Overview

The E-Class is the base of the Mercedes Benz lune-up and has been the best-seller for Mercedes in India. In the three-point star, the E-Class carries some design highlights from the bigger S-Class. It has crisp lines and seems to be crafted like a business suit. It is ageing gracefully and still manages to hold your attention. In dimension, the E-Class is the tallest at 1,471 mm, but remains smaller in terms of length and breadth. This also translates into smaller cabin space. The 245/45 R17 tyres give it a nice proportion, but at the cost of the supple ride quality Mercedes-Benz are know for. The all-black dashboard on the Mercedes is very neatly stacked and allows extra elbow room because the gear-shift is placed on the steering column.

The Mercedes’ build quality is unquestionable and in no way behind its rivals. The E-Class interior, until a couple of years ago, was the best in the segment. With time, however, it has started looking a bit dated. Even the equipment level is comparatively low with no reverse camera or no satellite navigation and limited controls on the Command system. Under the three-point star hood is a 2,987-cc, 229 PS, 540 Nm mill, which, on higher revolutions, can be heard inside the cabin. The Mercedes’ seven-speed gearbox also takes a fraction longer to react, but the gear shifts are smooth, though not as slick as DSG. The E250 CDI has a 203 bhp diesel. The E-Class features coil springs with variable dampers.

The E-Class rides on low-profile tyres and, though not exactly unsettling, it is on the stiffer side, which is very unlike Mercedes. When you do the pedal-to-metal, the ride improves as the conventional frequency selective damper stiffens up to absorb the road irregularities, giving it an ideal high-speed ride quality. The steering is light and, like the car. The E250 CDI gives 14 kmpl, the E200 CGI gives 12 kmpl and the E350 petrol gives 8-10 kmpl. The E-Class is equipped with tried-and-trusted technology in the shape of ABS, ESP® and Brake Assist as well as around a dozen new or modified driver assistance systems which are specially configured to help prevent frequent causes of accidents. The E-Class is priced from Rs 39 lakhs to Rs 1.2 cr ex-showroom. For a detailed analysis read below...

Interior

The all-black dashboard on the Mercedes is very neatly stacked and allows extra elbow room because the gear-shift is placed on the steering column. The Mercedes’ build quality is unquestionable and in no way behind its rivals. The E-Class interior, until a couple of years ago, was the best in the segment. With time, however, it has started looking a bit dated. Even the equipment level is comparatively low with no reverse camera or no satellite navigation and limited controls on the Command system.

Exterior

In the three-point star, the E-Class carries some design highlights from the bigger S-Class. It has crisp lines and seems to be crafted like a business suit. It is ageing gracefully and still manages to hold your attention. In dimension, the E-Class is the tallest at 1,471 mm, but remains smaller in terms of length and breadth. This also translates into smaller cabin space. The 245/45 R17 tyres give it a nice proportion, but at the cost of the supple ride quality Mercedes-Benz are know for.

Mileage Running Cost

The E250 CDI gives 14 kmpl, the E200 CGI gives 12 kmpl and the E350 petrol gives 8-10 kmpl.

Comfort Suspension

The E-Class features coil springs with variable dampers. he E-Class rides on low-profile tyres and, though not exactly unsettling, it is on the stiffer side, which is very unlike Mercedes. When you do the pedal-to-metal, the ride improves as the conventional frequency selective damper stiffens up to absorb the road irregularities, giving it an ideal high-speed ride quality. The steering is light and, like the car.

Engine Performance

Under the three-point star hood is a 2,987-cc, 229 PS, 540 Nm mill, which, on higher revolutions, can be heard inside the cabin. The linear fashion in which the Mercedes delivers power is what makes it special. It is not like the Audi’s free-revving and very peppy mill and lacks BMW’s strong top end, but has sufficient power for daily use and one would hardly feel the difference in power. The Mercedes’ seven-speed gearbox also takes a fraction longer to react, but the gear shifts are smooth, though not as slick as DSG. The E250 CDI has a 203 bhp diesel.

Braking Safety

The E-Class is equipped with tried-and-trusted technology in the shape of ABS, ESP® and Brake Assist as well as around a dozen new or modified driver assistance systems which are specially configured to help prevent frequent causes of accidents such as being too close to the vehicle in front, dangerous lane changes, excessive speed, drowsiness, darkness and lane departure. The handling of the E-Class is good but it is not as sporty as rivals.

    Dealing with mercedes benz and experience

    We strongly suggest that before buying Mercedez any Model in India, think several times, lest you will regret and feel very much frustrated, due to their deceptive sales tricks and non- professional approach. Mercedez Cars are not suitable for Indians. The features which are essentially required for Indian conditions are missing and you pay hefty amount for available features of Read More

    Lost it's Charm?

    This car till a few years ago was the choice for the luxury car seeker in India - Since then, it was begun to look outdated.. Great comfort, handling, performance and safety.. But even the Honda Accord gives you that.. The brand Mercedes also has a little bit of it's exclusivity since there are a lot more on the road Read More
