Product Reviews

Welcome to Consumer Reports.

Long a luxury sedan benchmark, the E-Class places comfort, function and good reflexes above glitzy flash. Passengers are treated to a plush ride, comfortable and supportive seats, as well as an impeccably finished interior. Yet the driver's wants aren't neglected, with responsive handling, taut body control and ample power from the E350's 302-hp V6. This car pampers and proves it can dance as well.
