2015 Nissan GT-R vs. 2014 BMW 550 Gran Turismo Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the BMW 550 Gran Turismo than the Nissan GT-R, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Nissan GT-R and the BMW 550 Gran Turismo in the front seats.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Nissan GT-R as you will with the BMW 550 Gran Turismo, 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 Nissan GT-R will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the BMW 550 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. The Destination Charge for the Nissan GT-R is much higher than that for the BMW 550 Gran Turismo.

Dimensions
The Nissan GT-R is about the same width as the BMW 550 Gran Turismo. If you go with the Nissan GT-R, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the BMW 550 Gran Turismo.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the Nissan GT-R doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the BMW 550 Gran Turismo.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Nissan GT-R is somewhat more powerful than the BMW 550 Gran Turismo.

Utility
The Nissan GT-R has less seating than the BMW 550 Gran Turismo, making the BMW 550 Gran Turismo the better choice if you need to chauffeur many passengers. The Nissan GT-R has significantly less cargo room than the BMW 550 Gran Turismo, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.

Warranty
The basic warranty of the Nissan GT-R is not as nearly as extensive as that of the BMW 550 Gran Turismo.
