TCC Rating
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.

The Mercedes-Benz E-Class is the epitome of the luxury car. And if you happen to have more of a budget for family wheels than your typical household, it makes a great vehicle for taking the kids to practice or hitting the road for a weekend trip.

Comparing it to other luxury family cars, we give the 2011 Mercedes-Benz E-Class a score of 9 out of 10 at FamilyCarGuide, as we like the E-Class models' rich interior appointments and laid-back luxury style, plus its comfy seating, wide range of tech extras, and some breakthrough safety features.

In markets around the world, the E-Class is used for executive cars and taxis; pop the trunk or climb into the backseat and you'll understand why. We wouldn't call the back limo-like, but there's plenty of headroom and legroom for six-footers, even if those in the front seat are taller. The latest E-Class sedan gets a little more trunk space—it's up to about 19 cubic feet—and there are more cubbies throughout the cabin for smaller items. The wagon remains the pick for those who want to maximize versatility, though.

The E-Class has one of the best safety rosters of any vehicle; there are now eleven standard airbags, including a driver knee bag, plus available rear side bags, and adaptive cruise control, a driver-drowsiness monitor, and a lane-departure warning system are all available.

Families are going to find either the 268-hp, 3.5-liter V-6 in the E350, or the 382-hp, 5.5-liter V-8 in the E550 to be plenty fast, but there's also an available high-performance E63 AMG, making 518 hp. Also of interest is the E350 BlueTec Sedan, which gets an EPA-rated 24 mpg city, 34 highway.
