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 M850 than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class. The Mercedes-Benz E-Class will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the BMW M850.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the BMW M850 as you will with the Mercedes-Benz E-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). The BMW M850 will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, 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 E-Class have similar Destination Charges.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the BMW M850 does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

Handling
The BMW M850 has a larger turning radius than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
