Comparison Review

Comfort
The BMW 430 offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the BMW M4 with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the BMW 430 and the BMW M4 in the front seats.

Convenience
With the BMW 430 you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the BMW M4, 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). Based on MSRP, the BMW 430 is clearly a better financial choice over the BMW M4. 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 M4 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the BMW 430 is much slimmer than the BMW M4, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. When looking at overall length, the BMW 430 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the BMW M4.

Drivetrain
The BMW 430 has much less torque than the BMW M4, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The BMW 430 has a smaller turning radius than the BMW M4, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the BMW 430 is significantly less powerful than the BMW M4. 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 M4. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries into the BMW 430 as you will in the BMW M4.

Warranty
The BMW 430 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the BMW M4.
