2014 Audi S8 vs. 2015 BMW 640 Gran Coupe Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Audi S8 than the BMW 640 Gran Coupe. The BMW 640 Gran Coupe will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Audi S8.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Audi S8 as you will with the BMW 640 Gran Coupe, 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). The Audi S8 will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the BMW 640 Gran Coupe, which has a much lower MSRP. 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 Audi S8 will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the BMW 640 Gran Coupe.

Dimensions
Since the Audi S8 is much wider than the BMW 640 Gran Coupe, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Audi S8, which is slightly longer than the BMW 640 Gran Coupe.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Audi S8 does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the BMW 640 Gran Coupe.

Handling
The Audi S8 has a larger turning radius than the BMW 640 Gran Coupe, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Audi S8 has a much more powerful engine than the BMW 640 Gran Coupe. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Audi S8 and the BMW 640 Gran Coupe. The Audi S8 has significantly less cargo room than the BMW 640 Gran Coupe, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.
