2015 M5 Stands Up to the Competition

2015 BMW M5 Engine

There are few sedans on the market that feature the same amount of power and performance that the 2015 M5 does. When it comes to comparing the M5 to other vehicles in its segment, the M5 pulls ahead nearly every single time. The 2015 Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG Sedan is one such competitor. In a head to head comparison, the 2015 BMW M5 comes out on top. Check out a few of those ways, below.

  • Power - One of the most important aspects to consider in a supercar, the M5 boasts 560 horsepower  while the E63 AMG Sedan stops short at 550. The M5 also features a rear-wheel drive system, allowing for more control than the Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG sedan’s all-wheel drive system.
  • Comfort - The interior of the M5 features standard adjustable lumbar support, a rear parking aid, HID headlights, and a rear spoiler. The E63 AMG does not offer any of those features standard, despite the fact that it has the exact same starting MSRP of the 2015 M5.
  • Warranty - The M5 and the E63 AMG both offer a similar warranty program. Where BMW beats out Mercedes-Benz, is in the corrosion and maintenance warranties. The M5 comes with a 12 year and unlimited miles corrosion warranty, and an included no-cost maintenance time of 4 years, or 50,000 miles. The E63 AMG only offers a 4-year or unlimited miles corrosion warranty, and no included maintenance time.
