BMW 5 Series vs Mercedes E-Class 2018 review – which is best? | Head2Head


The new BMW 5 Series has arrived. But is it better than the Mercedes E-Class? To find out I put the two premium saloons head-to-head in a series of tests. I’ll compare their design, interior, technology, space and practicality as well as seeing how they both drive. The Mercedes smashed the previous BMW 5 Series in 2016. But will it be able to defend its crown against this all-new 5 Series which actually shares a lot of its parts and technology with the larger, more expensive 7 Series? Watch to find out.

  1. In the process of swapping my Merc out for the BMW 5 series. oddly enough, I like the way the BMW handles much better than the Merc. I prefer more plurality/duality (luxury and comfort). There are days when I like to drive with a purpose and days where leisure is preferred. From having owed a Merc, it makes me feel older (I'm 30). As I actually get older, I appreciate understated luxury a bit more. The Merc is definitely a softer, more luxurious ride… In the end, it really comes down to your car suiting your personality. A year over year cost to own comparison would probably edge one over the other… which my gut tells me Merc wins there. But from what I've heard and seen, it seems BMW has made big improvements and more competitive on that front as well.

  2. i have the 5 series and it is lovely , the entertainment system is way better and the quality and comfort are amazing, spacious as well

  3. all these new cars are so lack of left legs room because of the ulyra silly wide center console, the heard rooms are ridiculous getting lower cramped…

  4. I like the e class but I don’t want people trying to get in the back thinking I’m a cab.

  5. Is this guy dim? Of course the merc pulls away, its a bigger engine, the e class has 2.2 litre engine vs the 2.0 litre engine of the 5 series, what's he in about?

  6. He said more positive things about the merc than the bmw yet he chose to give the win to the 5 series🤷🏼‍♂️. Both are great cars though!

  7. BMW 5 series looks better than Merc E class to me ,boot can’t fit anything.. two boxes and it’s done ! Back seat in BMW is definitely not comfy for the big and elderly , though front seats are very comfortable and do offer decent options ,haven’t tested the same in E class yet… but why would you race a BMW in comfort mode ?

  8. Comparing a sportier M5 version against the Air ride Mercedes..comments on ride are irrelevant..
