Comparison Review

Comfort
Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Toyota Supra, the BMW 230 may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the BMW 230 as you will with the Toyota Supra, 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). Based on MSRP, the BMW 230 is clearly a better financial choice over the Toyota Supra. 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 Toyota Supra have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the BMW 230 is much slimmer than the Toyota Supra, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. When looking at overall length, the BMW 230 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Toyota Supra.

Handling
The BMW 230 has a larger turning radius than the Toyota Supra, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

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

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

Utility
The BMW 230 offers greater seating capacity than the Toyota Supra, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the BMW 230 will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Toyota Supra.

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