2016 BMW 328 Gran Turismo vs. 2017 Chevrolet Volt Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the BMW 328 Gran Turismo than the Chevrolet Volt. The BMW 328 Gran Turismo will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Chevrolet Volt.

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). The BMW 328 Gran Turismo will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Chevrolet Volt, which has a much lower MSRP. 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 328 Gran Turismo is much higher than that for the Chevrolet Volt.

Dimensions
The BMW 328 Gran Turismo is a little wider than the Chevrolet Volt, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. If you go with the BMW 328 Gran Turismo, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Chevrolet Volt.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the BMW 328 Gran Turismo does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Chevrolet Volt.

Handling
The BMW 328 Gran Turismo has a larger turning radius than the Chevrolet Volt, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the BMW 328 Gran Turismo has a much more powerful engine than the Chevrolet Volt. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the BMW 328 Gran Turismo and the Chevrolet Volt.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the BMW 328 Gran Turismo than that of the Chevrolet Volt.
