BMW’s partnership with Toyota to co-develop a brand new Supra and BMW Z4 Roadster has car enthusiasts buzzing with excitement. While there’s been too much hype surrounding the new Supra and its impending expose, the spotlight is now turning towards BMW’s Z4 Roadster after camo-clad models were just recently captured using significantly less camouflage.
Given that 2009, the BMW Z4 has actually remained, for the a lot of part, unchanged– conserve for a few moderate tweaks here and there. But that will all change when the all-new Z4 debuts in 2019. BMW gave us a peek into the future with the unveiling of its Concept Z4.
2019 BMW Z4 Design
Aesthetically, the idea shows us that the new Z4 will get here with a more athletic look than the current model, which focuses more on luxury than athleticism. This is evident in its difficult creases in its bodywork, the rising character lines, the flared rear quarter panels, its bulges behind the seats, and its reduced overhangs. Likewise revealing its more athletic form are the bigger 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 primary controls angled towards the pilot and a minimalist technique to its buttons and switches. The Concept Z4 likewise shows BMW’s plans to press forward with its usage of screens in place of analog evaluates, as it has screens where the determines typically are.
2019 BMW Z4 Engine
The under-hood bits weren’t attended to by the Concept Z4, but we expect 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 present 3.0-liter six-cylinder. Respectively, these will likely carry the 30i and 40i model classifications. Offered its platform-sharing deal with Toyota, there might also be a hybrid version with technology borrowed from the Japanese automaker.
2019 BMW Z4 Safety
The present Z4 has not undergone IIHS testing, nor does it have any advanced safety features, like automated braking or lane-keep help. We would anticipate BMW to add these to the new-generation Z4, however there is no official word on this.
2019 BMW Z4 Pricing & Release Date
Though there is no official release date for the 2019 BMW Z4, we anticipate it getting here in mid-2019. It’s too far out to seriously consider pricing at this point, however it will likely be a bit greater than the current model’s variety of $50,695 to $67,345 (destination fees included). The crucial competitors for the 2019 BMW Z4 will consist of the Mercedes-Benz SLC-Class and the Porsche 718 Boxster.
