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 M240 than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the BMW M240 and the Mercedes-Benz E-Class in the front seats.

Convenience
The Mercedes-Benz E-Class requires fewer visits to the gas station than the BMW M240, 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). Based on MSRP, the BMW M240 is clearly a better financial choice over the Mercedes-Benz E-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 M240 and the Mercedes-Benz E-Class have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the BMW M240 is much slimmer than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, it'll be much easier to find a wide enough space in a crowded parking lot. If you go with the BMW M240, you'll have a much easier time finding a large enough space to park than you will with the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

Drivetrain
With similar torque, the BMW M240 and the Mercedes-Benz E-Class do an equal job of transmitting their engine's power to their wheels.

Handling
The BMW M240 has a smaller turning radius than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The BMW M240 has less horsepower than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, 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 M240 and the Mercedes-Benz E-Class. The BMW M240 has less cargo capacity than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The BMW M240 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.
