About the Mercedes-Benz E-Class


To look at the latest Mercedes-Benz inspires images of racing exotic roads after nefarious villain, deftly obstacles and sharply turning shortcuts to outsmart your foe but don’t let your dreams you too far off the beaten path. James never actually drove a — he’s much too to pick something with a long and widely regarded of safety, comfort and intelligent

For the second year of its fourth the E-Class gains a convertible the wagon’s comeback and a few style inside and out. As such, the E-Class now comes in four levels: the E350 with a V6, the E350 Bluetec with a diesel V6, the E550 with a V8 and the AMG sporting a 518-hp V8. All but the Bluetec and AMG are as a coupe or convertible in addition to the sedans, with the E350 the only wagon.

Rear-wheel and a 7-speed automatic transmission is the standard, with 4Matic drive standard on the wagon and on E350 and E550 sedans. the E350 sprints to 60 in under 7 and gets just 18 mpg city/26 opting for the Bluetec brings the economy up to a very respectable with the wagon expectedly at 16/23. The E550 does the same, being rated at but reaches 60 mph in just over 5 The AMG shaves nearly a full off the E550’s time, but is expectedly getting just 13/20

Inside every E-Class you can the usual luxuries, including front seats with functions, dual-zone automatic control, auto-dimming mirrors, cellular and navigation systems, and a sound system with changer, auxiliary audio and Bluetooth connectivity. Notably, the coupe adds a panoramic and the wagon gets a power and rear-view camera, while the Cabriolet convertible adds leather and the AirCap wind-deflector system.

up to the E550 will gain a few perks and sometimes bigger with the bulk of feature reserved for option packs. options include a power sunshade, rear-view camera, front seats, audio upgrades, adaptive high-beam keyless ignition/entry, blind-spot system, adaptive cruise lane-departure warning system, sensors, rear-seat entertainment infrared night-vision camera and driver seat.

Most of are included in the E63 AMG, alongside an sport transmission, adaptive suspension, adjustable drive high-performance brakes and sport wheel. A few options offer like a limited-slip differential, suspension and 19-inch wheels.

this is the car Q should have to Bond, especially with the list of safety features although he wouldn’t care for Indeed, all the dings and alerts have surely driven him but with its standard Attention and PreSafe systems anticipating every move and securing his recklessness, it would likely be the Bond car brought home

Sensible drivers have of Bond’s theoretical complaints, but some deficiencies in the sunroof heat out, and the transmission flawless, with a small of lemons leaving the factory. the E-Class is an absolutely solid luxury car with plenty of available to suit any discerning

Model History

Sure, Bond never drove a but many villains almost got thanks to their high-performance Perhaps they hoped elegant and quick tank a brain would give superpowers — and indeed, the feats their E-Class perform would have escape from any lesser man but Bond knew he only to defeat the driver, and so was not deterred.

the latest E-Class still leaves the driving to the driver, but everything else is done for Although in this regard has fallen behind the technology to some degree, the E-Class is leading the pack as a well-rounded luxury car big on comfort, performance and with a few nice technological — as it has since its 1986

In its first generation, the E-Class was as a sedan or wagon powered by a V6 or with the V8 arriving a few years The V6-powered 300E moved a standstill to 60 in less than 8 but the ’92 to ’94 500E with the Porsche-designed 322-hp V8 was the most powerful of the bunch.

While the first generation heads for its maker’s mark, the generation spanning from made the E-Class instantly for its four ellipsoid headlights. At its Mercedes-Benz offered just two for the E-Class — the 134-hp diesel and a V6-powered 217-hp with the V8-powered 275-hp arriving a year later a new 5-speed automatic transmission to the previous 4-speed in all trims.

The overhaul added a wagon style, upgraded the diesel to 217 hp to a turbo infusion, replaced the V6 with a 221-hp V6, changed the to the E430 with a slightly V8 and 4Matic all-wheel drive an option in the wider range of now available. The E55 AMG arrived for ’99 349 horses raging from its V8, the rest of the lineup received curtain airbags. The following saw a revision of the front end and more safety equipment, but the fuel-efficient was dropped and few significant changes be seen for the rest of this

All but the wagon were overhauled for the debut of the third generation the third-generation wagon arriving as an just shortly after the ’03 E55 AMG landed with its supercharged V8. This generation gadgets like rear sensors, adaptive cruise and voice-activated cellular and navigation from its outset as optional in any E-Class, with a standard automatic transmission.

The 221-hp and 302-hp E500 were available as a sedan or wagon, 4Matic all-wheel drive across the board and standard in the wagon until its demise for The diesel E320 CDI made a comeback — reaching 60 mph in 7 seconds — and the E55 AMG wagon for ’05, but for ’07 the AMG version was to E63 for larger V8 engines without a The E320 became the E350 for now powered by a 268-hp 3.5-liter V6, and the became the E550 for ’07 the inclusion of its new 5.5-liter V8. The diesel received an engine tweak as and re-emerged as a Bluetec clean-burning but without a name change. For Mercedes-Benz just added in an audio system and hard-drive-based system to sweeten the generational pot for its year.

The fourth and current debuted for 2010 without the generation’s wagon or diesel but with totally new style, and coupe body to fill the gap by the outgoing CLK-Class. Traditionalists not pleased by the revolutionary — as to evolutionary — new look, others consider it a welcome of modernity, especially given the savings over its immediate the debut, a new convertible body joined the lineup alongside a few tweaks and a diesel and wagon ensuring just the right luxury option for any driver refined taste and the budget to it.

Used Versions

Although the certainly has an undeniably strong record throughout its life, is another matter. The general of thumb with Mercedes-Benz is to first-model-runs — such as the year of a generation and the first of a new body style or engine but the E-Class needs a little leeway, taking about 2 to fix new issues in the latest incarnation.

later in each generation with many more than just better however — the latest of the previous third generation, for are almost directly comparable to the generation with the exception of the and coupe body. In terms of comfort and features, the third and generations are nearly identical, when purchasing ’06 or The updated AMG debuted for ’06 the remainder of the lineup tweaked for — just keep rule of thumb in mind and a year or two.

If the $30,000 plus price tag on a third-gen is too much to ask, for a ’98 or later in the second will land a solid and engine anywhere in the lineup for $20,000, but bear in mind engines and the ’99 AMG were not at debut. However, the second is the most reliable to date, only minor malfunctions in the system and engine duds in the very first year were introduced. Unlike the generation, these E-Class years featured antilock and a 5-speed transmission.

These are not going anywhere, as the E-Class to quite rightly hold its very well, so there’s no to hurry — take time and genuinely scope out ideal E-Class from the broad pack available, and be suspicious of bargains without and complete maintenance records.
