2014 BMW M6 vs. 2014 BMW Z4 Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the BMW Z4, the BMW M6 may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
The BMW M6 will require fewer stops at the gas station than the BMW Z4, 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 M6 will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the BMW Z4, 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 M6 and the BMW Z4 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the BMW M6 is much wider than the BMW Z4, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the BMW M6, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the BMW Z4.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the BMW M6 does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the BMW Z4.

Handling
The BMW M6 has a larger turning radius than the BMW Z4, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the BMW M6 has a much more powerful engine than the BMW Z4. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Utility
The BMW M6 offers greater seating capacity than the BMW Z4, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the BMW M6 will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the BMW Z4.

Warranty
The BMW M6 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the BMW Z4.
