2012 BMW Z4 sDrive28i – First Drive Review

Any new engine is big news to us, but when a new powerplant comes along and replaces one of our favorite engines—BMW’s naturally aspirated inline-six, in this case—we pay extra-close attention. This fall, the base Z4 and 5-series won’t have the perfectly demure and smooth-revving inline-six. Instead, the Z4 sDrive28i and the 528i will have a new turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder implanted between their front fenders.

On paper, the engine is off to a good start. BMW claims the turbocharged 2.0-liter makes 240 hp at 6500 rpm and 260 lb-ft of torque at a low 1250 rpm. The redline is 7000 rpm. Compared with the naturally aspirated six of the 2011 Z4, the new engine comes up short by 15 horses but bests it by 40 lb-ft. Given that it has two fewer cylinders, it’s also shorter, and the majority of the engine’s mass sits behind the front-axle line.

Boosted Engine, Elevated Aggression

The transplant has changed the Z4’s character. It’s a little more ill-tempered, a little louder, a bit more likely to spit in public. The engine isn’t rough, but there is a slight coarseness from the engine and exhaust under stress. The bark is appropriate for a sports car; it makes the Z4 a bit more exciting and alive. There are other thrilling noises, too. Whereas BMW’s other boosted engines keep their turbo whine to a minimum, as if they were embarrassed by it, step into the boost in the Z4, and the turbocharger whistles proudly.
