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 330 than the Nissan Maxima. The Nissan Maxima will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the BMW 330.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the BMW 330 as you will with the Nissan Maxima, 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 330 will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Nissan Maxima.

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

Performance
The BMW 330 has less horsepower than the Nissan Maxima, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Powertrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the BMW 330 transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Nissan Maxima.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the BMW 330 and the Nissan Maxima.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the BMW 330 than that of the Nissan Maxima.
