TFLcar reviews the new 2014 BMW 328i xDrive GT.
The 3 Series GT is larger than the standard 3er in all respects. It’s wider, longer by 200 mm, has a stretched wheelbase (by 110 mm) and is taller too. Essentially, this car is its own model that just happens to be called the 3-Series GT.
Coupled with the ZF 8-speed automatic transmission, the 2.0 liter twin-scroll turbo in the 328i GT has a refreshing maturity to it. The powerplant also delivers great fuel economy – 6.4 liters/100 km – although to achieve that you have to do a considerable amount of your driving in Eco mode where the throttle goes leaden and has the engine punching below its weight.
Output on the 2.0 liter turbo is 180 kW / 245 PS (241 bhp) with a torque rating of 350 Nm (258 lb-ft). That provides plenty of heave for this GT, especially with full torque already coming online at 1,250 rpm.
