The interior of the Z4 like its seats, door panels, kneepads and arm rests are all made of leather.

Getting in and out of the Z4 may be a problem for tall drivers or passengers as one might have to bend to get in or out of the cars. Having said that, the seats are comfortable once seated inside and one can go for long drives unhindered. There’s plenty of room for storage with or without lowering the roadsters top. The capacity of storage remains the same at 9 cubic feet. Though the boot capacity is large, capacity to keep small things is not great. There are pockets to store these knick knacks but one will have to move in his seat to get to these spaces.

The 2010 BMW Z4 has all the safety features that one comes to expect from the house of BMW. It has been provided with airbags that are dual in nature, airbags to protect if the car is hit from the side and safety bags to protect the knees of the driver and passenger of the car.
