2015 BMW 640 vs. 2014 Porsche Panamera Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Porsche Panamera 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 Porsche Panamera.

Convenience
The Porsche Panamera requires fewer visits to the gas station than the BMW 640, 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). 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.

Dimensions
The BMW 640 is a little narrower than the Porsche Panamera, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. 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.

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

Handling
The BMW 640 has a smaller turning radius than the Porsche Panamera, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
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.

Utility
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.

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