Introducing the 2013 BMW Z4 roadster

JonathanDecember 20, 2012

Ahead of its official premiere at the Detroit Motor Show next month, the cover has been lifted on the 2013 BMW Z4 roadster.

The vehicle presents a number of enhancements over the outgoing model, including subtle cosmetic tweaks and a new entry-level engine for motorists to test out.

Highlighting this former point is the fact that drivers who step inside the revised BMW Z4 will be treated to lush upholstery which is decorated in high-gloss black surrounds.

These details can be glimpsed upon around the car’s air vents and innovative iDrive controller, though motorists can choose a sleek wood trim option if they would rather tap into something a little different.

For those hoping to go the whole nine yards, the new Design Pure Traction option pack could be the more suitable choice. With this style, drivers will be treated to an eye-catching Alcantara interior trim, complete with contrasting orange panels and stitching.

The exterior of the 2013 BMW Z4 roadster has not been altered quite as much as the car’s interior when compared to the outgoing model. However, fans of the series will notice that a set of headlight lenses, a side indicator repeater trim feature and optional alloy wheels are all new features.

When it comes to the new Z4’s engine options, BMW has opted to introduce a new entry-level model with the sDrive18i motor.

Packing a turbocharged 2.0-litre petrol engine under its bonnet, the motor is capable of producing 154bhp, achieve 41.5mpg and limit CO2 emissions to just 159g/km.

The 2013 BMW Z4 roadster hits roads across the UK next March.

In order to make sure that the time between now and then flies by, motorists are encouraged to sample the equally aggressive BMW 3 Series 320i M Sport two-door convertible.

At a cost of £404.20 per month, motorists have the opportunity to get behind the wheel of a vehicle that can achieve 0-62mph in just 9.1 seconds and limit CO2 emissions to a respectable 159g/km.
