The sights and sounds around Rochester Hills, Oakland Township, and Sterling Heights, MI, come alive in new ways behind the wheel of a luxury sedan. To elevate your daily driving experience, you first need to choose your next high-end model.

Both the 2022 BMW 5 Series and the Mercedes Benz E-Class offer powerful engines and intuitive infotainment systems designed with the driver in mind, so how do you know which one will be a better automotive match? Our team at BMW of Rochester Hills created this 2022 BMW 5 Series vs. Mercedes Benz E-Class comparison to help you decide. Read on!

2022 BMW 5Series vs Mercedes-Benz E Class: Stand-Out Performance

When it comes to adding extra thrills to every curve on the road, it all starts with the engine. The BMW 5 Series offers four unique motors, so you can pick the perfect amount of power:

  • 2.0L BMW TwinPower Turbo 248-horsepower engine
  • 4.4L BMW M TwinPower Turbo 523-horsepower V8 engine
  • 2.0L BMW TwinPower Turbo 288-total-horsepower gasoline engine & electric motor plug-in hybrid
  • 3.0L BMW M TwinPower Turbo 335-horsepower engine with eBoost 48V mild hybrid technology

In comparison, in the Mercedes-Benz E Class, you have the option to choose from one of two 255-horsepower 2.0L motors or a 362-horsepower 3.0L engine. As you can see, if you want to maximize horsepower and quick acceleration, the 2022 BMW 5 Series engine line-up offers much more than its Mercedes-Benz competitor.

Along with that, if you are interested in optimizing efficiency on every drive, the BMW 5 Series plug-in hybrid configuration is ready to take you the extra mile-stop-free. Unfortunately, you won't find a plug-in hybrid option in the Mercedes-Benz E Class trim levels.

BMW 5 Series vs Mercedes-Benz E Class: Convenient Cargo

Another component to consider when choosing your luxury car is cargo room. With a larger trunk, you'll have more space for shopping bags, luggage, and even antique furniture finds to add a distinct and elegant touch to your current décor.

In the 2022 Mercedes-Benz E Class, you will have 13.1 cubic feet of trunk space to work with, and in the 2022 BMW 5 Series, you will have 18.7 cubic feet of cargo room. Over 5.5 cubic feet of additional space in the BMW will make it easier to fit whatever you want to transport as you cruise around town or get away to the lake house for the weekend.

2022 BMW 5 Series vs Mercedes-Benz E Class: Intuitive Interior

In the cabin of these two luxurious sedans, you'll also have a world of connectivity and infotainment at your fingertips. Both models feature expansive 12.3-inch touchscreen displays through which you can do everything from answering a call to changing the song, following directions, and more.

Once you choose the perfect playlist for your next drive, you'll want to feel the wind in your hair as you sway to the beat. Though both models offer an extra window to the world, the 2022 BMW 5 Series comes standard with an inspiring 2-way power glass moonroof, but you'll need to upgrade in the 2022 Mercedes Benz-E Class.

Select Your Luxury Sedan: BMW 5 Series or Mercedes-Benz E Class?

Both the 2022 BMW 5 Series and the 2022 Mercedes-Benz E Class sedans offer luxurious interiors and plush amenities. When it comes to engine power, efficiency, and cargo room, however, the BMW 5 Series clearly offers more.
