Autocar ‘s take on the Z4 is a little less stellar than other reviews but not that removed from what we ‘ve read elsewhere:
The cabin is designed thoughtfully and its perceived quality is beyond criticism. Little wonder BMW sees no need for a coupé-only version of this car, because it is so capable at swapping its feel between open-top sportster and snug coupé. The drivetrain on this sDrive35i model is excellent to its core, too.
However, it’s hard to escape the feeling that there’s something missing. The Z4’s steering isn’t intuitive, and although the chassis will ultimately exhibit fine balance and ability, getting it to reveal its talents is a less enjoyable exercise than it should be.
