2016 BMW 435 vs. 2017 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
Due to its greater rear head- and legroom, backseat passengers will be able to stretch out a lot more in the BMW 435 than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class. The BMW 435 will be a favorite with taller drivers due to its greater front head- and legroom than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the BMW 435 as you will with the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, as they get the same number of miles per tank of gas.

Cost
There are a lot of factors to consider when calculating the overall cost of a vehicle. The main consideration is Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP). When looking only at MSRP, the BMW 435 will have less of an impact on your bank account than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. The BMW 435 will cost more in transportation costs than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

Dimensions
Since the BMW 435 is much wider than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, finding a wide enough spot in a parking lot may be a bit more challenging. When looking at overall length, the BMW 435 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

Drivetrain
With its lower torque, the BMW 435 doesn't do as good a job transmitting power to its wheels as the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

Handling
The BMW 435 has a larger turning radius than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
The BMW 435 has less horsepower than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, so it will probably be somewhat slower.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the BMW 435 and the Mercedes-Benz E-Class. With its significantly greater cargo capacity, the BMW 435 will be able to haul more equipment or luggage than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

Warranty
The BMW 435 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.
