The BMW 328d has been named a finalist for the Green Car Journal Green Car of the Year Award. Every year, the Green Car Journal picks a vehicle that has done an outstanding job of expanding efforts in providing a clean eco-friendly ride.
The BMW 328d will have four other competitors: The Mazda3, Toyota Corolla, Honda Accord and the Audi A6.
The Green Car Journal gave the 3 Series high praise saying “Featuring the first 4-cylinder BMW diesel engine in the U.S., the new 328d combines exceptionally high fuel efficiency with the performance expected of BMW models. EPA estimated 45 mpg highway fuel economy is achieved with this sedan’s 2.0-liter TwinPower clean diesel powerplant, which produces 180 horsepower and 280 lb-ft torque. Efficiency is enhanced with engine auto start-stop and brake energy regeneration. A 328d Sports Wagon is also available. The models are offered in rear wheel drive or with BMW’s xDrive all-wheel drive system.”
The winner of Green Car of the Year will be announce at the LA Auto Show at the end of the year. For more information on all things BMW, visit Union Park BMW online at www.unionparkbmw.com.
