Standard Safety Equipment

The 2018 BMW 640i Gran Coupe includes many of the basics, such as telematics, a rearview camera, and front/rear parking sensors. Nevertheless, if safety and security are at the top of your car shopping list, you’ll feel more relaxed inside in the new CLS 550 Coupe vs. BMW 6-Series Gran Coupe. The CLS 550 brags these features, which aren’t found on the base 6-Series Gran Coupe:

  • Front airbag deactivation via Child Seat Detection System
  • Front/rear seatbelt tensioning retractors
  • Electronic trunk closer
  • Forward Collision Warning with Automatic Braking (COLLISION PREVENTION ASSIST PLUS®)
  • Driver attention monitor (ATTENTION ASSIST®)

.

When it comes to interior comfort and easy-access features, the 2018 Mercedes-Benz CLS 550 vs. the 2018 BMW 6-Series Gran Coupe is a near stalemate. Inside both base models’ cabins, you’ll find the following features:

  • Leather upholstery

One of the major differences between the CLS 550 and BMW 6-Series, however, is price. The starting MSRP for the 2018 BMW 640i Gran Coupe is $81,400, while the similarly equipped 2018 Mercedes-Benz CLS 550 has a much lower base price of $75,150.
