1996 Mercedes-Benz E-Class E 320Review
Overall:

A Great Ride In Luxury — Handles the horrible roads of Arlington, VA with comfort and ease. Wish I had found it sooner!

Cons: Sluggish off the line compared to my old Cadillac Allante

vs1996 Lexus LS 400 Base
1996 Mercedes-Benz E-Class E 320 winning categories:
  • Power
  • Handling
  • Looks/Style
  • Front Seats
  • Back Seats
  • Cargo Capacity
  • Family Car
  • Value
  • Would Buy
Power Ranked 1996 Lexus LS 400 Base better.
"A car with a 260hp motor obviously is more powerful than one heavier car with an anemic 217hp motor."
Handling Ranked 1996 Lexus LS 400 Base worse.
"The MB steering has better road feedback than that of the Lexus"
Looks/Style Ranked 1996 Lexus LS 400 Base worse.
"The 3-point star has been a sign of legendary mark since 1909. Lexus as a luxury brand was only introduced in 1989. It is obvious all the exterior aspects surrounding a Mercedes shows a more mature and stately presence than one which is 80 years junior."
Front Seats Ranked 1996 Lexus LS 400 Base better.
"My opinion is only a personal one as I understand the seats in an MB is principally designed to fit adults of bigger stature than an average Asian."
Back Seats Ranked 1996 Lexus LS 400 Base better.
"My opinion is only a personal one as I understand the seats in an MB is principally designed to fit adults of bigger stature than an average Asian."
Cargo Capacity Ranked 1996 Lexus LS 400 Base better.
"The footprint of the trunk is about similar size, but the Lexus trunk is deeper by a touch."
Family Car Ranked 1996 Lexus LS 400 Base better.
"For a base model, the Lexus offers almost everything over and above that in an MB base. To get an equivalent in an MB one would need to spend a couple thousands more."
Value Ranked 1996 Lexus LS 400 Base better.
"According to Consumer Report, the reliability rating of Lexus is much better than average as opposed to MB being average."
Would Buy Ranked 1996 Lexus LS 400 Base better.
"Typically, MB has lost its glory of being one of the most reliable brands. The reliability arena that is pretty well dominated by Lexus. I used to drive an MB 420 SEL, but now she is retired in my garage waiting to be rescued by a knowledgeable mechanic."
