2021 BMW X8 – the coolest crossover of the German brand

April 14, 2020 0 By autotimesnews

At the moment, the BMW X7 is the most expensive Bavarian crossover. But soon the situation will change thanks to the BMW X8 – the name of the model is already patented.

According to the authoritative BMWblog resource, trademarks X8 and X8 M are already registered. Thus, in addition to the standard model, a sports version will appear. The basis for the new items will be the platform and components of the BMW X7.

In turn, the new BMW X8 will be a kind of enlarged version of the BMW X6 – a large coupe-like crossover. This model will rely on luxury and a comfortable lounge. But all this will recede into the background in the case of the X8 M, the predicted value of which can reach 200,000 euros.

Traditionally, the M-version will receive a more aggressive design, stiffer suspension and sports settings. It is expected that under the hood will be the BMW M5 – V8 engine with a volume of 4.4 liters, the power of which for the X8 M will exceed 600 hp.

But that’s not all, because the company is preparing a hybrid modification with a return of more than 700 hp. The car will have to wait until next year.
