The 2019 BMW X8 is taking shape which will be the biggest crossover SUV to be produced by the company. While no official announcement has been made, rumor sites and industry experts indicate the model may be launched in 2019. Like several other luxury automobile companies, BMW is also focusing on revamping its car portfolio. BMW is also keen on introducing few new models to take on the rivals. The flagship X7 is yet to be launched globally but the model is making enough buzz. However, from recent developments, it seems the X7 is ultimately not going to be the biggest car from the stable of the iconic German carmaker!
2019 BMW X8 – Design and Features Specs
The BMW X8 2018 is going to be a very large SUV, much on the scale of Bentley Bentayga or Rolls Royce Cullinan. It will sport typical BMW design traits like dual split kidney shaped grille and angular headlamps at front. Since it is a top end model, features like large alloy wheels, panoramic sunroof and DRL would be there. It will be based on the company’s CLAR platform to ensure good durability and aerodynamic design. The cabin is likely to be made with luxurious materials and features like customizable ambient lighting and 3 zone climate control are expected. It may have three rows of seats. It is not known if the car will have a single trim or more.
BMW X8 2019 will feature latest safety technologies and the company’s iDrive in-car infotainment system.
2019 BMW X8 – Speculated Powertrains
The BMW X8 2019 will be launched with very powerful engines running on gasoline. A high-performance hybrid version cannot be ruled out either.
2019 BMW X8 – Price and Availability
The car may be launched in late 2018 and expected price could be close to $60,000 to $90,000.
BMW X8 could become the flagship SUV crossover the company wants it to be. However, a balance of features and performance is what it needs to achieve that target.
