Mercedes's E-Class continues to be excellent in its field, regardless of what iteration you go for. With a varied choice of petrol, diesel, AMG and even now hybrid variants, the luxury saloon caters across many categories. It's more expensive to run than its BMW 5 Series or Audi A6 rivals, though, and trimlines do get pricey very quickly.get the best price

Well, it’s fast; seriously fast. What else would you expect with 604bhp and a 0-62mph sprint of 3.4sec? But more than that it’s a fabulous engine that sounds better at half revs than an M5 does at full chat, while being effortless and easy to drive in everyday situations using the mostly smooth nine-speed automatic gearbox. The only thing is it’s juicy on fuel, but no doubt you were anticipating that would be the case.
