2015 BMW 650 vs. 2013 BMW M3 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the BMW M3 than the BMW 650, due to its greater head- and legroom. The BMW 650 will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the BMW M3.

Convenience
With the BMW 650 you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the BMW M3, 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 650 will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the BMW M3, 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 650 and the BMW M3 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the BMW 650 is much wider than the BMW M3, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the BMW 650, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the BMW M3.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the BMW 650 does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the BMW M3.

Handling
The BMW 650 has about the same turning radius as the BMW M3, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the BMW 650 is somewhat more powerful than the BMW M3.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the BMW 650 and the BMW M3. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries into the BMW 650 as you will in the BMW M3.
