The Car Connection Expert Review

(2003 model shown)

 

E-Class

 

Mercedes' elegant and capable mid-size sedan and wagon combo gets a new base engine for 2006, a 268-horsepower, 3.5-liter twin-cam, four-valve per-cylinder V-6 that replaces the previous 3.2-liter version, precipitating a name change to the E350. It comes mated to a five-speed automatic transmission. Meanwhile the, E500 continues with its 302-horsepower 5.0-liter V-8 and seven-speed automatic gearbox, while the top E55 AMG remains one of the quickest sedans available with its 469-horsepower supercharged 5.4-liter V-8 and specially modified five-speed automatic. A diesel-powered E320 CDI sedan was added last year that uses common-rail direct injection technology to generate 201 horsepower and 369 lb-ft of torque; it comes mated to a five-speed-automatic transmission. Standard safety items include four-wheel disc power anti-lock brakes with Brake Assist, front- and rear-side and head-curtain airbags, Electronic Stability Control, Automatic Slip Control, and - new for 2006 - active head restraints to help reduce whiplash injuries. Optional amenities include a navigation system, adaptive cruise control, a premium Harmon Kardon sound system, heated seats and steering wheel, and a power trunk closer. Also to be added during 2006 is an optional Apple iPod operating interface that integrates the portable MP3 player with the car's audio system.

I purchased the E350 used in 2011. Was very impressed with it immediately as it handled very well and was very quick on acceleration. The fit and finish is excellent as the car still appears to be new after... + More »

What a great buy! Nothing better than having someone else pay the depreciation on a BIG ticket Mercedes wagon. Bought with 58K miles and now has 109,000 miles with smiles. We drive this car all over the... + More »
