2014 BMW 550 vs. 2015 BMW 528 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The BMW 550 offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the BMW 528 with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the BMW 550 and the BMW 528 in the front seats.

Convenience
With the BMW 528 you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the BMW 550, due to its tank size and 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 BMW 550 will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the BMW 528, 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. The BMW 550 and the BMW 528 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The BMW 550 is about the same width as the BMW 528. When looking at overall length, the BMW 550 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the BMW 528.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the BMW 550 does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the BMW 528.

Handling
The BMW 550 has about the same turning radius as the BMW 528, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the BMW 550 has a much more powerful engine than the BMW 528. 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 BMW 550 and the BMW 528. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries into the BMW 550 as you will in the BMW 528.

Warranty
The BMW 550 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the BMW 528.
