No, this isn't the coupe version of the Z4. The first big change is a new retractable hardtop, replacing the cloth of the previous car. This top consists of two aluminum panels, and powers into position in less than 20 seconds.
There are two lesser trims for the Z4. Shown here is the sDrive30i, using a naturally aspirated 3-liter engine similar to the current 3.0 Z4. In the new Z4, this engine gets you 258 horsepower. Also available, at the bottom of the line-up, is a 2.3-liter engine putting out 204 horsepower.
Standard Dynamic Drive Control in the Z4 lets you adjust performance between three settings with the touch of a button. As an option, the suspension technology from BMW's M cars is available, giving the Z4 electronic damper adjustment.
The cockpit shows off BMW refinement, with wood insets not seen in the previous Z4. This car is fitted with an automatic transmission, featuring manual and sport modes, and paddle shifters. A six-speed manual transmission is also available.
