BMW Z4 Pricing - Australia

BMW Z4 Pricing - Australia

Ah, yes – the Supra landed last week, so it’s time for pricing for the sister car, the BMW Z4.

Here in Australia, we’re getting three variants to start the ball rolling.

As usual, BMW is not mucking about when it comes to sticker pricing, but a quick look at the spec sheets tells me they weren’t mucking about with equipment, either.

BMW Z4 sDrive 20i

Opening the range is the $84,900 20i. That comes with a 145kW (197PS)/320Nm 2.0-litre turbo four. BMW reckons that delivers a handy 0-100km/h (0-62mph) time of 6.6 seconds.

The entry-level car starts you off with an M Sport package, 18-inch alloys, heated seats, aluminium trim (no wood! Brilliant!), dual-zone climate control, head-up display, decent 10-speaker stereo with wireless Apple CarPlay as standard (also brilliant), wireless charging pad, LED headlights and a no-cost option Chinese language display. And leather seats, natch.

BMW Z4 sDrive 30i

The 30i has the same 2.0-litre unit, but turned up to 190kW (258PS) and 400Nm. The sprint to the metric ton is dispatched in 5.4 seconds.

Compared to the 20i package, BMW swaps the 18s for 19-inch alloys (with performance tyres, apparently), auto parking, Comfort Access Pacakge which means you can use your phone to start the car, M Sport brakes, M adaptive suspension and adaptive LED headlights.

BMW Z4 M40i

No BMW sports car range is complete without the excellent B58 3.0-litre straight-six with twin-scroll turbo. This one is good for 250kW (340PS) and 500Nm and a 0-100 time of 4.5 seconds.

Topping the range means you pick up all the stuff of the lower models as well as an M Performance suspension tune, M Sport diff, ambient lighting package, better seats and a 12-speaker stereo.

When, dammit?

Australian buyers can get their mitts on a Z4 from April 2019. It’s entirely likely dealers will get their mitts on your cash from today if you ask nicely.

What is everyone else paying?

A quick trip around the internet yielded these prices. All of them are basic and don’t include the usual stuff which you’ll know about if you’re from those places.
