It's simply the best, better than all the rest — better than any car, any car put to the test. That's the sentiment Cars.com reviewer Joe Wiesenfelder expressed toward the BMW 328i after its commanding victory in our $46,000 Sport-Sedan Challenge. The 328i's balance of performance and practicality is its greatest asset, boasting excellent acceleration, handling and braking with pack-leading fuel economy and competitive interior comfort. Its turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder and 6.6-second zero-to-60 time prove quickness and efficiency can coexist. An abrupt engine start/stop feature tops Wiesenfelder's short list of criticisms.
