Fun Vehicle with Outstanding MPG
By ken117 on


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


Picked up a 2014 328d a month ago.
Was in dealership looking at a few models and spotted the 328d.
Took it for a test drive.
Leased one.

Some folks comment negatively on the premium for the 328d over a gas model.
However, on a lease you only pay for about 40 percent of the difference which is likely more than offset by the increased MPG.

My first tank averaged about 42mpg, mixed city and country driving.
Second tank improved to 46 mpg also with mixed driving.
I attribute the difference to driving in the Eco Pro mode with a bit more attention to the mpg.

Vehicle seems very well put together and is a blast to drive.

Best Features

The MPG is my favorite feature. which, coupled with a fun drive, makes the 328d an ideal choice for anyone interested in a nice daily commute with an upscale vehicle with good driving characteristics but with solid mpg. The quality and simpicity of the cabin is a solid plus.

Worst Features

Center console is not very deep and not very useful. There is a small driver side glove box which somewhat compensates.
