Have the midlevel SE trim. The SE includes a sport-tuned suspension for better handling. Don’t be worried about a stiff ride, although the SE continues to be relatively comfortable on the road. The SE can also be an excellent bargain considering all the safety and tech equipment you get for the money. Finally, the SE can be obtained with a wide variety of options, so you can pick and choose which ones are right for the budget.
Crossover SUVs might be most of the rage, but there is still something to be said for the tried-and-true midsize sedan. Exhibit A: the 2020 BMW Z4. Coming off a redesign just this past year, the 2020 BMW Z4 is really a spacious, fuel-efficient sedan with plenty of standard safety equipment and a lot of options to decide on from.
As has been the case for some time, you will get the 2020 BMW Z4 with a four-cylinder engine or perhaps a stronger V6, or you will get the miserly 2020 BMW Z4 Hybrid. On the highway, the 2020 BMW Z4 is comfortable and compliant. 2020 BMW Z4 also offers two sporty versions that infuse the 2020 BMW Z4 with a bit of extra personality. Inside, the 2020 BMW Z4 offers a simple yet feature-packed cabin, particularly if you opt for one of many upper trim levels. There are plenty of options to select from along the way.
The 2020 BMW Z4 is really as competent because they come. It’s well-priced overall, and modern feature content helps it be supremely an easy task to drive. If you’re looking for something with a bit more class and space when compared to a small sedan, the 2020 BMW Z4 might just be the sedan for you.
The 2020 BMW Z4 is the bottom trim. It includes a relatively light load of features which includes 16-inch steel wheels, automatic LED headlights, cloth upholstery, a height-adjustable driver’s seat, a rearview camera, keyless entry, a 7-inch touchscreen interface, navigation (GPS Scout Link), Apple CarPlay and Amazon Alexa connectivity, one USB port, Bluetooth, a Wi-Fi hotspot, and a six-speaker sound system.
Standard on every 2020 BMW Z4 Safety Sense, which is a suite of driver assistance features including adaptive cruise control, forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, lane departure alert with steering assistance, and automatic high beams.
On the following rung up the ladder is the LE.It adds a power-adjustable driver’s seat, 17-inch alloy wheels, a 60/40-split folding back seat and a car alarm. For a sporty dynamic, look at the SE.It adds a sport-tuned suspension, revised steering calibration, 18-inch wheels, simulated-leather upholstery (SofTex) seats and paddle shifters.
You can consider the XLE and the XSE trim levels as versions of the LE and the SE, respectively, with a variety of additional comfort and convenience items. Highlights include larger wheels, dual-zone automatic climate control, leather upholstery, a head-up display, blind-spot monitoring, keyless ignition, a power-adjustable front passenger seat, extra USB ports, a more impressive 8-inch touchscreen, and wireless smartphone charging.
Lots of the features located on the upper trim levels could be included with the low trim levels as options. Other notable options include a sunroof, a JBL speakers along with an integrated navigation system, a head-up display, and a top-down parking camera system.
As sedans go, the 2020 BMW Z4 stuff-hauling credentials are pretty solid. The cargo area is large and opens wide, plus the back seat is easy to fold down to fit longer items. There are enough cabin storage options to make many people happy. Loading a car seat is straightforward, too.
Cabin storage is good however not stellar. The forward center console bin is great for concealing items but includes a hard, slippery floor, so they really slide around noisily. The console bin at your elbow is just a decent size, and you can find modest door pockets in the leading and rear that are good for small water bottles only.
The 2020 BMW Z4 features a large trunk, and the 60/40-split folding back seat with trunk-mounted release handles make it an easy task to expand the space. Loading groceries or luggage is helped out by the wide opening and a low liftover height.
Child safety seat accommodation
It’s very easy to mount a car seat, with obvious and easily accessible lower anchors and package tray-mounted tether point, both under plastic covers. There’s room enough so your front seat need not be scooted completely forward.
