BMW’s partnership with Toyota to co-develop an all-new Supra and BMW Z4 Roadster has car enthusiasts ringing with enjoyment. While there’s been too much buzz surrounding the brand-new Supra and its impending reveal, the limelight is now turning towards BMW’s Z4 Roadster after camo-clad prototypes were just recently captured using significantly less camouflage.
Since 2009, the BMW Z4 has remained, for the many part, unchanged– conserve for a couple of moderate tweaks here and there. However that will all change when the brand new Z4 debuts in 2019. BMW gave us a glance into the future with the unveiling of its Concept Z4.
2019 BMW Z4 Design
Aesthetically, the concept shows us that the brand-new Z4 will arrive with a more athletic appearance 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 shortened overhangs. Also showing its more athletic kind 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 towards the pilot and a minimalist method to its buttons and switches. The Concept Z4 also reveals BMW’s plans to push forward with its usage of screens in place of analog gauges, as it has screens where the evaluates typically 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 variant 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. Given its platform-sharing handle Toyota, there might also be a hybrid variation with technology obtained from the Japanese automaker.
2019 BMW Z4 Safety
The current Z4 has not undergone IIHS screening, nor does it have any sophisticated security features, like automatic braking or lane-keep help. We would anticipate BMW to include these to the new-generation Z4, however 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 getting here in mid-2019. It’s too far out to seriously think about pricing at this moment, however it will likely be a bit greater than the existing model’s series of $50,695 to $67,345 (destination costs consisted of). The key competition for the 2019 BMW Z4 will include the Mercedes-Benz SLC-Class and the Porsche 718 Boxster.
