Safety

The GT-R has standard head airbag curtains which act as a forgiving barrier between the driver and front passenger's upper bodies and the window and pillars. Combined with high-strength steel door beams and lower side airbags this system increases head protection in broadside collisions. The Chiron doesn't offer side airbag protection for the head.

Both the GT-R and the Chiron have standard driver and passenger frontal airbags, front side-impact airbags, four-wheel antilock brakes, all wheel drive, traction control, electronic stability systems to prevent skidding and daytime running lights.

Warranty

There are almost 91 times as many Nissan dealers as there are Bugatti dealers, which makes it much easier should you ever need service under the GT-R’s warranty.

Fuel Economy and Range

On the EPA test cycle the GT-R gets better fuel mileage than the Chiron (16 city/22 hwy vs. 9 city/14 hwy).

Tires and Wheels

Changing a flat tire near traffic can be dangerous and inconvenient. The run-flat tires standard on the GT-R can be driven up to 50 miles without any air pressure, allowing you to drive to a service station for a repair. The Chiron doesn’t offer run-flat tires.

Suspension and Handling

For a smoother ride and more stable handling, the GT-R’s wheelbase is 2.7 inches longer than on the Chiron (109.4 inches vs. 106.7 inches).

Chassis

The Nissan GT-R may be more efficient, handle and accelerate better because it weighs about 450 to 500 pounds less than the Bugatti Chiron.

The GT-R is 5.6 inches narrower than the Chiron, making the GT-R easier to handle and maneuver in traffic.

The design of the Nissan GT-R amounts to more than styling. The GT-R has an aerodynamic coefficient of drag of .26 Cd. That is significantly lower than the Chiron (.36). A more efficient exterior helps the GT-R go faster and keeps the interior quieter. It also helps the GT-R get better fuel mileage.

The GT-R uses computer-generated active noise cancellation to help remove annoying noise and vibration from the passenger compartment, especially at low frequencies. The Chiron doesn’t offer active noise cancellation.

Passenger Space

The GT-R has standard seating for 4 passengers; the Chiron can only carry 2.

The GT-R has 25 cubic feet more passenger volume than the Chiron (79 vs. 54).

Cargo Capacity

The GT-R has a much larger trunk than the Chiron (8.8 vs. 2 cubic feet).

Ergonomics

The GT-R’s standard dual zone air conditioning allows the driver and front passenger to choose two completely different temperatures so people with different temperature preferences won’t have to compromise. This makes both the driver and front passenger as comfortable as possible. The Chiron doesn’t offer dual zone air conditioning.

The GT-R’s standard steering wheel mounted cruise control is close at hand. The Chiron’s standard cruise control is on an over-crowded turn signal stalk.
