BMW’s collaboration with Toyota to co-develop an all-new Supra and BMW Z4 Roadster has car lovers buzzing with enjoyment. While there’s been excessive hype surrounding the new Supra and its upcoming reveal, the spotlight is now turning towards BMW’s Z4 Roadster after camo-clad models were recently caught using substantially less camouflage.
Since 2009, the BMW Z4 has stayed, for the most part, the same– conserve for a couple of mild tweaks here and there. However that will all change when the all-new Z4 debuts in 2019. BMW provided us a peek into the future with the unveiling of its Concept Z4.
2019 BMW Z4 Design
Aesthetically, the principle reveals us that the new Z4 will show up with a more athletic look than the present model, which focuses more on high-end than athleticism. This appears in its difficult creases in its bodywork, the rising character lines, the flared rear quarter panels, its humps behind the seats, and its shortened overhangs. Also revealing its more athletic form are the larger air intakes on the front bumper, heat extractors behind the front wheels, and air vents on the rear bumper.
2019 BMW Z4 Interior
Inside, the athleticism continues with a more driver-centric cabin with all the main controls angled toward the pilot and a minimalist method to its buttons and switches. The Concept Z4 likewise shows BMW’s plans to push forward with its use of screens in place of analog determines, as it has screens where the evaluates usually are.
2019 BMW Z4 Engine
The under-hood bits weren’t addressed by the Concept Z4, but we anticipate a choice of four- and six-cylinder engines. We anticipate the base engine to be a variation of BMW’s existing 2.0-liter four-cylinder, while the optional engine will be a take on Bimmer’s existing 3.0-liter six-cylinder. Respectively, these will likely carry the 30i and 40i model designations. Provided its platform-sharing deal with Toyota, there may likewise be a hybrid variation with technology borrowed from the Japanese car manufacturer.
2019 BMW Z4 Safety
The existing Z4 has actually not undergone IIHS screening, nor does it have any innovative security features, like automated braking or lane-keep assist. We would anticipate BMW to add these to the new-generation Z4, but there is no main word on this.
2019 BMW Z4 Pricing & Release Date
Though there is no official release date for the 2019 BMW Z4, we anticipate it showing up in mid-2019. It’s too far out to seriously think about pricing at this point, however it will likely be a bit greater than the existing model’s range of $50,695 to $67,345 (location costs consisted of). The key competition for the 2019 BMW Z4 will consist of the Mercedes-Benz SLC-Class and the Porsche 718 Boxster.
