BMW Z4 Facelift Revealed Ahead of Detroit Debut

BMW has revealed the mildly revised Z4 ahead of its debut at the Detroit Auto Show next month.

Visual changes are very small and for a person not familiar with all the details on the current Z4 will have a hard time telling the difference between the facelift and its predecessor.

We can see restyled LED headlights, updated front and rear fascias and fender vents. Three new metallic colours are offered including Mineral Grey, Glacier Silver and Valencia Orange. There are also new 17 and 18-inch alloy wheels.

Inside there is a new optional Design Pure Traction styling pack with black and orange contrasting trim as well as an internet-connected navigation system.

The biggest news is a new entry-level Z4 sDrive18i, that is powered by a detuned 154bhp twin-turbo 2.0-litre engine mated to an six-speed manual or an optional eight-speed automatic gearbox.

0-62mph comes in 7.9 seconds and the top speed is 137mph. Clearly not the fastest compact roadster on the market, but the average fuel economy of 41.5mpg is pretty impressive.

The remaining Z4 sDrive20i, sDrive28i, sDrive35i and sDrive35is engines carry over with no changes.
