BMW’s collaboration with Toyota to co-develop an all-new Supra and BMW Z4 Roadster has car enthusiasts ringing with excitement. While there’s been excessive buzz surrounding the new Supra and its impending reveal, the limelight is now turning towards BMW’s Z4 Roadster after camo-clad prototypes were recently caught using significantly less disguise.
Since 2009, the BMW Z4 has remained, for the many part, unchanged– conserve for a couple of moderate tweaks occasionally. However that will all change when the brand new Z4 debuts in 2019. BMW provided us a look into the future with the unveiling of its Concept Z4.
2019 BMW Z4 Design
Aesthetically, the principle reveals us that the new Z4 will get here with a more athletic look than the present model, which focuses more on luxury than athleticism. This appears in its tough creases in its bodywork, the rising character lines, the flared rear quarter panels, its bulges behind the seats, and its reduced overhangs. Also showing 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 reveals BMW’s strategies to press forward with its usage of screens in place of analog evaluates, as it has screens where the assesses usually are.
2019 BMW Z4 Engine
The under-hood bits weren’t resolved by the Concept Z4, but we anticipate a choice of 4- 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 designations. Given its platform-sharing deal with Toyota, there might likewise be a hybrid variation with technology obtained from the Japanese automaker.
2019 BMW Z4 Safety
The current Z4 has not gone through IIHS screening, nor does it have any innovative safety features, like automatic braking or lane-keep assist. 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 main release date for the 2019 BMW Z4, we expect it arriving in mid-2019. It’s too far out to seriously think about pricing at this moment, but it will likely be a bit greater than the current model’s variety of $50,695 to $67,345 (location fees consisted of). The key competitors for the 2019 BMW Z4 will include the Mercedes-Benz SLC-Class and the Porsche 718 Boxster.
