2015 Nissan GT-R vs. 2013 BMW M3 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the BMW M3 than the Nissan GT-R, due to its greater head- and legroom. The Nissan GT-R will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the BMW M3.

Convenience
With the Nissan GT-R 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). The Nissan GT-R will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the BMW M3, 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 Destination Charge for the Nissan GT-R is much higher than that for the BMW M3.

Dimensions
Since the Nissan GT-R is much wider than the BMW M3, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. When looking at overall length, the Nissan GT-R takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the BMW M3.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Nissan GT-R does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the BMW M3.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Nissan GT-R is somewhat more powerful than the BMW M3.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Nissan GT-R and the BMW M3. The Nissan GT-R has significantly less cargo room than the BMW M3, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Nissan GT-R is not as nearly as extensive as that of the BMW M3.
