2015 BMW 550 vs. 2015 BMW 640 Gran Coupe Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The BMW 550 offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the BMW 640 Gran Coupe. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the BMW 550 and the BMW 640 Gran Coupe in the front seats.

Convenience
With the BMW 640 Gran Coupe 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). Based on MSRP, the BMW 550 is clearly a better financial choice over the BMW 640 Gran Coupe. 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 640 Gran Coupe have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The BMW 550 is a little narrower than the BMW 640 Gran Coupe, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. When looking at overall length, the BMW 550 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the BMW 640 Gran Coupe.

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 640 Gran Coupe.

Handling
The BMW 550 has about the same turning radius as the BMW 640 Gran Coupe, 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 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 BMW 550 and the BMW 640 Gran Coupe. The BMW 550 has less cargo capacity than the BMW 640 Gran Coupe, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The BMW 550 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the BMW 640 Gran Coupe.
