The 2022 5 Series and the 2022 E-Class offer seating for five in remarkably comfy seats. These are luxury cars, so you can expect premium upholstery for a luxurious look and feel. Plus, with just over 41 inches of legroom in the front seats of both cars, tall drivers have plenty of room and can easily fit in.
However, you may feel more comfortable in the front row of the BMW when you consider the other dimensions. In the 5 Series, you have 40.7 inches of headroom and 58.7 inches of shoulder room. In the E-Class, you get just 37.3 inches of headroom and 57.8 inches of shoulder room in the front row.
The BMW provides more cargo room, too, with 18.7 cubic feet. This is compared to the 13.1 cubic feet of trunk space found inside the Mercedes-Benz. As a result, you’ll have much room in the 5 Series for groceries, golf clubs, or luggage.
With the 5 Series and E-Class being luxury models, you can also expect there to be plenty of creature comforts and cutting-edge tech inside each sedan.
This includes optional heated and ventilated front seats to stay comfortable year-round. Plus, with standard multi-zone automatic climate control, you and your co-pilot can both adjust the cabin temperature. That way, you can each stay as warm or cool as you’d like.
The BMW 5 Series and Mercedes-Benz E-Class also come standard with Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ to make it easy to use your favorite mobile apps without handling your phone while driving.
Whether you’re making a phone call or listening to some tunes, you’ll hear everything clearly, thanks to the 16-speaker Harman Kardon® Surround Sound Audio System offered in the 5 Series.
Meanwhile, the E-Class offers a 13-speaker Burmester® Surround Sound system. As a result, your media options may not sound as sharp as they would in the BMW.
The 5 Series and the E-Class provide powerful performances while also handling well on any type of road.
The 2022 5 Series comes standard with a 2.0L TwinPower Turbo 4-cylinder engine that delivers 248 horsepower and 257 lb-ft of torque. It can also go from 0 to 60 MPH in 5.9 seconds.
For even quicker acceleration, there’s the available 4.4L BMW M Performance TwinPower Turbo V8 engine. This engine churns out 523 horsepower and 553 lb-ft of torque. Plus, it can go from 0 to 60 MPH in a staggering 3.6 seconds.
Meanwhile, the E-Class offers a 3.0L 6-cylinder engine that delivers just 362 horsepower and 369 lb-ft of torque. Not only is this the most powerful engine in the lineup, but it also takes the vehicle nearly five seconds to get to 60 MPH.
