For overview, 2017 BMW Z4 review will start from outer appearance. The car looked sporty and it has the range of powerful engines. Compared to the previous generation, the BMW Z4 is more comfortable. The rear-wheel drive layout is well-balanced and it easy to handle. Meanwhile, the soft suspension set-up will give an extremely firm ride. Unlike its rivals, the Mercedes SLC and the Audi TT, there is no frugal diesel version instead the BMW Z4 petrol units are smooth, powerful, and respectable efficient. The design keeps the car looks fresh. To keep the BMW tradition, the Z4 edition has a rear-wheel drive layout, a traditional front-engine, and power come from a choice of turbocharged four and six-cylinder petrol engines.
2017 BMW Z4 Engine and Performance
Surprisingly, the rear-wheel drive is a good cruiser because of its high level of refinement and its supple ride. It is fun to drive the BMW Z4 because it has fine balance, naturally weighted steering and decent grip. The BMW Z4’s engine is entirely petrol. The car can drive for 62mph in just 8,1 seconds. The car can respond quickly to the throttle and accelerated strongly even from low revs. You can choose the Performance Drive Control such as sport mode (the standard one), Comfort setting (for a relaxing ride), and efficient ECO PRO mode. The BMW Z4 comes with a seven-speed twin clutch transmission which can deliver smoothly and shift quickly by using the paddles on the steering wheel. The car also comes with a six-speed manual gearbox.
BMW Z4 Interior, Design, And Technology
Compared to the original BMW Z4, the new generation has a much sleeker shape. The stubby boot and long bonnet give the car a classy sport car proportion. Meanwhile, the metal folding roof guaranteed the car looked just as amazing with the top up or down. The BMW Z4 has a new circular LED running lights, a slim white ‘eyebrow’ line which is added to the top of the main headlight cluster. It also has subtle chrome trim for the side indicators and grilles. The changes make the Z4 keep looking fresh.
The 2017 BMW Z4 review for all engine got alloy wheels, climate control, Bluetooth, a DAB radio, and xenon headlamps. The leather seat is sleek. For a Comfort pack, it comes with parking sensors, cruise control, a wind deflector, and extra storage. And for the Media package, it’s already added with a Design pure Traction and Internet connectivity.
Practicality, Comfort And Boot Space
Because it is a two-seater sport car, the BMW Z4 is not for the practicality. But for the class standard, it doesn’t fare well. The complex hood system takes 20 seconds to erect and it takes 21 seconds to fold down. This is longer than its rivals. But still, the car has some advantages because of its elaborate roof. The security is improved and driving refinement with the roof up is increased. Driving the car for a long distance is comfortable and bearable too.
