2016 Mercedes-Benz S-Class vs. 2016 BMW 640 Gran Coupe Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the BMW 640 Gran Coupe than the Mercedes-Benz S-Class, due to its greater head- and legroom. 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
With the BMW 640 Gran Coupe you will definitely be making less frequent stops at the gas station than with the Mercedes-Benz S-Class, 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 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. In this case, the Mercedes-Benz S-Class will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the BMW 640 Gran Coupe.

Dimensions
