Here’s What BMW Is Bringing To The 2019 LA Auto Show

BMW’s stand at the LA Auto Show will be choke full of new models, many of which will have their world premieres.

BMW M8 Gran Coupe

The first model to celebrate its outing in front of the public is the M8 Gran Coupe, the four-door variant of the M8 Coupe. The powertrain remains the same, meaning a twin-turbo 592 HP 4.4-liter V8 engine paired to an eight-speed automatic transmission and a switchable all-wheel drive system, only here you can fit actual adult passengers in the back, a claim the M8 Coupe sadly can’t make.

Go for the M8 Competition Gran Coupe and you’ll get 617 HP, along with a 0-62 mph (100km/h) in just 3.2 seconds. Tick the right options and acceleration won’t stop until you hit 190 mph (305 km/h). That’s some solid performance figures for one of the prettiest BMW models in recent years.

BMW X5 M & X6 M

The new BMW X5 M and X6 M will have their motorshow premiere in Los Angeles, introducing the same powertrain with the M8 and M5 into the full-size SUV segment. Their aggressive appearance is now matched by their ability to slingshot themselves on the road to 62 mph (100 km/h) in as low as 3.8 seconds.

BMW 2-Series Gran Coupe

The first-ever 2 Series Gran Coupe will make its world premiere as well, posing as the nemesis of the Mercedes CLA Coupe; BMW’s new compact four-door rides on the same front-drive platform with the latest 1 Series, offering a more dynamic styling with pronounced shoulders, frameless door windows and with powerful four-cylinder turbo engines. The new 2 Series Gran Coupe will be offered in 228i xDrive and 235i xDrive versions in the US, marketed as the brand’s new entry-level model from March 2020.


Last but not least, we get the new and highly anticipated M2 CS; a more hardcore edition of the compact performance model that features things like a carbon-fiber roof for a lower center of gravity along with more carbon components for extra lightness, a 444 HP version of the turbocharged 3.0-liter straight-six engine and -for the first time in an M2- adaptive M suspension.

The 2019 Los Angeles Auto Show opens its gates on November 22, so stay tuned for the full show coverage.

    I hope they have a different colour on the 8GC. That burgundy looks a little too muddied to really show off the lines.

    Only the 8 Series Stinger looks good.
