2014 Porsche Panamera vs. 2015 BMW 650 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 650. The BMW 650 will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Porsche Panamera.

Convenience
With the Porsche Panamera you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the BMW 650, due to its larger tank size and better 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 Porsche Panamera will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the BMW 650, 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 650.

Dimensions
The Porsche Panamera is a little wider than the BMW 650, 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 650.

Drivetrain
The Porsche Panamera has much less torque than the BMW 650, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The Porsche Panamera has a larger turning radius than the BMW 650, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The Porsche Panamera has less horsepower than the BMW 650, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Porsche Panamera and the BMW 650. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the Porsche Panamera will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the BMW 650.

Warranty
The Porsche Panamera comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the BMW 650.
