New York auto show: 5 redesigned sedans
2014 BMW 328d
BMW is bringing a diesel version of its 3 Series to U.S. soil, marking the first time it offers a diesel four-cylinder in the U.S. Introduced at the New York auto show, the 2014 BMW 328d is powered by a 180-horsepower 2-liter clean diesel engine and is paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission.
BMW says that the 328d will travel from zero to 60 miles per hour in just more than seven seconds and will get 45 miles per gallon on the highway. BMW's sedans will be available in either rear-wheel drive or all-wheel drive, while a sport wagon will be offered only with all-wheel drive. Three option levels will be offered as well as an M Sport version, designating BMW's high performance line. BMW did not offer a list of standard equipment at press time but said that it would be comparable to the gasoline 328i model. The 2014 BMW 328d will go on sale this fall.
