8 coupe. More practical than the M8 coupe, the M8 Gran Coupe sedan provides the same power and many of the same thrills as the coupe but with space for four adults. It's longer, wider and taller than the two-door, with a less aggressive rake to the front and rear windscreens to improve both headroom and visibility and create a larger and more usable trunk opening.

Rear passengers in particular should be pleased with these changes. The rear-seat room in the M8 lies somewhere between "cramped" and "nonexistent," but the Gran Coupe's extra space means more head-, legroom and shoulder room. BMW says there's room for five, but based on what we've seen, the Gran Coupe is really a four-person vehicle.

While the lesser M850i Gran Coupe already gets a healthy 523 horsepower from its turbocharged 4.4-liter V8, the M8 Gran Coupe turns up the same V8's wick to a full 600 hp — and that's just the base model. Go for the upgraded M8 Gran Coupe Competition and you'll get 617 horsepower. Both M8 Gran Coupe engines produce 553 lb-ft of torque, are paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission, and come standard with all-wheel drive.

There are a few other M8-specific upgrades, too. On top of standard features such as the 10.25-inch central infotainment display, heated armrests and a Harman Kardon sound system, the M8 gets a lightweight carbon-fiber roof, an adaptive suspension and M Sport seats. The Gran Coupe Competition adds items such as unique wheels, M Sport exhaust and a Track driving mode.

Which M8 Gran Coupe does Edmunds recommend?

The 2020 M8 Gran Coupe is available in two trims, the standard M8 and the M8 Competition. While the Competition packs a bit more performance, we suggest going with the base Gran Coupe. It's plenty capable and offers all of the same options and features.

BMW M8 Gran Coupe models

The 2020 BMW M8 Gran Coupe, like most current BMW M models, is available in two trims: the standard Gran Coupe and higher-performance Competition Gran Coupe. Both come with a turbocharged 4.4-liter V8, an eight-speed automatic transmission and all-wheel drive. The base power output is 600 hp and 553 lb-ft of torque. The Competition is slightly more powerful at 617 hp.

