About BMW 328i xDrive
As a model in the BMW 3 Series, which is BMW's top seller in the United States market and the successor to the BMW 02 Series, BMW 328i xDrive was built by a famous German manufacturing company, Bayerische Motoren Werke AG, more known under its abbreviation BMW, between 2009 and 2016 as an entry-level luxury car.

The first-generation BMW 328i xDrive (E90) was produced from 2009 to June 2013 when the 3 Series was in its fifth generation.

During this generation, 328i xDrive was powered by a 3.0 L I6 rated at 230 horsepower and 200 pound-feet of torque and this engine sent power through a 6-speed manual shifter and optional 6-speed automatic transmission to four wheels. The more recent 328i xDrive arrived at the 2012 21st Auto Mobil International Leipzig for the 2012 model year. It had an only 5-door wagon (F31).
