    The Mercedes-Benz E-Class is a brilliant executive saloon. Sharp to look at - yet discreetly styled -- the car offers a high quality interior and impressive handling. An extensive engine range and three trim levels create plenty of choice. Even the cheapest E200 CDI turbodiesel models deliver good performance, while economy throughout the entire range impresses too. It might not drive with the precision of a BMW 5 Series or Jaguar XF, but the E-Class betters both for comfort and safety. The range-topping E500 and E63 AMG models provide impressive performance, with the E63 delivering an incredible 525bhp from its high-revving 6.2-litre V8 engine.

    I've driven one of these on a 80mile trip after a 13hour day and to be honest it was difficult to get comfy and you sit quite low to the floor, (that said iam 6foot 4 ), it was a very relaxing cruiser on the motorway, for pottering around town it's a bit of an akward bus.
    It's strange there is something about having the Merc emblem always in your line of sight that gives the driver a prestigious feeling. Great car. Note skoda seem to have used the double front lights on the 2018 superb....

      Don't be silly. Most of us are right-handed. So having the driving position on the right of the car makes it a lot easier to throw eggs at cyclists.

    Why is it...when someone reviews a merc they always say it's handling is not up to bmw sportiness...since when is a bmw the benchmark saloon.

      +rscosworthfan exactly. why have a large executive luxury car, with a frugal, common manual gearbox? it goes against the point of the car, and you hardly buy a car like this for economy. i can slightly understand on an AMG model, for driving experience, although i wouldn't personally.

    Oh man, I loved this iteration of the E Class, loved those double headlights. Hate the most recent version, you can´t tell an S class from an E or C Class...each MB range used to have defining traits which made you identify them inmediately. Now they have gone the cheap slut Audi way, in which every car looks like a scaled version of the flagship car.

    supposedly a BMW has a bit more of a "sport" touch to it than Mercedes E. E class drives very smooth though. Personally I prefer the electronics and interior packages of the Mercedes more, but both are great cars.

  • Suyamu
    Suyamu 5 lat temu

    depends on the model. If it's built after 2010 they're supposedly not as prone to need repairs because some problems in the design were solved. If you need serious repairs, the parts are more expensive than your average car - if you get any work done at a mercedes partner garage you can also expect up to twice the average cost for work. ;)
    Unless you get a car that has serious problems though I'd say it's all still acceptable. The car is very nice and comfortable.
