2016 BMW 435 vs. 2016 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the BMW 435 and the Mercedes-Benz SL-Class in the front seats.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the BMW 435 as you will with the Mercedes-Benz SL-Class, 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). Based on MSRP, the BMW 435 is clearly a better financial choice over the Mercedes-Benz SL-Class. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The BMW 435 will cost more in transportation costs than the Mercedes-Benz SL-Class.

Dimensions
Since the BMW 435 is much slimmer than the Mercedes-Benz SL-Class, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. When looking at overall length, the BMW 435 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Mercedes-Benz SL-Class.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the BMW 435 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Mercedes-Benz SL-Class.

Handling
The BMW 435 has a larger turning radius than the Mercedes-Benz SL-Class, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The BMW 435 has less horsepower than the Mercedes-Benz SL-Class, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Utility
The BMW 435 offers greater seating capacity than the Mercedes-Benz SL-Class, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries into the BMW 435 as you will in the Mercedes-Benz SL-Class.

Warranty
The BMW 435 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Mercedes-Benz SL-Class.
