BMW has announced pricing for its 2014 3 Series Wagon which will go on sale in America starting this summer.
The 2014 328i xDrive Sport Wagon will be priced from $42,345 including an $895 destination fee putting the wagon at a $2,600 premium over its sedan counterpart. The 328i xDrive Sport Wagon will be powered by the same 2.0-liter, turbocharged inline-four with 240 hp that the sedan features. The powerplant is mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission and will be available only in all-wheel drive form.
As with any other BMW model that’s available on the market, a huge collection of packages and options are available for the 3 Series Wagon shopper. The Luxury Line package adds some chrome to the aesthetics with the kidney grilles, exhaust tip, side window trim, and roof rails getting a bit of shine. 18-inch wheels are available as part of the package as well as a black and chrome key fob. Interior color choices are Saddle Brown, Venetian Beige, or Black Leather.
As for the Modern Line package, the German automaker swaps the shiny chrome out for matte chrome on the kidney grilles and exhaust tip while the side window trims and roof rails are finished in black. Meanwhile in the interior, the Oyster and Black Leather seats are accented with Dark Oyster accents. The key fob also receives a similar Oyster accent treatment. Both those packages are available for $2,300 and includes the $2,200 Premium Package which adds satellite radio, keyless entry and ignition, and leather seats.
Then there’s the $2,600 Sport Package that also features the blacked-out roof rails and window trim, further accented by black kidney grilles and a lowered sport suspension. Five-spoke, 18-inch wheels are included while leather seating is standard with options of black on red, red on black, or black on grey.
The $3,950 M Sport Line package gives buyers the ability to order the automaker’s infamous Estoril Blue paint shade (for an extra $550) and adds sleeker front and rear bumpers, M-branded 18-inch wheels, sport suspension, new steering wheel, and sport bucket seats. It’s worth noting that the M Sport Line package does not include the Premium Package in its pricing.
As for options, a Cold Weather Package can be had for $900 that adds heated front and rear seats and a heated steering wheel. A $1,900 Driver Assistance Package gives blind-spot detection, park sensors, and side/top/rear-view cameras. A $1,000 dynamic handling package outfits the 3-Series Wagon with adaptive dampers and variable sport-tuned steering assist for an extra $1,000. Lastly, navigation can be added on its own for $2,000 or can be part of the $3,000 Technology Package that also adds a heads-up display, enhanced gauge cluster, and telematics services.
BMW did not announce pricing on the diesel-powered 3 Series wagon, which will join the lineup later this year.
