Mercedes-Benz and Lexus share similar goals. Obviously, selling cars is a big part of it, but it is also much more than that. Designing, engineering, and manufacturing cars is one of the most popular forms of art in the world. Cars are the biggest indicator of where, or when, you are, and cars shape the future of design for other things too such as computers and boats. When it comes to the 2017 Mercedes-Benz E-Class and the Lexus ES, we have two different, and marvelous, representations of modern art. Which one looks better in the frame that is your garage?
From the outside, a simple ruler will show you that the E-Class is just a little bit bigger than the ES. The most significant difference in size is the almost 1 inch difference in width, but the E-Class is actually longer, taller, AND wider than the E-Class. This provides drivers with a little more interior room and overall vehicle stability.

One of the things that sets Mercedes-Benz apart from the rest of the industry this year is Mercedes-Benz DRIVE PILOT®. For now, it is only available on the E-Class and it allows drivers to sit back and relax on their commute to work. Basically, DRIVE PILOT® is a modified version of Mercedes-Benz DISTRONIC PLUS® that can follow the flow of traffic, even when there are no posted lines or signs, or even a road itself!
The Lexus ES does have autonomous driver-assistance features available, but they are no where near the level of sophistication that the E-Class has achieved. If you have any questions about why the 2017 Mercedes-Benz E-Class is one of the best full-size sedans on the market for 2017, leave a comment below or stop by for a test drive today!
