Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Audi A8 than the BMW M340. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Audi A8, drivers may find the BMW M340 a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

Convenience
The Audi A8 will require fewer stops at the gas station than the BMW M340, 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 Audi A8 will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the BMW M340, 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 Audi A8 and the BMW M340 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Audi A8 is much wider than the BMW M340, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Audi A8, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the BMW M340.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the Audi A8 and the BMW M340 do an equal job of transmitting their engine's power to their wheels.

Handling
The Audi A8 has a significantly larger turning radius than the BMW M340, making it much more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Audi A8 has less horsepower than the BMW M340, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Audi A8 and the BMW M340. The Audi A8 has significantly less cargo room than the BMW M340, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

Warranty
The Audi A8 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the BMW M340.
