Eagle-eyed will have spotted the E-Class in our pictures here, on plates, is still the pre-facelift Earlier this month 2013) Mercedes-Benz revealed a new for the entire model range, so why are we the old car when the international launch for the model is weeks away? this is our first opportunity to get the wheel of the diesel-hybrid version on roads. And anyway, very of what’s going on underneath the of this car will change. The will come in for a relatively restyle too, though remain as spacious and comfortable as

There are very few hybrid that we enjoy driving, but E 300 BlueTec Hybrid is the most hybrid on the market. To all intents and it feels little different to one of the CDI diesel E-Class models. Its certainly lives up to the ‘300’ though under the bonnet is the basic four-cylinder 2.1-litre used in E 200, 220 and 250 CDI variants. it is quicker than all of those, a shame the engine doesn’t as nice a sound as one with six

Audi A6 3.0 TDI: smooth engine with note and option of quattro drive.

BMW 525d: no longer a engine sadly, but fast — not as economical as the E 300 Hybrid

Jaguar XF 3.0 D: this price opens up the top-of-the range XF 2.2 D to but the 3.0-litre engine is far more
