Expert Quotes:

E350 models rated from 16/23 mpg to 17/26 mpg, E550 models rated at 15/22 mpg to 15/23 mpg. Diesel E350 BlueTec rated 22/33 mpg and 26 mpg combined.
EPA





If you're interested in keeping things clean with your new E-Class, the E350 BlueTec Sedan is the way to go. At 22 mpg city and 33 mpg highway, it's the greenest of the E-Class bunch. The V-6-powered E350s range from 17/26 mpg for the Coupe to 16/23 mpg for the Wagon. Step up to the powerful V-8 and economy drop further, to 15 mpg city and 23 mpg highway for most models.

Choosing the 4Matic all-wheel-drive system instead of the standard rear-wheel drive creates a negligible penalty of 0-1 mpg on available models. Opt for the super-performance E63 AMG, however, and you'll be drinking gasoline at a rate of 13 mpg city, 20 mpg highway and 15 mpg combined--the antithesis of green.

Conclusion

The E-Class is a luxury sedan first, but the E350 BlueTec offers a greener option.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
