2014 BMW i8 Review

What's New for 2014
The 2014 BMW i8 is an all-new model.
Based on the BMW Vision EfficientDynamics concept car shown a few years
ago, the 2014 BMW i8 represents the German automaker's vision of a
high-performance plug-in hybrid. If this is what the future looks like,
sign us up. Zero to 62 mph in 4.4 seconds? A full charge in three hours
from a regular garage outlet? Approximately 95 mpg? Yes, please.
For the i8, BMW chops its classic 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder engine
formula in half. The i8 uses a turbocharged 1.5-liter inline three-cylinder
paired with an electric motor and lithium-ion battery pack. The
three-cylinder drives the rear wheels through a six-speed automatic
transmission, while the electric motor powers the front wheels through a
The engine and electric motor combine for 362 horsepower, 420 pound-feet
of torque and all-wheel-drive performance, all integrated into a chassis
that is 10 pounds lighter and 1.5 inches longer than the 3 Series. The i8
also delivers stellar handling thanks to 50/50 weight distribution and a
low, centrally mounted battery pack, although standard 20-inch wheels seem
like a suspect choice for maximizing corner-to-corner performance.
BMW says the i8 can also travel 22 miles and reach a top speed of 75 mph on
electrons alone. Uncorked with the gasoline engine in the lead, it will
reach a top speed of 155 mph. Sounds like a pretty good future to us.
Lightweight construction helps bring lofty performance within reach,
notably an aluminum chassis, chemically hardened glass (similar to that
used in smartphones) and extensive use of carbon-fiber-reinforced panels
within the 2+2 passenger cabin. Those plus-2 rear seats are small, however,
smaller than even a Porsche 911's, and are best considered auxiliary
luggage space. Even settling into the front seats requires some practice
given its unique scissor-lift-style doors.
We drove a recent i8 prototype and found the i8's easy thrust in
all-electric mode a close match for the Tesla Model S. In its Sport mode
(there are also Comfort and Eco Pro settings), the i8 further awakens,
feeling light, agile and averse to body roll. The hybrid never quite
overwhelms with acceleration, but it also never feels winded, the electric
motor's torque nicely covering for the small turbo as the latter winds up to deliver its power
Whatever the i8 lacks in competitive performance, it won't lack for style.
Its low-slung profile is punctuated by standard U-shaped LED headlights.
You can even order the i8 with laser headlights where regulations allow
(sorry, U.S. shoppers). Inside, a multitiered and layered cockpit design
uses recycled materials and naturally treated leather for upholstery and
panel surfaces Like the smaller i3 electric car, the i8 will offer three
trim levels -- Mega, Giga and Tera -- all with varying degrees of sport and
The 2014 BMW i8 arrives in the spring and starts around $136,000. That's
well above its most obvious target, the Tesla Model S, and that kind of
money also buys a lot of Porsche 911. Performance aficionados won't likely
be swayed and may even look across the BMW lineup to the "M" cars. But for
the hybrid buyer seeking power, performance and efficiency through a lower
profile, the 2014 BMW i8 presents a unique choice.
Check back for more information on the 2014 BMW i8, including specs,
driving impressions and buying advice as it becomes available.

2004 BMW 116i Review,Start Up, Engine, and In Depth Tour
For more in depth reviews check my channel:
Filmed by: Tomaž Kožar Jesenice
The 2011 BMW 1-Series ranks 4 out of 8 Upscale Small Cars. This ranking is
based on our analysis of 47 published reviews and test drives of the BMW
1-Series, and our analysis of reliability and safety data.
The 2011 BMW 1-Series leads the upscale small car class when it comes to
performance. Unfortunately, once you start adding options and features, it
also leads the class when it comes to price.
Upscale small cars are niche vehicles, meant for buyers who don't need a
lot of space or luxury, but who do want excellent driving dynamics and an
upscale feel. For buyers with the cash to spend on a small coupe or
convertible that drives like a sports car, reviewers say that the BMW
1-Series is an excellent choice.
While it's by no means practical, reviewers say the 1-Series lives up to
the BMW name. The Washington Post says it's "the kind of car loved by
people who love driving -- rear-wheel drive, diminutive yet gifted with
power (in this case, 300 horsepower delivered by an
inline six-cylinder engine) and wonderfully agile on surfaces such as
Angola Road [in upstate New York], which twists, turns, dips, disappears
and reappears around curves."
Once the focus is taken off performance, however, the 1-Series stumbles a
bit. Reviewers complain about its cramped interior. Many also dislike the
styling on the 1-Series, calling it misshapen and odd-looking. Its fuel
economy isn't great for a small car, and while its base price is
reasonable, it can quickly climb as you move up from the base trim and
start adding options.
Other Cars to Consider
Despite praising its performance, not all reviewers are on board with the
1-Series. While the base models are affordable (for BMW), the
best-performing higher trims rival the larger BMW 3-Series in price. Plus,
reviewers say that the 3-Series is better looking and more comfortable. If
you're comparing the 1-Series to other upscale small cars, it's a
compelling choice. But, in the grand scheme of things, you may be able to
get more space, better performance and slicker styling by going with the
If you're watching your budget, reviewers say that the Volkswagen GTI
offers a combination of upscale amenities, thrilling performance and
reasonable pricing (it starts at about $5,500 less than the 1-Series) that
leads the class. Plus, the GTI is available with four passenger doors and a
back seat that's useable -- a real contrast to the tiny space in the rear
of the 1-Series. Reviewers also recommend the Audi A3 for its available
all-wheel drive system and well-crafted interior. The A3 is even available
with a diesel engine that gets excellent gas mileage.
Details: 2011 BMW 1-Series
The 2011 BMW 1-Series has two trims: the 128i and 135i. Both are available
as either a coupe or a convertible. Both have a six-cylinder engine, but
the 135i is turbocharged. For 2011,
changes to the 1-Series are slight. The engine in the 135i has been
retuned; while the horsepower rating is the
same, it hits maximum power at a lower rpm. Also new for 2011 is an
available dual-clutch automatic transmission for the 135i.The BMW 1-Series
is an exceptional performer. Reviewers praise BMW for successfully
transplanting the brand's DNA into the 1-Series. Edmunds says, "Under the
hood are the same powerful engine choices as in the marque's more expensive
and larger 3 Series." That said, beware of the 1-Series's fuel economy,
which is well below the competition's. Read More
1-Series Exterior - 7.3 (Good)
Many reviewers describe the BMW 1-Series as a shrunken 3-Series, but as the
Detroit News points out, "Shrinkage is not always good." The styling on
the 1-Series remains a sore spot with reviewers. Read More
1-Series Interior - 6.8 (Mediocre)
The 1-Series is seriously lacking in rear-seat comfort, though it does have
lots of room in the front seats, as well as high-quality materials and
construction. Still, reviewers say that even by small car standards, the
back seat is too tight. Read More
1-Series Safety - NA
The 2011 BMW 1-Series has not been crash tested by either the federal
government or insurance industry, but does provide a comprehensive list of
standard safety features. Read More
1-Series Reliability - NA
The BMW 1-Series comes with BMW's Ultimate Service Warranty for the first
four years or 50,000 miles

The BMW 1 Series is engaging to drive, thanks to sharp handling and
communicative steering. The diesel engines are refined and frugal, and
residual values are solid.
