Comparison Review

Comfort
The BMW 530 offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Kia Stinger with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the BMW 530 and the Kia Stinger in the front seats.

Convenience
With the BMW 530 you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Kia Stinger, 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 530 is somewhat more expensive than the Kia Stinger. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. In this case, the BMW 530 will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Kia Stinger.

Dimensions
The BMW 530 is about the same width as the Kia Stinger. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the BMW 530, which is slightly longer than the Kia Stinger.

Drivetrain
The BMW 530 has much less torque than the Kia Stinger, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The BMW 530 has a larger turning radius than the Kia Stinger, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the BMW 530 is significantly less powerful than the Kia Stinger. 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 530 and the Kia Stinger. The BMW 530 has significantly less cargo room than the Kia Stinger, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the BMW 530 is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Kia Stinger.
