Compared To Ferrari GTC4Lusso 2017



For enhanced safety, the front and rear seat shoulder belts of the BMW i8 have pretensioners to tighten the seatbelts and eliminate dangerous slack in the event of a collision. The Ferrari GTC4Lusso doesn’t offer pretensioners for the rear seat belts.

The i8 has standard City Collision Mitigation, which use forward mounted sensors to warn the driver of a possible collision ahead. If the driver doesn’t react and the system determines a collision is imminent, it automatically applies the brakes at full-force in order to reduce the force of the crash or avoid it altogether. The GTC4Lusso doesn\'t offer collision warning or crash mitigation brakes.

The i8 has standard BMW Assist, which uses a global positioning satellite (GPS) receiver and a cellular system to remotely unlock your doors if you lock your keys in, help track down your vehicle if it’s stolen or send emergency personnel to the scene if any airbags deploy. The GTC4Lusso doesn’t offer a GPS response system, only a navigation computer with no live response for emergencies, so if you’re involved in an accident and you’re incapacitated help may not come as quickly.

Both the i8 and the GTC4Lusso have standard driver and passenger frontal airbags, front side-impact airbags, side-impact head airbags, four-wheel antilock brakes, all wheel drive, traction control, electronic stability systems to prevent skidding, daytime running lights and rearview cameras.
