2018 Mercedes-Benz E 300 vs 2018 Toyota Avalon

2018 Mercedes-Benz E 300 vs 2018 Toyota Avalon

In yet another matchup between unassuming models, Mercedes-Benz takes on the luxury flagship sedan offered by Toyota. Sure, these guys might not appear to be able to drive down the same road with the same kinds of features, but the Avalon is marketed as being a luxury sedan so it’s only right to see what they got. Take a look as we compare the 2018 Mercedes-Benz E 300 vs 2018 Toyota Avalon.

Even in its top trim, the Avalon can’t quite match up to the performance put out by the E 300. While the Avalon Limited gets more horsepower, the E 300 powers ahead with features not found in its rival including three more transmission speeds, an adaptive variable suspension, and automatic load leveling. Performance isn’t all that’s offered by the E 300. Take a look at some additional comparisons below!

Specs and Features in the 2018 E 300

Drivers looking for that extra bit of luxury will find it in the E 300. While it does sport a higher MSRP, that’s simply due to the fact that it offers so much more than the Avalon’s top trim does. You can’t expect to pay less for a luxury car that is one of the best in the industry, but you don’t have to pay an arm and a leg either. The E 300 comes with features not included in the Avalon such as a massaging lumbar feature for the driver, allowing you to relive that last bit of stress on your way home from work. Other features in the E 300 not available in the Avalon include:

  • Adaptive variable suspension

  • Genuine wood trim

  • Power sunshade for roof

  • Front power headrest

  • Electronic parking aid

  • Armrest storage compartment

  • PRESAFE® safety
