BMW Z4 to be launched on 14th Nov 2013

 

 

BMW's two seater sports car, the Z4, will be launched in it's all-new avatar on the 14th of November 2013. The new Z4 will feature minor updates to the sucessful two seater roadster with the aim to strengthen the aging platform's market relevance. With stunning GT looks featuring a long swooping bonnet and a short stubby tail, a metal folding roof that allows the driver the best of both worlds and a fantastic engine package under the bonnet, the Z4 is most certainly one of the best cars to come out of the BMW brand in recent years.

 

The Z4 though is more than five years old in it's current avatar and the updated Z4, which will be launched in India on the 14th is nothing more than a minor facelift. With a newly designed headlight, slightly redesigned bumper and a black roof option, the average joe will find it hard to differentiate the new version from the older one. However, that said, the Z4 is still one of the most beautiful cars that one can buy under a crore and is also one of the best drivers cars in it's segment. Although newer competitiors like the Porsche Boxster and the Mercedes SLK have overtaken the Z4 both in relevance and in some cases, performance, the Z4 is still a force to reckon with.

The Z4 in India will come in the sDrive35is guise but if rumors are to be believed, BMW will also launch the cheaper Z4 18i and Z4 20i to make the Z4 much more accessible to the Indian market. The 35i will feature a 3.0 Litre 6-cylinder twin-turbo engine producing 340PS and 400NM of torque. The Z4 18i features a 2.0 Litre turbocharged petrol engine making 156PS while the Z4 20i features a 2.0 Litre turbocharged petrol engine making 183Bhp. Expect the new Z4 to be launched at about Rs 70.0 Lakh (ex-showroom, Mumbai).
