Popular Mechanics



The Z4 is a sleek roadster of classic proportion, aside from the slightly lengthened rear to accommodate the retractable hardtop. And while the Z4 packs a lot of technology inside, BMW has looked to roadster tradition to give this model a more cockpit-like layout than other models in the lineup.

Even though it's been several years since this model's 2009 redesign—and the look itself can be taken as a little conservative as a whole—the Z4 still has a lot of presence, with its combination of long, smooth arcs, raised character lines, and gentle creases. The rear fenders are slightly flared, and the tail lights are wrapped smoothly into the rear. At the nose, open intakes and the kidney grille are the primary cues.

Inside, the latest Z4 is more refined, comfortable, and well put together than its predecessor. In fact, it's among the most upscale sports roadsters available in this price range. A sleek, sophisticated interior design theme pairs with the iDrive system and its advanced technologies well, though some may find the center stack cluttered. High-end trim materials and smooth, soft leather upholstery make the Z4's cabin both modern and comfortable, while giving a touch of a nod to the classic roadsters.

 

Conclusion

The BMW Z4 has modern details combined with classic roadster proportions—and it's all done very tastefully.

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.
