Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Toyota Avalon Hybrid than the BMW 330, due to its greater head- and legroom. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Toyota Avalon Hybrid, the BMW 330 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 330 as you will with the Toyota Avalon Hybrid, 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). The BMW 330 is somewhat more expensive than the Toyota Avalon Hybrid. 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 Hybrid have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The BMW 330 is a little narrower than the Toyota Avalon Hybrid, 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 Hybrid.

Handling
The BMW 330 has a significantly larger turning radius than the Toyota Avalon Hybrid, making it much more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the BMW 330 has a much more powerful engine than the Toyota Avalon Hybrid. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Powertrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the BMW 330 does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Toyota Avalon Hybrid.

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 Hybrid.

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