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.
