Because the current Bmw Z4 (E89) was introduced four years ago, Bmw decided that it was time for a refresh. As a result, it introduced the new Z4 Facelift and announced that it will bring the car in January, at the 2013 Detroit Auto Show. Still, you will need some eagle eyes to see the differences between this and the outgoing model as the Bavarian manufacturer applied some subtle changes.
First of all, we have modified front and rear bumpers, but don’t expect something fancy. As expected, the front bumper features LED daytime running lights now. Moreover, the new Z4 features three new body colours available exclusively with the Design Pure Traction option, which is also new. Black and orange tones create a particularly absorbing contrast of colours in the interior. B
Bmw is also introducing a new entry-level engine: the 2.0-liter developing 156 hp (115 kW) found on the Z4 sDrive18i. This new entry-level model can also be ordered with an eight-speed automatic gearbox.
For those interested, the selection of driver assistance systems and Bmw ConnectedDrive mobility services has also been expanded. If the Professional navigation system is specified, the ConnectedDrive Services option enables use of internet-based information and entertainment services inside the car.
