Mercedes-Benz E-Class Overview

The E-Class, long a benchmark luxury sports sedan, has been freshened for 2014. This well-finished, substantial-feeling luxury car has secure, agile handling. Luxury-trim versions have a smooth and cushy ride, but the Sport is considerably firmer. The smooth 3.5-liter V6 and seven-speed automatic returned 21 mpg overall. The new for 2014 four-cylinder diesel got an impressive 30 mpg overall. The interior is plush, with excellent seats and fit and finish. The coupe is based on the C-Class. A convertible and a wagon (with a rare rear-facing third-row seat) are also available. Reliability has been average or better for all gas versions.

A subscription to ConsumerReports.org includes Consumer Reports road test reports (based on over 50 different tests).
