A 2018 BMW 5 SERIES vs 2018 MERCEDES BENZ E-CLASS COMPARISON:

Luxury car shoppers in and around Chicago for a midsize sedan can find plenty of options on the lot at Elmhurst BMW. Both the 5 Series and the E-Class combine compact driving dimensions, generous and well-appointed interior space, and attractive fuel economy to make the daily commute or a longer adventure a study in comfort. In this 2018 BMW 5 Series vs 2018 Mercedes-Benz E-Class comparison, we are looking at the midsize sedan offerings from two heavy-hitting German brands.


While these models bring a lot of value and quality to the road, the standard 2018 BMW 530i offers an immediate level of value and performance that the starting 2018 Mercedes-Benz E 300 struggles to match. Even though these two base models have a similar starting price, the BMW offers advantages in cargo space, fuel economy, and even in engine power. Both of these models seat five passengers and offer attractive styling.
