The Mercedes E-Class is very well equipped and available with a great range of engines, from efficient diesels, to tax-friendly plug-in hybrids and punchy petrols. It's pretty quiet and comfortable on the motorway, too, but the ride could be better around town and, while the boot is big, the rear passenger compartment isn't, relative to its rivals. Overall, the BMW 5 Series is a better car to drive, has a better infotainment system and is better built inside.

The 302bhp E300de combines the long-range efficiency of a diesel engine (it'll easily average over 50mpg using both power sources) with an official 34-mile electric-only range. It’s quick, too, with 0-62mph in 5.9sec.
