Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Honda Accord than the BMW 228 Gran Coupe, due to its greater head- and legroom. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Honda Accord, the BMW 228 Gran Coupe may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
With the Honda Accord 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). The BMW 228 Gran Coupe is somewhat more expensive than the Honda Accord. 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 Honda Accord have similar Destination Charges.
