Comparison Review

Comfort
The BMW 330 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 330 and the Kia Stinger in the front seats.

Convenience
With the BMW 330 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). When looking only at MSRP, the BMW 330 will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Kia Stinger. 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 330 will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Kia Stinger.

Dimensions
Since the BMW 330 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 330 is slightly shorter than the Kia Stinger, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
The BMW 330 has much less torque than the Kia Stinger, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The BMW 330 has a smaller turning radius than the Kia Stinger, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the BMW 330 is significantly less powerful than the Kia Stinger. 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 330 and the Kia Stinger. The BMW 330 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 330 is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Kia Stinger.
