Altogether, the BMW i8 is a stellar hybrid sports car with so much strength and no foreseeable weaknesses. 




Full Review

The 2016 BMW i8 features amazing style and technological advancements evidenced throughout the entire hybrid sports car, effectively making this one of the most exceptional vehicles of the current automotive design era. Well endowed with fresh flowing lines across the outer body and an upscale interior cabin, this vehicle is built to please and astonish drivers, passengers and pedestrians alike. The versatile infotainment likewise combines a multitude of functions, including navigation and driver assistance. But the biggest highlight of this vehicle is the hybrid drivetrain, which strikes a great balance between high performance and efficiency. Altogether, the BMW i8 dominates both the road and the competition in the hybrid sports car realm as a supercar of our time.

The brand new BMW i8 features one of the most remarkable futuristic designs to grace the hybrid title, contributing a low stance and fastback profile as one of the most attractive sports cars around. Its impressive body styling effectively emphasizes the horizontal lines stamped into the sheet metal, with all elements relatively combining to reduce aerodynamic drag. At the front end are sharp headlights and a shark-nose grille to establish a truly menacing presence on the road. But part of what makes this hybrid so appealing is the swing-up scissor doors that bring us back to classic muscle cars. The other part, and rightfully so, are the bright blue accents that highlight the twin kidney grille, arched aero door-sill and rear bumper. These two facets combine to solidify this vehicle among the revolutionary supercars of our time. There’s also a large air inlet embedded into the hood, rounding out this incredibly attractive sports car.

Carrying over into the interior cabin are more blue accents that flow with the dash and consoles in the form of LED ambient lighting and optional bright blue seat belts. The belts are a nice accompaniment to the black and ivory leather interior, which likewise blend with black soft touch plastics on the dash. There are also matte silver accents running through the dash as well, highlighting character lines and overall mixing with the variety of materials utilized throughout this incredibly upscale cabin. If its not already clear, this hybrid sports car is amazingly luxurious and features only the most advanced technological components.

A high centre stack and layered dashboard design likewise feature a floating center display screen that encompasses most of the BMW’s technological functions. Most notably, the incredibly helpful and engaging iDrive controller, which bundles infotainment, navigation and satellite radio and can be controlled through the smartphone app for remote access. The 360-degree camera view is also displayed on this screen for enhanced driver assistance, as well as heads-up display above the gauge cluster. Safety features are obviously lacking in this sports car, missing advanced cruise control and only featuring forward collision warning. This intense hybrid also features the world’s first laser high-beam headlights, but this element is not available in Canada and the United States due to safety regulations.

Despite all the outward style and technological advancement evidenced throughout this sports car, the real highlight of this vehicle can be found under the hood with BMW’s hybrid drivetrain. The i8 is generally more of a touring car than a track car, and thus isn’t as fast as you’d think. Instead, this drivetrain strives to maintain balance between sport performance and high efficiency. Starting at the rear axles, this plug-in hybrid holds a turbocharged 1.5-litre three-cylinder engine that produces 231 horsepower and 236 pound-feet of torque, running with a six-speed automatic gearbox on rear-wheel drive. Paired with this gasoline engine is a large 96-kilowatt electric motor (translating to 131 horsepower) that sits between the front wheels and is powered by a 7.1 kWh lithium-ion battery. Combining the electric and gas engine, the hybrid drivetrain outputs a total 362 horsepower. For a hybrid sports car, it doesn’t get much better than this powerful and equally fuel-efficient drivetrain.

As it stands, the 2016 BMW i8 is impeccably styled and features all-around sophistication and technological advancement for a truly remarkable hybrid sports car. If you’re looking for a supercar with amazing performance, creative design and fuel-efficiency – it doesn’t get much better than this.

Power and Performance:

This great piece of engineering receives a small 1.5 liter turbocharged three cylinder engine that produces 231 hp and sends power to the rear wheels. This engine is helped out by the electric motor that produces 131 hp and is supplied from Lithium Ion battery pack. Total power of the system is 357 horsepower and 420 lb-ft of torque. With these ratings, i8 falls just shy of getting a supercar moniker. Still, its performance is on par with supercars as it speeds from 0 to 60 in 4.4 seconds and develops a top speed of 155 mph. Thanks to 11.9 kWh lithium-ion battery, this plug-in offers about 23 miles of electric range alone with some high fuel efficiency figures in addition.

Interiors and Special Features:

Most notably, the incredibly helpful and engaging iDrive controller, which bundles infotainment, navigation and satellite radio and can be controlled through the smartphone app for remote access. The 360-degree camera view is also displayed on this screen for enhanced driver assistance, as well as heads-up display above the gauge cluster. Safety features are obviously lacking in this sports car, missing advanced cruise control and only featuring forward collision warning. This intense hybrid also features the world’s first laser high-beam headlights, but this element is not available in Canada and the United States due to safety regulations.

Safety features:

Otherwise, the BMW i8 coupe comes with the usual suite of safety equipment, including six airbags: a pair in the dash for front-seat occupants, side airbags in the backrests of the front seats, and side-curtain airbags to protect the heads of all passengers. One innovative safety feature is the world's first laser high-beam headlights, now offered on the i8 in Germany but not yet approved for sale in the U.S. A night-time demonstration of these lights, which have auto-dimming that senses the light of oncoming cars, appeared to give a clear, bright, almost daylight-quality pool of light for a far longer distance in front of the car than any other high beam we've experienced.
