2011 BMW Z4 Fuel Economy

7.0
On Fuel Economy
With EPA fuel economy ratings as good as 19 mpg in the city and 28 on the highway, the 2011 BMW Z4 lineup is actually quite green—for a sports car, that is.

You'll see pretty good mileage—low 20s, likely, in combined driving—with either engine. Curiously, the turbocharged engine actually gets slightly better mileage, with the manual gearbox, than the naturally aspirated engine.

Those who value fuel economy in a sports car might want to wait until the 2012 model year, when a new base turbocharged four-cylinder engine is expected to offer improved fuel economy.

Relative to most other sports cars, the 2011 BMW Z4 is a pretty green choice.
