BMW expanded its U.S. 3-Series lineup with the addition of a new, diesel-powered version. This model, called the 328d, made its world debut at the 2013 New York International Auto Show on March 27th and hits showrooms in the fall of 2013.
The new 328d sedan is joined by the 328d xDrive Sports Wagon. As with all the other models in the 3 Series lineup, buyers can order the new 328d in Luxury, Sport and Modern Lines, or with the M Sport package.
The 328d comes fitted with a four-cylinder diesel engine and buyers can opt for either rear-wheel drive or BMW’s xDrive all-wheel drive. BMW reports that once the EPA gets around to testing the 328d that it will deliver about 45 mpg. Beyond the diesel engine and a few badges, everything else is shared with the rest of the 3 Series lineup .
Updated 08/01/2013: BMW announced prices for the 2014 328d that will go on sale later this fall at a base price of $38,600.
