2020 Mercedes-Benz E 350 vs 2020 BMW 530i
It seems as though we’re always comparing Mercedes-Benz to BMW, but there’s a good reason for that. These two are heated rivals and go at each other head to head pretty often. We made this comparison between the 2020 Mercedes-Benz E 350 vs 2020 BMW 530i to help you decide between the midsize sedans offered by each. For Mercedes-Benz, you’re getting the innovative E-Class complete with more powerful 2.0L inline-4 turbocharged engine, which gets more horsepower than last years model (241 in 2019 vs 255 in 2020). That’s more than the 530i offers as well, and you’ll also get more torque in the E 350 too for a quicker acceleration. Shifting gears in the E 350 will be more seamless as well since it has a 9-speed automatic transmission. Check out the table below for more comparisons!

Highlights in the 2020 E 350
Unfortunately, we don’t yet know everything there is to know about the 2020 E 350. The engine upgrade in the base model is a big change though, as the upgrade in horsepower brings with it an upgrade on the nameplate (the 2019 E 300 was the base E-Class model, while the E 350 is the base E-Class model for 2020). Variety is the name of the game with Mercedes-Benz, so even if the E 350 isn’t the best choice for you, you can always upgrade to another model in the E-Class lineup. There are four different engine options available within the E-Class. The base 2.0L 4-cylinder turbo will be the most efficient, but there are more powerful engine options available with the 3.0L 6-cylinder, a 3.0L V6, and a 4.0L V8. Some of the other highlights you’ll find available in the E-Class for the 2020 model year include a 64-color ambient lighting system, various drive-assist systems, and the Mercedes-Benz User Experience (MBUX) system.
We won’t say that the E 350 is better than the 530i, as that decision is totally up to you to decide on. For more information on the 2019 Mercedes-Benz E 350 or to schedule a test drive, get in touch with our team here at World Wide Motors today!
