Comparison Review

Comfort
As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Mercedes-Benz SL-Class and the BMW 435 in the front seats.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Mercedes-Benz SL-Class as you will with the BMW 435, 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 SL-Class will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the BMW 435, 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 SL-Class will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the BMW 435.

Since the Mercedes-Benz SL-Class is much wider than the BMW 435, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. When looking at overall length, the Mercedes-Benz SL-Class takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the BMW 435.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Mercedes-Benz SL-Class transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the BMW 435.

Utility
The Mercedes-Benz SL-Class has less seating than the BMW 435, making the BMW 435 the better choice if you need to chauffeur many passengers. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries into the Mercedes-Benz SL-Class as you will in the BMW 435.
