2024 BMW 8 Series Sedan

2024 BMW 8 Series Sedan in navy blue

Right, here’s a question.  What luxury sports sedan sits at the top of BMW’s tree?  Now that could be a bit of a loaded question because BMW are well supplied with sedans in their line-up of cars: the 2, 3, 5, 7, and 8 Series all offer a sedan.  All those in favour of sedans, say aye.  You’ll definitely hear an aye from me!

What makes BMW so appealing is that no matter which series of car you by, be it a 2, 5 or 8 Series model, BMW’s build quality doesn’t change.  It’s always first-class.  A 2 Series Sedan could be the best BMW sedan because of its smaller dimensions, fuel efficiency, and satisfying drive.  According to others, the 5 Series Sedan might be the best BMW sedan because of its perfect blend of comfort, performance, and safety.  It is all in the eye of the beholder, so the new BMW 8 Series Sedan will make the perfect BMW to some.  Now, here’s why. 


Aren’t the swoon-worthy details and the low-profile lines of the stunning 2024 BMW 8 Series Sedan attractive?  In Australia in 2024, we have only one BMW 8 Series Sedan we can buy: the BMW 840i M Sport RWD Sedan.  The sedan is beautiful, particularly when you take the time admiring its details and quality during a walk around the car as it’s parked up kerbside.  Even though the car is well over 5 metres long, its proportions are elegant, and it looks perfectly balanced.  The glass roof adds class, and the touches of chrome about the exterior have it looking stunning, accentuating its premium style.  Its metallic paint finish glistens in the warm sunlight, BMW offering Alpine White, Bluestone Metallic, Blue, Mineral White, Sunset Orange, and Black Sapphire for the latest 8 Series models.  The 840i M Sport Sedan also boasts a sports exhaust, spoilers, side skirts, a sports suspension, and 20-inch alloy wheels to complete the elegant picture.

Interior Class

You will have to part with over $200k (at the time of writing) to buy a new BMW 840i M Sport Sedan.  However, if you have got the money, then you won’t be disappointed.  BMW has issued the 840i Sedan with a stunning interior.  Impeccably finished with premium materials, the 8 Series is all about quality and luxury, remaining a perfectly comfortable car for any journey you care to take, long or short.  The leather interior is accentuated with a choice of woodgrain, metallic, or even high-gloss trim.  Four-zone climate control comes as standard.

The front seats’ occupants will enjoy seat ventilation and electronic adjustment, with heating, lumbar and memory functions as standard.  If you are sitting in the back seats, the new BMW 840i M Sport Sedan will accommodate you well.  These seats can also be heated, and there is a nice spacious feel back here.  Boot space is perhaps a little bit thin.  There are 280 litres behind the rear seats, which will open out to 440 litres if these split-fold seats are folded forward. 

If you are the lucky person who gets to drive the new 840i Sedan, then slip into the driver’s seat and enjoy the zone!  Here, you have a leather-clad steering wheel with multifunction buttons, behind which you’ll find a stunning digital instrument display with a full heads-up information display as well.  Set your destination on the satellite navigation package and follow your course.  Active cruise control has you keeping yourself cruising at the various road speed limits.  The BMW 8 Series even boasts speed zone reminders, road sign recognition, and collision avoidance technology. 

It is very easy to connect to the internet via the new sim preparation feature, and Bluetooth connectivity is seamless and easy between compatible devices.  Then there is the glorious multifunction control screen in the centre dash, which also boasts touch and gesture control.  You can also use the voice recognition software for command application.  The sublime 16-speaker sound is amazing thanks to the premium audio package.  DAB+ radio is standard. 


BMWs are safe vehicles, and the new 8 Series is no exception.  ABS brakes are always working in your favour, automatically sensing when a tire has stopped rotating under extreme braking.  Modulating the brake pressure in a controlled skid also increases the driver’s ability to turn the vehicle while braking.  The crash avoidance technology will also be on the alert.  The 2024 8 Series Sedan also boasts stability control, a suite of airbags, and seat belt pre-tensioners front and rear.  Even the overhead airbags are standard.  Then there is the car’s impeccable road handling combined with lane-keeping assistance.


The rear-wheel-drive (RWD) 2024 BMW 840i M Sport Sedan packs some serious performance potential under the hood for out on the road.  The in-line six-cylinder 3.0-litre turbo motor boasts a maximum of 250 kW power, and there is up to 500 Nm of torque available between 1600 and 4500 rpm.  The petrol ICE has DOHC with VVT and Lift technology, and it is superbly smooth and refined for any task.  You should see it returning decent fuel economy, averaging a range of around 8–9 litres/100 km on a combined city/urban/highway run.  The engine’s stop/start technology goes a long way to lowering the fuel use and emissions, especially in the city.  Capable of quick acceleration (0–100 km/h in 5.2 seconds) and having a limited top speed of 250 km/h, the 840i M Sport Sedan is a sheer joy to drive. 

If you’re wondering what other body styles make up the 2024 BMW 8 Series, there are convertible and coupé shapes alongside the sedan.  An impressive customer roadside assistance package comes with each new 8 Series vehicle and lasts for 7 years.  And you also get a solid 5-year /unlimited km warranty.  This is one of the best cars of 2024 in my opinion.
