2016 BMW M5 vs. 2016 Mercedes-Benz S-Class Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the BMW M5 than the Mercedes-Benz S-Class. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the BMW M5 and the Mercedes-Benz S-Class in the front seats.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the BMW M5 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 M5 is clearly a better financial choice over the Mercedes-Benz S-Class.

The BMW M5 will cost more in transportation costs than the Mercedes-Benz S-Class.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the BMW M5 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Mercedes-Benz S-Class.

Handling

When it comes to horsepower, the BMW M5 is somewhat more powerful than the Mercedes-Benz S-Class.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the BMW M5 and the Mercedes-Benz S-Class.
