A common feature on many roadsters is the foldable hard top. Instead of the soft top, automakers are now beginning to engineer unique hard tops that fold at the push of a button into the trunk. The new Z4 is one of those cars and it does the job beautifully. Raising and lowering the roof only takes 20 seconds. What the Z4 offers is not only fun in the sun, but also shelter in case the clouds quickly move in and turn that sunshine into scattered showers and thunderstorms.
People who are concerned that a soft top simply won't protect them in harsh weather conditions can be assured that the hard top will ease their fears. As this segment proves to become more popular, the new Z4 truly does offer the best of both worlds.
