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 63. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 63, 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 63, 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). When looking only at MSRP, the BMW 540 will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 63. 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 63 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The BMW 540 is a little wider than the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 63, so getting in and out of the car in a crowded parking lot may be a little more of a squeeze. 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 63.

Handling
The BMW 540 has about the same turning radius as the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 63, allowing equal maneuverability in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the BMW 540 is significantly less powerful than the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 63. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Powertrain
The BMW 540 has much less torque than the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 63, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

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 63. The BMW 540 has a roomier cargo area for holding your bags or other items than the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 63.

Warranty
The BMW 540 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 63.
