BMW introduced the Z series in 1989 with the Z1. The Z stands for zukunft (German for future) and over the years the model line-up has been produced in four different series with five generations consisting of roadster, coupé, sports car, and a couple of concept variants.
The classic proportions with modern sportiness has made the model quite popular with enthusiasts and the outgoing model was introduced in 2011.
After a few years of silence about the fate of the successor, BMW Z4 showcased a co-developed with technical partner Toyota a concept at Pebble Beach in 2017.
The incoming Z4 has abandoned the power retractable hardtop of the previous model and gone back to a soft top. Unlike the previous model’s longer dash-to-axle arrangement, which gave it more cab-rearward proportions, the new proportions had to accommodate pedestrian crash safety standards, so the 2019 Z4 gets a blunted front end instead of the shark nose that made the concept so good-looking.
Despite the changes, the new Z4’s is more dramatic to look at with its sculpted body.
The 2019 BMW Z4’s interior is pretty standard fare as modern BMWs come, but there’s a new digital gauge cluster and wide touchscreen display to up the roadster’s tech game.
Assuming the role of range topper in the new BMW Z4 the M40i will offer a further improved 340hp 3.0-litre straight-six unit featuring M Performance TwinPower Turbo technology. 2.0-litre four-cylinder petrol engines with BMW TwinPower Turbo technology and increased output to 258hp take their place in the BMW Z4 sDrive30i and BMW Z4 sDrive20i models for the first time. All engines are mated to 8-speed transmission. The transmission also features a Launch Control function for accelerating hard from a standing start with optimised traction.
Dynamic Stability Control (DSC) system includes the Anti-lock Braking System (ABS), Dynamic Traction Control (DTC), Cornering Brake Control (CBC), Dynamic Brake Control (DBC) and Start-Off Assistant.
The new car also gets a host of connectivity features and smart tech now enables pairing with a smartphone to facilitate locking and unlocking.
