2017 Mercedes-Benz AMG® E-Class VS Lexus GS F

The Mercedes-Benz E-Class and the Lexus GS are the entry ways into the full-size sedan segment for their respective brands. They are spacious, sporty, and above all else, sophisticated, and although both are have their advantages, we believe the E-Class is the better car, and we will tell you why. For this comparison, we are focusing on the flagship GS, the GS F Sport, which is most closely matched in price by the 2017 Mercedes-Benz AMG® E 43. 

First, we look at the body design. With a microscope, it is obvious that the E-Class is longer by .32 inches. Actually, the dimensions of these vehicles differ by less than an inch all the way around. On the inside, more of the same. Both cabins are littered with leather and lights galore. From the inside looking out, a difference between the two is imperceptible. Let's start the engine.

Mercedes-Benz AMG® Handcrafted 3.0L V6 biturbo Engine

Mercedes-Benz takes horsepower very seriously. When it needs a performance engine done the right way, the AMG® way, it enlists one engineer at the Mercedes-Benz AMG® factory to hand-build the engine piece by piece. This dedication to excellence is what allows Mercedes-Benz vehicles to make more power with less matter. In this case, the 3.0L V6 in the E-Class is up against an intimidating 5.0L V8. The V8 has almost 75 more horsepower, but with the forced induction from the turbos, the E 43 makes almost the same amount of torque, and accelerates at the exact rate as the V8 monster. 

With a smaller engine, the E-Class is also more efficient, completing the trifecta. If you have any questions about why the 2017 Mercedes-Benz AMG® E4 3 beats the Lexus GS F Sport every time, come see us at Mercedes-Benz of Arrowhead today!
