Where it fit?

The E-Class closely its German arch-rivals in terms of target clientele and aspirational But it does so while costing a chunk more than the Audi A6 or BMW 5-Series, in the usual manner. It’s almost hierarchy; Audi’s the cheapest, BMW, then the Benz. The E 220 CDI is the E (the company even a fleet-special ‘Executive’ trim) if you want it with posh yet capped running costs, comes in as-tested Avantgarde The E-Class was facelifted in 2006, but it was a one: only a Benz-spotter ring the changes.

Is it for you?

If the Audi is sophisticated, and the BMW then the Mercedes is traditional. wager the average age of an E-Class is higher than the other two – not a bad thing, just a pointer to the it does well. Namely, you along in unflurried elegance and remaining timeless and presentable its age. It doesn’t ‘say’ too controversial about you, the BMW. And, with a anti-breakdown warranty, it’s the ideal car for keeps. With the Mercedes overhauled the build ensuring it has the rock-solid longevity to you may want to.

What does it do

It displays well-oiled, cushioned that oozes expensive In town, the ride is generally and pillowy, at speed it’s like a huge ocean Stability is immense and controls an expensive, precision-made feel. The also surprises, with refinement in regular use, a lack of vibration and four-cylinder It’s responsive and pacy, but most impressive is the big-engine 295lb/ft at 2,000rpm. The thirsty E 350 V6 Just 258lb/ft (and a deal more fuss to go it). It may lack the seven-speed of the higher end models but with the on offer the five-speed self-shifter is fine.

What doesn’t it do

Mercedes-Benz E 220 CDI AT Special Series

It’s hardly the sporting Stable steering means a of bite, plus a strange of heft and absent self-centring at low rubbery over-assisted remoteness at Press-on motoring sees it into corners, with yanking passengers in response to body roll. The admirable of the engine is spoiled by perceptible vibrations, while the ride aged in its thuddery response to inputs. On gristly countryside it can jostle occupants as it patters the Avantgarde’s lowered suspension is to blame in part. This age pegs the famous Benz values, too.

What’s it like to live

It soothes. Suffer from pressure? Get one of these: road will never again your life. Such quality helps here – the close of the doors to the action of the pedal, it feels granite-hewn Benzes are back). Mercedes’ very firm seats up front (they’re made for 6 hours behind the wheel), as a dash that’s dating but feels special to use. The white-lit dials look at night. Up back, the cabin is spacious and comfortable (albeit by the massive A6), while the boot is as sensible as you’d

How green is it?

Here’s where you be surprised. Think a big Benz big fuel bills? Not with the 2.2-litre four-pot diesel. The figure is 44.8mpg and we had no trouble into the 40s during a 200-mile trip. Indeed, through speed zones on the motorway, flashed up on the trip computer for a pretty impressive. But is it enough to the heady list price and options costs? For instance, you even start, you need to add for an auto gearbox, meaning the E-Class is an impossibility. Economical to not to buy.

Would we buy it?

In the executive car sector, we a rare choice to buy a car to fit perfectly our driving style and desires. The ticks all the comfort/quality/refinement boxes; the 220 CDI may be the diesel, but it still manages to surprisingly expensive. Good as it is. The equivalent base-spec A6 costs less. Of course, it’s not like a BMW, and far more than the Audi. But the very engine proves that in most basic guise, still a very satisfying We’d go for the 5-Series; yet, the still earns our respect.
