When you’re looking for the best luxury and performance you can find in a sedan, you have a few contenders. But between the two major names, the 2017 Mercedes E-Class and the 2017 BMW 5-Series, which option offers the most impressive package?

The BMW 5-Series recently received a nice redesign. Its new body is sleeker than the last and 200 pounds lighter, but also slightly larger for increased passenger room. The Mercedes E-Class does have a large trunk space and underwent its own redesigns, but on the inside the 2017 version isn’t much different than its predecessors. Plus, extras like the 12.3-inch display with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto will cost you a pretty penny more.

The 2017 BMW 5-Series, on the other hand, has updated its cabin to include elegant design details like a slimmer steering wheel and a leather-covered center console, which hosts its own touchscreen with smartphone compatibility.

When it comes to driving these two sedans, it’s a close call from some angles. However, the 5-Series does offer more options, including two separate diesel engines, plus a plug-in hybrid option. Both the E-Class and the 5-Series can offer peppy, sporty rides that will satisfy a need for speed, but we find that the BMW makes for smoother handling and timely shifts, thanks to its 8-speed transmission.

It’s clear that based on the facts we’re in favor of the BMW 5-Series. The best way to make your judgment is to come see for yourself. Stop in at Habberstad BMW of Bayshore to take a test drive of the 2017 5-Series and see why we think it’s the winner.
