The fight begins with the price comparison. Well here none of the models get the bonus points, as their price levels are set at the same level, and on average the invoice price of these two cars is about $43,950. The engine of the new Volkswagen is the 3.6-Liter 280-horsepower V6. While new BMW is a little lower in volume but more powerful, with the core that is 3.0-Liter I6 that is capable of 300-horsepower. With lower volume BMW offers greater fuel economy. In particular is can provide you with 19 mpg in the city and 26 mpg on the highway. New Volkswagen in turn got the 17mpg in the city and 23 mpg on the highway.
