About the BMW Z4

Vehicle Summary

The BMW Z4 is a subset of the iconic BMW Z-line of roadsters; specifically, the Z4 was first released in 2002 and is still in production with the Z-line's sixth generation (2018-present). Since its inception, the Z4 has been known for its powerful engines, sporty design, and impeccable handling. Between its two most recent generations, trim and engine configurations have changed a bit—and the Z4 is no longer offered as a hard-top convertible, but a soft-top instead.

With seating for two, this classic roadster is a great choice for those wanting all the fun of a convertible sports car without sacrificing comfort and luxury in the process.

Reviews for BMW Z4

Overall Rating

4.5 out of 5 (2 reviews)

Love this car!

It's such an easy car to drive in both traffic and on the open roads. It's just fun on the open roads with the top down.

Pros

  • Fuel Economy: I have the 2.8 liter engine and am getting 29.7 miles to the gallon in traffic while I average 80 mph on the freeway.
  • Reliability: This is my second Z4 and I've rarely had any issues with either.
  • Styling: It'a an absolutely beautiful car and so fun to drive.

Cons

  • Technology and Entertainment: The voice commands could be easier to use.

- Cindy Roesler, 2012 BMW Z4

fun car! but high maintenance

It is a lot of fun to drive. The engine moves the car very well. Has a great throaty sound. The hardtop convertible operates well and the open air feel with the top down is great!

Pros

  • Ride and Handling: handles very well on turns. Sticks to the road. Accelerates very quickly.
  • Power: the car is a rocket. Period.
  • Styling: I get lots of comments on how nice it looks. Many people comment that it looks like the Batmobile.

Cons

  • Cost to Maintain: Not for the faint of heart or faint of wallet. Everything is double or triple a normal car. A new batter was $400.
  • Cargo Space: trunk has very little room with the top down, but it is manageable. You don't get this car for cargo space.
  • Value: very expensive to maintain but ultimately you have to decide if it is worth it
