BMW India will launch the new 2014 BMW Z4 Roadster on 14th next month. The 2014 BMW Z4 Roadster will be the third launch by BMW India this year (the first two being of the 1-Series in September this year).
Internationally, the 2014 BMW Z4 is available with as many as three engine options- a 4 pot 2.0 liters and two 6 cylinder 3.0 liters. BMW India is likely to offer the Z4 in the sDrive35i variant with the 6 cylinder 3.0 litre unit in the 306 PS state of tune. The engine will come mated to a 7 speed dual clutch automatic transmission. This is the same gearbox that is available on the M5. The sDrive35i variant is rated at 17 mpg in city and 24 mpg on highway.
The 2014 BMW Z4 will come with a host of standard features and equipments such as leatherette upholstery, dual zone automatic climate control, an AM/FM/CD stereo system with HD Radio and AUX and USB inputs, Bluetooth smartphone connectivity, rain-sensing wipers, heated mirrors, power-adjustable seats, bi-xenon headlights and 17-inch alloy wheels. The BMW Z4 2014 will be a direct rival to the Porsche Boxter, Audi TT and Mercedes SLK.
In all probability, the new 2014 Z4 will be priced higher than the current model. We expect the car to have a starting price of INR 70 lakhs.
