Finding the perfect luxury car, SUV, or coupe in Stockton can be tricky. On the surface, Mercedes-Benz and BMW can look remarkably similar, offering many of the same amenities. But when you dig deeper, it becomes clear that one of these luxury brands gives you more value for your investment and is a better purchase overall.

Mercedes-Benz vs. BMW Reliability

When buying a premium luxury vehicle, one expects a dependable ride that offers more than just a pretty package. The Mercedes-Benz brand of vehicles does that well according to JD Power and Associates and other experts. A recent UK vehicle dependability study rated 24 manufacturers, including Mercedes-Benz and BMW. Mercedes-Benz scored well, BMW came in dead last with 192 problems per 100 vehicles.

Mercedes-Benz C-Class vs. BMW 3-Series

Not only does the Mercedes-Benz C-Class C 300 Sedan deliver 61-hp and 73 lb.-ft. of torque more than the BMW 3-Series sedan, it offers larger standard brakes as well. This combination of greater power and more control makes the Mercedes-Benz C-Class a more responsive, safer ride than the BMW.

Mercedes-Benz E-Class vs. BMW 5-Series

Compare the Mercedes-Benz E-Class vs. BMW 5-Series, and you’ll find the E-Class boasts a base price that is thousands less than the BMW 5-Series, and it doesn’t skimp on power either. Both vehicles are equipped with a 2.0 L I4 engine; however, while the Mercedes-Benz generates 241-hp and 273 lb.-ft. of torque, the BMW manages just 180 hp and 255 lb.-ft. of peak torque.

Mercedes-Benz GLE vs. BMW X5

When it comes to delivering power and luxury, the 2018 Mercedes-Benz GLE 350 SUV succeeds. It offers standard genuine wood trim, available leather seats, dual power front headrests, driver and passenger massage seats, and available cooled front seats just like the 2018 BMW X5. But, the Mercedes-Benz GLE has a starting price that’s almost half that of the BMW X5.
