Front-Wheel Drive BMW Z2 to Arrive in 2016?
According to Auto Express, a Z2 model about the size of the old Z3, but with front-wheel drive, “started to make financial sense” over at BMW. It seems that the Germans are looking to develop such a vehicle on their new modular UKL1 platform that underpins the new 2014 MINI.
Interestingly enough, the report adds that the front-wheel drive Z2 could be powered by BMW i3’s turbocharged 1.5-liter three-cylinder engine and a number of 2.0-liter petrol and diesel four-potters, with the range-topping version to deliver almost 300 bhp. Our source claims the 2016 BMW Z2 will arrive with a starting price of £20,000. Guess we’ll just have to see about that...
