2013 BMW Z4 Facelift & Z4 sDrive18i revealedTue, 18 Dec 2012 00:00:00 -0800
BMW has given the Z4 the smallest of facelifts for 2013 and added a new model – the BMW Z4 sDrive18i. Arrives April 2013.
All that’s really changed is a slightly different set of LED headlights and some new alloy options, with the smallest of detail changes to the trim on the interior. There’s also a new design pack that adds black and orange trim inside.
The one thing that is different for the Z4 for 2013 is the addition of a new enetry-level model – the BMW Z4 sDrive18.
The Z4 sDrive18 gets a 2.0 litre turbo producing 154bhp and 177lb/ft of torque, enough to get the bottom of the range Z4 to 62mph in 7.9 seconds and on to 137mph with official economy of 41.5mpg and emissions of 159g/km. The sDrive18 comes with a six-speed manual as standard although you can opt for an eight-speed auto.
Apart from the tiny tweaks and new entry-level model, the rest of the Z4 range - sDrive20i, sDrive28i, sDrive35i and sDrive35is – are as they were and an M Sport Package is available for added butchness.
The 2013 BMW Z4 arrives in the UK in April. No word on price yet.
