2016 BMW Z4 For Sale In San Francisco
It would be easy to think the Z4 had been with us for longer than it has as it represented an almost seamless transition from its predecessor, the X3, when it first entered the market in 2002. The Z4 is a rear-wheel drive sports car that now has a clever folding hardtop after the original soft-top format was replaced when the second-generation Z4 was launched in 2009. If you like the idea of a sleek BMW coupe convertible for open-top cruising when the sun's shining, our 2016 BMW Z4 Overview will tell you what to expect from this stunning car.
The BMW Z4 is every-inch the classic roadster, with just the right proportions of a short rear and long, low hood. But unlike some perhaps more exotic takes on the format, this is 100 percent German in terms of its advanced aerodynamics and engineering you know you can rely on.
The converging arcs, smooth swells, and raised character lines of this latest Z4 give it a fresh feel that belies the fact it's now been a few years since its last major redesign. This is a car that looks every bit as contemporary today as it did when the second-generation was first unveiled. Being sporty and conservative all at the same time, the Z4 delivers a combination of attributes you'll struggle to locate anywhere else in the luxury roadster segment.
There are three different versions of the 2016 BMW Z4, which are the sDrive28i, the sDrive35i and the sDrive35is.

The sDrive28i is powered by a 2.0 liter TwinPower turbo inline four-cylinder engine that produces 240 horsepower and 260lb.-ft. of torque, which is then sent to the rear-wheels through your choice of either a six-speed manual or eight-speed automatic transmission. The sDrive28i will therefore get you to 60 mph from a standing start in a pretty rapid 5.4 seconds, and it also offers more than respectable EPA fuel economy figures of 22 mpg in the city and 34 mpg on the highway.*
Step up to the sDrive35i version of the Z4 and the engine is upgraded to a 3.0-liter inline-six that gives you 300 horsepower and 300 lb.-ft. of torque to play with. A seven-speed dual clutch transmission (DCT) is standard with this model, and this combination offers a 0 to 60 mph time of just five seconds.
The Z4 sDrive35is also utilizes a 3.0-liter inline-six, but this time it delivers an even more potent 335 horsepower and 332 lb.-ft. of torque. There's no manual transmission option as this model also comes with the seven-speed DCT, but the sDrive35is delivers a fantastic driver experience with a 0 to 60 mph time of just 4.8 seconds and a top speed of 155 mph.
You won’t find any version of the Z4 lacking in terms of standard and available features and equipment. And there's some seriously cutting-edge tech on offer here such as the BMW Online Portal, real-time traffic information, and smartphone-based BMW apps capable of scanning Twitter or Facebook posts and reading them out loud for you. The German automaker's various remote telematics services are also included in the ConnectedDrive package, while the likes of navigation, satellite radio, heated front seats, and plenty more features available as standalone or package upgrade options.
