Comparison Review

Comfort
The BMW 228 Gran Coupe offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the BMW 330 with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the BMW 228 Gran Coupe and the BMW 330 in the front seats.

Convenience
With the BMW 330 you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the BMW 228 Gran Coupe, 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). When looking only at MSRP, the BMW 228 Gran Coupe will have less of an impact on your bank account than the BMW 330. 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 228 Gran Coupe and the BMW 330 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The BMW 228 Gran Coupe is a little narrower than the BMW 330, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. The BMW 228 Gran Coupe is slightly shorter than the BMW 330, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the BMW 228 Gran Coupe doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the BMW 330.

Handling
The BMW 228 Gran Coupe has about the same turning radius as the BMW 330, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The BMW 228 Gran Coupe has less horsepower than the BMW 330, 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 BMW 228 Gran Coupe and the BMW 330. The BMW 228 Gran Coupe has significantly less cargo room than the BMW 330, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

Warranty
The BMW 228 Gran Coupe comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the BMW 330.
