2013 BMW Z4 Fuel Economy

7.0
On Fuel Economy

Thanks to the new turbocharged four-cylinder engine in the 2013 BMW Z4 sDrive28i, the base version of the Z4 is a surprisingly green sports car, rating at 22 mpg city and 33 mpg highway with the eight-speed automatic, or 22/34 with the manual.

Six-cylinder models don't fare quite as well, with the sDrive35i rating at 19/26 mpg with the manual transmission and 17/24 mpg with the dual-clutch automatic. The sDrive35is scores identical figures to the dual-clutch sDrive35i.

The 2013 BMW Z4 sDrive28i is one of the greenest picks among sports cars—and you won't have to sacrifice any thrills for it.

As we've now noted in drives of several of BMW's latest products with the turbo four, our real-world mileage has easily met, and in some cases exceeded, the EPA ratings.
