Fast or efficient: With the arrival of the sDrive M40i for the 2020 model year, you can get a Z4 that’s legitimately fast thanks to its 382-hp turbocharged inline six-cylinder engine. Or you can stick with the standard Z4 sDrive30i and enjoy quick acceleration from a 255-hp turbocharged four-cylinder combined with an impressive EPA-estimated fuel economy of 27 mpg.
Roomy interior: The BMW Z4 is small, but it has a remarkably roomy interior for a two-seat sports car. You sit low in the sport-bolstered seats, but even with the power-operated fabric top raised, there is plenty of headroom for taller people. The Z4 is wide, too, offering generous shoulder room, while liberal amounts of legroom make this BMW agreeable on longer trips. Trunk space impresses, too.
Technology: BMWs of the present are comparatively intuitive to understand and use. Plus, you can operate the Z4’s modern iDrive tech using physical controls on the center console, the touchscreen display on the dashboard, or voice controls via the steering wheel. Unfortunately, the 2020 Z4 only supports Apple CarPlay®, not Android Auto™; look for 2021 or newer vehicles if you need Android Auto.
Driving dynamics: Based on our evaluation of the sDrive30i, the Z4 isn’t as outright fun to drive as a two-seat roadster should be. Initial acceleration from a stop is leisurely, it is hard to drive smoothly in traffic, and the steering is light and numb for this type of vehicle. We don’t find the car confidence-inspiring when driven with enthusiasm either, making the Z4 sDrive30i more suitable for long highway drives on smooth pavement.
