Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the BMW 430 than the Ford Mustang. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the BMW 430 and the Ford Mustang in the front seats.

Convenience
The BMW 430 will require fewer stops at the gas station than the Ford Mustang, 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 will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Ford Mustang, which has a much lower MSRP. 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 carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Ford Mustang.

Dimensions
Since the BMW 430 is much slimmer than the Ford Mustang, 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 Ford Mustang.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the BMW 430 is significantly less powerful than the Ford Mustang. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Powertrain
With its lower torque, the BMW 430 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Ford Mustang.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the BMW 430 and the Ford Mustang.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the BMW 430 than that of the Ford Mustang.
