    Make : BMW
    Model : Z4
    BMW has just launched the Z4 facelift and we are the first to get our hands on it. The facelift is very mild in the form restyled bumpers, new chrome gills within the front flanks, a new alloy wheel design, and a new grille and headlamp design. On the inside, there are subtle updates to the interior trim. 
     
    There are no mechanical changes from the previous BMW Z4, and is powered by the same 3.0-litre, twin-turbo direct-injection motor. Making 302bhp, the motor has a greatthrottle response and the motor feels as smooth and as well-balanced as only a straight-six can. The hard-working seven-speed twin clutch auto is brilliant and in sport mode it keeps the motor in the meant of the powerband and progress is rapid.
     
     
    Acceleration from rest takes you to 100kph in one seamless rush. It takes a scant 6.1 seconds to reach 100kph. Keep the throttle pinned down another four seconds and you’ll be past 140kph! What makes this BMW Z4 engine very usable in everyday driving is the really strong midrange. So driving in traffic or overtaking on the highway is just a touch of the throttle pedal away.

    At Rs 1.85 lakh, the Bajaj Pulsar NS400Z is the most affordable 40hp bike in India. Would you pick it over similarly priced bikes with less power and features?

    Yes, 40hp at this price is unheard of!

    No, it's a decade-old bike in a revamped suit.

    Great value but doesn't look unique enough.
