Comparison Review

Comfort
The BMW 740 offers a bit more room for passengers in the back seat than the Mercedes-Benz S-Class. The Mercedes-Benz S-Class will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the BMW 740.

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 S-Class, 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). Based on MSRP, the BMW 740 is clearly a better financial choice over the Mercedes-Benz S-Class. 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 S-Class have similar Destination Charges.

The BMW 740 is about the same width as the Mercedes-Benz S-Class. When looking at overall length, the BMW 740 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Mercedes-Benz S-Class.

Drivetrain
The BMW 740 has much less torque than the Mercedes-Benz S-Class, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Handling
The BMW 740 has a larger turning radius than the Mercedes-Benz S-Class, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the BMW 740 is significantly less powerful than the Mercedes-Benz S-Class. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

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 S-Class. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the BMW 740 will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Mercedes-Benz S-Class.
