an all-new exterior that sees the previously gawky styling transformed into a striking and handsome new design
elegant and cohesive
The BMW Z4 has classic roadster proportions, thanks to its short rear and long, low hood. Look closely, though, and you'll find that aerodynamics and sporty bits are 100 percent modern German.
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.
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.
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.
New this year, the Z4 is offered in Sparkling Brown Metallic, which comes exclusively with the Ivory White and Burnt Sienna leather interior.
Classic roadster proportions give the BMW Z4 a graceful, fluid shape.
