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 Mercedes-Benz AMG E 53 will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the BMW 430, which has a much lower MSRP.

The Mercedes-Benz AMG E 53 and the BMW 430 have similar Destination Charges.
