At first glance, the 2020 Lexus GS may seem like a better value for San Jose drivers than the 2019 Mercedes-Benz E-Class — but looks can be deceiving. Dig a little deeper and you’ll see that the new E-Class delivers riveting power and luxury features. Meanwhile, the Lexus GS struggles to keep up. Compare the Mercedes-Benz E-Class vs. Lexus GS below to decide for yourself!

E-Class vs. Lexus GS: Performance 

The Lexus ES comes equipped with a standard 3.5L V6 engine that outputs 302 hp and 267 lb-ft of torque, and the Mercedes-Benz E-Class has a standard 241-hp 2.0L inline-4 turbo engine that generates 273 lb-ft of torque. While the initial ES base engine is stronger than the E-Class base engine, it can’t compare to the strongest of the E-Class lineup. The performance-ready AMG® E 63 S features a handcrafted AMG® 4.0L V8 engine which produces an enthralling 603 hp. The strongest engine the 2020 Lexus ES has can only manage 302 hp.

In addition to stronger engine options,  E-Class drivers can expect a smoother ride around Newark compared to the Lexus ES. The Mercedes-Benz E-Class comes equipped with more gears thanks to a 9-speed automatic transmission; meanwhile, the ES has an 8-speed automatic transmission.

E-Class vs. Lexus GS: Premium Features 

Although it’s more expensive than the GS, the Mercedes-Benz E-Class offers tons of technologies you can’t get on other luxury models. Case in point: the Lexus GS. You’ll get driver comfort and convenience standard on the E-Class, while these features cost extra or aren’t available on the Lexus GS: 

  • Car-to-X Communication: E-Class drivers in and around Alameda can send/receive traffic updates, weather notifications, and hazard warnings. 
  • 64-Color Ambient Lighting: Use the COMAND® display to choose from 64 selectable colors for the interior LED system. 
  • Driver Memory Settings: Enjoy standard power front seats with memory and 4-way lumbar support on the E-Class; with the GS, you have to pay extra for this feature. 
  • Android Auto™: While both vehicles offer standard Apple CarPlay®, only the E-Class comes with standard Android Auto smartphone integration as well.
