Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the BMW 530 than the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 43. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 43, the BMW 530 may be a little roomier and more comfortable for the driver and front seat passengers.

Convenience
With the BMW 530 you will definitely be making fewer stops at the gas station than with the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 43, 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). When looking only at MSRP, the BMW 530 will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Mercedes-Benz AMG C 43.
