Big performance in a small package; major exterior redesign for 2010; iDrive
With the of the coupe model's exit, there are just two trim levels for the Z4 in 2010, both with creatively spelled names: the sDrive30i and sDrive35i. They're both 2-seater convertibles with straight-six engines and rear-wheel drive, but the 35i features a twin-turbo, direct-inject unit that's capable of 306 hp and 295 lb-feet of torque, compared with the 258 hp and 228 lb-ft of the 30i. A 6-speed manual is standard in both cars, but the 30i offers an optional 6-speed auto, while the 35i can upgrade to a dual-clutch 7-speed auto. Both automatic transmissions have steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters.
Four-wheel disc brakes and ABS are standard on the Z4, as is TPMS. Rollover protection, traction control, brake assist, stability control, daytime, auto-on headlights and active knee protection are standard too. Driver and passenger front and side air bags are also included. The insulated top, should you ever want to put it up, can do so in just 20 seconds.
BMW packs a lot of luxury into the small Z4 package, and a lot of the goodies are standard equipment. Rain-sensing wipers, heater mirrors, MP3 and HD capable sound system, keyless entry, and a leather-wrapped steering wheel all come with either trim level. Rear parking assist, heated seats, a navigation system and a hard disk drive for the sound system are optional.
The 35i does have a few standard features not found on the 30i, in addition to 50 more horsepower. Its 17-inch wheels are slightly wider than those on the 30i, and it comes with air conditioning, climate control and leather seats, whereas those are options on the base-level Z4. The Sport Package increases the top speed limiter, adds adaptive M suspension for even sportier handling, swaps out the tires for 18-inch run-flat tires and includes sport seats.
The 2010 BMW Z4 got an overhaul in the design department, courtesy of an all-woman design team at BMW headquarters. The roadster features elegant lines and, in the top-of-the-line sDrive35i, more than 300 hp from the new 3.0-liter engine. The coupe has been removed from the lineup, and now features a folding hard top instead for use in any weather.
The entry-level sDrive30i has just as much style and nearly as much power as its big brother, the sDrive35i, but with a starting price $900 lower. Both cars pack an inline 6-cylinder under the hood, and the hard top extends the Z4's drivability past summer.
