Comparison Review

Comfort
The BMW M240 offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the BMW 230 with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the BMW M240 and the BMW 230 in the front seats.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the BMW M240 as you will with the BMW 230, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

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 M240 will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the BMW 230, 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 M240 and the BMW 230 have similar Destination Charges.
