Your commute should be just as thrilling as your destination. With sedans like the 2022 Mercedes-Benz E-Class and the BMW 5 Series, it’s easy to enhance your drive. However, when we look at the performance of each model, it’s clear that one pulls ahead of the other in terms of power.
The 2022 E-Class has engine options that can provide an exciting drive no matter where you’re heading next. After all, the entry-level 2022 E-Class carries a 2.0L 4-cylinder turbo engine that puts out 255 horsepower and 273 lb-ft of torque. That’s the kind of performance that can make you want to get behind the wheel every morning.
There’s little doubt the 5 Series is powerful in its own right—it’s no sluggish vehicle. It carries a 2.0L BMW TwinPower turbocharged engine that makes 248 horsepower and 257 lb-ft of torque, close to what the 2022 E-Class is capable of, but slightly less powerful.

Want to ensure your travels are safe? All-wheel drive capability is an optional add-on for both cars, allowing you to get better traction while driving.
Staying connected on the go is important. Whether you’re on your way to work or pulling up directions to the vacation home you’ve rented, both the 2022 E-Class and the 5 Series have a lot to offer.
The 2022 Mercedes-Benz E-Class has that special human touch, with the intuitive controls on the standard Mercedes-Benz User Experience (MBUX) putting all kinds of features right at your fingertips.
The digital cockpit carries standard dual 12.3-inch displays that include a center touchscreen.
MBUX can also listen to you and learn what you’re saying. All you need to do is say “Hey, Mercedes” with a function following it, and the MBUX can do things like turn on the air conditioning or help find a restaurant.
The BMW 5 Series comes standard with the Live Cockpit Professional setup, which has a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster and 12.3-inch central information display, similar to the 2022 E-Class. The iDrive 7.0 system can be operated by voice, touchscreen, or the iDrive touchpad Controller, putting you in complete control of your 5 Series.

Power front seats with 3-position memory come standard on the 2022 Mercedes-Benz E-Class, with available heated functionality (standard on Coupes and Cabriolets). Ventilated front seats can be added, too, to keep you cool on any hot days.
