One of the interesting things to come out of 2012 BMW 3-Series North American debut may not be the handling or the impressive power to the road.



It could be the the surprisingly frugal EPA estimates for new models. Edmund's Inside Line is reporting

"The 2012 BMW 328i with the eight-speed automatic, returned 36 mpg highway on the EPA cycle, 24 mpg city and a combined rating of 28 mpg. This combined rating is better than the highway rating of the 2011 BMW 328i with the 3.0-liter inline-six. That car managed 18/28 with either the 6AT or the 6MT.

When equipped with the six-speed manual, the 2012 BMW 328i scored 23 mpg city, 34 highway and a combined rating of 27 mpg."

Not bad for a brand that traditionally values performance over economy.
