2015 Mercedes-Benz S-Class vs. 2015 BMW 640 Gran Coupe Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Mercedes-Benz S-Class than the BMW 640 Gran Coupe. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Mercedes-Benz S-Class, drivers may find the BMW 640 Gran Coupe a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

Convenience
The BMW 640 Gran Coupe requires fewer visits to the gas station than the Mercedes-Benz S-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 S-Class will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the BMW 640 Gran Coupe, 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 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.
