BMW showed its new 328d Sedan, which is powered by the automaker’s 2.0L TwinPower diesel four-cylinder engine, at the New York International Auto Show. This engine will be paired with an eight-speed automatic transmission.
Preliminary fuel economy estimates from BMW are 32 mpg city, 45 highway, 37 mpg combined. BMW said its Advanced Diesel technology comes with Selective Catalyst Reduction, helping to make its 328d models clean diesels. BMW said the TwinPower engine is the first four-cylinder diesel model that the company is offering in the U.S.
BMW said the 328d Sedan will be available in rear-wheel-drive and also with the automaker’s XDrive all-wheel-drive system. In addition to the Sedan, BMW said it plans to bring the 328d xDrive Sports Wagon to the U.S. along with the rear-wheel-drive and XDrive versions of the 328d.
The automaker plans to bring these new clean-diesel models to U.S. showrooms in the fall of this year (2013). BMW said it will release detailed specifications and pricing closer to the launch date.
