2019 Mercedes-Benz E-Class vs. 2019 Porsche 718

The 2019 Mercedes-Benz E-Class is a popular luxury mid-size vehicle. Almost every driver knows about its reputation as one of the most capable vehicles in its class. It also helped that the company never stops upgrading it with every release. The styling cues also become more sophisticated through the years, complementing the advanced technologies that are also upgraded almost yearly.

The esteemed carmaker made sure that the 2019 Porsche 718 will be well-applauded as an entry-level sports car. Its configurations are rightfully impressive but are they enough to put up against the latest E-Class?

Design & Style

The sophisticated exterior of the E-Class features a voluptuous shape. It is very much similar to the classic Mercedes-Benz vehicle in terms of styling. The only difference is that with the 2019 version, the E-Class has modern details, like the longer roof, to make it look current. It did not only make the exterior look improved, but it also gave the E-Class a sophisticated and sharper appeal.

The design cues of the 718 are based on its evolved powertrain. It follows an elegant shape that is proportioned. Sculpted lines were added to highlight their uniqueness. There are curvy lines at the rear that is wrapped around the slightly rising tail.

Technology & Safety

Standard equipment for the E-Class’ infotainment is the COMAND® system. It can be integrated with the latest Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Aside from an intuitive audio-navigation system, modern amenities, like the optional fragrance diffuser, are appreciated additions.

While the infotainment for the 718 is easy to control, the hard buttons and cheap-looking plastic pieces prevent it from becoming great. It also lacks Android Auto integration that can be an issue for non-Apple device users.


The E-Class offers a couple of performance levels for its engine. You can go tame with the base 241-hp engine or go wild with the V6 engine for as much as 603 hp. It is effortlessly powerful and long drives will feel comfortable with the competent handling capabilities.

The 718 has a 300 hp engine under the hood of the base model. High-performance variants, like the Cayman GTS, have an increased power output at 365 hp. The engine gives the car a smooth shove during acceleration. It is responsive overall and is precise to drive.

The Bottom Line

The 2019 Porsche 718 flourishes with its elegant yet sporty exterior details. What it failed to do is put an effort to improve its infotainment system. It is not only confusing to use with its entire buttons, but the infotainment system also looks unfit to the 718’s posh interior features. As for the 2019 Mercedes-Benz E-Class, it is always a joy to see how it easily took down the 718. Even if Porsche is known to be one of the top race car automakers, the E-Class outsmarted the 718 in terms of engine performance.
