2014 BMW 640 Gran Coupe vs. 2013 Lexus IS-F Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the BMW 640 Gran Coupe than the Lexus IS-F. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Lexus IS-F, the BMW 640 Gran Coupe may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
With the BMW 640 Gran Coupe you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Lexus IS-F, due to its larger tank size and better 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). The BMW 640 Gran Coupe will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Lexus IS-F, 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 Lexus IS-F have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the BMW 640 Gran Coupe is much wider than the Lexus IS-F, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the BMW 640 Gran Coupe, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Lexus IS-F.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the BMW 640 Gran Coupe doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Lexus IS-F.

Handling
The BMW 640 Gran Coupe has a significantly larger turning radius than the Lexus IS-F, making it much more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the BMW 640 Gran Coupe is significantly less powerful than the Lexus IS-F. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Utility
The BMW 640 Gran Coupe offers greater seating capacity than the Lexus IS-F, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. The BMW 640 Gran Coupe has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Lexus IS-F.

Warranty
The BMW 640 Gran Coupe comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Lexus IS-F.
