2011 BMW Z4 Price, Review & Picture – New Car Reviews, For the 2011 model year, BMW has added the Z4 sDrive35is to its lineup. The sDrive35is gets the same 3.0-liter turbo I-6 found in other BMW’s, but this one gets a power bump, taking the horsepower from 300 to 335 and the torque increases from 300 to 332. Plus, an electronically-controlled overboost function briefly increases torque under full load by another 37 pound-feet.
The newest generation of the BMW Z4 is different from the first generation. The 2011 BMW Z4 Coupe has an angular body and more curves. It’s an attractive, sleek, impressive, smooth ride. The newer Z4 offers the same power as the 3.0 L turbo in-line six engine when directly compared to the twin-turbo engine and the newest creations offer better fuel-economy and on the road performance. The introduction of a new engine allows the vehicle to supply better pressure for improved power, more intake airflow, and improvements over the Z4 predecessor.
The BMW Z4 has a high price tag, especially if you start adding on features. Prices of the car can quickly rise to as much a $60,000.00; this affects the desirability of the car, especially in light of the fact that it has restricted cargo space and is only suitable for two passengers. The new BMW Z4has a body akin to the 2010 variation but the newer model has add-ons in the cabin including Kansas walnut-leather inclusions. Inside the vehicle one will find a gorgeous contrast between wood/leather and trim/plastic.
The BMW Z4 sDrive35is is available with a choice of six paintwork colors. In addition to Alpine White, Titanium Silver, Black Sapphire, Space Grey, and Deep Sea Blue, the Z4 Roadster is now available for the first time in Melbourne Red metallic.
M Sport upgrades also carry into the cockpit. A new thick-rimmed M leather steering wheel, an M driver’s footrest, and sport seats. Grey-faced instrument dials, Anthracite-colored roof lining, M door sill strips as well as M interior trim in Aluminum Carbon.
The BMW Z4 sDrive35is includes new M Sport upgrades such as adaptive M Suspension which combines a ride-height reduction of 10 millimeters (almost 0.4-inch) with electronically controlled shock absorbers (Dynamic Damping Control) thus providing a comfortable ride while increasing the vehicles agility. The Z4 features four-wheel anti-lock brakes (ABS), side seat mounted airbags, driver and passenger side airbag head extension, driver and passenger knee airbag, airbag occupancy sensor, traction control, and a DSC stability control are all standard.
