BMW’s constant pursuit of driving perfection has led to innovation once again with the all-new BMW Z4 Roadster. Meticulously honed and expertly crafted, the new Z4 boasts a perfect 50:50 weight distribution that makes it incredibly nimble and responsive on the road, delivering on the promise of top-down, open-road, zero-compromise driving.
The 2019 BMW Z4 sDrive30i Roadster arrives in March 2019, bringing with it a new and even more powerful 2.0-liter BMW TwinPower Turbocharged engine. Leveraging the latest version of BMW’s High Precision Injection system, this engine delivers 255 horsepower and 295 lb-ft of peak torque — an improvement of 15 horsepower and 35 lb-ft of torque over its predecessor — and enables a 5.2-second sprint from 0-60 mph.
Further enhancing the BMW Z4’s exceptional performance capabilities is a new chassis that focuses on delivering a balance of excitement and comfort. The BMW Z4 boasts a new double-joint spring strut suspension in the front and the first five-link rear suspension used in a BMW Roadster, and the intelligent use of lightweight and ultra-rigid materials improves the Z4’s agility and precision. Standard sport steering with variable power assist and ratio enhances the driver-to-road relationship, and technologies like Dynamic Stability Control and Performance Control.
For the utmost in performance, the 2020 BMW Z4 M40i follows the arrival of the Z4 sDrive30i with a 3.0-liter six-cylinder inline engine that features quicker TwinScroll turbocharger response and direct injection. The result of BMW’s expertise in engineering: 382 horsepower and 369 lb-ft of peak torque, delivering a 0-60 mph time of just 3.9 seconds. The Z4 M40i boasts an Adaptive M Sport suspension, M Sport brakes, an M Sport differential and a 100-milimeter-lower ride height, increasing its performance dynamics to a greater degree.
The new BMW Z4 Roadster will also be one of the most technologically advanced offerings in the BMW lineup. It features the all-new, fully digital BMW iDrive Operating System 7.0, which allows for full customization of the in-vehicle experience as well as the transference of your preferences into other properly equipped BMW vehicles via the BMW Cloud. You can set your preferences via the Z4’s BMW Live Cockpit Professional, which features a high-resolution 12.3-inch instrument cluster and 10.25-inch diagonal center display, as well as with the updated iDrive controller with haptic feedback and cloud-based voice control.
The bold, new BMW Z4 Roadster advances the top-down driving concept for a new generation with more power, more intelligence and more style. It’s everything that personifies the Ultimate Driving Machine®, deftly balancing luxury and performance for a driver- and passenger-oriented experience unlike any other.
