BMW's return path comes with a strong price.
The German brand has discovered Australia's pricing for the updated Z4 convertible price with prices ranging from $ 84,900 (before travel costs) when it arrived in April.
The three-tier range starts with 20i, followed by 30i ($ 104,900) and M40i ($ 124,900). All prices compared to the previous generation, which was last sold in 2016, have increased by $ 5,000.
20i and 30i are powered by a four-cylinder turbo engine in various melody states, making 145kW / 320Nm and 190kW / 400Nm respectively.
The highly advertised six-cylinder turbo (250kW / 500Nm) is only available in the M40i range.
This engine is shared with the recently launched Toyota Supra, which was developed with the Z4, and shares many of the foundations. Supra's price is expected to be significantly lower than Z4.
All Z4 are equipped with an eight-speed automatic transmission that controls the rear wheels.
The Z4 style, formed by Australian Calvin Luk, is dominated by the large brand kidney shape grid version and the broad and low masculine position. Significant air intake openings, wide body body wrinkles and large alloy wheels round off the head turning.
All versions are equipped with standalone emergency braking, lane departure warning, automatic high beam, semi-autonomous parking and head.
The inside of the Z4 is dominated by an adjustable 12.3-inch display of instruments and a 10.25-inch information and entertainment screen. Connectivity is navigation oriented, Apple CarPlay, Bluetooth and digital radio. All variants are equipped with leather upholstery with faux leather upholstery.
The soft roof can be operated up to 50 km / h in just 10 seconds.
