BMW confirmed today that the new BMW Z4 sDrive28i Roadster will be the first model in the U.S. to feature the company’s new powerful, efficient and clean TwinPower Turbo 4-cylinder engine. It marks the return of BMW 4-cylinder power to the United States for the first time in over a decade.
“This newest engine, another part of the company’s on-going development of BMW EfficientDynamics, is the latest to combine twin-scroll turbocharging technology with high-precision direct injection and BMW’s Valvetronic throttle-less control system,” BMW said. “Taken together, these technologies improve performance while at the same time reducing emissions and lowering consumption.”

Power for the BMW Z4 sDrive28i comes from a 2.0L TwinPower Turbo 4-cylinder engine making 240 horsepower at 5,000 rpm with a maximum torque of 260 lb-ft at 1,250 rpm. No word on performance figures but the new turbo 4-banger offers more power and torque than BMW’s normally aspirated 3.0-liter inline-6 that it replaces in the Z4 sDrive30i.
The new BMW Z4 sDrive28i will arrive in US showrooms this fall.
