2015 BMW 650 Gran Coupe vs. 2015 BMW 550 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will feel a little more squished in the BMW 650 Gran Coupe than in the BMW 550, due to the BMW 650 Gran Coupe's smaller rear head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the BMW 650 Gran Coupe and the BMW 550 in the front seats.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the BMW 650 Gran Coupe as you will with the BMW 550, 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 650 Gran Coupe will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the BMW 550, 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 Gran Coupe and the BMW 550 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The BMW 650 Gran Coupe is a little wider than the BMW 550, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. When looking at overall length, the BMW 650 Gran Coupe takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the BMW 550.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the BMW 650 Gran Coupe and the BMW 550 do an equal job of transmitting their engine's power to their wheels.

Handling
The BMW 650 Gran Coupe has about the same turning radius as the BMW 550, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
In terms of horsepower, it's basically a tie between the BMW 650 Gran Coupe and the BMW 550.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the BMW 650 Gran Coupe and the BMW 550. The BMW 650 Gran Coupe has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the BMW 550.

Warranty
The BMW 650 Gran Coupe comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the BMW 550.
