2019 BMW Z4 Preview

If you want all eyes on you during your drives through Manhattan, the Bronx, and Queens, you’re probably excited about the brand-new 2019 BMW Z4. To give eager drivers a small taste of what’s to come from this roadster, the team at BMW of Manhattan created a BMW Z4 preview.1

BMW Z4 Design

The first part of the 2019 BMW Z4 we want to preview is the design. This sporty coupe will continue on as a convertible except with one major change from preview iterations: Instead of a hardtop, it’ll sport a lightweight soft top.

We expect the soft top to help lower the Z4 roadster’s curb weight, which should in turn improve its driving dynamics. Even better, the roof is motor-operated and can be raised and lowered in a span of 10 seconds, even when traveling speeds of up to 31 MPH. This is good news for those times you get caught in an unexpected rainstorm.

It’ll also feature a wide, low stance that gives it a hint of aggressiveness. The body will gain a bit of length, as well, and sit atop 18-inch wheels, with 19-inch wheels also available.

2019 BMW Z4 Powertrain Preview

While the exterior of the 2019 BMW Z4 will look calm and composed, it’ll be hard at work under the hood delivering a sporty, energetic experience. There will be two different engines to choose from:

  • 2.0L I-4 engine: 255 horsepower, 295 lb-ft of torque
  • 3.0L I-6 engine: 382 horsepower, 369 lb-ft of torque

It’s expected to offer a smooth acceleration, especially when operating in available Sport+ Mode. In fact, the 2.0L engine is expected to take you from 0-60 MPH in 5.2 seconds, while the 3.0L engine may get you there in as little as 4.4 seconds.

A manual transmission will no longer be available with the BMW Z4. Instead, it’ll pair both engines with an 8-speed automatic transmission that optimizes your shift schedules to maximize performance and efficiency.

Technology Features

As you get comfortable in the cockpit of the BMW Z4, you’ll have a whole suite of technology features to play around with. This car may come equipped with the iDrive 7.0 infotainment system that uses Bluetooth® wireless technology to link your smartphone with your car. This allows you to make on-the-go phone calls or stream music from your mobile device.

We also expect an available 10.2-inch full-color touchscreen, which can display climate controls, music information, vehicle diagnostics, and available navigation for your convenience.

For an even more convenient driving experience, you can equip your Z4 with the Head-Up Display system. With this system, vital information can be projected directly onto the lower portion of your windshield. This allows you to stay in-the-know without taking your eyes off the road ahead.
