2014 BMW 3 Series Gran Turismo 328i xDrive 4dr Hatchback AWD (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 8A)


I wanted to replace a Saab 9-5 wagon. The 3 series wagon did not really have the room for me. The X1 and X3 didn't appeal to me. So I was going to get a sedan, and keep the wagon as a station car and junk hauler. My wife and I went to the dealer to buy the sedan and found the 238i GT. We never looked back. No, it is not quite as sharp as the sedan, but I have a convertible for that. It has tons of room, accelerates and handles well, especially in sport of sport plus modes. Bring it down to comfort or eco-pro when just humming along the highway. You can still drop a couple of gears quickly with the paddle shifters. No second thoughts

Best Features

Sport mode. Handling/comfort balance. Interior comfort. Solid feel.

Worst Features

Make more things standard at the starting price. The idea of an all wheel drive car not coming with heated seats standard is just silly and penny pinching. Give the option for no-run flat tires if desired (put in a can of fix a flat like the Boxster).

When in sport mode, will the tranny go into top gear or only 7th gear?

Hi - why did you choose the 328 over the 335? Thanks!
