2015 BMW 640 Gran Coupe vs. 2014 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 Gran Coupe, due to its greater head- and legroom. The BMW 640 Gran Coupe will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

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 Mercedes-Benz E-Class, 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 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 Gran Coupe and the Mercedes-Benz E-Class have similar Destination Charges.

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

Drivetrain
The BMW 640 Gran Coupe has much less torque than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The BMW 640 Gran Coupe 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
When it comes to horsepower, the BMW 640 Gran Coupe is significantly less powerful than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class. 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 Gran Coupe and the Mercedes-Benz E-Class. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries into the BMW 640 Gran Coupe as you will in the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

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