    2014 BMW 3 Series 328i Sedan Review
    says:
    Only took it for a test drive about 5 miles but it was a very comfortable drive. I wasnt a fan of the economy mode that shuts off the engine at a stop light or stop sign as research indicates this is only saving gas if youre going to be stopped for over a minute but thats a minor complaint. The handling was responsive the engine is quiet and overall its a fun car. The back seat is a bit snug of youre over 6 feet tall though.

    Back Seats Ranked 2014 Mercedes-Benz E-Class E 350 Luxury better.
    "The E350 is longer and roomier than the 328; while the BMWs back seats are fine, if youre over 6 feet tall it will start to wear thin after a few minutes of sitting where the E350 you can settle in for a long road trip without any pressure on your knees."
    Value Ranked 2014 Mercedes-Benz E-Class E 350 Luxury better.
    "I test drove both the E350 and the 328i and while both are fine cars that I would be happy driving, the E350 is just a more powerful car with more features and space. It costs more but the additions just make it more worthwhile if youre going for a luxury sedan."

    Best All Around Car Money Can Buy (maybe A Bit Too Much Money, Though) — After driving my 2010 Jetta Sportwagen for 50,000 miles, I test drove the new 328d that BMW was finally offering in North America. I was looking for an automatic for my daily commute (my Jetta was a manual transmission, and I was getting a bit tired of the stop-and-go), and the 328d was an upgrade on everything that I already loved about the Jetta: AWD, more luxury, better mpg, a great automatic transmission, significantly more fun to drive, much quieter at cruising speeds with an awesome OEM stereo -- I just had to have it. I wouldn't call it the world's best value, at nearly 2x the price of my Jetta and offering only incremental improvements in many ways, but at the end of the day it makes for a cohesive whole with great character that stands up to any comparison with any vehicle. Nothing else on the road provides this kind of driving enjoyment while also offering the utility, space, mpg and luxury of this car. I love getting into it every day...

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Ride, handling, diesel power characteristics, transmission, and luxury and convenience features (iDrive, surround view, folding mirrors, HK stereo), it's a wagon! and it's diesel! and it's AWD! Oh, and active cruise control is awesome

    Cons: Costs about twice what a Jetta Sportwagen does, and offers less cargo space

    Great Car For The Wife To Get Tickets In — I love the power delivery of the inline six cylinder. There is almost zero turbo lag and it feels like an NA car with a larger engine. I would prefer a manual transmission, but the eight speed automatic is very smooth and perceptive for an automatic.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Great looking with the M-Sport Package in Estoril Blue.

    Cons: The handling is a little soft for my taste.

    2014 BMW 3 Series Review
    says:
    A lot of engine issues led me away from this car. I decided I wanted to stay away from any 3 Series with a motor built before 2015 and it just became to difficult to find what I wanted. There is also the issue with the N26 motor and the N20 motor with differing opinions on each. The N26 is the SULEV motor and with all the forementioned variables I just decided it was easier to go with a 2014 MB C250. It has great features and comfort.
