2019 Mercedes-Benz E 300 vs 2019 Kia K900
It’s not often we compare a Mercedes-Benz model to a model from a non-luxury automaker like Kia, but allow us to explain. Like many other conventional automakers, Kia is starting to dip into the luxury automotive segment with a couple models they’re promoting as luxury cars. While we admire the audacity and difficulty in doing so, it’s hard to compare favorably against a fan favorite like Mercedes-Benz that has been in the game since the combustion engine was invented by Karl Benz in 1886. Today we’re comparing the 2019 Mercedes-Benz E 300 vs 2019 Kia K900, and in it you’ll notice that while they both offer the basics when it comes to performance, the edge clearly goes to the one that has dominated the roads for years. Is the popular E-Class too much for the K900 to handle, or can Kia score a win here? Find out below!

What's In the 2019 E 300?
Mercedes-Benz gave the E 300 a redesign in 2017, much to the excitement of fans everywhere. The updated look and addition of interior luxury features was enough for drivers to be happy about, but for 2019, Mercedes-Benz was at it again adding even more features to love. The new-generation steering wheel comes with innovative Touch Control Buttons so you can control features inside without btaking your hands off the steering wheel. Safety technology was enhanced by the addition of the Driver Assistance Package, while comfort and convenience additions include the 12.3-inch Digital Instrument Cluster and Head-Up Display available as stand-alone options and new wood trim options available. As always, there are plenty of driver-assistance features made standard and infotainment options to choose from as well.
Mercedes-Benz knows luxury, so it comes as no surprise that they edge out the K900 here. Interested in seeing some additional comparisons? Get in touch with the team here at Mercedes-Benz of Indianapolis to schedule a test drive or consultation!
