2019 Mercedes-Benz E Class vs. Its Competition

2019 Mercedes-Benz AMG E 53 coupe
Andrew Ganz Andrew Ganz Senior Editor

No automaker matches the breadth and depth of the Benz E-Class range.

Audi comes closest with its A6 and A7, two sublime takes on mid-size luxury that can be mild or manic between basic turbo-4 and RS guise.

The BMW 5-Series is more focused than before and its right-priced plug-in hybrid trim is tempting.

The understated Volvo S90 makes its mark on its serene styling and spacious rear seat—don’t buy any luxury sedan without driving one.

Cadillac and Lexus feel poised to exit the sedan market in favor of crossovers, but they haven’t pulled the trigger yet.
