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 430 than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class. As far as headroom and legroom go, there's not much difference between the BMW 430 and the Mercedes-Benz E-Class in the front seats.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the BMW 430 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). Based on MSRP, the BMW 430 is clearly a better financial choice over 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. In this case, the BMW 430 will cost less to deliver to the dealership than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

Dimensions
The BMW 430 is about the same width as the Mercedes-Benz E-Class. When looking at overall length, the BMW 430 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

Drivetrain
The BMW 430 has much less torque than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, which generally means that it won't feel as fast or powerful.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the BMW 430 is significantly less powerful than the Mercedes-Benz E-Class. The good news is that, reportedly, cars with lower horsepower engines often have lower insurance premiums.

Utility
In terms of seating you'll be able to fit the same number of people in both the BMW 430 and the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.

Warranty
The BMW 430 comes with essentially the same basic warranty as the Mercedes-Benz E-Class.
