2021 BMW M8 Gran Coupe Infotainment, Seating and Interior Features

Sitting at the top of the lineup in the BMW’s stable, the M8 is a worthy upgrade over the standard 8-series in the luxury sports sedan segment. For 2021 MY, BMW has skipped the Coupe and Convertible variants owing to supply chain issues due to the pandemic. The 2021 BMW M8 Gran Coupe is the only available option right now for 2021 MY and the Competition trim is now offered as a package. For the year, BMW also delivers Android Auto as standard in the M8 interior.

With the added benefit of 4-doors, the 2021 M8 Gran Coupe comes with a price tag of $131,995 and the Competition package costs an extra $13,000. Since M8 is the sportier version of the flagship BMW 8-Series sedan, there is also no shortage of features on offer. The 2021 M8 is widely known for its sharp and sporty exterior, mansion-like interior, staggering performance, and top-notch safety. With that being said, it faces fierce competition from the likes of the Porsche Panamera Turbo S, Mercedes-AMG GT 63 4-door Coupe, and Audi RS7 Sportback.

2021 BMW M8 Gran Coupe Interior Design, Dimensions, and Comfort

The 2021 M8 Gran Coupe comes with a world-class cabin, styling, and comfort. To offset weight which is essential for a performance sedan like M8, BMW delivered the interior with carbon fiber elements all over. Moreover, the interior gets M Sport-specific elements as well. The dash design feels exquisite, the instrument panel comes in a Nappa leather finish; you can also choose from a variety of color schemes as well. You can find a large 10.25-inch touchscreen at the center of the dash.

Rear Row (Head/Shoulder/Leg) (in.)

37.1/54.6/36.6

Along with that, you can also find a 12.3-inch fully digital instrument cluster and a head-up display. As standard, you also get a heated leather-wrapped M-Sport steering wheel and Adaptive M suspension with twin-tube gas-pressure shock absorbers. Being a high-performance sedan, we expected the ride quality to be harsh but to our surprise, it is astonishingly good in soaking up bumps. Coming to the seats, as standard, the 2021 BMW M8 Gran Coupe can seat five people. The seats come wrapped in Merino leather upholstery in black or Silverstone color as standard and 10 color options as well. 

But you can also opt for full Merino and Alcantara leather-trimmed seats. The front row comes equipped with power-adjustable M-Sport bucket seats with a backlit M8 logo integrated into the front headrest, and a memory system for the driver's seat. For better comfort and support, the seats come with cushion extension, bolsters, 4-way lumbar support, and cushion tilt. Apart from these, they also come with heating and ventilation functions. Coming to the rear, it can seat three people but it is better left for kids as the low-slung roofline affects headroom.

All cars in the competition offer seats for 5 people except the Panamera Turbo S which comes standard with 4 individual seats. Audi RS 7 comes with a tech-rich, racy and futuristic interior but the headroom is a bit less than what rivals offer.

2021 BMW M8 Gran Coupe Infotainment

The 2021 M8 Gran Coupe comes equipped with a 10.25-inch HD touchscreen display powered by the latest version of BMW’s iDrive 7.0 interface. BMW’s iDrive infotainment is one of the most intuitive in the industry and navigating between the menus is a breeze. The display is crisp and visible under sunlight as well. The interface can be controlled via touch as well via rotary controllers on the console.

Apart from that, you also get a standard Live Cockpit Professional that features a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster and head-up display. Standard infotainment features include Apple CarPlay, SiriusXM satellite radio, navigation, Bluetooth, two USB ports, wireless device charging, and a Wi-Fi hotspot spot. For 2021 MY, Android Auto is added to the features list as well. For your music needs, you also get a 464-watt 16-speaker Harman Kardon premium audio system.

2021 BMW M8 Gran Coupe Cargo Capacity

Unlike most sports cars, the 2021 BMW M8 Gran Coupe comes with a decent cargo trunk. As standard, the M8 offers about 11 cu-ft cargo space. This is not the best there is but still, some sports cars offer even less. This is plenty enough for 3-4 bags.

The cargo lid is wide enough to allow easy loading and unloading. The cargo floor can be adjusted thanks to the Adaptive M-Suspension. Moreover, you also get an electronic remote trunk release as standard.

2021 Audi RS 7 Sportback comes with a hatchback-style liftgate and that translates to better cargo space and ease of access. The RS 7 offers nearly 25 cu-ft of cargo space and this is a rare sight in a performance car like this. The Panamera too has considerably better cargo space while the AMG GT 63 also does marginally better than M8 in this regard. 

Additional Interior Storage Spaces

You get a few secondary storage cubby spaces. The front row comes with a mobile compartment in the lower dashboard, dual cup holders, a storage cubby under the armrest, and two-door bins. The rear row comes with two cup holders, seatback pockets, and an under-seat storage compartment. 

2021 BMW M8 Gran Coupe Creature Comforts

The 2021 M8 Gran Coupe is a flagship performance in BMW’s lineup and comes with an extensive list of creature comforts. As standard, you get extended Merino leather upholstery, power-adjustable M Sport bucket seats with cushion extension and tilt, and 4-way power lumbar support, heated and ventilated front seats. 

Besides that, you also get Advanced vehicle & key memory, Comfort Access keyless entry, remote start, dual-zone automatic climate control with a micro-filter ventilation system, heated, leather-wrapped steering wheel, and Nappa Leather finish, Carbon fiber interior trim, M Seat belts, and ambient interior lighting too. Full Merino leather upholstery, Alcantara upholstery, piano black interior trim, and gray wood interior trim are available as options.

Final Verdict

The 2021 BMW M8 Gran Coupe comes with one of the best interior designs and styling in the segment. The modern design layout, carbon fiber elements, exquisite choice of materials, ergonomics and ride quality all add to an excellent driving experience. You also get Android Auto for 2021 MY which was sidelined in previous models. The only caveat is its cargo capacity but then the positives outshine the negatives considerably. Make sure to check all the boxes including the Comfort Seating pack, Alcantara headliner, and Bowers & Wilkins premium sound system while configuring your build for a full-on immersive experience.
