2015 BMW 428 vs. 2014 BMW M235 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The BMW 428 offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the BMW M235 with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the BMW 428 and the BMW M235 in the front seats.

Convenience
With the BMW 428 you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the BMW M235, due to its larger tank size and better 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 428 will have less of an impact on your bank account than the BMW M235. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The BMW 428 and the BMW M235 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the BMW 428 is much wider than the BMW M235, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the BMW 428, which is slightly longer than the BMW M235.

Drivetrain
The BMW 428 has much less torque than the BMW M235, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The BMW 428 has a larger turning radius than the BMW M235, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the BMW 428 is significantly less powerful than the BMW M235. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the BMW 428 and the BMW M235. The BMW 428 has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the BMW M235.

Warranty
The BMW 428 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the BMW M235.
