The 2017 BMW Z2 will be a sibling to the BMW Z4. This roadster is slim and also smaller than its sibling the Z4. Even so, it will easily slip into the slot vacated by the Z3, which has since been discontinued. It is also a two-seat convertible that is light in weight and minimized to convey sense of spry flow. This front-wheel drive vehicle is also closely related to the Active Tourer and the Mini Hardtop. Over the recent ten to twenty years, there have been a number of pleasing roadsters that have front-wheel drive. The Fiat Barchetta and the Alfa Romeo Spider are close competitors to the Z2. Those two vehicles were fun to drive but perhaps not as fun to drive as the new Z2.
2017 BMW Z2 Design
On the outside, the top has been slashed and the lines of the vehicle are very slim and attractive. The Z2 has been designed to be not only very attractive but it will also impress true BMW fans. It will be based on the UKL1 platform and its body is going to be built out of lightweight materials like carbon fiber and aluminum. The use of such materials will help to make the car 750 pounds lighter than the Z4. Although the carmaker has not provided any images of its new Z2, we can say that this car will look very beautiful and its interiors will be very luxurious.
Inside the cabin, there is a nice dashboard that is tight as well as sporty. A nice touchscreen display is also installed and though the Z2 does not get quite as many features as its bigger relative the Z4, the features that are available are more than enough to suit your needs. The carmaker has used a number of advanced technologies and it also offers very nimble traveling dynamics.
2017 BMW Z2 Engine and Performance
Under the hood, BMW will probably offer 3 and 4-cylinder engines which will be able to produce between 160 and 230 horsepower. There is a possibility that the carmaker will use either a 1.5-liter 3-cylinder engine or a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine to power up the Z2. Also, a 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine will be used because it is able to generate a nice 300 horsepower of power. There are also rumors doing the rounds that suggest that BMW will use a very clean 3-cylinder diesel engine as it is designed to minimize CO2 emissions. The carmaker has also gone to great lengths to ensure good fuel efficiency. So, expect the Z2 to perform at 30 mpg in combined driving conditions. However, if you opt for the M model then that model is not designed to deliver quite as impressive fuel efficiency figures.
2017 BMW Z2 Release Date and Price
In all probability, the new 2017 BMW Z2 will be released into the market sometime at the end of next year or the beginning of 2017. The 2017 BMW Z2 will cost about 30,000 dollars and more. If you opt for the high-end M model then you could end up paying as much as 50, 000 dollars for the car. The 2017 BMW Z2 will probably get a number of features that will make you think that you are getting good value for your money.
