2016 BMW 640 vs. 2016 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Mercedes-Benz E-Class than the BMW 640, due to its greater head- and legroom. The BMW 640 will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

Convenience
The BMW 640 will require fewer stops at the gas station than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, making it more convenient to drive.

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 640 will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, 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 640 will cost more in transportation costs than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

Dimensions
Since the BMW 640 is much wider than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, 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 BMW 640, which is slightly longer than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the BMW 640 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

Handling
The BMW 640 has a larger turning radius than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The BMW 640 has less horsepower than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the BMW 640 and the Mercedes-Benz E-Class. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the BMW 640 will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

Warranty
The BMW 640 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.
