If you have never considered purchasing a diesel model car before, would 43 miles per gallon highway fuel efficiency grab your attention? This is just what the new 2014 BMW 328d model is offering, with a 32 mile per gallon city fuel efficiency. You just cannot find these figures with a standard gasoline model. Perhaps it is the great fuel efficiency numbers or the mere look of the new 328d that is getting attention from auto enthusiast around the country.

BMW did away with its typical 6-cylinder model when it create the 328d’s 2.0-liter twin turbo 4-cylinder engine with an 8-speed transmission and BMW’s famous xDrive all-wheel drive. This provides the car with 181 horsepower with a 280 lb/ft of torque. This may not be the fastest car on the market, as it takes 7.2 seconds to go from zero to 60 miles per hour. However, what it is lacking in speed it more than makes up for in other features, such as the ability to travel over 600 miles with just one tank of gas.
The new 328d looks great and very sporty for a full-size sedan. The angular headlights, split grill depicting the BMW logo in the center, and the 19-inch wheels make this a great-looking four-door family sedan. The interior is very spacious and even the backseat passengers have plenty of room to stretch out. One of the best features of the new 2014 BMW 328d is the large cargo space in the trunk, which can be made bigger by laying down the rear flip-down seats.
The optional leather seats and wood interior trim help to move this model up a notch in luxury. It comes with heated front seats that are fully adjustable to achieve premium comfort. The three-spoke multifunctional steering wheel allows the driver to change entertainment and climate controls instantly with the push of a button. The car also include dual climate control zones, dynamic cruise control, and an anti-theft system.

This system also includes a USB port and is Bluetooth compatible. It includes a Harman Kardon surround sound system and can be connected to Sirius XM satellite radio.
When it comes to fuel efficiency, this car is no doubt one of the best models on the market. It has the great performance, spacious interior, nice design, and an affordable price, especially for a luxury model.
