  • Transmission: The LS 460 engine comes paired with an 8-speed automatic. The E 300, on the other hand, gets a velvety 9-speed automatic for lightning-fast gear changes.

E 300 Interior


The LS 460 and E 300 include a wide array of similar luxury features, such as a power-adjustable driver seat with memory, automatic climate control, ambient interior lighting, HD Radio™, Bluetooth®* technology, and a multi-function steering-wheel. The E 300, however, offers a few standard interior features not available on the Lexus LS 460, including:

  • 64-color ambient interior lighting
  • Touch Controls for the steering wheel
  • Car-to-X Communication
  • Apple CarPlay®/Android Auto™

Safety Features

Both sedans go the extra mile to keep you safe on Costa Mesa and Irvine roads. Unlike the Lexus LS 460, the Mercedes-Benz E 300 comes standard with a host of driver assistance technologies:

  • ATTENTION ASSIST®: During long drives, standard ATTENTION ASSIST® monitors driving behaviors and scans for signs of drowsiness.
  • Car-to-X Communication: This feature allows E-Class drivers around Huntington Beach to send and receive traffic and weather updates.
  • PREAFE® Sound: Linked to PRESAFE®, this system activates if an imminent collision is detected and plays a “pink noise” via the audio system to prep your ears for the sound of an impact.
