Seems like both cars downgraded in terms of headlights. Otherwise everything else looks good. I'd take the E63 interior with the M5 steering wheel lol

M5 looks way better imho. Why did the Merc not bump their HP to compete with the M5 Comp or the new M5 cs coming soon?

At least use the Estate. It's got more flair after all.

Someone posted an article either on this site or another showing an amg rep state the hp was not bumped so as to stay below the flagship gt63s numbers.

Both of the sedans look pretty good, although I prefer the pre-refresh of both, however, there is a body style available on the E63S that is superior to both cars...

Mercedes can't really get their facelifts right, they always mess it up. Previous model year looked better.

All went downhill after this one, though:

I think in this comparison M5 LCI looks way better.

Not sure about E63 LCI I think previous one looked way better and more mean. Those taillights are just very sad and not aggressive at all...

I don't know why but to my eyes most mercedes just look like a designing mess. The new E63 looks like a downgrade with the soften lines.

I wasn't even a fan of the LCI M5 but it looks way better than the Merc.

Do the companies really compete against each other anymore? I think BMW vs. Porsche is the better conversation. Bimmer heads talk about going to Porsche, not Mercedes. BMW is for driving enthusiasts whereas Mercedes is about luxury - hence their interior attention to detail. On the road it's almost always an older customer in the Merc, a diverse demographic in BMWs and way more (true) Ms than AMGs.

Merc headlight is cute and taillight is girlish.
Not in a good way though

You'd be surprised how much better Mercs of the last few years drive and how much they've caught up to the competition, specifically those in the AMG division, as well as the fake AMG's

I didn't go from a 540i to CLS because of the luxury, and honestly the 5er was more "luxurious" at least in materials and build quality.

Soften up quite a bit. GTR is a different story

The Mercedes E design looks top heavy for some reason.
