New BMW Z4 Quotes


The entry-level 18i version has a 154bhp 2.0-litre engine which has a lot of low down torque but for speed the sDrive28i is the top performer. This is also the best engine for comparison (3.0-litre engine with 265bhp output) as it has a record 0-60mph time of 5.7 seconds which is 1.0 seconds faster than a Porsche Boxster. The two models have unexpectedly similar top speeds, with the Z4 coming in at 146mph and the Boxster sits just ahead at 149mph. It is the response of the Z4 that keeps it ahead with its light steering and handling, it takes to twists and turns on the road with ease, to see the full performance of the Z4 book a test drive now at

Running Costs

The Z4 really comes into its own with its economy figures, particularly against the Porsche Boxster as it will only manage 29mpg and has CO2 emissions of 239g/km. This is vastly uneconomical compared to the Z4 which will return an average of 31.7mpg and has CO2 emissions of 159g/km. Similarly the BMW comes in with a purchase price of around £29,400 which is £8,800 cheaper than the starting price of the Boxster. The Z4 is also available with a pre-paid servicing package and it benefits from strong residual prices, retaining much of its value for selling on later.


There are five trims available across the Z4 range with a lot of equipment available as standard, as it comes with 16" alloy wheels, an Isofix mounting point, automatic air conditioning and a CD stereo with inputs for MP3 players and iPods. There is also hill start assist, and the Sport trim has added extras of 18" alloys, sport suspension and M Sports seats and steering wheel.
