2016 BMW 328 vs. 2016 BMW 328d Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The BMW 328 offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the BMW 328d with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the BMW 328 and the BMW 328d in the front seats.

Convenience
The BMW 328d requires fewer visits to the gas station than the BMW 328, making it more convenient to drive.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). When looking only at MSRP, the BMW 328 will have less of an impact on your bank account than the BMW 328d. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The BMW 328 and the BMW 328d have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The BMW 328 is about the same width as the BMW 328d. When looking at overall length, the BMW 328 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the BMW 328d.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the BMW 328 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the BMW 328d.

Handling
The BMW 328 has about the same turning radius as the BMW 328d, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the BMW 328 has a much more powerful engine than the BMW 328d. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the BMW 328 and the BMW 328d. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries into the BMW 328 as you will in the BMW 328d.

Warranty
The BMW 328 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the BMW 328d.
