TDD Exclusive: BMW 328d Video Test Drive and Report
NEW YORK—BMW introduced its first four-cylinder diesel offering for the U.S., the BMW 328d sedan, on the first day of the New York International Auto Show at the Jacob K. Javits Convention Center.
The new BMW 328d gets its power from a turbocharged inline four cylinder engine that develops 180 horsepower and 280 pound-feet of torque. It accelerates from 0 to 60 mph (0-100 km/h) in 7.2 seconds and BMW expects that highway fuel economy will be at least 40 mpg (5.88 l/100 km).
The Diesel Driver sat down with Alanna Bahri, Product Manager 3 Series, 5 Series, X3, X5, X6 and Z4, Victor Leleu, Product Manager, 3 Series and Z4, Dave Buchko, director of BMW Advanced Powertrain & Heritage Communications to discuss the new diesel and then took the new 328d out for a little ride.
