You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

Model Preview

The BMW Z4 entered its third generation in 2019 and has been through a fair number of changes since. After a refreshed exterior and other updates in 2023, the 2024 BMW Z4 will arrive with no notable updates.

This two-seat roadster underwent several visual updates in 2023. These included a new 19-inch light alloy wheel option, three new color options (Thundernight metallic, Portimao Blue metallic, and Skyscraper Grey metallic), and available M Shadowline Lights.

It also received an updated M Sport Package that became standard on the Z4 sDrive30i and included three-section front air intakes, distinctive side-sill contouring, a rear apron with bold edging, restyled side air intakes, and a revised BMW kidney grille. These updates continue into the 2024 Z4 unchanged.


Inside, the 2024 BMW Z4 will continue with the same driver-focused cabin it had in 2023. This cabin includes sport seats, forward-facing lines, and a minimalist design that allows the driver to maintain focus on the road ahead. Buyers seeking extra sportiness will be happy to hear it’ll continue with the standard MSport Package in the Z4 sDrive30i model, which includes an M leather steering wheel, M Sport seats, M pedals, an M driver’s footrest, and a SensaTec-upholstered dashboard.

Under its hood, the 2024 BMW Z4 will continue with two engine options. The standard engine in the Z4 sDrive30i is a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder that delivers 255 horsepower (hp) and 295 pound-feet (lb-ft) of torque. The Z4 M40i includes a 3.0-liter turbocharged six-cylinder that pumps out 382 hp and 369 lb-ft of torque. Both engines mate to an eight-speed Steptronic automatic transmission that delivers the power to the rear wheels. Reaching 60 mph takes 5.2 seconds in the base model and 3.9 seconds in the M40i.

Neither the IIHS nor the NHTSA have tested the current-generation Z4 for safety, and we don’t expect them to. What we do know is BMW includes lane-departure warning and low-speed automatic emergency braking on the 2024 Z4. However, all the other high-end safety and driver-assist technology we’re used to seeing on Bimmers is not available on this roadster.

Model Pricing & Release Date

The 2024 BMW Z4 is available for purchase now, and its prices start at $53,600 for the base sDrive30i model and rise to $66,300 for the M40i model.

The Z4 is part of a dying breed of sports car, so it has few direct competitors. Its closest competition will include the Chevrolet Corvette, Jaguar F-Type, and the Porche 718 Boxster.
