2016 Mercedes-Benz E-Class vs. 2015 BMW 528 Review

Comparison Review

Comfort
The Mercedes-Benz E-Class offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the BMW 528 with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. The BMW 528 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 Mercedes-Benz E-Class as you will with the BMW 528, 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). The Mercedes-Benz E-Class will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the BMW 528, which has a much lower MSRP. Another consideration is the Destination Charge, which is a standard charge for transporting the vehicle to the dealer from where it's built. In this case, the Mercedes-Benz E-Class will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the BMW 528.

Dimensions
The Mercedes-Benz E-Class is about the same width as the BMW 528. When looking at overall length, the Mercedes-Benz E-Class takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the BMW 528.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Mercedes-Benz E-Class does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the BMW 528.

Handling
The Mercedes-Benz E-Class has a smaller turning radius than the BMW 528, allowing you to more easily maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Mercedes-Benz E-Class has a much more powerful engine than the BMW 528. However, something you should consider is that higher horsepower engines often command higher insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the Mercedes-Benz E-Class and the BMW 528. The Mercedes-Benz E-Class has less cargo capacity than the BMW 528, which is okay if you don't need to move a lot in one trip.

Warranty
The Mercedes-Benz E-Class comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the BMW 528.
