2013 BMW ActiveHybrid 5 vs. 2015 Kia K900 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will feel a little more squished in the BMW ActiveHybrid 5 than in the Kia K900, due to the BMW ActiveHybrid 5's smaller rear head- and legroom. The Kia K900 will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the BMW ActiveHybrid 5.

Convenience
The BMW ActiveHybrid 5 will require fewer stops at the gas station than the Kia K900, making it more convenient to drive.

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 ActiveHybrid 5 is somewhat more expensive than the Kia K900. 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 5 and the Kia K900 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the BMW ActiveHybrid 5 is much slimmer than the Kia K900, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. The BMW ActiveHybrid 5 is slightly shorter than the Kia K900, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
The BMW ActiveHybrid 5 has much less torque than the Kia K900, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The BMW ActiveHybrid 5 has a larger turning radius than the Kia K900, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the BMW ActiveHybrid 5 is significantly less powerful than the Kia K900. 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 ActiveHybrid 5 and the Kia K900. The BMW ActiveHybrid 5 has significantly less cargo room than the Kia K900, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the BMW ActiveHybrid 5 is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Kia K900.
