They are both very good and efficient cars. Just know that Benz is a premium brand. If anything happens ur wallet will lose weight. Am talking from the car price, to servicing, maintenance etc
If u are very rich, go for the Benz.

So somebody cannot ask for opinion again. Op simply asked which one should he buy not which one is better so nobody is comparing anything. The Benz is boss in terms of luxury and commanding respect, but the Lexus also holds it's ground. The Benz is more expensive to fix, oh spare me all those maintenance culture bulshit. Parts will fail one time or the other and if u are not bouyant enough might be a problem fixing. The Lexus parts are not cheap either but u can easily find cheaper after market parts which can still hold their ground for a few months before changing again. Also some problems in the Benz might require some special diagnostic tools.

If you wish to buy w211 series, look for 2007/08 E350. Stay away from 2005 down to 2003 E320 models. Most of all don't even consider getting E500.

Go for the one that'll make your heart skip a beat everytime you approach it.

They are both powered by engines, they both use regular engine oil, they both use same petrol, they both use 4 tires, they both have brake pads, etc

You can get involved with self-maintenance of both by joining specific brand forums, get parts off of Amazon, etc and seek out an independent garage.

Enjoy life, it's not a trial run but the only one we have.

I would personally buy the Lexus. If the comparison was the E class (next model up). Then I would have to consult another oracle.......

Hater spotted grin

The ES may have a rubbish shape Outside not even rubbish, looks more like an amoeba as the car they copied {big daddy} has more outward appeal but the inside of this thing is all leather and formica buttons well placed.

The E class is dollars on wheels especially an all black E500 V8 my neighbors E200 was destroyed by kazeem so you need a qualified technician for the ride.

My choice would be the E class out of the 2 I like rear and tough stuffs
Re: Help Needed Lexus Es330 Vs Benz E320 by frank417: 9:48am On Jan 03, 2018
depends on what you want. For me, i'd say you go for the lex and just be "there" lower maintenance, good ride and so.
If i wanted luxury, i'd go all in on the newer models, Not getting an old fashion and calling it luxury mercedes.

If you know cars or anything about mercedes you would keep that old fashion analogy to your Japanese toys.A benz is a benz,even a 1979 model but you wouldnt know that would you?

avoid the E320 if you're concerned about price of replacement parts. the SBC module cost circa 300k alone and has 300,000 presses before going out. Some have Airmatic suspensions, avoid those as they cost an arm and leg to replace.

the ES330 is basically a dressed up Camry XLE V6. I'd advice you check out a Volvo S60 t5 or a Mazda6 lift back. they're really understated and carry out great expressions of of European and Asian engineering excellence.

they tend to be very problematic electronically. The e500 uses airmatic suspension which wasn't built with Nigerian roads in mind, breaks easily and fast. u are looking at about 100k per leg. And then the sbc module fpr the braking system which also breaks easily, last price I heard of was 380k. You could manage an 06 e320 which are said to be very less problematic.
