Comparison Review

Comfort
The Mercedes-Benz AMG E 53 offers rear passengers about the same space to stretch out as the BMW 530 with comparable rear head- and legroom in both vehicles. Offering just a little more front head- and legroom than the Mercedes-Benz AMG E 53, drivers may find the BMW 530 a little roomier and somewhat more comfortable.

Convenience
You'll be making about the same number of stops at the gas station with the Mercedes-Benz AMG E 53 as you will with the BMW 530, 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 AMG E 53 will definitely make more of a dent in your wallet than the BMW 530, 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. The Mercedes-Benz AMG E 53 and the BMW 530 have similar Destination Charges.

Dimensions
The Mercedes-Benz AMG E 53 is about the same width as the BMW 530. When looking at overall length, the Mercedes-Benz AMG E 53 takes up about the same amount of space in your garage as the BMW 530.

Drivetrain
Due to its much higher torque, the engine of the Mercedes-Benz AMG E 53 does a much better job of transmitting power to the wheels than the BMW 530.

Handling
The Mercedes-Benz AMG E 53 has a larger turning radius than the BMW 530, making it slightly more difficult to maneuver in and out of tight spots.

Performance
When it comes to horsepower, the Mercedes-Benz AMG E 53 has a much more powerful engine than the BMW 530. 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 AMG E 53 and the BMW 530. The Mercedes-Benz AMG E 53 has significantly less cargo room than the BMW 530, which may be a concern if you do a lot of warehouse shopping.
