Post EPA Rates 328d at 45 MPG Hwy / 32 MPG City

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
EPA has released official fuel economy ratings and just saw a billboard on 405, showing the trunk of a black 328d and saying "45 mpg, yes, you read that right".

RWD: 32 City / 45 Highway
AWD: 31 City / 43 Highway


For official info/specs on the 328d, see here.

Here's the link to the EPA info: http://www.fueleconomy.gov/feg/Find....n=sbs&id=34050

Pretty impressive. I was taking a highway cruise last week, and saw 37mpg on my 335xi. Ecopro going 55-60mph, AC on at 65, not bad at all! I'm only wondering what I could achieve with a 328i or 328d

if the 28d is the same engine as in the 20d in europe, it can regularly get up to 64UK mpg/52US mpg highway

Yes, it's the 320d. But EU cycle is pretty different from US one. Anyway, 45 mpg it's not bad at all.

Turbo'd cars are awesome at cruising highway speeds - that MPG gets very high.

I see 328i users getting 40+ when going the speed limit and cruising on highways.

I don't think he's referring to the differences in the methods of calculating the "EU cycle" vs the EPA cycle. I think he's talking about his real world observations.

Just wish it had more power. I guess that's what the 335d will be for though.

Combined should be 38 MPG, based on 55% city and 45% highway...

Not a hit

This car would be a hit if BMW price it right. I believe 320d is less $$$ than 328i in Europe. Why are they the same price in US?
Make it cheaper, and you will sell many of these cars, BMW!!!!!

Very good indeed. Time for VAG to step up the game now, although they don't really compete in this class yet - until the diesel B9 A4 arrives here.

If I could drive a F31 328d MSport home for around $40k I'd be tempted. But at $50k-plus its just too much BMW tax.

There will be no 335d in the US.

EPA always rounds down. 37.9 is 37 by their standards.

Same here. San Diego ---> Palm Springs ---> San Diego, 39mpg average including driving in Palm Springs to dinner, hotel, etc.

Can't wait to see what the 328d is like.

So how long would it take to recoup the extra $2k or so difference in MSRP for the d?

Poeple on this forum always forget that

One imperial gallon is approximately equal to 1.201 U.S. gallons.
One imperial gallon is exactly 4.54609 litres, whereas one U.S. gallon is exactly 3.7854118 liters.

So UK gets higher MPG
stop comparing them
