BMW has unveiled complete details on its 2019-Z4, the widely awaited redesign of the German Carmaker’s 2-seat sports car. The 2019-Z4 was launched at the Pebble Beach CONCOURS D’ELEGANCE, but developers just showed the first edition model commemorating the latest Z4 launch.
In the US, the Z4 will be offered in high-end M40i Roadster trim and base sDrive30i Roadster. This sDrive30i will be controlled by a 2-Liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine, sending 255-HP and 295-PF of torque to the close wheel. That’ll get the Z4 from 0-60 MPH in 5 seconds, according to the developer.
The Z4- M40i packs a 3-liter turbocharged inline 6, producing 382-HP and 369-PF of torque. The company claims this version will do 0-60 MPH in 4.3 seconds, and both cars have a peal pace of 155-mph. The M40i also acquires standard M-Sports suspension and brakes, as-well-as an electronically managed M-Sports Differential. The single available transmission on both cars is 8 speeds automatic.
The Z4 also gets its smooth share of technology functions; the BMW live Cockpit expert information system includes a 12.4-inch cluster screen and 10.2-inch central screen, manipulated using the recent version of iDrive’s Controller and a range of HAPTIC controls. The ecosystem is compatible with Apple Car-Platy but not Android-Auto and includes the ability for over the air tool updates.
Driver help features including forwarding accident warning, low-speed independent emergency barking, and lane exit warning are standard. An optional driving help package includes adaptive cruise handling, speed limit info, blind spot managing, and rear cross traffic notification. A backup help function can mechanically steer while reversing for up to 150F. The entire driver has to brake or accelerate, according to Car developers.
The BMW Z4 sDrive30i Roadster will publically launch in Mar 2019 as a 2019 car model, while Z4 M40i Roadster will follow a bit later in the year as a 2020 car model.
