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 740 than the Mercedes-Benz AMG E 53. The BMW 740 will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Mercedes-Benz AMG E 53.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the BMW 740 as you will with the Mercedes-Benz AMG E 53, 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 BMW 740 is somewhat more expensive than the Mercedes-Benz AMG E 53. 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 740 and the Mercedes-Benz AMG E 53 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the BMW 740 is much wider than the Mercedes-Benz AMG E 53, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the BMW 740, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the Mercedes-Benz AMG E 53.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the BMW 740 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Mercedes-Benz AMG E 53.

Handling

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the BMW 740 and the Mercedes-Benz AMG E 53. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the BMW 740 will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Mercedes-Benz AMG E 53.

Warranty
