For example, the research shows that of all BMWs models, the 320d is driven the fastest and over the greatest distances by owners. This information will directly influence work on replacements for the 320d to optimise fuel efficiency in the light of this models particular duty cycle.
This is really interesting! Does it mean that people who buy big engines like the 335d are just poseurs?? What is sure is that I may not be driving very long distances (but still 13,000 miles in just a year) but I am sure that a 320d would not catch up with me!
