2014 Porsche Panamera vs. 2014 BMW 640 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 Porsche Panamera than the BMW 640. The BMW 640 will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Porsche Panamera.

Convenience
The Porsche Panamera will require fewer stops at the gas station than the BMW 640, 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 Porsche Panamera will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the BMW 640, 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 Porsche Panamera will cost more in transportation costs than the BMW 640.

Dimensions
The Porsche Panamera is a little wider than the BMW 640, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. If you go with the Porsche Panamera, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the BMW 640.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Porsche Panamera transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the BMW 640.

Handling
The Porsche Panamera has a larger turning radius than the BMW 640, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Porsche Panamera has a much more powerful engine than the BMW 640. 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 Porsche Panamera and the BMW 640. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Porsche Panamera will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the BMW 640.

Warranty
The Porsche Panamera comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the BMW 640.
