Q. What is the difference between Z2 and Z4?
  • The Z2 variant is pretty basic, with halogen lamps, 16-inch steel wheels, electrically powered steering wheel only for the petrol variants (hydraulic assist for diesel), and power windows. On the other hand, the Z4 variant gains some necessary equipment like wheel covers, a cooled glove box, an AC module for the second row, height adjustment for the driver’s seat with lumbar support, cruise control, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. For a better understanding of compatibility and driving comfort, we would suggest you to take a test drive. Follow the link and select your desired city for dealership details.
