2013 BMW M3 vs. 2015 BMW 435 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The BMW M3 offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the BMW 435 with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. 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 less frequent stops at the gas station than with the BMW M3, 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 M3 will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the BMW 435, which has a much lower MSRP. 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 M3 and the BMW 435 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The BMW M3 is a little narrower than the BMW 435, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. When looking at overall length, the BMW M3 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the BMW 435.

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

Handling
The BMW M3 has a larger turning radius than the BMW 435, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the BMW M3 has a much more powerful engine than the BMW 435. 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 M3 and the BMW 435. The BMW M3 has significantly less cargo room than the BMW 435, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

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