Interior

The interior layout, fit and finish

After you’ve absorbed the sleek exterior, with its flowing profile and taut surfaces, you might expect things to be equally dramatic inside. Instead, you’ll find an agreeable interior that feels a lot like a plusher 5 Series. In terms of visual panache, though, arguably it falls some way behind the Mercedes S-Class Cabriolet and Bentley Continental GT Convertible.

BMW has always focused on restrained visual designs, preferring outright build quality to showiness. It’s here that the 8 Series scores highly, from the precise stitching on its leather dashboard to the numerous brushed chrome trim pieces, everything looks and feels well honed and tactile.
