Midsize sedans are slowly getting pushed to the roadside in favor of their smaller sedan and larger SUV counterparts, but the one sedan that is still prominent near Gilbert, AZ, is the Mercedes-Benz E-Class. So, we are going to take a look at the 2020 E-Class and the 2020 BMW 530i to see where these two popular sedans differ, and where they are quite similar. Let’s check it out!
To begin, we are going to look at the power these models offer. The E 350 offers a bit more power than the 530i. It has a 2.0-Liter Inline-4 turbo engine that pumps out 255 horsepower and 273 lb.-ft. of torque. While the 530i isn’t far behind with its 248 horsepower, it does have a noticeably less 258 lb.-ft. of torque. Both models have a rear wheel drivetrain. However, the E 350 does have an attractive 9G-TRONIC® transmission, whereas the 530i only has an 8-speed automatic transmission.

That’s why it’s a relief to see both models have optional cooled and ventilated seats. However, there are many more features on the E-Class that we haven’t included in the table, such as the 64-color ambient colors, and plenty of driver-assist features like Active Brake Assist.
