The E-Class vs. 5-Series are two of the most frequently compared Mercedes-Benz and BMW vehicles–and with good reason. These sedans are well-known for delivering great performance and interior features, as well as all the prestige of their respective brands. Needless to say, Ewa Beach and Waipahu shoppers may find choosing one or the other challenging. So, we’ve stacked them up side-by-side, starting with the entry-level trims. Compare the Mercedes-Benz E 300 vs. BMW 5-Series 530i below!

E 300 vs. 5-Series: Premium Features

When it comes to luxury features, such as authentic wood interior trim, central displays, and leather-wrapped steering wheels, Mercedes-Benz and BMW deliver. Even so, it’s hard to outdo the forward-thinking and intuitive E-Class — 5-Series technology simply can’t compete. You won’t find any of these inside the BMW 5-Series:

  • 12.3-inch COMAND® display with a touchpad controller
  • Mercedes-Benz mbrace® with four available packages
  • Touch Controls for the multifunction steering wheel
  • 64-color LED ambient lighting for the cabin

E 300 vs. 5-Series: Safety Features

The tech-savviness of the Mercedes-Benz E-Class extends to its safety features. Sure, the BMW 5-Series comes with plenty of its own, including keyless access, a rearview camera, telematics, and power side mirrors — but so does the E-Class. In fact, the E-Class has a reputation for revolutionizing safety. Here are just a few of its latest offerings:
