Performance Specs

The 2017 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Sedan is offered with two different engines. The first comes in the form of a turbocharged 2.0L inline-four that makes 241 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque. When you want more power than that, you can also opt for an AMG® bi-turbo V6 engine, in which case you’ll get an exhilarating 396 hp and 384 lb-ft of torque.

The base engine on the Lexus GS 200t is also a turbocharged 2.0L inline-four, but it only makes 241 hp and 258 lb-ft of torque. The Lexus GS 350 offers the only other engine, a 3.5L V6 that makes only 311 hp and 280 lb-ft of torque. There’s also a hybrid powertrain available, but that’s in a different segment.

Advanced Safety Features

Whether you choose to go with the Mercedes-Benz E-Class or the 2017 Lexus GS, you’ll have access to a variety of advanced driver assistance and safety features, including blind spot monitoring, rear cross traffic alert, and an emergency telematics system with automatic crash notification. The fully redesigned E-Class sedan stands out from the pack, though, with premium standard safety features like Car-to-X Communication, Crosswind Assist, and PRESAFE® collision preparation.

Standard Tech and Comfort Features

Both of these models reflect their status as elite luxury sedans with standard tech features like a 12.3-inch multi-media display screen, an advanced navigation system, voice controls, smartphone app integration, and Bluetooth®* phone and audio connectivity, as well as convenience features like dual-zone automatic climate control and premium leatherette upholstery. The Mercedes-Benz model sticks out from the Lexus model in other ways, though. Consider the E-Class available 14-speaker Burmester surround-sound stereo system, compared against the Lexus GS only available 12-speaker stereo.
