What Car? says

4 out of 5 stars

For Refined, classy and well finished

Against Not the best car to drive; reliability questions

Verdict A great executive model that's majors on comfort and refinement

Go for… E220 CDI Avantgarde

Avoid… E350 Sport

Mercedes-Benz E-Class Saloon
  • 1. The E-Class places the emphasis on ride comfort, but it is also enjoyable to drive with reasonable handling
  • 2. Of the eight engines available, the diesels are by far the best options
  • 3. The majority of E-Class examples are automatics; manuals are less desirable unless fitted to the smaller-capacity engines
  • 4. Emissions for the diesels range from 167g/km to 194g/km, while the petrols don’t fare as well, with start at 195g/km, and rise to 273g/km
  • 5. The automatic gearbox can be temperamental and, in the worst cases, owners could face a substantial replacement fee
