What Car? says

4 out of 5 stars

For Masses of interior space, comfortable and safe

Against Hasn't got the sporty drive of a BMW 5 Series

Verdict A lot of car for the money

Go for… E320 CDi Avantgarde

Avoid… E200 Classic

Mercedes-Benz E-Class Saloon
  • 1. The E-Class is a great long-distance cruiser, but it doesn't handle as sharply as a BMW 5-Series
  • 2. Make sure the suspension has been serviced according to the schedule. The front suspension needs new bushes every 60,000 miles
  • 3. A few electrical problems have been reported, but most are easily fixed
  • 4. Diesels are the best engines, with the E320CDi our favourite
  • 5. As on any Mercedes, manual gearboxes aren't great, so stick with the automatics
