2016 Honda Civic vs. 2016 BMW 328 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Honda Civic offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the BMW 328. The BMW 328 will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Honda Civic.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Honda Civic as you will with the BMW 328, 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). Based on MSRP, the Honda Civic is clearly a better financial choice over the BMW 328. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Honda Civic carries a much lower Destination Charge than the BMW 328.

Dimensions
The Honda Civic is about the same width as the BMW 328. When looking at overall length, the Honda Civic takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the BMW 328.

Drivetrain
The Honda Civic has much less torque than the BMW 328, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Honda Civic has a smaller turning radius than the BMW 328, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Honda Civic is significantly less powerful than the BMW 328. 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 Honda Civic and the BMW 328. The Honda Civic has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the BMW 328.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Honda Civic is not as nearly as extensive as that of the BMW 328.
