The redesigned Mercedes-Benz E-Class delivers nimbler handling and better fuel economy than the previous generation, and features cutting-edge safety gear. On the other hand, it dials back on ride comfort, interior room, and user friendliness. The E300's 241-hp, 2.0-liter turbo four-cylinder delivers ample motivation but it won't set your heart on fire. On the other hand, we got a commendable 24 mpg overall with the all-wheel-drive version. The car is quiet and corners with athleticism. While the ride is mostly comfortable, it lost some plushness. Interior highlights include impeccable fit and finish and supportive seats but the controls are befuddling. Even adjusting the seat's lumbar support is a multi step process done through the central controller and screen. New technology gives the E-Class the ability to follow the road and steer itself temporarily as a driver assist feature.
