It’s not official from BMW but the EPA’s FuelEconomy.gov website has released some info on the all new to the US 328d variants. We’ve been impressed with the numbers our 120d has achieved and have expected the 328d stateside to impress just as well (basically the same 4 pot oil burner). Our gut instincts were right as the rear-wheel-drive sedan is raking in 32 city MPG and an outstanding 45 mpg highway. Is there a non-hybrid sedan that beats it? We are still looking for one and will update you.
Let’s not forget that this engine is also coming in the wagon, the 328d xDrive wagon comes in at 31/43 mpg rating the same as the all wheel drive sedan. Hitting dealers this fall we can only hope the American buyer antes up and hops into the diesel game.
