Comparison Review

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

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 330e is somewhat more expensive than the Volkswagen Arteon. 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 330e and the Volkswagen Arteon have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the BMW 330e 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 330e is slightly shorter than the Volkswagen Arteon, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the BMW 330e doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Volkswagen Arteon.

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

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the BMW 330e is significantly less powerful than the Volkswagen Arteon. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the BMW 330e and the Volkswagen Arteon. The BMW 330e has significantly less cargo room than the Volkswagen Arteon, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the BMW 330e is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Volkswagen Arteon.
