    Q. I am confused between Mercedes E Class 220d or BMW 5 series. Please suggest me which car is best E Class or BMW diesel variant.
    • For self drive, go for BMW 5 Series Luxury Line without any second thought. It’s great for self drive and fully loaded with Remote Control Parking and many other latest features. However you can buy Mercedes E class if you want to sit on back seat.
    • Yes, of course. No other german is match to BMW. Its driver's car. If you have passion for driving, go for it. Merc /Audi cannot match for its shear driving dynamics.

    Q. Which car is the better BMW 3 Series or Jaguar XE model for maintenance.
    • With prices ranging between Rs 41.7 lakh and Rs 48.5 lakh, the 3 Series remains a sedan that you buy because you want it, and not because you need it. It has learnt new tricks and now delivers on more than just performance. The updated styling, plusher interiors and better cabin space all point towards the same. Yes, it could’ve done without silly feature omissions, and a softer ride might have won it a few more favours among back seat buyers. It raises our expectations of performance not just from small BMWs, but the segment as a whole. On the other hand, If we talk about Jaguar XE, It offers surprisingly comfortable drive quality. It might feel a bit stiff in city but never uncomfortable and as faster you go, more comfortable and planned it gets. It offers great handling and it is fun to drive too. It offers a more luxurious feel than before. So, both cars give a tough competition to each other. You may compare both the cars according to their variants too. We would suggest you to take a test drive in order to clear your all doubts. Check out authorised dealership details.
