2023 BMW Z4 M40i Overview

What do you think when someone talks about a BMW? Sure, it is a car with various outstanding features. The luxury will be more apparent if we are talking about the higher series of BMW.

Despite not being included in the 7 or 8 Series, the Z4 remains a roadster that offers lots of magnificence. One of the most visible features is the car’s convertible roof. With this coming as its perks, the Z4 looks outstanding as if you are owning a sports car.

Of course, we are pretty sure that the speed and acceleration of this car may still be lacking from that in many sports cars. However, with such a generous price, it makes the Z4 M40i to be perfect for a thrill seeker coming with a lower budget.

In terms of looks and engine, we are not sure whether the 2023 BMW Z4 M40i will provide you with a major change or not. After all, there is no announcement from the carmaker so far.

However, many sources mentioned that the car may not undergo a massive facelift before its discontinuation. This also happens to its sibling—the Z4 sDrive30i.

The Exterior Looks

If you are planning to purchase this car, you should have known that the car is offering a sporty look on the outside. First, if you see on its front façade, the grille is designed kidney-shaped. This alone says a lot that the car is manufactured by BMW.

Compared to the SUV version, the grille is made flat yet wider. In addition, the headlights are made suitable for the look of a sports car alike. We aren’t sure yet whether the carmaker is using slimmer headlights or not, since the X series is said to be using this as part of the improvement.

As for the body colors, we aren’t sure whether the carmaker planning to add more options or not. So far, it is safe to say that the color options will remain the same. This means you will see the classic Alpine White, Black Sapphire Metallic, Glacier Silver Metallic, Frozen Grey Metallic, Misano Blue Metallic, as well as the bold San Francisco Red Metallic. Yes, if you are not a fan of metallic colors, the option is rare.

Interestingly, if you check the official website of the 2023 BMW Z4 M40i, you will know that the car will provide you a customization option through the ‘Build Your Feature’. However, this means you need to choose one of its packages (Shadowline Package).

Interior Aspect

Given the already stunning exterior, you may wonder whether the inner side of the car is crappy. Well, you should not worry about that.

Since it is a convertible car, then you should not worry about the headroom. The car is for two passengers only—one driver and one passenger, so it seems there is no reason that the carmaker makes the car to be stuffy.

As for the upholstery, you won’t need to complain since BMW provides you with three upholstery options which you can choose from SensaTec, Alcantara Leather, as well as Vernasca Leather. The upholstery color is also available to be customized.

Techs? Nothing to complain about. Driver assistance features, infotainment features, and instrument cluster, we are sure the carmaker will make it ready to use on your 2023 BMW Z4 M40i. All features will surely be upgraded already.

Engine Specs

Unfortunately, the car won’t have an electric powertrain to use—despite all the coolness. The Z4 M40i is still stuck with a gas-powered 3.0-L twin-power turbo inline-6 engine. With this engine, comes a breathtaking 382 HP. This is predicted to be the same for the 2023 version of the BMW Z4 M40i.

The 2023 BMW Z4 M40i is also using the rear-wheel drive as its drivetrain. As for its transmission, the car, which is predicted to not go too far from $64,000, will use an eight-speed sport automatic transmission.
