The year of the 4-cylinder?
Not since the 1.9-liter naturally aspirated 4-cylinder of the 318 and original Z3 has BMW sold anything less than an inline-6. The 2012 BMW Z4 is changing that.
Complete details of the updated 2012 BMW Z4 aren’t out yet, but expect this 2.0-liter 4-cylinder, with what BMW calls TwinPower Turbo technology, to surpass the inline-6 in both performance and efficiency. That technology includes the close-coupled turbocharger, direct injection and Valvetronic.
Playing in the dirt with the exhilarating 300-bhp twin-turbo BMW Z4 sDrive35i.
It revs to its 7000-rpm redline with a glassy-smooth snarl when you put your foot in it, yet the extremely wide torque band (300 lb.-ft. of torque from 1400-5000 rpm) also allows you to trundle in relaxed fashion — or rocket out of the corners at will.
