Mercedes-Benz E-Class Overview

The E-Class has long been a benchmark luxury sports sedan, combining a feeling of substance and class with enjoyable and agile handling. Luxury-trim versions have a smooth and cushy ride, but the Sport is considerably firmer. The responsive 3.5-liter V6 and seven-speed automatic returned 21-mpg overall. Our tested four-cylinder diesel got an excellent 30-mpg overall, with a cruising range of more than 800-miles. The interior is plush, with excellent seats and fit and finish. A coupe, convertible, and wagon (with a rare rear-facing third-row seat) are also available. Reliability has been average or better for some versions, but we can't make a prediction for the high-scoring diesel version because we lack data.
