Top Gears Top Cars!
The results from the Top Gear awards are in and the BMW i8 has come out on top getting the title of Top Gears Car of the Year so let’s take a look at why the BMW i8 is so popular …………
The BMW i8 has created the perfect balance between driving experience and efficiency. As a plug in hybrid it will ease the minds of all those feeling guilty about driving gas guzzlers, it is super-efficient due to aerodynamic design and lightweight construction using carbon. Yet on the surface it is still a sleek, sexy sports car!
As well as offering the same low emissions and consumption of a compact car - the BMW i8 has all the connectivity we have come to expect. With BMW i ConnectedDrive solutions everything is at your fingertips from navigation to automatic reminders when a service is due. Along with this are the usual feature; parking sensors, head-up display, bluetooth, cruise control ….the list is endless so it’s no wonder the BMW i8 currently has a wait time of a year! Top Gear believe the i8 is a “genuine game changer” that stands “head and shoulders above the rest.”
