2017 BMW i8 Review
BMW, the maker of “the ultimate driving machines” seems to be continuing the creative standard through its 2017 lineup of vehicles for other automobiles to follow. The 2017 BMW i8 is a vehicle that is being boasted as having it all. The design makes it look very futuristic and that makes it standout from the crowd. It possesses a dynamic concept of what one would expect in a sports car of this caliber. The company has really redefined what a hybrid car can be in this age. Let’s go over what the all new 2017 BMW i8 has to offer.
The exterior is comprised of fiber and aluminum in order to contribute to the vehicle’s light weight features. It is a definite head turner with its laser headlights that lend to its streamline sports look. The large bumper, impressive looking grille, and two butterfly doors that flip up give the model an overall futuristic feel. The i8 possesses quality suspension and a dynamically featured engine. Color choices for the 2017 BMW i8 include black, red, green, and silver. Wow!
The interior of the 2017 BMW i8 boasts one of the finest quality leather seats you can currently find in any model of vehicles. Safety is the priority with its automatic airbags and well designed seat belts that not only make you look good driving this vehicle, but safe too. The guiding wheel system allows driving to be as easy and comfortable as possible. The i8 also has availability of 4G internet, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth along with its friendly built-in USB ports. The driver and passenger seats are well-apart from each other considering the overall size of the car. There are tiny backseats but it is best to use them for carrying luggage.
With the choice of two sets of drive trains, this high powered vehicle is able to produce 320 HP with its 2.0 liter inline 4-engine. For those that are interested in the electrical motor, they can expect 204 HP. The choices don’t end here, as you can have 480 HP with the 3.0 liter engine or 109 HP with the electric motor. The clutch system is impressive with its sic speed dual system that allows for reaching 0 to 60 mph within a mere 3. 5 seconds. The car also features an auto-dimming mirror, a heads-up display, a top-view camera, automatic dual-zone climate control, and rear and front parking mirrors. Plenty of high quality of options!
