BMW has confirmed a diesel version of the 3-Series wagon will be offered as a 2014 model year in United States.
Last week we reported BMW's (and Audi's) plans to diversify its diesel lineup in the United States and already we have confirmation about a diesel 3-Series wagon. The 328d xDrive Sports Wagon will reach U.S. dealerships this fall where it will be available as a 2014MY.
Unlike the recently introduced 328d which will be sold in both RWD and AWD flavors, the wagon will be available exclusively in the xDrive all-wheel drive variant. Power will come from the same 4-cylinder, 2.0-liter turbodiesel engine producing 180 bhp (134 kW) and 280 lb-ft (379 Nm) of torque.
The engine will be connected to an 8-speed automatic gearbox which will enable the 328d xDrive Sports Wagon reach 60 mph (96 km/h) in a little over 7 seconds. The car will be capable of returning 32 mpg city / 45 mpg highway / 37 mpg combined.
Diesel-powered 3-Series models will be sold in U.S. in the same trims as their gasoline siblings: Luxury, Sport, Modern and with M Sport Package.
