After announcing the partnership in January 2013, both Toyota and BMW have made a breakthrough with the arrival of the stunning Supra and Z4 vehicles. However, the cessation of Z4 development has been the headline of the auto reports. Many are wondering what version will be replacing the former Z4. Finally for over two years under speculation, the new BMW Z5 has made the test mules suggesting that BMW has been working hard to build up the future car. Despite the roadster detailed appearance is still camouflaged, some reports have attempted to explain the changes and upgrades given to the 2018 BMW Z5.

Exterior

Compared to the former Z4, the outer appearance of new Z5 will look sportier and more aggressive. The auto designer has prepared to advance the new platform similar to the Supra chassis. Thus, we might see the completely different outside and architecture. Collected from the leaked pictures, the next BMW Z5 will maintain the typically roadster with a long hood, a short roof and rear deck, and a low driving position with two car seats. Additionally the Z5 will have a longer and wider car dimension as well. Employing a soft top on the roof instead of a hard top will be nicely attentive. In the front end, the bigger twin-kidney grille is embedded to the low fascia to add up the car aggressiveness and agility. The larger headlights connected to the chrome details could also be noticed.

Talking about the interior will be way difficult as the details on it are not known for obvious. Anyhow, some reports unveiled the components for the Z5 entertainment system will be much alike with the 2016 BMW 3 Series. Moreover, the steering wheel looks possessing the larger center hub just resembles the Ford vehicle. Safety features on the security standards will also be installed.

Engine

Under the hood, the engineer might likely inject the engine unit of a turbocharged, four cylinder for the base model. The upper trim level could be powered with a 3.0 liter inline-six with higher power output. Transmission could possibly include the manual and dual-clutch automatic gearboxes to power the all-wheel drive. Several rumors also suggest the 2018 BMW Z5 could be available in the hybrid version but the truth of the information is still doubted.
