Comparison Review

Comfort
The BMW 430 offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the BMW M240. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the BMW 430 and the BMW M240 in the front seats.

Convenience
With the BMW 430 you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the BMW M240, due to its larger tank size and better fuel economy.

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 430 is somewhat more expensive than the BMW M240. 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 430 and the BMW M240 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the BMW 430 is much wider than the BMW M240, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the BMW 430, which is slightly longer than the BMW M240.

Drivetrain
The BMW 430 has much less torque than the BMW M240, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The BMW 430 has a larger turning radius than the BMW M240, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the BMW 430 is significantly less powerful than the BMW M240. 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 430 and the BMW M240. The BMW 430 has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the BMW M240.

Warranty
The BMW 430 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the BMW M240.
