2014 Mercedes-Benz S-Class vs. 2014 BMW 640 Gran Coupe Review

Comparison Review


Comfort
The BMW 640 Gran Coupe will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Mercedes-Benz S-Class.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Mercedes-Benz S-Class as you will with the BMW 640 Gran Coupe, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

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 S-Class is somewhat more expensive than the BMW 640 Gran Coupe. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The Mercedes-Benz S-Class and the BMW 640 Gran Coupe have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Mercedes-Benz S-Class is about the same width as the BMW 640 Gran Coupe. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the Mercedes-Benz S-Class, which is slightly longer than the BMW 640 Gran Coupe.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Mercedes-Benz S-Class does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the BMW 640 Gran Coupe.

Handling
The Mercedes-Benz S-Class has a larger turning radius than the BMW 640 Gran Coupe, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Mercedes-Benz S-Class has a much more powerful engine than the BMW 640 Gran Coupe. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Mercedes-Benz S-Class and the BMW 640 Gran Coupe.

Warranty
The Mercedes-Benz S-Class comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the BMW 640 Gran Coupe.
