Going by the numbers alone, the sleek Z4 performs very well and garners an impressive 28 mpg overall. Another big draw is the retractable hardtop, designed such that with the top down there's little wind buffeting to threaten your hat or hairdo. However, this BMW falls short on the fun-to-drive leader board. Handling is capable and secure but lacks the tactile feedback and thrill potential a driving enthusiast craves.

BMW Z4 Road Test

Going by the numbers alone, the sleek Z4 performs very well and garners an impressive 28 mpg overall. Another big draw is the retractable hardtop, designed such that with the top down there's little wind buffeting to threaten your hat or hairdo. However, this BMW falls short on the fun-to-drive leader board. Handling is capable and secure but lacks the tactile feedback and thrill potential a driving enthusiast craves. The bowstring-taut ride is almost jarring at times and the cabin, though well finished, is a snug fit for folks of even average girth.
