2014 BMW Z4 Overview

2014 BMW Z4 Exterior

You would be hard-pressed to find a more aggressively-styled and imposing vehicle on the road than the 2014 BMW Z4. Outside of some exotic sports cars with well over six-figure asking prices, the Z4 will turn more heads than just about any roadster out there. Its athletic stance is bolstered by standard 17-inch wheels and penetrating LED running lights.

2014 BMW Z4 Performance

The 2014 BMW Z4 is powered by one of two turbocharged engines. The base engine is a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder that generates 240 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. The available 3.0-liter turbocharged V6 produces 300 horsepower and 300 lb-ft of torque, and drivers who opt for the Z4 sDrive35is trim will see those figures rise to 335 horsepower and 332 lb-ft of torque thanks to an upgraded variant of the same V6.

2014 BMW Z4 Efficiency

Don’t let well over 200 horsepower performance scare you off when it comes to fuel economy; the 2014 BMW Z4’s base turbocharged four-cylinder still manages to return an impressive 22 mpg city and 34 mpg highway. The higher-performing V6 returns 19 mpg city and 26 mpg highway, while its sDrive35is enhancements lower those numbers to 17 mpg city and 24 mpg highway.

2014 BMW Z4 Interior

Despite a reputation of performance models, BMW is still a luxury automaker and the 2014 Z4’s upscale cabin filled with premium materials. There are no shortage of standard technological features, which include dual-zone automatic climate control, eight-way power seats with four-way lumbar adjustments, Bluetooth audio and phone connectivity, HD radio, and an iPod/USB interface.

2014 BMW Z4 Safety

Standard safety features on the 2014 BMW Z4 include traction and stability control, antilock brakes, side airbags, and the BMW Assist eCall system, which features automatic crash notification.
