What Is the 2020 BMW Z4?
New for 2019, the BMW Z4 is a two-seat soft-top sports car that comes with rear-wheel drive and a choice of two turbocharged engines: a 255-horsepower, turbo 2.0-liter four-cylinder or a new 382-hp, turbo 3.0-liter six-cylinder. Both engines work with an eight-speed automatic transmission. The Z4 is the result of a collaboration between BMW and Toyota; for its part, the Japanese automaker launched a new version of its famed Supra. Z4 competitors include the Mercedes-Benz SLC-Class and Audi TT.

Should I Buy the 2020 BMW Z4?
The Z4 is a balanced sports car, and the M40i version offers strong acceleration and a rousing exhaust note. We also like the strong brakes in the optional Track Handling Package. The steering could use more feedback, and some purists will bemoan the lack of a manual transmission. There’s no Android Auto connectivity, either.
