In tests of BMW 640i Grand Coupe and Mercedes CLS 350

They irritate the elegant silhouette of a coupe and also offer the advantage of four doors #8211; BMW 640i Grand Coupe and Mercedes CLS  350 Despite the similarities of the two new beaus to a refreshing difference.

An interior with gloss and more Gloria #8211; with crisp white and amarobraunem leather, held together by meticulously stitched seams. Between them shining glassy ash wood and brushed metal. The stainless steel door sill in blue letters of the subtle light on the origin of this Notice 6650 € expensive interiors: BMW Individual.

Mercedes CLS is ranker and leaner

True to the motto #8220;Everything can not be#8221; the BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe throws with optional fittings staffage in bowl, cover loosely to the base price of a BMW 125i. € 32 230 on top of it? Respect! Here, the origin of Bayer maintains it already house a highly extroverted appearance.

Sporty strong, yet clean and elegant sets of five-meter long BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe, the original definition of a coupe adcta final ad. His first name #8211; Gran #8211; he lives up uncontested, and therefore more constrained in the four-door American sedans aesthetes, undulationg-utility.

Similarly, the Mercedes CLS 350, which is technically, thanks to its 306-hp 3.5-liter V6 engine on par with the turbocharged six-row (320 HP) of the BMW. If the mass to be moved with the calculus moves, it is even ahead of the Mercedes. Nearly 250 kg of the CLS weighs less what it is to be considered in view of his slender figure and ranker acting.

Mercedes CLS is cut close

This however results in a slightly lower level of internal width of the front box seats, not only measurable, but is also experienced. In addition, backcombed hairstyles come here more easily with the headliner in touch, and the broad, flat C-pillar narrows the view to the rear. In the sense of space, the Mercedes CLS Coupé to the BMW 6 Series Gran So let go first, while the second row is comfortable in both cases, ventilated with an optional four-zone air conditioning.

It does not matter whether two-or four-door #8211; the box seats are the front of a coupe, as on multi-contour (Mercedes) or comfort seats (BMW). Both beds features options for long journeys, passengers are diverse and easily adjustable, and brace themselves, bidding good lateral support, committed against the centrifugal force.

So relaxed, the flow of information are still in the BMW clearly arrives bundled with the driver #8211; if only because the white on black dials drawn easier to read than the light-shaded scale in the Mercedes #8211; not to mention the often acclaimed i-Drive entirely.

The body section is still the star moves in front of the kidney, especially the panoramic view of the Gran Coupe fails extremely poor. The end of the long engine hood can be imagined only in part, to spy out the rear end through the narrow rear window, either.

BMW 6 Series Gran Coupe with better driving dynamics

But now an end to petty detail and value comparisons: This is great and the species-range coupé field where the Bavarian brew convinces of 450 Newton meters of torque and excellent switching eight-speed automatic connoisseurs. With gentle baritone expresses the BMW 640i to the front #8211; powerful, serene and sublime. Its flexible six-cylinder turbo power has such a broad repertoire that could temporarily assume even a V8 under the long hood.

Only incorrigible types of players strum manually with the paddles in the transmission, but also to implement each click post. In CLS, the small paddles on the steering wheel, however, only serve as a stylistic device to the next translation request, select a time delay.

So put the seven-speed automatic exercise better self, what he is doing equally soft as accurate. To keep step with the arrival of the BMW, the 7G-Tronic Plus is, however, almost sweating. Finally, the V6-sucker requires much more speed, which is associated with a more subjective unentspannten, sometimes harsh noise.

Although the objectively measured noise levels to be lower in the Mercedes, the drive section is still a clear BMW#8217;s domain.

Mercedes CLS has the comfort and the cost of the lead

Comfort, however, Mercedes-country. Even with the optional 19-inch tires, it is possible the Airmatic (2.023 €) of the CLS, keep encouraging small short bursts and long waves shortly. At higher speeds the Gran Coupe plays a similarly high level.

Fast, small suggestions to bring the BMW has much more to stumble. Surprise that the 19-inch wheels sometimes awkwardly over manhole covers or crossing tram rails, and the comfort-plus-position does not prevent the 2670 € Adaptivfahrwerks expensive.

Voices seem suspension and damping comfort or position in sports, because the BMW 6 Series feels obliged inherently more vitality #8211; with a direct-acting synthetic approach only in control that it provides adequate holding power and a good feedback. The considerable weight is noticeable in the handling and will not, despite all the technical tricks, such as Active Steering (1,950 € extra), completely concealed. But that sweeps from Bayer, given its mass is very precise and agile on land, is not only without mention, but very commendable.

Ruts, and tropic sensitivity criteria are, however, that cost him points in the ride. The dynamic tests it done faster, although the Mercedes subjectively feels light-footed. Therefore under these controls in the border area earlier, less directly follows steering inputs.

In general, the CLS steering is too loose, leading to less direct relationship to the street.

As for the driving safety and control systems #8211; whether standard or optional mostly #8211; concerns keep both in balance. The costs, however, the pendulum has swung clearly in the direction of Mercedes, which itself is adjusted for equipment still around 10,000 € cheaper.

And consumption, he is a tight liters per 100 kilometers under the Gran Coupe, in conjunction with the larger tank is enough for over 100 kilometers per charge more. And so he draws with many small advantages over the end of the great rival BMW.
