2020 Mercedes-Benz E-Class vs. 2019 BMW 5-Series

The launch of the 2020 Mercedes-Benz E-Class brought more things for car lovers to expect. One of which is the fact that its base engine is more powerful and fuel-efficient. Expect the usual lavish cabin, offering a smooth ride to users.

In the case of the 2019 BMW 5-Series, there are more advanced features to look forward to. Note, however, that it has discontinued its turbo-diesel engine version.

Design & Style

The 2020 E-Class boasts of the usual lavish interior, with all the premium quality materials you expect from a luxury ride. Seating four to seven people, depending on the configuration, which include coupe, cabriolet, sedan, and wagon versions. It is good to note that all trim levels come standard with power-adjustable front seats. Adorned with wood trim inside, the sunroof is a standard, and can be upgraded to a panoramic version.

The 2019 BMW 5-Series, on the other hand, is loved by those who have a first glance on its handsome and athletic exterior. Available in various trim levels, its base trim carries 18-inch wheels, and also has features like power-folding mirrors, power-adjustable steering wheel, and LED adaptive headlights. There is not enough room to accommodate taller passengers in its cabin, though.

Technology & Safety

Technology wise, there is plenty to look forward to in the E-Class. There is a 12.3-inch display, whose functions are supported by the console-mounted knob and touchpad. There are also controls mounted on the car’s steering wheels. It carries the COMAND® infotainment system that supports smartphone integration via Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, plus it has an HD radio, two USB ports, and a Bluetooth® interface. Standard safety features found in this car are plenty, among them are rain-sensing windshield wipers, brake assist, a rearview camera, a driver attention monitor, crosswind assist, and emergency brake assist. Also coming standard are its pre-collision passenger protection system called Mercedes-Benz PRESAFE®, and that of Mercedes’ Car-to-X communication, which can be used to exchange information between vehicles.

The 2019 BMW 5-Series, carries the same iDrive infotainment system, which has not been updated yet. It only supports Apple CarPlay for a year’s free subscription. After that, you need to pay the price to enjoy this feature. Safety wise, it includes blind spot monitoring, and lane departure warning.


Turbocharged by a four-cylinder engine, the BMW 5-Series scores up to 248 horsepower. The four-cylinder, 2.0-liter version counterpart for the E-Class reaches up to 255 horsepower. For those who are looking for more powerful engines, there is also the twin-turbo V6, 3.0-liter which can reach up to 362 horsepower. A more advanced model can go up as high as 429 horsepower in terms of results, with the remaining engine version, that of a twin-turbocharged V8, 4.0-liter reaching up to 603 horsepower.

The Bottom Line

The E-Class never fails to provide what it has promised to its patrons, that is, a powerful and potent engine lineup. It also looks awesome in terms of design, complemented by its reliable and user-friendly technology and safety features.
