2015 Mercedes-Benz E-Class vs. BMW 5-Series

2015 Mercedes-Benz E-Class


Two of the most popular luxury sedans on the market today are the 2015 Mercedes-Benz E-Class near Glencoe and the BMW 5-Series. These sedans have competed against each other in the marketplace for more than two decades, and many car buyers in Glencoe and surrounding communities are interested in learning more about both models to determine which is best for their needs.

Beautiful Style Throughout the Vehicles

When you compare the 2015 E-Class from Mercedes-Benz against the BMW 5-Series, you will notice the sleek, sophisticated curves on the bodies of both. These are gorgeous vehicles, and both have the clout of a luxury brand name and recognizable emblem. These are both vehicles that exude elegance inside and out. Inside the BMW, you will find an interior that is generally lackluster and bland. The Mercedes-Benz makes ample use of wood, leather and chrome, and it has an additional appeal that you simply cannot find in the BMW. The latest model of the BMW 5-Series, however, has been redesigned to make it slightly less roomy than previous models. In previous years, the 5-Series has been superior in this area, providing greater leg room to seat four adults comfortably, but the E-Class is now ahead of the game in this area.

The Performance of a Luxury Car

While some car buyers in the market for a new luxury car in Glencoe or other nearby communities will invest in a luxury car for the clout of investing in a recognizable brand name or the luxury of a pampering interior, others will choose to purchase these vehicles because of the promise of performance. The Mercedes-Benz E-Class has a 3.0-liter diesel engine, and the BMW has a 530d engine. The Mercedes-Benz is far superior in terms of the sound of the engine. The difference in acceleration is miniscule, and it may not be noticeable for most drivers. However, the smoother ride and the quieter engine will be noticeable. Generally, the Mercedes-Benz has improved balance and steering over the BMW.
