Comparison Review

Convenience
With the BMW M4 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 M4. 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 M4.

Dimensions
The smart EQ fortwo is a little wider than the BMW M4, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. 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 M4.

Drivetrain
The smart EQ fortwo has much less torque than the BMW M4, 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 M4, 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 M4. 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 M4, making the BMW M4 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 M4.
