Expert Quotes:

22 mpg city, 33 highway (sDrive28i, automatic); 22/24 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




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.

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.

Conclusion

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.

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.
