We don’t have a lot of pictures of the resulting model but what we have are quite enough to see its very appealing exterior design. At the first glance, you can see why this roadster is a replacement for the Z4 model. The exterior design of the forthcoming 2018 BMW Z5 is beautiful and some of the highlights are a long hood, a low driving position, short overhangs and a short rear deck. Also, the length is couple inches longer while the width is couple inches wider than in the Z4. One more change compared to its predecessor is a soft top as a replacement for a folding metal roof. Also, at the front, we can notice significantly bigger twin-kidney grille that is now located a little bit lower than before. The headlights and the taillights of this model are powered by the updated LED technology. The front and rear bumpers seem flattered and give the vehicle an almost featureless beltline. The future model will probably come with 18 or 19-inch alloy wheels.

The interior design of the anticipated 2018 BMW Z5 is very elegant and the cabin provides a high dose of comfort. Unfortunately, there is no information about tech features but according to Company; we can expect a lot of high-quality systems inside. The cabin is able to accommodate up to 2 passengers and both seats are covered with the premium leather. Except leather, there are an aluminum and carbon fiber materials inside. The dashboard of the new model will be recognizable dashboard from BMW with big touchscreen display above.
