BMW i8 Coupe practicality & boot space

Due to the i8 Coupe’s interior layout – and its party-piece doors – it’s not the most practical car, but it’s still usable for something so sporty

The BMW i8’s interior is nicely trimmed, but it does feel a little cramped in the front due to the heavily raked windscreen, so visibility isn’t ideal. It’s even smaller in the rear, where access to those two small rear seats is difficult. These will most likely be used for children or extra storage to compliment the small boot.

BMW i8 Coupe interior space, storage & comfort

Storage space in the i8 is limited to the centre-console bin and cup-holders, plus a small glovebox. The compact interior means there isn’t really room for much more than a few phones and wallets.

Due to the stylish and unusual doors, entry isn’t the easiest; thanks to the relationship between the roof and the height of the seat you have to gently lower yourself in. However, the seats are comfortable in the front.

Boot space

There’s just 154 litres of luggage space under the rear cover of the i8, so most owners will use the two small rear seats as extra luggage space.

The boot itself will swallow two squashy weekend bags, but if you’re heading away for a longer period or have any bulkier items, you might have to put them behind the front seats.
