2014 BMW 640 Gran Coupe vs. 2013 BMW ActiveHybrid 5 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the BMW ActiveHybrid 5 than the BMW 640 Gran Coupe, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the BMW 640 Gran Coupe and the BMW ActiveHybrid 5 in the front seats.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the BMW 640 Gran Coupe as you will with the BMW ActiveHybrid 5, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

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 Gran Coupe will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the BMW ActiveHybrid 5, 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 Gran Coupe and the BMW ActiveHybrid 5 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The BMW 640 Gran Coupe is a little wider than the BMW ActiveHybrid 5, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the BMW 640 Gran Coupe, which is slightly longer than the BMW ActiveHybrid 5.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the BMW 640 Gran Coupe transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the BMW ActiveHybrid 5.

Handling
The BMW 640 Gran Coupe has about the same turning radius as the BMW ActiveHybrid 5, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the BMW 640 Gran Coupe is somewhat more powerful than the BMW ActiveHybrid 5.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the BMW 640 Gran Coupe and the BMW ActiveHybrid 5. The BMW 640 Gran Coupe has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the BMW ActiveHybrid 5.

Warranty
The BMW 640 Gran Coupe comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the BMW ActiveHybrid 5.
