With this new 2011 model of the BMW Z4 you are to have a very new appearance and dynamics than its first generation of the BMW Z4. With the coupe model you are going to have a curvier body but that helps to bring its beauty, this is going to be very impressive and very sleek also. You are still going to be getting the turbo 3.0 liter inline six cylinder engine which is not up to date when it comes to adding to its fuel economy, if they went for the twin turbo then that would have been more fuel efficient than before. When they do install their new engine then it will be more powerful than before, there will be more airflow intake to the car now.
This is going to cost a lot in fact so that is something to remember when you set your heart for one of these. Depending on the features you will get, you might find that this price reaches almost $60,000.00! This will make it a more desirable car but that might be hampered by the fact that this will have very limited amounts of cargo space available to you as well as this holding only two passengers also. From the previous year’s appearance of the body will look very alike however but now there are going to be many different included features to this Z4. There is now even the great contrast with the leather and wood combo and the trim and plastic look also.
Remember this is only going to come in an convertible body style but you are going to have a choice of two different engines. You could have either the turbocharged inline six cylinder 3.0 liter engine or the inline six cylinder 3.0 liter engine. There is also a choice over the transmissions including the seven speed dual clutch automated manual transmission, the two six speed manual and automatic transmissions also. You will have three different models to choose from however, you could go for the sDrive35is, the sDrive30i or the sDrive35i.
For this new 2011 model, there is now the sDrive35is versions available with the Z4’s, this is still going to have however the turbocharged I-6 3.0 liter engine however which is really going to be found in most BMW’s today.
With this Z4 however, everything under the hood will be very impressive however. There is now a horsepower which can reach three hundred and thirty five. Even the torque has been increased also, now it can reach almost three hundred and thirty two which is impressive since before you could only get to three hundred. The torque could be increased again by thirty seven more pounds if you go for the electronically controlled over-boost function built into this Z4.
If you were to go for the sDrive35is model then you are going to have an option of over six different colors of paint. You are still getting the titanium silver, the space grey, the alpine white, the black sapphire and the deep sea blue but you are also getting Melbourne red metallic option.
For the interior you are going to be getting a nice M sport upgrade throughout the car including the thick rim M leather steering wheel. That carries on with the driver footrest which is now an M shape though the seats are now a little sporty also so that is nice. With the M suspension being adapted then that makes for a comfy journey throughout from start to finish, with the shock absorbers and the height reduction by almost ten millimeters it helps to improve the ride of this Z4.
The Z4 holds the ABS system with the traction and DSC stability controls which are going to be a standard feature with the Z4. There are many airbags for this Z4 including the side, knee and side seat mounted airbags for both the passengers and driver. For the fuel economy rating, you are going to find that it reaches eighteen to twenty eight mpg for the city and highway with the 30i model. The 35i reaches nineteen and twenty six mpg for the city and highways and the 35is is going to reach seventeen for the city and twenty four mpg for the highways.
