Finally a diesel that matches a gas engine

2014 BMW 3 Series 328d xDrive 4dr Wagon AWD (2.0L 4cyl Turbodiesel 8A)


Got this 3 serie wagon in the fall and have driven about 1,800 miles. The car performs flawlessly. It's fun to drive, taunt and the interior execution is fantastic. At the end of the week I can't help but smile when I realise I get a combined 35 mpg on a week of driving. This little machine will outperform 90% of V6 engines out there (although 0-60 is still a bit slow for my taste).

Best Features

Engine!!! interior is Audi level, enough said. Pandora integration is beautiful if you fork for the technology package. Dynamic Handling option works really well.

Worst Features

The engine drone a bit at highway speed, like a truck (it's faint though). Standard Seats are very flat, you need the sports seats (big mistake there). Harman Kardon radio still falling way short for my taste. Price with the option is way too high although generous lease deal made the package not a bad deal overall
