The new 16-valve engine is the same 1,995cc unit featured in the BMW 1 Series and the latest BMW 320i Saloon and produces 150bhp at 6,200rpm and 200Nm of torque at 3,600rpm.
The new Z4 introduces a new entry-level point for BMW roadster ownership at £22,755 on-the-road. An SE version adds additional specification to an equivalent level as the six-cylinder Z4 2.2i SE, including the Z4’s automatic folding soft-top, front fog lights, heated door mirrors and an on-board computer. The Z4 2.0i SE is priced at £23,465 on-the-road.
The new four-cylinder engine is made at BMW’s Hams Hall engine facility in Warwickshire and is EU4 compliant.

The 5 Series now starts with a standard specification including Park Distance Control (PDC), auto-dimming mirror and 17-inch alloy wheels. The 5 Series range now begins at an on-the-road price of £26,670 for the six-cylinder 523i.
