Comparison Review

Comfort
The BMW 540 offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the Kia K900 with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. The Kia K900 will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the BMW 540.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the BMW 540 as you will with the Kia K900, 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). Whether you pick the BMW 540 or the Kia K900, it's going to cost you about the same. 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 540 and the Kia K900 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the BMW 540 is much slimmer than the Kia K900, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. The BMW 540 is slightly shorter than the Kia K900, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the BMW 540 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Kia K900.

Performance
The BMW 540 has less horsepower than the Kia K900, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the BMW 540 and the Kia K900.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the BMW 540 is not as nearly as extensive as that of the Kia K900.
