2014 BMW 328i xDrive Gran Turismo: Fuel Economy Update for May

June 5, 2014

2014 BMW 328i xDrive Gran Turismo

With just over 11,000 miles now on the clock, our 2014 BMW 328i xDrive Gran Turismo has racked up another 3,000 miles in the month of May. The best mpg, worst mpg and best range numbers all stood pat, while the average mpg nearly did. The latter dropped a mere tenth of an mpg.

So we're still averaging about two mpg less than the EPA's combined number. But as noted in the last update, this all-wheel-drive sport hatchback managed 27 mpg overall on Edmunds' 116-mile, mixed-driving evaluation loop.

Worst Fill MPG: 14.9
Best Fill MPG: 33.2
Average Lifetime MPG: 23.9  
EPA MPG Rating: 26 Combined (22 City / 33 Highway)
Best Range: 497.1
Current Odometer: 11,147

    This car is doing pretty well in this regard. Nobody has ever cross-shopped the two but check out the numbers from your long term Subaru Impreza. That car was smaller, lighter, slower and less fun to drive. And it only netted 2 mpg higher. Subaru has gotten better at getting efficiency out of AWD cars but BMW seems to do it much better.

    ~11K miles in 8 months and getting ~26 mpg (i.e. right at EPA spec), with minimal use of Eco Mode. A great road car!
