Review

The Mercedes E-Class is very well equipped and available with a great range of engines, from efficient diesels, to tax-friendly plug-in hybrids and punchy petrols. It's pretty quiet and comfortable on the motorway, too, but the ride could be better around town and, while the boot is big, the rear passenger compartment isn't, relative to its rivals. Overall, the BMW 5 Series is a better car to drive, has a better infotainment system and is better built inside.

get the best price

Even this entry-level Sport trim is brimming with kit. You get cruise control, power-folding door mirrors, two-zone climate control, 17in alloy wheels, ambient lighting, heated front seats, four-way electric front seats with lumbar adjustment, leather seat trim, 40/20/40 split-folding rear seats, front and rear parking sensors, a rear-view camera, LED headlights, automatic lights and wipers, a 12.3in digital instrument screen, a 12.3in infotainment screen, Apple CarPlay/Android Auto smartphone mirroring, sat-nav, wireless phone-charging and a host of safety aids, including traffic sign recognition and blind-spot monitoring. If you want any extras you have to jump up a trim because you cannot add options.

The idea of a 2.0-litre petrol engine might appeal, but it's nowhere as economical as the E220d diesel and not as gutsy so you have to rev it harder. Ultimately, it's just as quick, with 0-62mph in 7.4sec.
