Expert Quotes:

24 mpg city, 33 highway (sDrive28i, automatic); 23/24 mpg (sDrive28i, manual) 19/26 mpg (sDrive35i, manual); 17/24 mpg (sDrive35i and sDrive35is, DCT)
U.S. EPA

Despite the power increase, the 35is is no thirstier for premium fuel than the regular 35i with DCT
Motor Trend




The Z4 is a surprisingly green sports car, particularly with the new turbocharged four-cylinder. The sDrive28i rates 24 mpg city and 33 mpg highway for 27 mpg combined with the eight-speed automatic, while the manual trades 23 mpg city and 34 mpg highway for the same combined rating.

Stepping up to the turbo models, the sDrive35i rates 19/26 mpg for 21 mpg combined with the manual transmission and 17/24 mpg for 19 mpg combined with the dual-clutch automatic. The sDrive35is scores identical figures to the dual-clutch sDrive35i.

Conclusion

Relative to other sports cars in its class, the 2012 BMW Z4 is surprisingly green--with the right engine choice.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
