Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Volkswagen Arteon than the BMW 330, due to its greater head- and legroom. The BMW 330 will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Volkswagen Arteon.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the BMW 330 as you will with the Volkswagen Arteon, 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). Whether you pick the BMW 330 or the Volkswagen Arteon, it's going to cost you about the same. 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 carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Volkswagen Arteon.

Dimensions
Since the BMW 330 is much slimmer than the Volkswagen Arteon, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. The BMW 330 is slightly shorter than the Volkswagen Arteon, which may make it easier to park.

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

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

Performance
The BMW 330 has less horsepower than the Volkswagen Arteon, 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 Volkswagen Arteon. The BMW 330 has significantly less cargo room than the Volkswagen Arteon, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

Warranty
