2013 BMW ActiveHybrid 3 vs. 2013 Infiniti M35h Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will feel a little more squished in the BMW ActiveHybrid 3 than in the Infiniti M35h, due to the BMW ActiveHybrid 3's smaller rear head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the BMW ActiveHybrid 3 and the Infiniti M35h in the front seats.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the BMW ActiveHybrid 3 as you will with the Infiniti M35h, 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). When looking only at MSRP, the BMW ActiveHybrid 3 will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Infiniti M35h. 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 ActiveHybrid 3 and the Infiniti M35h have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The BMW ActiveHybrid 3 is a little narrower than the Infiniti M35h, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. If you go with the BMW ActiveHybrid 3, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Infiniti M35h.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the BMW ActiveHybrid 3 transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Infiniti M35h.

Handling
The BMW ActiveHybrid 3 has about the same turning radius as the Infiniti M35h, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of horsepower, it's basically a tie between the BMW ActiveHybrid 3 and the Infiniti M35h.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the BMW ActiveHybrid 3 and the Infiniti M35h. The BMW ActiveHybrid 3 has less cargo capacity than the Infiniti M35h, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The Infiniti M35h offers a little more coverage in its basic warranty than the BMW ActiveHybrid 3.
