When it comes to luxury sedans, drivers in Sacramento will be looking for a few particular characteristics. Modern features, confident safety, and assured handling are all important, and at first glace, both the 2017 Mercedes-Benz E-Class and the 2017 BMW 5-Series could meet your needs in those areas. Let’s take a closer look so you can decide which vehicle is best for your family.

Modern Safety Systems

Active safety features are becoming common in luxury sedans, and the E-Class is packed with high-tech systems. If a collision is about to occur, the PRESAFE® system moves the front passenger seat, closes the windows, and retracts the seatbelt to minimize harm. In addition, the available PRESAFE® Sound feature actually reduces hearing damage in the event of an accident. The mbrace® system can even automatically notify emergency services if an accident has occurred. Sadly, the BMW 5-Series includes none of these features.

Reviews

The luxury sedan class is notoriously competitive, and the automotive press has examined them to find out which one drives the best. While the experienced reviewers at U.S. News and World Reports praised the 5 Series for its fuel economy, they noted that, “it doesn’t have the nimble handling of some rivals.” Meanwhile, the critics at Edmunds wrote that in the 5-Series, “A sophisticated suspension, powerful brakes, and precise but lightweight steering further contribute to the E 300’s ultra-refined feel.” For the most comfortable drive, you can turn to the E-Class.
