BMW has launched a facelift of the Z4 two-seater convertible. It has received numerous cosmetic updates along with additional equipment. It is available in only a single M40i trim and will be brought in as a CBU(Completely Built-up Unit).
BMW Z4 facelift Exteriors
On the outside, changes though present, are subtle. At the front, the Z4 gets a new bumper with triangular air intakes along with slightly tweaked headlamps. Also new is the kidney grille which now gets a gloss-black finish and a honeycomb pattern against the silver lined grille with slats in the pre-facelift car. At the side, the only change seems to be a new design for the 19 inch alloys.
Moving towards the rear, however, there are no changes and it continues to feature L-shaped taillamps, vertical reflectors and twin square-shaped exhaust tips. BMW is offering three new colour shades this time around- Thundernight, Skyscraper Grey and Portimao Blue which join the Black Sapphire, San Francisco Red and the optional Frozen Grey II from the previous version.
BMW Z4 facelift Interior & Features
Climb inside the Z4 and you will notice that not much has changed. The dashboard design remains the same, however it now receives the latest iDrive 7.0 software for the 10.25 inch touchscreen. BMW has also offered a new combination of the upholstery which is now finished in Leather and Alcantara with contrast Blue stitching and piping on the seats. The interiors further get an option of three colours- Black, Magma Red and Cognac Vernasca Leather.
Other equipment remains the same including the digital driver display, 2-zone climate control, ambient lighting, Wireless Apple Carplay, Driving modes, 4 airbags, Brake assist, DSC and more.
BMW will also provide optional extras such as a 408W 12 speaker Harman Kardon music system, a full-colour Heads-up Display, Active Cruise Control, Parking Assistant, Wireless Charger, Adaptive Headlamps and more
BMW Z4 Powertrain & Price
The new Z4 remains unchanged under the hood, getting powered by a 3.0L six-cylinder twin turbo petrol. This produces 340HP and 500NM. Transmission duties are handled by an 8 speed Steptronic transmission which sends power to the rear wheels. 0-100Kmph is achieved in 4.5 seconds.
BMW has priced the Z4 M40i at Rs. 89.30 Lakhs(Ex-showroom) with optional features costing extra. It will rival the Porsche 718 Boxster.
