As Destin Raybun reported here last week, the folks at BMW are currently displaying their newest 3-Series models at the 2013 New York International Auto Show. Open to the public today and running through April 7, you can check out the return of some highly anticipated models displaying the blue and white roundel, particularly of the oil-burning variety. That’s right — the new BMW 3-Series diesels are here.
In this photo gallery, we illustrate the differences between the 328i and the 2014 BMW 328d sedan (yup, that would be the engine, badging and fuel port). Oh and in case you’re wondering, the inside looks the same as an unleaded gas 328i.
Here’s BMW’s take on their small diesel: “BMW 320d EfficientDynamics Edition – only 109 g/km of CO2.
The 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine with BMW TwinPower Turbo technology originates from the same family as the BMW 320d and has the common features of a fully aluminium crankcase, a turbocharger with variable turbine geometry and the latest generation of common-rail direct injection.”
Combined: 4.1 l/100 km
Urban: 5.2 to 5.0 l/100 km
Extra-urban: 3.6 to 3.5 l/100 km
CO2 emissions combined: 109 g/km
The figures for fuel consumption and CO2 emissions depend on the wheel and tyre sizes selected.
Further information about the official fuel consumption and the official specific CO2 emissions for new passenger automobiles can be found in the ‘New Passenger Vehicle Fuel Consumption and CO2 Emission Guidelines’, which are available free of charge at all sales outlets and from DAT Deutsche Automobil Treuhand GmbH, Hellmuth-Hirth-Str. 1, 73760 Ostfildern, Germany.” – - BMW.com
