Comparison Review

Comfort
The Mercedes-Benz S-Class offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the BMW M2 with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the Mercedes-Benz S-Class and the BMW M2 in the front seats.

Convenience
With the Mercedes-Benz S-Class you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the BMW M2, due to its larger tank size and better fuel economy.

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 S-Class will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the BMW M2, 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 Mercedes-Benz S-Class and the BMW M2 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
Since the Mercedes-Benz S-Class is much wider than the BMW M2, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. If you go with the Mercedes-Benz S-Class, you may be circling the block looking for a space large enough to park more often than with the BMW M2.

Drivetrain
With somewhat higher torque, the engine of the Mercedes-Benz S-Class transmits a bit more power to the wheels than the BMW M2.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Mercedes-Benz S-Class is somewhat more powerful than the BMW M2.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Mercedes-Benz S-Class and the BMW M2. You'll be able to fit about the same amount of groceries into the Mercedes-Benz S-Class as you will in the BMW M2.

Warranty
The Mercedes-Benz S-Class comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the BMW M2.
