2019 Mercedes-Benz E 300 vs 2019 Lexus GS 350
Mercedes-Benz and Lexus go together like the Colts and the Texans. They’ve both achieved a lot of success, and each head-to-head comparison leaves a bath of metaphorical blood behind. Today we’re going to look at two of the most popular midsize luxury sedans in the industry to see which is really a better value. Check out the 2019 Mercedes-Benz E 300 vs 2019 Lexus GS 350!
When the sun comes up and it’s time to head to work, nothing heightens your drive quite like a luxury sedan. The engineers at Mercedes-Benz understand this, and that’s why they’ve added comfort and convenience features like front power lumbar with a massaging feature and interior ambient lighting as well as heated and ventilated seats. See how the E 300 compares to the GS 350 in the table below!

Is the E 300 a better choice than the GS 350?
We’ll welcome a debate that counters our stance on the question, but to us, it’s hard to match the features listed in the E 300. Sure, performance is similar in these two models, but the E 300 edges out the GS 350 in regards to interior comfort and convenience. It has dual 12.3-inch infotainment/driver display screens, which is far better than the conventional screens offered in the GS 350. On these screens you’ll be easily able to access everything from navigation routes to entertainment features and climate control, just to name a few. In addition to that, the E 300 comes standard with the Mercedes-Benz-exclusive Car-to-X Communication technology. This system will alert the driver if something comes up that might be an obstacle toward reaching their destination, such as a traffic jam, road construction, inclement weather, or things of that sort. Lexus doesn’t offer that in the GS 350.
