2014 BMW 328 Gran Turismo vs. 2014 Nissan 370Z Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
The BMW 328 Gran Turismo will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Nissan 370Z.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the BMW 328 Gran Turismo as you will with the Nissan 370Z, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

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 is somewhat more expensive 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 328 Gran Turismo is much higher than that for the Nissan 370Z.

Dimensions

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the BMW 328 Gran Turismo doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Nissan 370Z.

Handling
The BMW 328 Gran Turismo has a significantly larger turning radius than the Nissan 370Z, making it much more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the BMW 328 Gran Turismo 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
People who frequently chauffeur around a lot of people will appreciate the BMW 328 Gran Turismo more than the Nissan 370Z, due to its significantly greater seating capacity. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the BMW 328 Gran Turismo will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Nissan 370Z.
