Comparison Review

Comfort
Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the BMW Z4, the BMW 430 may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
The BMW 430 will require fewer stops at the gas station than the BMW Z4, making it more convenient to drive.

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 Z4. 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 Z4 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The BMW 430 is about the same width as the BMW Z4. If you go with the BMW 430, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the BMW Z4.

Performance
In terms of horsepower, it's basically a tie between the BMW 430 and the BMW Z4.

Powertrain
With similar torque, the BMW 430 and the BMW Z4 do an equal job of transmitting their engine's power to their wheels.

Utility
The BMW 430 offers greater seating capacity than the BMW Z4, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around.

Warranty
The BMW 430 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the BMW Z4.
