2016 BMW Z4 vs. 2016 Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class Review

Comparison Review

As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the BMW Z4 and the Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class in the front seats.

With the Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the BMW Z4, due to its tank size and fuel economy.

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 Z4 is somewhat more expensive than the Mercedes-Benz SLK-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 Z4 will cost more in transportation costs than the Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class.

The BMW Z4 is a little narrower than the Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class, so you'll have an easier time getting in and out of the car in a tight parking spot. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the BMW Z4, which is slightly longer than the Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class.

With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the BMW Z4 transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class.

The BMW Z4 has about the same turning radius as the Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

When it comes to horsepower, the BMW Z4 is somewhat more powerful than the Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class.

In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the BMW Z4 and the Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class. The BMW Z4 has significantly less cargo room than the Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

The BMW Z4 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Mercedes-Benz SLK-Class.
