Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the BMW 230 than the Chevrolet Camaro. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the BMW 230 and the Chevrolet Camaro in the front seats.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the BMW 230 as you will with the Chevrolet Camaro, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

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 230 will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Chevrolet Camaro. 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 230 and the Chevrolet Camaro have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the BMW 230 is much slimmer than the Chevrolet Camaro, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the BMW 230, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Chevrolet Camaro.

Drivetrain
The BMW 230 has much less torque than the Chevrolet Camaro, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the BMW 230 is significantly less powerful than the Chevrolet Camaro. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the BMW 230 and the Chevrolet Camaro. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the BMW 230 will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Chevrolet Camaro.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the BMW 230 than that of the Chevrolet Camaro.
