2014 Audi S8 vs. 2015 BMW 650 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 650 Gran Coupe. The BMW 650 Gran Coupe will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Audi S8.

Convenience
With the Audi S8 you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the BMW 650 Gran Coupe, due to its larger tank size and better fuel economy.

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 650 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 650 Gran Coupe.

Dimensions
Since the Audi S8 is much wider than the BMW 650 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 650 Gran Coupe.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the Audi S8 and the BMW 650 Gran Coupe do an equal job of transmitting their engine's power to their wheels.

Handling

Performance

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Audi S8 and the BMW 650 Gran Coupe. The Audi S8 has significantly less cargo room than the BMW 650 Gran Coupe, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.
