2017 BMW 640 vs. 2018 Porsche Panamera Review

Comparison Review

The Porsche Panamera requires fewer visits to the gas station than the BMW 640, making it more convenient to drive.

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 640 is clearly a better financial choice over the Porsche Panamera. 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 BMW 640 will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Porsche Panamera.

Since the BMW 640 is much slimmer than the Porsche Panamera, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the BMW 640, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Porsche Panamera.

With its lower torque, the BMW 640 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Porsche Panamera.

The BMW 640 has about the same turning radius as the Porsche Panamera, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

When it comes to horsepower, the BMW 640 is significantly less powerful than the Porsche Panamera. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the BMW 640 and the Porsche Panamera. The BMW 640 has significantly less cargo room than the Porsche Panamera, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

The BMW 640 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Porsche Panamera.
