Checking Out The Features New BMW Car Model 328d Xdrive Sedan

The latest Model in 2014, Bayerische Motoren Werke AG, Bavarian Motor Works in English is popularly recognized as BMW in the automobile sector. BMW is a German automobile brand, which is into the vehicle and engine manufacturing from 1916 onwards. The company is headquartered in Munich, Germany. The latest BMW model 328d xDrive Sedan is now on the roads, which makes the brand a strong competitor in this sector.


The BMW corporation headquartered in Germany is offering Rolls-Royce motor cars under its parent company, mini cards, and motorcycles under the brand BMW Motorrad. In year 2012, the BMW Group had a record production of about 1,845,186 automobiles and 117,109 motorcycles. BMW is now one among the "German Big 3" luxury automakers with Audi and Mercedes-Benz.

BMW is now renowned worldwide with production units across the world in many countries. With a big network of sales and service dealers, BMW is now synonymous with quality and luxury. Making small cars to the most luxurious vehicles, BMW is worth to be called the No.1 in many aspects in the club of world’s best selling automobiles.

With all the carmakers globally are facing the need to be compliant with a lot of mandates in terms of emission and fuel-economy along with downsizing and electrification, all are in the run for garnering more specific attention to detail. Last time, BMW was trying to mix oil and rubber in the U. S. -market car in the E90 335d released in 2009. It was then possessing a fancy of enabling a 5.7-second run to reach 60, but the 3.0-liter six was not very catching in terms of EPA mileage, which was 23 mpg city and 36 mpg highway.

The 328d xDrive stretches, from bumper to bumper, as long as that of the Volkswagen Jetta, however weighs about 400 pounds more. However, the gap shrinks to about 205 pounds with a rear - drive version of the same. Instead of the 335d six, the 328d consist of a 2.0-L four-cylinder engine, which is capable of offering fuel economy and performance ration when compared to the former. The estimated EPA is of 31/43 for the xDrive version and 32/45 for the rear drive. These stats can actually exceed that of the Jetta TDI’s 30/42 figures. As per the trial run, the count was 35 mpg over a course of 874 miles.

The down side is that 328d’s 181 HP can barely exceed the power of the 180-HP gas-powered turbo four-cylinder at the entry level 320i. It achieves 60 mph in about 7.2 sec and 328d xDrive is found to be as quick as in 60 as in the rear drive Cadillac ATS. However, this is still 0.7 second slower that the real-wheel drive 320i.

However, the 328d will not be felt that slow. The ample low-ample torque of 328d, which is 280 lb-ft at 1750 RPM and the strong part-throttle response is well combined to suite to the way most of the people drive 99% of the times. The twin-scroll turbo of this diesel model can deliver a seamless response. The steering of 328d’s is very obedient and also overboosted to offer high performance. With 328d, BMW surely steps too farther to the previous generation 335d.
