Starting MSRP

Price is the most common starting point for car shoppers. The 2018 Mercedes-Benz CLS 550 Coupe has a starting MSRP of $75,150, while the 2019 BMW 6-series Gran Coupe starts at $81,500. You’d expect the BMW to offer more power and features to justify the price difference. However, as you read on, you’ll see that simply isn’t the case.

Performance

  • Engine: The new CLS 550 comes equipped with a 4.7 biturbo V8 engine. The 6-Series Gran Coupe gets a 3.0L twin-turbo 6-cylinder.
  • Specs: Overall, the CLS 550 is more powerful. It generates 402 hp and 443 lb-ft of torque vs. the 640i’s 315 hp and 332 lb-ft of torque.
  • Transmission: For smoother shifting, both include an automatic transmission. Only the CLS 550, however, features a 9-speed.
  • MPG Ratings: The 6-Series Gran Coupe is more efficient than the CLS; it earns 20 mpg city/29 mpg highway. The CLS earns 18 mpg city/26 mpg highway.  

Luxury & Convenience

If the CLS 550 has a more powerful engine, does the price difference then mean the 6-Series Gran Coupe is the more luxurious option? Turns out the Mercedes-Benz CLS 550 is loaded with equipment that’s either optional or altogether unavailable on the 6-Series Gran Coupe. AIRMATIC® adaptive air suspension and automatic load-leveling give Union City drivers a smooth and responsive ride, yet neither feature is available on the 6-Series Gran Coupe.

Both vehicles have lush leather upholstery and wood trim interiors, but only the CLS 550 provides rear passengers with storage in the armrest and cupholders to keep beverages safely stowed and conveniently within reach. In fact, the CLS 550 has a full center console for rear passengers, putting access to comfort controls at their fingertips.

Seatbelt Safety

The CLS 550 continues to shine when it comes to safety. Both vehicles offer driver assists to help keep you safe on the road. However, should a crash become unavoidable, the CLS 550 provides protection for all four passengers. Front- and rear- passenger seatbelt pretensioners remove seatbelt slack and restrain each passenger as early as possible to reduce crash force. The 6-Series Gran Coupe only offers pretensioners for the front seatbelts.
