The 2014 BMW 328d gets 45 MPG highway and 32 MPG city.

While BMW has yet to release the official numbers, the EPA official website FuelEconomy.gov is showing the mileage ratings for the 2014 BMW 328d. And as expected, the four-cylinder diesel model is quite impressive when it comes to the power-consumption ratio. The 32/45 MPG rating is even better than efficient diesels like the Volkswagen Jetta and Chevrolet Cruze.

BMW’s first four-cylinder diesel for the U.S. market, BMW 328d, is powered by a 2.0 liter four-cylinder turbocharged diesel unit producing 180 horsepower and 280 lb-ft of torque, propelling the vehicle from 0 to 60 mph in about 7.2 seconds.

For 2014, BMW will offer the 328d with optional xDrive all-wheel drive, though that reduces the fuel economy numbers to 31/43 mpg. Beyond that, the BMW will even sell you a 328d xDrive wagon, which nets the same 31/43 mpg rating, according to FuelEconomy.gov.

The price for the 2014 BMW 328d sedan starts at $38,600.
