apparently the 2014 328d price can start as low as just under $40k, depending how the 2 series diesel is priced, it could be a competitor. If within a $5k price difference it could be a "competitor"
BMW 2 series diesel, 228d, or what ever it ends up being called should offer more than the 328d when you look at price. I bet a 2 series diesel fully loaded with all the things you can possibly have will be as much as a BMW 328d with very few add-on's.
Might in BMW's best interest to not bring a 2series diesel to not kick themselves in the arse, unless they're willing to take the hit and be more diverse.
