2009 BMW Z4 Review
This review was written when the 2009 BMW Z4 was new.
The all-new 2009 BMW Z4 is improved in every way and now features a sleek retractable hard top, standard.
The BMW Z4 is completely redesigned for the 2009 model year. And though it isn't a huge departure from the previous generation, this year's model is expected to turn more heads and drop more jaws than ever before -- especially with its retractable hardtop. With this much-welcomed addition, the Z4 can now double as both a coupe and roadster.
If you're in the market for luxury sports roadster, be sure to test drive the class-leading Porsche Boxster. It costs roughly the same as the Z4, but is a much more capable sports performer. Plus the Porsche name exudes an air of exclusiveness that BMW can't match.
The 2009 Z4 is available in two trims, the sDrive30i and turbocharged sDrive35i.
- "The outgoing BMW Z4, like the Z3 before it, was widely considered to be merely an expensive 'sporty' car -- a Miata for well-off college coeds. But a full redesign for the 2009 BMW Z4 moves the car into the rarefied realm of true luxury/performance roadsters. The new Z4 is significantly more refined, there's a little more room inside and it now boasts a power-folding hardtop." -- Edmunds
