BMW helps keep the small sports car segment alive with its Z4 roadster. Now in its third generation, launched just last year, the car comes solely as a convertible. It offers a four or six-cylinder engine, and the chassis was used to create the Toyota Supra coupe as its sibling.
What's New / Key Changes from Last Year
Just a few years old, no major changes occur for the BMW Z4 this year.
BMW offers two grades of the Z4, both with an eight-speed automatic and rear drive. The first is the Z4 sDrive30i, which comes with a 255 hp 2.0L turbo-four, the second the Z4 M40i which has a 382 hp 3.0L turbo I6.
30i Z4 models come with a heated steering wheel and radar cruise control, remote start, variable sport steering, M Sport trim, auto-dimming mirror, heated power M Sport seats, leatherette dash, BMW Live Cockpit Professional with navigation, and Apple CarPlay.
M40i models add larger wheels, M Sport brakes, M Sport differential, Adaptive M Suspension, and adaptive LED lights.
Key packages on M40i include Driver assistance with parking assistant and stop & go cruise and a Premium Package that adds Harman Kardon audio, Driving Assistant, head-up display, WiFi hotspot, and wireless charging.
The same packages are offered on 30i, as is an M Sport performance package with Sport differential and Adaptive M Suspension.
The BMW Z4 is estimated to return 9.3 L/100 km city, 7.3 highway with the 2.0L four and 10.7/8.0 with the six.
The BMW Z4 competes with the Porsche Boxster most directly, but also the Chevrolet Corvette, Ford Mustang, Audi TT Roadster, and even BMW's own 2 Series cabriolet.