    2020 BMW 8 Series Gran Coupe and BMW M8 Competition Review and Test Drive

    2020 BMW 8 Series Gran Coupe and BMW M8 Competition Review and Test Drive

    [MUSIC PLAYING] MARK TAKAHASHI: Last year, BMW reintroduced the 8 Series after a long, long absence. They started with the 850i. But now they're starting to fill in the rest of the lineup. I'm here in Portugal at the Portimao race circuit. We're hitting kind of all of the 8 Series variants. [LAUGHTER] Before I get too deep into this M8, do me a favor. Hit Subscribe below. We have a lot of great content coming your way. [LAUGHS] There we go. Thankfully, they're giving us track time in the M8 Coupe, which is really the best place and only place to explore the potential of this car. So we have a pro driver that I'll be following for six laps. And it is a slick track. It has been raining all day. But it's not raining currently. So it shouldn't be too hairy. There's a whole lot to take into account with the center here as well as with all the various drive modes. It's actually rather confusing because you have so many menus to choose from. But that said, there are some shortcut buttons just like the M5, where you can pre-program them. During the briefing, they did say that in pretty much every drive mode, you can have up to 100% power sent to the rear wheels. And really, the front wheels get power only when you really need it. And in Sport Plus modes, it keeps a little more power going to the rears and limits a little more of what you can get to the front. So in a lot of ways, I'll be driving this much like I would just a regular rear drive car. One thing I really liked about the 850 is you had a lot of time to react when things do start sliding around. A lot of it has to do with a longer wheelbase gives you just a little bit more time to react. Oh, there we go, a little squirm. Woo! Come on, baby. Let's go! Whoa, that's a big dip. Yup, there's definitely some standing water here. But I'm really not even feeling much of a transition when the front wheels start getting power sent. It's nice and smooth and linear. And it's really giving me a lot of confidence-- hopefully, not too much confidence. Woo-hoo! We have these adaptive brake lights that flash when you're under heavy braking. Whoa, there's a good slide. It was very controlled, and I felt like I really didn't have to react too quickly or too aggressively with the countersteering. Man, this thing has torque. So now we just switch to Sport Plus mode, which should be a lot more aggressive, but also give me a little more latitude when it comes to stability control. It's not going to chop me off nearly as much. Should let me slide it a little bit more. Hard on the brakes-- oh, there goes, washing out. Now, I'm not getting a lot of feedback to the steering wheel. I had some understeer there. Whoa, there we go. Woo! [LAUGHS] Yeah, Sport Plus is definitely letting me get away with a lot more here. This is the place to experience it. There we go. Slide it. Slide it. There you go. When it washes out, there's really no foreshadowing of it with steering feedback. You don't feel the wheel lighten up when it loses traction like you would with old school hydraulic power steering. Unfortunately, that's just the way things are nowadays. Oof, I'm working up a pretty decent sweat here. My biggest fear coming into this drive was that maybe they'd make the ride quality just too stiff to remain a decent touring car. But they haven't. There's a big enough difference between Sport Plus and Comfort modes in the suspension, where you get the compliance when you want it. And when you want to have some fun on track, like I just did, you got that too. [MUSIC PLAYING] Body roll is pretty much nonexistent. And it really makes the standard 8 Series, like the 850, feel a little too soft, a little sloppy. But it's by no means soft or sloppy on its own. It's really just when you compare it, apples to apples, against something else. I would certainly have no problem living every day with a M850i. But as good as this M8 is, and as much range as it has for comfort and performance, yeah, I think it's worth the extra 20 grand for the M8. This is the competition. I don't really think that extra horsepower's that big of a deal, especially for how much more expensive the competition is. SPEAKER 1: Now we're going to do a cooldown lap. Just roll the speed. MARK TAKAHASHI: Woo! I survived. SPEAKER 1: Not so much braking. Let the breaks cool down. [MUSIC PLAYING] MARK TAKAHASHI: In addition to sampling the M8 Coupe and Convertible, we also have the opportunity to find out what the 8 Series Gran Coupe is all about, which is where I am right now. One of the greatest drawbacks to the regular 8 Series Coupe is rear-seat space. It's almost nonexistent. But with the extra doors and the extra length, I'm actually OK back here. Now, my hair is just barely brushing the headliner. But I'm honestly pretty comfortable back here. There's not a whole lot of thigh support, which also isn't that unusual for a car like this in the back seats. And there's not a lot of room under the front seats for my feet either. But I have plenty of knee room. Overall, the Gran Coupe solves the space problem for rear passengers. I'd be fine back here for a road trip. After driving the 8 Coupe Convertible and this 840 Gran Coupe, I can say yes, it is worth the 20 grand a step up from the 850 to the M8, mostly because of the suspension. It is far more athletic. It corners much flatter. And there's really not too much of a penalty when it comes to ride quality. As far as the 840, the advantages are very telling as well. You have a lot more rear passenger space. And for that kind of convenience without too much of a price premium, it's starting to make sense as the choice for most drivers. If you're looking for more space and more convenience, definitely look into the Gran Coupe. And here's the kicker-- there will be an M8 Gran Coupe. There's no date announced yet, but it is certainly on the way. For more information on the 8 Series, M8, as well as the Gran Coupe, head on over to edmunds.com.

    If you have a penchant for performance, the new 2020 BMW M8 is the athletic counterpoint to the still sporty but softer BMW 8 Series coupe.

    BMW M8 Gran Coupe vs. the competition

    BMW M8 Gran Coupe vs. Porsche Panamera

    The current-generation Panamera is a few years old at this point but remains one of the best-driving large sedans around. It offers a variety of powertrains, from a turbocharged V6 to a powerful plug-in hybrid, as well as the wagon-like Sport Turismo body style. Both cars are great but expect to pay more for the Porsche.

    BMW M8 Gran Coupe vs. Mercedes-Benz AMG GT

    The Mercedes-AMG GT sedan was designed with a similar ethos to the M8 Gran Coupe. Both are sleek and stylish takes on the traditional four-door sedan, compromising some utility and passenger space in the name of style. But we're underwhelmed by the Mercedes. It doesn't provide as much luxury and performance as we'd expect for a car at this price.

    Compare BMW M8 Gran Coupe & Mercedes-Benz AMG GT features

    BMW M8 Gran Coupe vs. BMW M5

    You can think of the BMW M5 as a M8 Gran Coupe in a more traditional sedan shape. It has the same turbocharged V8 and available Competition trim level. Compared to the M8, the M5 offers more interior room and a larger trunk. It costs less too. But from a styling standpoint, the M8 is going to turn more heads.
