Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Toyota Avalon than the BMW 330, due to its greater head- and legroom. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Toyota Avalon, the BMW 330 may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
The BMW 330 will require fewer stops at the gas station than the Toyota Avalon, making it more convenient to drive.

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 330 is somewhat more expensive than the Toyota Avalon. 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 330 and the Toyota Avalon have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The BMW 330 is a little narrower than the Toyota Avalon, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. If you go with the BMW 330, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Toyota Avalon.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the BMW 330 transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Toyota Avalon.

Handling
The BMW 330 has a smaller turning radius than the Toyota Avalon, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

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

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the BMW 330 and the Toyota Avalon. The BMW 330 has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Toyota Avalon.

Warranty
