BMW has announced the uk range and pricing details of the all-new 2019 Z4, which is now available to dealerships across the country.
The new roadster is available in four-cylinder sDrive 20i and sDrive 30i guise as well as the inline-six-powered M40i.
Base sDrive 20i models are powered by a turbocharged 2.0-liter engine producing 194hp (197PS) and 236lb-ft (320Nm) of peak torque. BMW claims a 0-62mph (100km/h) in 6.6 seconds and a 149mph (240 km/h) top speed. In the sDrive 30i, the 2.0-liter unit makes 255hp (258PS) and 295lb-ft (400Nm) of torque. The added grunt drops the 0-62mph time down to 5.4 seconds while top speed is set at 155mph (250km/h).
Finally, the range-topping M40i is using the turbocharged 3.0-liter straight-six tuned to produce 335hp (340PS) and 369lb-ft (500Nm) of torque. The fastest Z4 can do the 0-62mph sprint in 4.5 seconds, while top speed is still limited to 155mph (250km/h).
All engine options are paired to an eight-speed automatic transmission that also features a Launch Control function. The Z4 M40i’s unit also comes with an M specific software for an even sportier feeling.
