Sleek styling, a high-class interior and plenty of performance combine to make the 2012 BMW Z4 a highly desirable roadster. Its new base engine for this year makes it even better.
- Powerful six-cylinder and efficient four-cylinder engines
- Quick-folding hardtop
- Comfortable ride
- Big trunk (with the top raised)
- Excellent visibility for a roadster.
- Not as invigorating and involving as Porsche rival
- Four-cylinder is clattery at idle
- Very pricey.
