2014 BMW Z4 Styling

8.0
Styling
A long, low hood and short rear end give the BMW Z4 the proportions of a classic roadster. The details, however, are all modern German aerodynamics and sportiness.

Converging arcs, smooth swells, and raised character lines give the Z4 a still-fresh feel even though it's going on five years since its last major redesign. Both sporty and conservative, the Z4 rides a find balance, offering a persona not found elsewhere in the luxury roadster segment.

Inside the Z4's cabin, the layout is more cockpit-like and driver-oriented than larger BMW vehicles. The general look is one of modern sophistication, giving an upscale feel that rivals may equal, but rarely surpass. The center stack can look a touch cluttered, but high-end trim materials and the iDrive system's sleek control layout balance the busy feel.

The 2014 BMW Z4 wears fluid, modern style over classic roadster proportions.

Materials and upholstery are quality to the touch as well as the eye, and while there's not an abundance of room to spare, the not-so-minimalist-take is a nod to the classic roadsters of the past.
