2019 Mercedes-Benz E-Class vs. 2019 BMW 5 Series

Drivers from West Bloomfield to Birmingham have been waiting to get their hands on the new 2019 Mercedes-Benz E-Class ever since it was first previewed, but how well does it measure up against a top competitor from BMW? Although there are many configurations to compare, close attention quickly reveals that the E-Class offers performance upgrades and options that give it a clear advantage!

E-Class vs. 5 Series: Performance

When it comes to performance, the E-Class E 300 and the 5 Series 530i have a lot in common. Both start with rear-wheel drive but offer alternative drivetrains right from the start. What’s more, the baseline configurations of both models include a 2.0L inline-4 engine. With that said, there are a few key differences that need to be mentioned:

  • The E 300 has a slight disadvantage in horsepower compared to the starting build of the 5 Series. However, the E-Class wins out in torque, offering 15 more lb-ft than its competitor at even lower RPMs.
  • The E-Class has a sharper turning radius than the BMW 5 Series, and that means its easier to maneuver whether you’re testing it out at the track or driving through Birmingham.
  • Drivers who decide to upgrade will find that the E-Class has much more to offer. The most powerful E-Class, the S AMG® E 63 4MATIC® Sedan, offers up to 603 hp and 627 lb-ft of torque. The most powerful 5-series, the M550i xDrive Sedan, doesn’t even come close! This model offers 456 hp and 480 lb-ft of torque.

E-Class vs. 5 Series: Body Styles and Options

Drivers who like what they see in the 5-Series will have to settle for its sedan build, as the BMW is only available in one body type. On the other hand, those who select the E-Class will be able to have their choice in any one of four completely different styles:

Mercedes-Benz E-Class Sedan

Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupe

Mercedes-Benz E-Class Cabriolet

Mercedes-Benz E-Class Wagon
