2020 BMW M8 Gran Coupe
“Not Really a Coupe, But it Looks and Acts like One”
BMW can call it whatever it wants, but a true coupe has only two doors while a sedan comes with four. Under BMW’s new nomenclature, their four-door hatchback model cars are now referred to not as sedans, but rather as “Gran Coupes” including everything from the BMW 2-Series through the X6. Crossover or SUV Bimmers with four doors are now designated as “Sports Activity Coupes “ or SAVs.
Additionally, BMW now also uses the numeral 8 instead of 6 when referring to their luxurious upscale grand tourers, with the 8-series Gran Coupe taking the top position as the best looking, classiest and most spacious while providing comfortable seating for five adults and their personal lifestyle gear, with practical, comfortable rear seat accommodations, despite the fact that the back seat’s headroom is encroached upon. The BMW M8 Gran Coupe is longer than its two-door stablemates and also provides more cargo space.
