Comparison Review

Comfort
Passengers in the back seat will be able to stretch out a lot more in the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 43 than the BMW M850, due to its greater head- and legroom. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the BMW M850 and the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 43 in the front seats.

Convenience

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 M850 will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 43, which has a much lower MSRP. 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 M850 and the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 43 have similar Destination Charges.

Since the BMW M850 is much wider than the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 43, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. For some people, bigger is better. If that's the case for you, then you'll be happier with the BMW M850, which is slightly longer than the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 43.
