2014 BMW M6 vs. 2014 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the BMW M6 and the Mercedes-Benz SL-Class in the front seats.

Convenience
The Mercedes-Benz SL-Class requires fewer visits to the gas station than the BMW M6, 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). Based on MSRP, the BMW M6 is clearly a better financial choice over the Mercedes-Benz SL-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 M6 and the Mercedes-Benz SL-Class have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the BMW M6 is much slimmer than the Mercedes-Benz SL-Class, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. 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 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the BMW M6 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Mercedes-Benz SL-Class.

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

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the BMW M6 is somewhat more powerful than the Mercedes-Benz SL-Class.

Utility
The BMW M6 offers greater seating capacity than the Mercedes-Benz SL-Class, making it a better choice for those who find themselves chauffeuring others around. The BMW M6 has less cargo capacity than the Mercedes-Benz SL-Class, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The BMW M6 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Mercedes-Benz SL-Class.
