2013 BMW 128 vs. 2014 Nissan 370Z Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
The Nissan 370Z will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the BMW 128.

Convenience
With the Nissan 370Z you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the BMW 128, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). When looking only at MSRP, the BMW 128 will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Nissan 370Z. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Destination Charge for the BMW 128 is much higher than that for the Nissan 370Z.

Dimensions
Since the BMW 128 is much slimmer than the Nissan 370Z, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the BMW 128, which is slightly longer than the Nissan 370Z.

Drivetrain
The BMW 128 has much less torque than the Nissan 370Z, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The BMW 128 has a larger turning radius than the Nissan 370Z, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the BMW 128 is significantly less powerful than the Nissan 370Z. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Utility
The BMW 128 offers greater seating capacity than the Nissan 370Z, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the BMW 128 will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Nissan 370Z.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the BMW 128 than that of the Nissan 370Z.
