The efficient compact sedan debuted at the 2013 New York International Auto Show.

A diesel version of the 3-Series sedan has been on sale in Europe for some time as the BMW 320d. The BMW 328d will be sold in the United States with more or less the same equipment. Both vehicles sport a turbocharged 2.0L four-cylinder that generates 180 hp and a thoroughly impressive 280 lb-ft of torque. Based on measurements by BMW, the sedan should be able to hit 60 mph from standstill in only 7.2 seconds.
The BMW 328d will be equipped with an eight-speed automatic transmission. The 2014 BMW 328d should be available by July or August of this year.
At the New York Auto Show, BMW also pulled the cover off several other vehicles. One is the new 3-Series Gran Turismo, a hatchback variant, and another was a plug-in hybrid called the Active Tourer Concept. The 3-Series Gran Turismo will probably make its debut as a production model in the United States next year.
To find out how to be the first to drive the new BMW 328d, interested Chicagoland drivers should contact Motor Werks BMW. The dealership is located at 1475 S Barrington Rd (http://www.motorwerksbmwbarrington.com/
