Which used Mercedes E-Class saloon should I buy?

Five petrol engines, three diesels and four trim levels make choosing the right E-Class a potential headache. Fortunately, sticking with the smaller engines and entry-level Classic trim buys you 99% of what's best about the car at a value price.

Buy from Merc dealers or reputable non-franchised specialists, stick with the E200 petrol or the E220 diesel, insist on an auto gearbox and you can't go wrong.
