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 M240 than the Ford Mustang. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the BMW M240 and the Ford Mustang 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 Ford Mustang, 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 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 M240 carries a much lower Destination Charge than the Ford Mustang.

Dimensions
Since the BMW M240 is much slimmer than the Ford Mustang, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the BMW M240, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Ford Mustang.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the BMW M240 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Ford Mustang.

Handling
The BMW M240 has a smaller turning radius than the Ford Mustang, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the BMW M240 is significantly less powerful than the Ford Mustang. 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 M240 and the Ford Mustang. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries into the BMW M240 as you will in the Ford Mustang.

Warranty
You'll have greater peace of mind with the more generous basic warranty of the BMW M240 than that of the Ford Mustang.
