The 2016 BMW Z4 is one of the most desired convertibles on the market because if offers a pure driving experience as well as one of the more attractive designs out there. However, the current model has been on the market since the late 2009, so it is quite old.
2016 BMW Z4 Review
BMW released an announcement a few years ago that they are going to give the car a complete makeover and since then things evolved quite nicely. In fact, BMW teamed up with Toyota in order to create the next generation Supra and Z4 cars. In fact, these two are going to share an identical platform as well as the same engines, making the two one of the most awaited cars of this year.
BMW Z4 Release date and price
A full release date hasn’t been announced just yet but the 2016 BMW Z4 might be shown to the public later this year while the showroom availability could start as early as 2016. While the pricing hasn’t been set just yet, we should expect it to cost at least $50,000 which could still be a great price for a great car.
Interior of BMW Z4 2016
Inside the model most things are going to be different than those on the Supra, so the Z4 is going to be more comfortable and luxurious as well as better equipped. It will still only get 2 seats but it should be enough considering it will be a car designed for fun. Just like before, it will be a convertible that will very likely employ a soft fabric roof, making it a bit closer to the original.
BMW Z4 Exterior
The exterior hasn’t been finished just yet but BMW gave us subtle hints about how the car might look like and we must say that we’re impressed. The front end is going to be quite similar to that of the 6 Series, one of the best looking BMWs ever made while at the back it will borrow a few design elements from the i8, making the Z4 look like nothing else on the road.
BMW Z4 Engine
Under its hood the usual inline 6 engine is likely to be replaced with something a bit more unusual. In fact, the 2016 BMW Z4 is very likely to get a hybrid drivetrain in the most powerful version of the car which would be a first for BMW.
The base engine could be a 2 liter turbocharged inline 4 with up to 300 horsepower and 320 lb-ft of torque while the more powerful version is likely going to get the same 2 liter engine coupled to 2 or 3 electric motors for a total output of as much as 450 horsepower. All of this power is going to be sent only to the rear wheels via an 8 speed automatic meaning that the car will be a real driver’s dream.
