2014 BMW Z4 Fuel Economy

Fuel Economy
From fast to efficient, the BMW Z4's engine range offers more choice than most roadsters for those concerned about gas mileage.

The base Z4 sDrive28is uses a turbocharged four-cylinder engine to score 22 mpg city, 34 mpg highway, and 26 mpg combined with the manual transmission. Opting for the eight-speed auto shaves 1 mpg from the highway rating, but leaves the others untouched.

With more power comes somewhat poorer gas mileage: the sDrive35i rates 19/26/21 mpg city/highway/combined with the manual transmission. Pick the dual-clutch seven-speed gearbox and those numbers fall to 17/24/20 mpg.

In four-cylinder turbo form, the BMW Z4 is among the most efficient sports cars.

The sportiest model, the Z4 sDrive35is, also scores 17/24/20 mpg city/highway/combined.

Those looking to save some cash at the pump with their sport roadster will choose the turbo four-cylinder Z4 sDrive28i, and in our experience, real-world gas mileage easily matches, and occasionally exceeds, the EPA ratings.
