BMW has facelifted the Z4, its two-seater roadster, and added a new entry-level model with added fleet appeal.

The Z4 Sdrive18i is priced from £27,610 and is capable of 41.5mpg and has a CO2 figure of 159g/km, the same efficiency figures as the Sdrive20i and Sdrive28i.

The Sdrive18i powered by a 156hp 2.0-litre petrol engine capable of 0-60mph in 7.9 seconds and a top speed of 137mph.

Design changes include new headlights and front bumper and chrome detailing to the side indicators. The Z4 also gains increased equipment levels including DAB radio, Xenon headlights, Bluetooth and USB connectivity as standard across the range.

There are also three new colours and two new alloy wheel designs available as well as a ‘Pure Traction Design’ pack that offers contrasting colours for the body and hood. The facelifted model goes on sale in March.
