A vehicle with four doors and a trunk is the most popular body style in the country. The volume of sedans offered reflects the wide variety of choices. Sedans are offered from economically friendly, subcompact models to extravagant top models. Sedans can be personalized to suit anyone Sedans tend to get great fuel economy, which is particularly important for those who use their vehicles to travel numerous miles. However, fuel economy should be considered by everyone for the safety of the ecosystem.

One exceptional advantage of a Sedan is that they have a lot more headroom than other vehicles, such as crossovers or SUVs. The extra head space is usually necessary for taller drivers; therefore, it is quite important. Sedans are proven vehicles because they have been in production for ages, so everyone knows what they are buying when they purchase a sedan. One of the sedans supreme features is that it has a stylish look, and even without a backup camera, it is easy to look around the vehicle when backing up or changing lanes. Many other models of vehicles are difficult to maneuver without a backup camera. All sedans are not exactly equal; the 2017 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Sedan is comparable to the BMW 5 Series Sedan but in many ways a better buy.

The 2017 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Sedan is more than just the most advanced E-Class to date. This sedan has technologies no other vehicle has ever offered. While the BMW 5 Series Sedan is iconic for being innovative in its performance, the 2017 E-Class has innovated to a new level where vehicles can talk to each other, and look out for drivers like nothing ever seen before. Mercedes-Benz is the first to offer a vehicle can cover a driver’s ears before a crash even happens. Mercedes-Benz engineers developed PRESAFE® Sound, a technology senses an accident approaching and emits a safe noise through the audio system. This noise sets of the passengers’ natural defense against the loud noise of a collision.

The BMW 5 Series Sedan has technology such as Intelligent Voice Control that understands natural speech patterns and optional Gesture Control where drivers can use hand gestures to control many of the features of the car; however, the Mercedes-Benz E-Class Sedan is the world’s first vehicle to use X Communication technology. This technology connects the E-Class to a central information resource so that it can be able to receive updates about driving conditions. The 2017 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Sedan can also use the X Communication technology to report hazardous conditions to other E-Class Sedan drivers.

Both the Mercedes-Benz E-Class Sedan and the BMW 5 Series Sedan have innovative technologies that help with their smooth rides. The BMW 5 Series has developed Integral Active Steering. Integral Active Steering is used to improve the driving dynamics of the sedan. When driving at a lower speed, the power steering improves maneuverability for easier parking, and when driving at a quicker pace, the rear wheels turn in the same direction as the front wheels, for easier lane changes. The Mercedes-Benz E-Class Sedan has new AIR BODY CONTROL technology that uses pressurized air to create a more even ride. The technology is adaptive to help the vehicle self-level on bumpy roads. Many would suggest that the AIR BODY CONTROL technology beats the Integral Active Steering technology of the BMW in rural areas because the roads are generally very uneven.

The sedan is offered in many different models and is the number one best-selling vehicle to date. All sedans have some similar qualities making them a proven vehicle type, but some sedans have innovated to a whole new level. All drivers should stop by their local dealership and test drive the new, technologically-advanced 2017 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Sedan to see how it compares to the BMW 5 Series Sedan.
