Test Fest 2019 – BMW Z4 sDrive 30i Design Preview

BMW has unveiled an updated interpretation of the classical roadster concept.

The new BMW Z4 is ready to steal the show as a premium open-top sports car boasting an emotion-packed body design, a fully-electric soft-top roof, compact proportions and a squarely driver-focused interior.

Agility, dynamic performance and precise handling were all top priorities when developing the two-seater's body, powertrain and chassis.

The extremely high rigidity of the body structure and chassis mountings, the intelligent lightweight design and optimised aerodynamic properties provided the ideal basis for meeting these objectives.

The new design of the front and rear axles benefits not just the car's sporty on-road prowess, but its ride comfort too.

And the new BMW Z4 combines its pure sporting pedigree with a wealth of highly advanced, topclass equipment features on the driver assistance, operation and connectivity fronts.

From the outside, the way in which the roadster concept has evolved is particularly plain to see from the car's proportions.

The new BMW Z4 has a low-slung, sporty, compact appearance when viewed from any angle.

It is 85 millimetres longer than its predecessor (at 4,324 millimetres), 74 millimetres wider (now 1,864 millimetres) and 13 millimetres taller (1,304 millimetres).

The shortening of the wheelbase by 26 millimetres to 2,470 millimetres serves to sharpen agility, as do the notably wider tracks - 1,609 millimetres at the front (+ 98 mm) and 1,616 millimetres at the rear (+ 57 mm).

The car's central seating position, low centre of gravity and minimised weight, as well as ideal 50 : 50 weight distribution, also contribute to the intoxicating dynamism of the new BMW Z4.
