BMW expanded its 3 Series models for 2014 to include the Sports Wagon. Unlike the 3 Series sedans, the Sports Wagon only comes in two engine choices, a 2-liter four-cylinder in gasoline or diesel. The gasoline version, shown here, is the 2014 BMW 328i xDrive Sports Wagon, which comes standard with all-wheel drive.
