2015 BMW 650 Gran Coupe vs. 2015 Mercedes-Benz S-Class Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Mercedes-Benz S-Class than the BMW 650 Gran Coupe, due to its greater head- and legroom. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Mercedes-Benz S-Class, the BMW 650 Gran Coupe may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

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 Mercedes-Benz S-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). Based on MSRP, the BMW 650 Gran Coupe is clearly a better financial choice over the Mercedes-Benz S-Class. 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 Mercedes-Benz S-Class have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The BMW 650 Gran Coupe is about the same width as the Mercedes-Benz S-Class. The BMW 650 Gran Coupe is slightly shorter than the Mercedes-Benz S-Class, which may make it easier to park.

Drivetrain
The BMW 650 Gran Coupe has much less torque than the Mercedes-Benz S-Class, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The BMW 650 Gran Coupe has a smaller turning radius than the Mercedes-Benz S-Class, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the BMW 650 Gran Coupe is significantly less powerful than the Mercedes-Benz S-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 650 Gran Coupe and the Mercedes-Benz S-Class.

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