Enhanced Z4 roadster headed down under early in 2023

The latest iteration of BMW’s acclaimed Z4 roadster model will launch in Australia early next year with a host of key revisions, including fresh design accents for the exterior, newly available paint finishes, a new alloy wheel design and an expanded range of equipment.

BMW Australia will continue its existing and successful two variant line-up via the Z4 sDrive20i and M40i, with both providing high levels of response and efficiency from their TwinPower turbo engines and eight-speed Steptronic Sport transmissions.

The styling package for the new model includes a new kidney grille design with horizontal slats, and new front apron side air curtain intakes. Both elements serve to deliver a fresh and dynamic look to the front end of the BMW Z4, regardless of the variant.

The revised optional M Sport Plus package now integrates M Lights Shadow Line too, which replaces chrome touches for the headlight element surrounds with black. The enhancements add flourish to the rear-wheel drive soft top roadster.
