Coupe-Stretched Elegance: 2020 BMW M850i Gran Coupe

The 2020 BMW M850i Gran Coupe isn’t the first four-door to call itself a coupe, but it may be the most elegant. Realizing that there was an expanding market for its high-end 8 series coupe, BMW stretched the vehicle out. Its swanky interior is longer and taller and now has room for five.

The Gran Coupe will be available with a choice of two engines, a powerful 335 horsepower six-cylinder, or a brutish 523 horsepower V-8. The car is 9 inches longer than the 8-series Classic. It is also 1.2 inches wider and 2.2 inches taller. A panoramic moonroof is standard and incorporates the antenna so there’s no shark fin.

Leather trim is standard, and there is an incredible array of pricey paint upgrades. Optional Individual paint finishes include Dravit Grey Metallic, Tanzanite Blue II Metallic, Aventurin Red Metallic for $1,950 each. The most expensive color you can get in the U.S. is the Frozen Bluestone Metallic which costs $5,000. If you feel like these are not enough options, you can travel to Europe to buy the car in Pure Metal Silver for a cool €8,800, or about $9,500.

Standard equipment includes forward-collision warning and low-speed automated emergency braking. Of course, a full slate of driver-assistance systems including adaptive cruise control and blind-spot monitoring is also available. A large head-up display is also standard and can alert you to speed limits and no-passing zones, as well as vehicle speed and navigational instructions. The Gran Coupe uses BMW’s iDrive 7 infotainment system and is displayed across a 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster and 10.3-inch center screen.

Prices start at $84,900 for the new 2020 840i Gran Coupe, $87,800 for the 840i xDrive Gran Coupe and $108,900 for the M850i xDrive Gran Coupe.
