Overview

After a brief hiatus, the BMW Z4 Roadster returned last model year. The sixth-generation model remained true to its roots with its front-engine and rear-wheel-drive layout. The 2020 BMW Z4 returns with a new M40i variant.

Choosing Your BMW Z4

The 2020 BMW Z4 is available in two trims: sDrive30i and M40i. Pricing starts at $50,695 including destination for the sDrive30i and rises to $64,695 for the M40i.

Engine Choices

BMW offers a pair of engine choices, one for each trim. Both engines work with an eight-speed automatic transmission and are available exclusively with rear-wheel drive. The M40i adds steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters.

Engine TypeTrim LevelHorsepowerTorqueFuel Economy (Combined)
2.0L Turbo 4-CylindersDrive30i254 hp294 lb-ft27 mpg
3.0L Turbo 6-CylinderM40i382 hp368 lb-ft26 mpg

Both models feature three drive modes: Comfort, Sport, and Sport Plus. The chassis system on the M40i model with its suspension, brakes, and differential upgrades affect these modes by delivering sharper input.

Passenger and Cargo Capacity

The BMW Z4 is sports-car snug, holding room for two individuals. Tall adults should still expect ample head, shoulder, and leg room.

The Z4 is one of BMW’s smallest models, containing just 9.9 cubic feet of cargo space regardless of whether the top is up or down. This is an improvement over the previous model, which lost about 40% of its cargo space with the roof folded.

Safety Features

The 2020 Z4 offers some advanced driver-assist safety features, but not many as standard equipment. Included are automatic emergency braking, forward collision warning, daytime pedestrian detection, and speed limit information.

Blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, and lane departure warning are available through the $500 Driving Assistance Package, while adaptive cruise control is a $1,200 standalone option.

Connectivity

BMW pulls out most of the stops with the Z4. It features a 10.25-inch infotainment touchscreen with navigation, Bluetooth, two USB ports, and one-year of complimentary Apple CarPlay integration. The driver instrument display is also 10.25 inches.

Wireless charging and a wi-fi hotspot are bundled together for $500 on the M40i trim.

sDrive30i - From $50,695

Nearly all the features you expect with the standard model are included here. LED headlights, daytime running lights, and taillights are just for starters. A blacktop roof, 18-inch orbit grey wheels set within run-flat tires, and satin aluminum trim are also included.

Inside, this trim features imitation leather seats and trim, 14-way power M sport seats, automatic climate control, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel. Keyless entry with push-button start is also standard.

In typical BMW fashion, the sDrive30i is available with Convenience ($1,450), Premium ($3,050), and Executive ($5,550) Packages. Upgrade with the Premium to get a head-up display, park assist system, wireless charging, heated front seats, and more.

M40i - From $64,695

Besides the more powerful engine, the M40i has upgraded exterior styling, including an aerodynamic kit. The interior features seats with lumbar support, heated front seats, and a heated steering wheel. Here, the Premium Package costs $1,400 while the Executive is priced at $2,500.

CarsDirect Tip

Stick with the standard 2020 BMW Z4 and opt for the pricey Executive Package and you’ll have nearly every safety, comfort, and performance option with it. The Z4 M40i only makes sense if you’re planning track time. Otherwise, save your cash and enjoy the top-down exhilaration BMW’s roadster affords.
