E-Class vs. BMW 5-Series: Luxury Features 

Both the 2019 BMW 5-Series and Mercedes-Benz E-Class have luxurious interiors that Huntington Beach and Corona Del Mar drivers will love, with memory settings, telematics, and optional heated front seats.

  • 64-color LED interior lighting
  • A 12.3-inch central display
  • Wheel-mounted touch controls
  • Available cabin fragrance system

E-Class vs. BMW 5-Series: Driver Assists 

2019 BMW 5-Series: The BMW 5-Series offers BMW’s Active Protection System and Active Driving Assist, which consist of features like a pre-collision system, a driver attention monitor, and frontal collision warning. 

2019 Mercedes-Benz E-Class: The E-Class offers similar systems, but in addition, provides PRESAFE® Sound — a standard feature created to protect passengers’ hearing. It emits a “pink noise” from the audio system when a collision is likely to occur. You’ll also find Car-to-X Communication, which allows drivers to share notifications with other E-Class drivers in Laguna Beach or Costa Mesa.
