2015 BMW 650 vs. 2015 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Mercedes-Benz C-Class 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 Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

Convenience
The Mercedes-Benz C-Class requires fewer visits to the gas station than the BMW 650, 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). The BMW 650 will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Mercedes-Benz C-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 650 and the Mercedes-Benz C-Class have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the BMW 650 is much wider than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, 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 Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

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 Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

Handling

Performance
