Testers are positive about the Z4’s innards – now a much more refined and upmarket place to be than the previous model’s cabin.

The cabin is attractive and well laid out, with a comfortable, low, driving position. One or two testers suggest that the wheel rim is perhaps a little too thick, which is a issue raised with many BMW models. It divides opinion, so it is best to try it for yourself.

Also unlike the previous Z4, this model is a drop-top only, but with a folding metal roof to mix the best of both worlds. It disappears behind you in 20 seconds, though does reduce the boot space from 310 to 180 litres. With the roof down, testers say there is both too much wind buffeting and scuttle shake.

Much better than the last one, just keep the roof up if you're going to cover some serious miles

Like other BMWs, the Z4 features the firm’s iDrive infotainment system. We reckon this is the best of its kind currently on the market thanks to logical menu progressions and a clear, easy-to-understand layout. The rotary dial in the middle of the cabin is easier to use on the move than the touchscreens fitted to rival cars.
