2020 Mercedes-Benz E-Class vs. 2020 Lexus GS

It cannot be denied that only the 2020 Mercedes-Benz E-Class deserves the top spot for the midsize luxury segment. It perfectly demonstrates how a true luxury car should be, given that it is not a full-sized vehicle. What makes it the best is that it generously offers plenty of options from the diverse set of engine choices and trim levels. This fact guarantees that one can have a unique luxury vehicle that fits all kinds of specifications.

Although the E-Class is already on top of everyone else, other car makers can’t help but offer their bests too. The 2020 Lexus GS may not be as popular as the E-Class but it does look stylish which makes it interesting to know about.

Design & Style

One of the many reasons why the E-Class stands out is its impeccable styling. The curvy exterior has a wide grille, sloping tail, and the pretty and big Mercedes-Benz star that decorates the grille. What makes it even more special is the chic cabin. The standard synthetic leather looks nice but it can be made exceptional with an array of modifications, including mood lighting and intricate stitching.

The GS may have a buttoned-down exterior but it is still a looker. The subtle styling is punctuated with a low roof, dramatic grille, and taut body lines. The interior is also refined with its low dash and various options for the trim panels.

Technology & Safety

The E-Class gets a powerful combo with both the COMAND® and MBUX system for infotainment. The voice controls are excellent, and sound quality is great. The driver aids are likewise seamless and are effective at keeping the driver informed for a safer ride.

Although the cabin looks pretty modern, the infotainment technology on the GS is not impressive. There is no new tech to talk about and what it has is good but limited in functions.


The E-Class easily exceeds all expectations with its noteworthy performance. Even at the base model with only a 2.0-liter engine, the 255 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque will score a lot of nods because it is responsive and consistent. It can switch from being user-friendly at calm city speeds to a rip-roaring speed machine in a moment’s notice. This is attributed to the nine-speed transmission that quickly shifts and never hesitates.

The GS is impressive with its 311 hp V-6 engine but it only performs when called upon. This means that there are many factors to consider if you want to be blown up by its performance. For example, if you want a sporty drive, then you need to add extra features like limited-slip differential, a variable-ratio steering system, and more.

The Bottom Line

What makes the 2020 Mercedes-Benz E-Class remarkable is that it performs incredibly well even at standard equipment. The 2020 Lexus GS is promising but only if you are willing to purchase more upgrades.
