Comparison Review

Comfort
The BMW M340 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 M340 and the Kia Stinger in the front seats.

Convenience
With the BMW M340 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 M340 will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Kia Stinger, 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. In this case, the BMW M340 will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Kia Stinger.

Dimensions
Since the BMW M340 is much slimmer than the Kia Stinger, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. The BMW M340 is slightly shorter than the Kia Stinger, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the BMW M340 and the Kia Stinger do an equal job of transmitting their engine's power to their wheels.

Handling
The BMW M340 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 M340 is somewhat more powerful than the Kia Stinger.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the BMW M340 and the Kia Stinger. The BMW M340 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 M340 is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Kia Stinger.
