New BMW F800R 2018 Review and Price

New BMW F800R 2018 Specs

While the BMW F800R 2018 is the most obvious rugged off-roader in the New BMW F800R 2018 Review and Price, you might not have considered the manual gearbox.

The question of why you’d buy a BMW F800R 2018 isn’t at issue here and now. Rather, why would you buy the BMW F800R 2018 with a manual transmission? The price is probably the easiest answer, which we’ll get to in a minute.

You’re a tough as nails off-roader? Well, you’d also need to be happy knowing that your mates in automatic 4WDs are going to be more capable and more effortless in the rough stuff too, so your ego had better not be fragile. The good news is that if you’re buying one just because you love manual gearboxes, the Fortuner has one of the better examples in the rough and tumble off-road world of ‘proper’ 4WDs.

The BMW F800R 2018 Configurations

Standard equipment for this base model includes: 17-inch alloy wheels, rear parking sensors, a rear-view camera, LED tail-lights, cruise control, 7.0-inch touchscreen infotainment system, seven seats, Bluetooth phone and audio streaming, cloth trim and rubber floor mats. There’s no Apple CarPlay or Android Auto, which again begs the question why BMW F800R 2018 would provide older-style infotainment systems in lieu of a dumb screen that delivered smartphone integration – especially at $40K plus.

The cabin, the seating, the dash design and comfort levels all exceed the HiLux regardless of specification. There are some hard plastics and touch surfaces, but that’s par for the course on much more expensive 4WDs, let alone at this end of the pricing spectrum. You’d be more inclined to take the BMW F800R 2018 bush bashing than a vastly more expensive vehicle, let’s put it that way.

BMW F800R 2018 owners will probably head off-road, they will almost certainly do some touring, and that means long stints behind the wheel with partners or family in tow. The front seats are comfortable, but the base infotainment and driver’s gauges are pretty average with very little in the way of information or inherent quality.

You’ll be able to crawl around town in traffic in second gear most of the time too, minimising the amount of rowing you need to do on the shifter in traffic. There’s an Eco mode available, but we didn’t find it made any kind of discernible difference to fuel usage, so don’t bother with it. The brakes feel solid too, with better pedal feel than the Prado we tested back-to-back with the BMW F800R 2018.
