I would get a pre-inspection done on both cars by a mechanic. If there are any issues with either, the inspection should help identify them.

As to which cost more to maintain, I really don't know. You could call a shop and ask what the cost is for a 60K service on each vehicle. If they are the same, the service cost should be about the same, if one is much higher, then it's parts are probably more expensive and will typically cost more throughout it's life.
