368C0289The BMW 328d will be equipped identically to the gasoline-powered 328i, according to Victor Leleu, the 3 Series’ product manager.

Standard equipment will include keyless start and stop, eight-way power front seats, split fold-down rear seats, HD Radio, iPod and USB support, iDrive cockpit controller, a 6.5” central information display, and rain-sensing wipers.

Options will include the Premium Package, which provides leather seats with lumbar support, a moonroof, Comfort Access, and satellite radio; the Technology Package, which comes with BMW Apps (ranging from Facebook to Tune-in Radio), Navigation, BMW Assist with enhanced Bluetooth, head-up display, real-time traffic, online information services, and smartphone integration; and the Dynamic Handling package adds variable sport steering and an adaptive M suspension.

368C0278Standalone options include numerous driver assistance features including a full-color head-up display that provides a variety of key information in the driver’s line of sight, as well as lane departure warning, active blind spot detection, a rear-view camera with BMW’s Top View functionality providing a bird’s-eye view of the car, and BMW Parking Assistant, which maneuvers the car into a parking spot.  Comfort access not only allows the driver to unlock the car while keeping the key in a pocket but also to open the trunk by moving his foot under the trunk as if pressing a make believe pedal.

Finally, the 328d can be ordered with the Luxury, Sport, Modern, or M Sport Line packages, which add distinctive wheels, trim, and seating options.
