"You know what? My arms are tired. I need a place to put them. A place to rest them, in fact. Those suckers have just been dangling at the ends of my shoulders since birth. It's getting old."

I didn't expect it, but our long-term 2014 BMW 328i Gran Turismo has really grown on me.

2014 BMW 328i xDrive Gran Turismo: Room for People, Dogs and a Piñata

July 08, 2014

The trip requirements were as follows: Room for three people, a small weekend bag each and a whole heap of surprise party stuff. The latter included decorations, food and two boxes of booze — for the 15-plus attendees, not just the three in the car. Any number of our Edmunds long-term cars could get the job done, but as the journey would take us up into the mountains around Lake Arrowhead, California, a car of some athleticism was preferred.

If that doesn't call for our 2014 BMW 328i xDrive Gran Turismo I'm not sure what does. It's certainly more spacious and practical than our new Porsche Macan.

2014 BMW 328i xDrive Gran Turismo: Plenty of Legroom, but Headroom Can Be Tight

Part of the appeal of the 2014 BMW 328i xDrive Gran Turismo is its longer wheelbase and body than the regular 3 Series sedan and wagon. BMW has put that extra length to use for expanding the amount of rear legroom and cargo space.

If you're an adult seated in back, you'll probably be impressed by the amount of space you have to stretch out your legs. It's excellent for any entry-level luxury car. At the same time, however, you could be disappointed in the amount of headroom the 3 GT has.

2014 BMW 328i xDrive Gran Turismo: Cruise Control Counterpoint

April 23, 2014

I feel compelled to add a "yeah, but" regarding the cruise control system in our long-term 2014 BMW 328i xDrive Gran Turismo. Dan Edmunds reckons that its cruise control is pretty dandy; nay, the best ever.

I agree with Dan regarding the aspects of its effectiveness he identified. These are calibration-related performance factors, and in this regard the system is very good. However, the system's ergonomics fall short of many other automakers' systems...and even BMW's own previous efforts.
