BMW India has launched the much awaited new-generation Z4 Roadster in the country. The all-new BMW Z4 Roadster is available with a choice of two engine variants – the BMW Z4 sDrive20i and the BMW M Performance model, the BMW Z4 M40i. Prices for the 2019 BMW Z4 Roadster start at ₹ 64.90 lakh for the sDrive20i variant and the M40i is priced at ₹ 78.90 lakh (all prices, ex-showroom India).
The BMW convertible comes as a Completely Built Unit (CBU) to India and bookings are open at the BMW’s dealerships across the country.
The all-new BMW Z4 Roadster gets an evolutionary styling over the previous generation model. The long bonnet, the classic soft top and the short overhangs define the characteristic roadster silhouette of the car. At the push of a button, the classic soft-top opens and closes electrically in ten seconds. With large Air Breathers on the front wheel arches and aerodynamic air vents, the all-new BMW Z4 Roadster looks and moves like a true driver’s machine. The convertible rides on 18-inch or 19-inch alloys, while the rear gets wraparound LED taillights with the gloss black finished bumper and twin exhaust tips.
The new BMW Z4 Roadster is available in two engine variants. The Z4 sDrive20i uses a 2.0-litre four-cylinder petrol motor that produces 197 hp and a maximum torque of 320 Nm at 1,450 – 4,200 rpm. The car accelerates from 0 -100 km / hr in just 6.6 seconds. The BMW Z4 M40i conjures the power required for its breathtaking performance from a three-litre six-cylinder in-line engine which produces 340 hp and a maximum torque of 500 Nm at 1,600 – 4,500 rpm. The car accelerates from 0 -100 km / hr in just 4.5 seconds. Both engines are paired with the 8-speed Steptronic Sport Transmission.
BMW EfficientDynamics doubles ‘Sheer Driving Pleasure’ with features such as Auto Start-Stop, ECO PRO mode, Brake-Energy Regeneration, 50:50 Weight Distribution and lightweight construction amongst other innovative technologies.
