Finding Out 2016 BMW 328i 0-60 Test Result
The new 2016 BMW 328i 0-60 is going to be released. As part of BMW 3 Series, promises the sporty driving character, improved ride, refined cabin, and a well-rounded package of compact luxury sport design. In general, the 2016 BMW 3 Series offers you the excellent handling and ride balance, powerful engines that are also fuel efficient, and upscale interior with spacious seating and straightforward controls. But unfortunately, just like many issue with the base model, the 320i has only limited feature availability.
Only minor changes are available for the new 2016 BMW 3 Series. They include the mild exterior styling enhancements and interior trim updates, in addition to the smattering of steering and suspension tweaks to improve the handling precision. The updates are added inconspicuously, making only hard fans that will be able to notice the differences. In general, though, considering how mild and minor the updates are, they are not game-changing.
The 2016 BMW 328i is part of the sedan lineup for 3 Series—there are 4 trim levels for sedans: 320i, 328i, 328d, and 340i. All of those trims are offered with all-wheel drive system the BMW calls as “xDrive”. Apart from that, the wagon model is only available in 328i xDrive and 328d xDrive trim levels. The 328i sedan has the more powerful version compared to the 320i’s engine. Apart from that, the trim also features the LED foglights, the Sport Line trim package (with glossy black exterior accents, sport instrumentation, anthracite headliner, and 10-way power adjustable front seats), split folding rear seatbacks, wood trim, driver memory options, power-folding auto-dimming side mirrors with heating, and an auto-dimming rearview mirror.
Under the hood, the more powerful turbocharged 2.0L 4-cylinder powers the 382i. It is capable of producing total output of 240 horsepower and torque of 255 pound-feet. It is the more powerful version compared to 320i’s engine, which is rated at 180 horsepower and torque of 200 pound-feet. The all-wheel drive or xDrive is standard in 3 Series wagons, but optional in sedans. The engine is paired with an 8-speed automatic and may come with a 6-speed manual transmission as optional.
With automatic transmission, the 328i is rated at 27 mpg combined of fuel economy rating. With manual and all-wheel drive, the fuel economy rating drops slightly at 26 mpg combined. The base BMW 328i 0-60 recorded a decent acceleration time of 7.3 seconds, but it can boost to the striking 5.4 seconds for the upscale 328i MP Sport with automatic transmission.
