Many Toledo drivers want to experience the very best of auto luxury, but struggle to decide between the 2020 BMW 5 Series vs. Mercedes-Benz E-Class when researching options. So, we’re here to make the decision a little easier for you. While the BMW 5 Series is no stranger to the Perrysburg roads, it’s the Mercedes-Benz E-Class that has the power and technology to really impress even the most seasoned luxury driver.


E-Class or 5 Series: Base Performance

Let’s start out with the basics. If you choose the base BMW 5 Series, you’ll enjoy the

2.0-liter BMW TwinPower Turbo inline 4-cylinder with 248 hp. While that might sound like a good deal of power, compare that to the 2.0L inline-4 turbo engine found standard on the E-Class. The E-Class can generate up to 255 hp, which surpasses the 5 Series and adds just that bit of extra kick to your Maumee commutes.

E-Class or 5 Series: Upgraded Performance

So the E-Class has the edge on standard powertrain offerings, what about the upgraded engine? The difference is even more drastic. The 5 Series has an optional 3.0-liter BMW TwinPower Turbo inline 6-cylinder with 335 hp, which sounds impressive until you consider the available 3.0L V6 biturbo that the E-Class offers. This engine generates 362 hp, which is a difference of nearly 30 hp! It’s no surprise that the E-Class produces great results with all that power, zooming from 0 to 60 mph in just 5.0 seconds flat.

E-Class or 5 Series: Safety Technology

Finally, between the BMW 5 Series or Mercedes-Benz E-Class, which car delivers cutting-edge technology to keep you well-protected on the roads? The Mercedes-Benz E-Class offers exclusive options that you won’t find anywhere else:

  • PRESAFE® Sound plays “pink noise” over the sound system to shield your ears from noises in case of a collision.
  • PRESAFE® Impulse Side is the first in the industry, protecting you from impact by inflating the front-seat bolster.
