Introduction

What Car? says...

Fun fact: the Mercedes E-Class gets its 'E' from Einspritzmotor. It’s German for 'fuel-injected engine' and was a cutting-edge piece of tech worth shouting about back in the day.

Anything that's not an electric vehicle gets fuel injection these days, but the point is that the E-Class is always at the vanguard as technology advances, getting the latest and greatest gadgets soon after the flagship S-Class.

If it all sounds more complicated than the Higgs boson particle, don’t stress. We’re here to make sense of it all in an easily digestible form. Keep clicking through this review and we’ll talk you through which engines and trims make the most sense, and how the Mercedes E-Class stacks up against the Audi A6BMW 5 Series and Jaguar XF, which are its de facto rivals. 

We can even help you save money on a new E-Class, because our New Car Buying service delivers big discounts without you having to go through the hassle of haggling.
