When it comes to luxury and performance, the 2019 Mercedes-Benz E-Class and 2019 BMW 5-Series are two vehicles that set the bar. However, when you compare the Mercedes-Benz E-Class vs. BMW 5-Series, the 5-Series loses some of its luster. The new E-Class offers a stronger hand-built engine, as well as revolutionary technologies. See how these two midsize sedans stack up below!

E-Class vs. 5-Series: Engine Options

The Mercedes-Benz E-Class and BMW 5-Series are two of the top performers in their segment, but the E-Class dishes out more power. Compare their engine options below:

  • Base Engine: The E 300 gets a 241-hp 2.0L turbo 4-cylinder rated at 273 lb-ft of torque. The 530i gets a 248-hp 2.0L turbo 4-cylinder rated at 258 lb-ft of torque.
  • Top-Tier Engine: The M550i xDrive features a 4.4L BMW M Performance TwinPower Turbo V8 engine that produces 456 hp. The AMG® E 63 S, however, houses a hand-built AMG® 4.0L biturbo V8 engine that generates 603 hp.

As luxury sedans, the Mercedes-Benz E-Class and BMW 5-Series offer many similar features, such as power front seats, Apple CarPlay®, and navigation. However, you won’t find the following interior features as standard equipment on the BMW 5-Series — but you will on the new E-Class:

  • 64-Color LED Ambient Lighting: Personalize your drive around Shelbyville with 64 selectable color options for the interior LED lighting system.
  • Optional 12.3-Inch Digital Instrument Cluster: The optional 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster is fitted alongside the standard 12.3-inch high-resolution display, creating an ultra-modern cabin.
  • Android Auto™: Unlike the 5-Series, the E-Class includes standard Android Auto™, so you can use your favorite Android apps via the COMAND® system.
