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.

On top of the AMG Line Edition, this adds adaptive LED headlights and a gesture-controlled powered boot lid.

This 191bhp 2.0-litre diesel engine has the lowest CO2 emissions of any non-plug-in E Class and it's RDE2 compliant. It comes with a nine-speed automatic gearbox as standard and is a surprisingly strong and flexible performer, with a 0-62mph time of 7.4sec. It's reasonably quiet and should average 45mpg if you drive it respectfully. It's our pick of the range.
