The BMW 328 is an extraordinary combination of practicality, sports-car performance and European opulence in a compact package. The automobile defines “sports sedan,” and is the standard by which every luxury car manufacturer aspires to compare when it develops an entry-level luxury sports sedan.
The original 328 was a sports car manufactured by BMW between 1936 and 1940. It was full of advanced features for its time, such as a hemispherical combustion chamber engine and a tubular space frame. It was highly regarded for its handling and performance. BMW brought the 328 back in 2005 and, five years later, the entry-level luxury automobile is full of interior comfort and convenience amenities.
The BMW 328, which competes favorably with the Mercedes C-Class and Infiniti G, seats four in the coupe or retractable-hardtop convertible and five in the sedan. Bavarian Motor Works also manufactures a 328 wagon.
The 328 comes equipped with a 3.0-liter inline-six engine that churns out 230 horsepower. The Environmental Protection Agency’s fuel economy ratings for the BMW 328 are 18 miles-per-gallon in the city and 28 miles-per-gallon on the highway. BMW offers a six-speed manual and six-speed automatic transmission with auto-manual mode on the 2010 328.
The 2010 BMW 328 is full of luxury and safety features, including antilock brakes, side curtain airbags, active front head restraints, side-impact airbags and an electronic stability system designed to improve brake performance. The wagon and sedan received four stars (on a five-star scale) for front collision protection and five stars for side protection in government tests.
BMW 328 drivers value the finer things in life. There’s no secret why the 328 is BMW’s best-selling automobile. The incredible sports car has gained incalculable respect over the years.
