No matter which version of the E-Class you select, standard features include heated seats, which are part of an options package on the BMW 5 Series. Best of all, the E-Class Coupe & Sedan offer an available panoramic glass roof for a more open-air feeling than you can get in the 2021 BMW 5 Series.

2021 Mercedes-Benz E-Class vs. 2021 BMW 5 Series: Performance

With more standard horsepower, more standard torque and a more sophisticated standard suspension, the 2021 Mercedes-Benz E-Class simply gives you better performance for your money than the 2021 BMW 5 Series. Both cars are powered by turbocharged four-cylinder engines at the entry level, but you get an additional 7 horsepower and 16 lb-ft of torque in the E-Class. The 2021 Mercedes-Benz E-Class also comes standard with a selective damping suspension. The firmness of the suspension reacts in real time to your current driving style. A similar suspension setup is available on the 5 Series, but it'll cost you thousands extra as an option.

2021 Mercedes-Benz E-Class vs. 2021 BMW 5 Series: Safety

Some exclusive safety options can provide a level of protection in the 2021 Mercedes-Benz E-Class that you won't find on the 2021 BMW 5 Series. For instance, the cutting-edge PRESAFE® Impulse Side system is a chamber of air in the vehicle's seats. When a side collision is detected, these rapidly inflate to gently move occupants away from the doors, reducing the likelihood of severe injury. You can also add Active Speed Limit Assist, which enables forward facing cameras to detect posted speed limit signs, and store the current speed limit conveniently in the dashboard. So you can focus on the road ahead, not scanning for road signs. None of these safety innovations are available on the 2021 BMW 5 Series.
