2016 BMW 650 vs. 2017 Mercedes-Benz C-Class Review

Comparison Review

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 will cost more in transportation costs than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

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. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the BMW 650, which is slightly longer than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

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 Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

Handling
The BMW 650 has a larger turning radius than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the BMW 650 has a much more powerful engine than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the BMW 650 and the Mercedes-Benz C-Class. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the BMW 650 will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.

Warranty
The BMW 650 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Mercedes-Benz C-Class.
