EPA through its FuelEconomy.gov website has released fuel economy numbers for the 2014 U.S.-spec BMW 328d lineup.

BMW hasn't published mileage figures for the 328d but EPA says it will do 32 mpg city and 45 mpg highway, resulting in 37 mpg for the combined cycle. These figures are applicable for the rear-wheel drive model, while the xDrive variant does 31 mpg city / 43 mpg hwy / 35 mpg combined. BMW is offering the 328d in an xDrive Sports Wagon version which will return the same mileage as the all-wheel drive sedan.

Set to reach dealerships this fall, the 2014 BMW 328d is powered by a 2.0-liter, 4-cylinder turbodiesel engine delivering 181 bhp (135 kW) at 4,000 rpm and 280 lb-ft (379 Nm) of torque between 1,750 and 2,750 rpm. Power is transferred to the rear axle or all wheels through an eight-speed automatic transmission.

Rear-wheel drive sedan starts at 38,600 USD, while the xDrive version will set you back at least 40,600 USD. The 328d Sports Wagon is available exclusively in the xDrive version from 42,950 USD.
