2015 BMW M6 vs. 2016 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
With the Mercedes-Benz SL-Class you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the BMW M6, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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 Mercedes-Benz SL-Class, 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 will cost more in transportation costs than the Mercedes-Benz SL-Class.

Dimensions
The BMW M6 is a little wider than the Mercedes-Benz SL-Class, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. 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
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 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 has a much more powerful engine than the Mercedes-Benz SL-Class. 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 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.
