BMW has launched the facelifted Z4 roadster in India with a price tag of Rs 89.30 lakh (ex-showroom). That is more than Rs 10 lakh more expensive than the price at which it was sold when it initially landed in the country. Unlike before, there is only a single variant on offer, which happens to be the top-of-the-range M-spec M40i model. The S20i model, though available overseas and was available here before, hasn't been introduced with the facelift. It is still a completely imported unit (CBU) and here's everything you need to know about it:


Being a minor facelift, one needs a magnifying glass to truly identify the differences on the new Z4 roadster. The three-section lower intakes get more aggressive cuts and creases, while the side sills are now more contoured. Part of the M Sport package, you get a dark gray finish on the kidney grille, ORVMs, and even the trapezoidal exhaust pipes along with 19-inch lightweight alloy wheels for that stealthy look. Overall, the original long clamshell bonnet, the chunky LED headlights and the sleek L-shaped tail lamps have been retained and are clear identifiers of the new-gen Z4.

Cabin and features

The cabin design is unchanged. You get the same layout as before but with M-specific sports seats, steering wheels, and seat belts do give it a sporty sense of occasion. Materials used on the inside include leather and Alcantara, which are contrasted by blue stitched bits. In terms of features, you get wireless Android Auto and Apple CarPlay, ambient lighting, a 10.25-inch digital driver’s display, large infotainment system, heads-up display, wireless phone charging and a 12-speaker Harman Kardon sound system. 

Its feature kit includes six airbags, ABS with EBD, a rear view camera, cruise control, and a parking assistance system (optional). 


No changes have been made here, as the BMW Z4 M40i continues with its 3.0-litre twin-turbo inline-six petrol engine making 340PS of power and 500Nm of torque. An 8-speed automatic gearbox is used for transmission duties and 0-100 kmph takes just 4.5 seconds. 

To complement its potent powertrain, the Z4 M40i gets M-specific adaptive suspension, brakes, and differential to help offer a more poised driving dynamics.
