Woodcliff Lake, N.J. - January 15, 2014 …
The 2014 BMW 328i has been selected as the winner of the Cars.Com Lifestyle Award as the Luxury Car of the Year. The BMW 328i is the perfect blend of luxury, sport and prestige. Cars.com tested it against the industry's best luxury sport sedans in 2013 and it came out on top, beating its competitors.
According to Cars.com “It does everything well. It has strong acceleration from the turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine; has progressive, fade-free brakes; and sharp, nimble handling. It's quick: zero to 60 mph in just 6.5 seconds. It's frugal: Observed gas mileage in our testing rang in at 28.1 mpg combined city/highway. The list of equipment, both standard and optional, is quite complete”.
The award was received by Paul Ferraiolo, BMW Product Planning and Strategy Manager. Paul expressed his gratitude to Cars.com for recognizing the passion that everybody at BMW and its dealers share for the Ultimate Driving Machine.
