Comparison Review

Comfort
The BMW 228 Gran Coupe offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Hyundai Sonata with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. The Hyundai Sonata will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the BMW 228 Gran Coupe.

Convenience
With the Hyundai Sonata 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 Hyundai Sonata. 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 Hyundai Sonata have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the BMW 228 Gran Coupe is much slimmer than the Hyundai Sonata, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the BMW 228 Gran Coupe, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Hyundai Sonata.

Handling
The BMW 228 Gran Coupe has a larger turning radius than the Hyundai Sonata, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Utility
