2015 BMW 428 vs. 2015 Chevrolet Volt Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The BMW 428 offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Chevrolet Volt with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. The BMW 428 will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Chevrolet Volt.

Convenience
With the Chevrolet Volt you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the BMW 428, 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). The BMW 428 is somewhat more expensive than the Chevrolet Volt. 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 428 is much higher than that for the Chevrolet Volt.

Dimensions
Since the BMW 428 is much wider than the Chevrolet Volt, 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 Chevrolet Volt.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the BMW 428 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Chevrolet Volt.

Handling
The BMW 428 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 428 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 428 and the Chevrolet Volt.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the BMW 428 than that of the Chevrolet Volt.
