2019 BMW 8-Series vs. 2019 Jeep Wrangler


With an elegant exterior and stylish cabin, the 2019 BMW 8-Series declares its presence with authority. It impresses with its powerful engine and great handling that make driving this Bimmer a blast. It also has a lot to offer in terms of high-end technology and advanced safety features.

The 2019 Jeep Wrangler features iconic styling that dates all the way to the World War II. With a practical interior and a great infotainment system, it continues to charm buyers but not quite as much as effortlessly as the 2019 BMW 8 series does. Think of it as any other SUV only that it can deliver even on rough terrains.

Design & Style

The 2019 BMW 8-Series not only looks great but it also feels great. The story is similar when it comes to the interior. It boasts a flashy cabin with a great design that is both modern and minimalist. Its cabin is made up of premium materials. The front seats are supportive and have a lot of space around them. However, the rear seats offer less legroom. The trunk space is also quite generous.

Providing a blend of modern and vintage Jeep characteristics, the 2019 Jeep Wrangler does not fail to impress. The interior is well designed, practical and offers plenty of legroom. However, the rear view is compromised by the roof pillars. It also offers enough trunk space.

Technology & Safety

The 2019 BMW 8-Series comes with the user-friendly iDrive infotainment system that features brilliant graphics and exceptional response. It comes with a 16-speaker audio system, navigation, satellite radio, Bluetooth connectivity, two USB ports, Wi-Fi connectivity and Apple CarPlay. However you need to renew the CarPlay subscription after the first year.  In terms of safety, the 8-Series comes with the BMW’s Active Driving Assistant package. Options are also available in night vision assist, animal detection, front cross traffic alert and lane keep assist.

The 2019 Jeep Wrangler features the Uconnect infotainment system. It is easy to use and responds quickly. It comes with a 9-speaker audio system, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Navigation is also available as an option.  It is very sad that Jeep offers very few optional driver assistance features. These are the likes of blind-spot monitoring, rear parking sensors and rear cross-traffic alert.


The 2019 BMW 8-Series is powered by a twin-turbo V8 engine. With 523 horsepower, the engine moves the heavy car with ease. It accelerates pretty quickly and snaps off to 60mph in just 3.6 seconds.  This is almost half the time taken by the 2019 Jeep Wrangler (6 seconds).  This Bimmer is smooth and composed making it fun to drive. It handles very well and offers a cushioned ride.  It earns 18mpg in city driving and 25mpg on the highway.

The base 285 horsepower 3.6-liter V-6 runs the 2019 Jeep Wrangler. A turbocharged 4-cylinder engine is also available as an option and it is connected to an electric motor. It provides some little additional power. The Wrangler is a machine that is ready to take you to tough terrains as it features all-wheel drive mode. It has slightly better handling than the previous model but not to the level of a refined modern day SUV. It gets a rating of 18mpg in city driving and 23mpg on the highway

The Bottom Line

The 2019 BMW 8-Series impresses with its powerful engine, quick acceleration and superior quality technology. It offers an array of safety features that do not come standard in the 2019 Jeep Wrangler. It is also commendable for its stylish exterior and flashy cabin. These make the 2019 BMW 8-Series a winner.
