2016 Mercedes-Benz E-Class vs. 2016 BMW 328 Gran Turismo Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the BMW 328 Gran Turismo than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, due to its greater head- and legroom. The BMW 328 Gran Turismo will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

Convenience
The BMW 328 Gran Turismo requires fewer visits to the gas station than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, 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 Mercedes-Benz E-Class will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the BMW 328 Gran Turismo, 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. In this case, the Mercedes-Benz E-Class will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the BMW 328 Gran Turismo.

Dimensions
Since the Mercedes-Benz E-Class is much slimmer than the BMW 328 Gran Turismo, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. The Mercedes-Benz E-Class is slightly shorter than the BMW 328 Gran Turismo, which may make it easier to park.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Mercedes-Benz E-Class has a much more powerful engine than the BMW 328 Gran Turismo. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Utility
The Mercedes-Benz E-Class has less seating than the BMW 328 Gran Turismo, making the BMW 328 Gran Turismo the better choice if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Mercedes-Benz E-Class has significantly less cargo room than the BMW 328 Gran Turismo, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.
