If there were to be an even larger and more comfortable version of the 3-Series, the 2022 BMW 5-Series would be it! The 5-Series has been a popular choice for drivers who are looking for luxurious car that packs a punch in performance as well. On the other hand, the Mercedes Benz E-class is an excellent contender in the luxury car category, providing a comfortable interior.
Here is a comparison between both cars.
Design & Style
The 2022 BMW 5-Series has BMW’s signature driver-focused dashboard, providing comfortable reach to the controls. The controls use physical buttons and has a nice, tactile feel to them. There are multiple adjustments for the steering wheel and seats, allowing you to have a much more comfortable ride. The addition of cushioned armrests has enhanced the comfort of any ride. The interior is also trimmed with upmarket material, giving the car an absolutely luxurious look.
The 2022 Mercedes Benz E-class uses upmarket material for its interior and is close in quality to the 5-Series. The buttons for the controls has a nice response to them. The dashboard is a glossy black console gives the interior a modern and luxurious feel to the interior. The driver’s seat is an electronic seat that helps to adjust the driver’s seating position.
Technology & Safety
All 5-series models get satellite navigation, the 16-speaker Harman Kardon sound system, a digital television and other services. The iDrive infotainment system is excellent and is projected on a large 10-inch display. In addition to the mandatory safety features in most cars, the 4-Series has a wide range of hi-tech safety systems in place. Traffic assistant, Lane departure warnings and cruise control are some examples of the additional safety features. The 5-Series has also done marvelously well in crash test ratings.
All E-class models come with a 8.4-inch color display that is linked to the infotainment and navigation system. While it does the job well, it isn’t the most responsive and easy-to-use interface. The screen in front of the driver shows key car gauges and shows a small navigation map when on the move. With the option to purchase the dual display infotainment system, it gives the car a hi-tech look and feel. Autonomous braking, intelligent LED headlights and the driving assist plus pack are some of the safety features which are available.
For a better comparison, we will compare the base versions of both models. With a standard four-cylinder, 2.0-litre engine, the 2022 Mercedes Benz E-class reaches a maximum output of 241 horsepower. The 2022 BMW 5-Series has a 4.0-litre, 2.0-litre turbocharged engine that has a maximum output of 248 horsepower. Both models offer a wide selection of engines to meet your preference and needs. The fuel mileage of the 5-Series is better than that of the E-class, making the 5-Series a much more fuel-efficient car.
The Bottom Line
The 2022 Mercedes Benz E-class is an excellent car and offers many new features and design improvements from its predecessors. However, the car pales in comparison to the 2022 BMW 5-Series in many categories – better fuel-efficiency and infotainment system. The 2022 BMW 5-Series is just that much better.
