The Mercedes E-Class is one of the world's most popular executive cars and for good reason. The car has an excellent quality build and high comfort levels to making a hard to beat offering.
Along with the Mercedes E-Class saloon, the vehicle is also available as a cabriolet, estate and coupe, all of which offer excellent levels of performance. All are couple to an impressive seven speed automatic transmission.
The diesel engines offer economy and performance though drivers looking for a more responsive car should take a closer look at the Mercedes AMG E 63. Opt for the entry-level E220 which has the firm's BlueTEC technology and economy will be 64 mpg and emissions will be 114g/km. It has a top speed of 141 mph and it engine output of 177bhp will help it sprint from 0 to 62 mph in 8.4 seconds. The E350 BlueTEC will return 55 mpg and has a top speed of 155 mph while the E250, which as a petrol engine, will return 47 mpg and will sprint from 0 to 62 mph in 7.4 seconds with an engine that produces 211bhp. Its top speed is 151 mph.
The Mercedes E-Class is hugely popular within the executive segment because it offers drivers unrivalled levels of handling and lots of equipment; it's an excellent choice for business users particularly.
Mercedes carried out a slight revamp in 2015 and added more equipment and boosted its engine offering. The suspension helps deliver smoothness and comfort to make it one of the best cars available. With just two trim levels, drivers can expect lots of equipment including satnav, DAB radio and climate control. There's also an electrically heated seats and 17-inch alloys. The top trim offers AMG Sport for a sportier profile and all models offer a quiet driving experience thanks to lots of insulation to keep road noise to a minimum.
The suspension has been tweaked to offer a comfortable ride, particularly on motorways, though the AMG is geared towards a sportier experience so the suspension is firmer. There's also the option of the excellent AirMatic air suspension which enables the driver to choose the suspension for their journey. The interior is well made and well-designed, everything has a pleasing feel and a premium look. While the list of standard equipment will meet most drivers needs there's various options available including a reversing camera and panoramic glass sunroof.
Essentially, the Mercedes E-Class offers an excellent executive car for a demanding segment with incredible levels of performance and handling that's hard to beat.
