I don't think they are trying to "fit" in.... they are innovating...
Let's suppose they give you the 3 cars but you can't look inside the hood, and the BMW is faster and handles better.
Would you pick any of the other 2 just cause they have a V8?
I think it's more of, BMW will even kick their butt with 2 cylinders less and saving fuel in the process with also a lighter car
That's my feeling
