Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the BMW 540 than the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 43. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 43, the BMW 540 may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
The BMW 540 will require fewer stops at the gas station than the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 43, 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 BMW 540 is somewhat more expensive than the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 43. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The BMW 540 and the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 43 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the BMW 540 is much wider than the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 43, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the BMW 540, which is slightly longer than the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 43.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the BMW 540 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 43.

Handling
The BMW 540 has a larger turning radius than the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 43, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The BMW 540 has less horsepower than the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 43, 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 BMW 540 and the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 43. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the BMW 540 will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 43.

Warranty
The BMW 540 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 43.
