The 2014 BMW 328i xDrive Sport Wagon costs $42,345 (including $895 in destination fees), according to the “Build Your Own” section on BMW USA’s consumer Web site. It costs an additional $2600 (over the price of a 2013 328i xDrive sedan that’s similarly equipped) to get an extended roof, an additional pair of pillars, and a big (17.5 cubic feet) cargo compartment.
Just like its sedan sibling, the 2014 328i xDrive Sport Wagon is powered by a 240-hp turbocharged 2.0-liter I-4, a standard eight-speed automatic transmission, and all-wheel drive. For now, the 3 Series Sport Wagon is offered in 328i xDrive form. The lineup will get a diesel-powered 328d xDrive Sport Wagon later this year. However, the price has yet to be revealed.
Just like other 2013 3 Series sedans, the new 2013 328i xDrive Sport Wagon is available with BMW’s Design Line packages, which combine content with distinct styling features. For example, choosing the Luxury line means that you get the chrome kidney grille bars and a matching exhaust tip, together with chromed side window trim and roof rails. The package includes a set of 18-inch multi-spoke aluminum wheels, a black and chrome key fob, and a choice from saddle brown, Venetian beige, or black leather seating surfaces.
This line shares some features with the Modern Line package. However, the Modest Line features matte chrome on the grille bars and exhaust tip, and paints both the wide window trims and roof rails in black. Offered as standard are a set of 18-inch, turbine-inspired wheels. The oyster and black leather seats have dark oyster highlights, while the key fob gets a matching oyster touch.
The Modern and Luxury Line packages each cost $2300, and integrate the $2200 Premium Package, which comes with satellite radio, keyless entry and ignition, and leather seating. The Sport Package for the 2014 328i xDrive Sport Wagon costs $2600.
This package keeps the Modern Line’s blacked-out roof rails and window trim, and gives it some matching kidney grille bars. A lowered sport suspension and 18-inch five-spoke wheels are offered as standard equipment. The leather seating is standard but buyers can choose from any of the black-on-red, red-on-black, or black-on-grey two-tone schemes.
