Comparison Review

Convenience
With the BMW 440 you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the smart EQ fortwo, due to its tank size and 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). Based on MSRP, the smart EQ fortwo is clearly a better financial choice over the BMW 440. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The smart EQ fortwo carries a much lower Destination Charge than the BMW 440.

Dimensions
Since the smart EQ fortwo is much wider than the BMW 440, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the smart EQ fortwo, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the BMW 440.

Drivetrain
The smart EQ fortwo has much less torque than the BMW 440, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The smart EQ fortwo has a significantly smaller turning radius than the BMW 440, allowing much better maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the smart EQ fortwo is significantly less powerful than the BMW 440. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Utility
The smart EQ fortwo has less seating than the BMW 440, making the BMW 440 the better choice if you need to chauffeur many passengers.

Warranty
The smart EQ fortwo comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the BMW 440.
