The Z4 will appeal to those looking for a comfortable and relatively practical convertible sports car. However, if you're looking for something that's primarily precise, fun and exciting to drive, both the Audi TT Roadster and Porsche Boxster outshine it considerably.
The trimSee full equipment
Sport is the 'entry-level' trim and comes with pretty much all that you might expect and need, including 18in alloy wheels, two-zone air-conditioning, cruise control, heated M Sport seats, front and rear parking sensors and automatic LED headlights and wipers. On top of that you get BMW's cracking 10.3in touchscreen infotainment system with DAB radio, sat-nav, Bluetooth and Apple CarPlay.
The engineSee full engine specs
The sDrive 20i's 194bhp, four-cylinder 2.0-litre engine offers decent performance, but for keener drivers its performance is underwhelming (0-62mph comes in a relatively lazy 6.6 seconds) and it sounds rather dreary and monotonous when accelerating hard. The sluggish eight-speed automatic gearbox, which comes as standard, doesn't add to the sports car theme, either.
