2011 BMW 328i Sports Wagon Review by AutoWeek

The BMW 328i Sports Wagon was given a very positive review by the editors of AutoWeek. This vehicle offers sheer driving pleasure while giving enough cargo space for your needs — exactly how an ideal car should be. No wonder it received a stellar commendation. Here is an excerpt from AutoWeek’s review:

Let’s see, here we have one of the best-driving cars on the planet, with cargo room. Talk about a win-win. I didn’t have a need to use the space behind the second row, but there’s no question that everything that makes the 3-series a great car is evident in this configuration: good power from the I6, steady suspension, precise steering, luxury appointments, rakish styling in a classic wagon configuration and solid build quality everywhere.

It’s almost embarrassing to admit it, but my fixes for this car would center on comfort stuff: I’d like a better radio tuner and cupholders that give me confidence that they’ll hold the cup through a 0-to-60-mph run.

COPY EDITOR CYNTHIA L. OROSCO-WRIGHT: This is a fine little wagon, although it seems you have to nearly squat to the ground to get in. Getting out is also a bit of a chore, and I hit my head on two separate occasions–and yes, I did duck.

NEWS EDITOR GREG MIGLIORE: This is a sharp wagon inside and out, enjoyable to drive and with a nice amount of function for a family man. The cupholders are ridiculous, so I’ll get that out of the way immediately. And frankly, they’re a little distracting when you’re trying to prevent spills, even though I couldn’t contain a few rogue drops of coffee.
