Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the BMW 740 than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class. The BMW 740 will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

The BMW 740 will cost more in transportation costs than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the BMW 740 transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.
