2015 BMW 435 vs. 2013 BMW M3 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will feel a little more squished in the BMW 435 than in the BMW M3, due to the BMW 435's smaller rear head- and legroom. The BMW 435 will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the BMW M3.

Convenience
With the BMW 435 you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the BMW M3, 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). Based on MSRP, the BMW 435 is clearly a better financial choice over the BMW M3. 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 435 and the BMW M3 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The BMW 435 is a little wider than the BMW M3, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. When looking at overall length, the BMW 435 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the BMW M3.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the BMW 435 and the BMW M3 do an equal job of transmitting their engine's power to their wheels.

Handling
The BMW 435 has a smaller turning radius than the BMW M3, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the BMW 435 is significantly less powerful than the BMW M3. 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 435 and the BMW M3. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the BMW 435 will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the BMW M3.

Warranty
The BMW 435 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the BMW M3.
