BMW Serie 3 Diesel Touring, the test of actual consumption – Motor1 France

Our 'real consumption test' section is now so rich in testing that even the BMW 320d Touring and its excellent fuel consumption 4.00 l / 100 km (25 km / l) fails to score the record in its category.

With a very low cost of € 20.87 to travel 360 km between Rome and Forli, the new BMW 3 Series Touring and its 190 hp diesel engine is in fact one of the least fuel-efficient family cars. However, some family do better, let's see which ones.

The less greedy breaks

In our fuel consumption ranking between Rome and Forlì, the 4.00 l / 100 km of the BMW 320d Touring are at the top of the ranking. Higher still, we find the Peugeot 508 BlueHDi 130 and Opel Insignia Sports Tourer 1.6 CDTi 136 hp that do better with only 3.80 l / 100 km (26.3 km / l). Of course, these models are less powerful and are not premiums, but their size is equivalent, so they are vehicles of the same segment.

The undisputed queen is the Mercedes E220 d Break which only consumes 3.60 l / 100 km (27.7 km / l), while behind the BMW, there is the Volvo V60 D4 Geartronic with its 4.35 l / 100 km (22.9 km / l).
