Standard features of the 2008 Mercedes-Benz E-Class include items that normally cost extra on lesser vehicles, and options include items not available from competitors.

The 2008 Mercedes-Benz E-Class 350 and 550 are available with 4Matic all-wheel drive. (E-Class wagons are covered in a separate review.)

"Standard equipment highlights [of the Mercedes-Benz E-Class] include a harman/kardon premium audio system, in-dash six-disc CD changer, memory front seats, sunroof and a full complement of safety features that includes eight airbags, electronic stability control and Mercedes' PRE-SAFE system," according to Kelley Blue Book. 2008 Mercedes-Benz E-Class "E320 Bluetec and E350 are equipped almost identically," Edmunds tells us, sharing not only the standard features listed above, but also "10-way power front seats with memory, dual-zone automatic climate control, power tilt-telescoping steering column and a Harman Kardon surround-sound audio system with a CD changer and auxiliary audio jack."

Moving up to the Mercedes-Benz 2008 E550, you may opt for the no-cost Sport package that, according to various reviews read by TheCarConnection.com, adds "18-inch wheels, a lowered sport suspension, blue tinted glass, different wood trim and dual chrome tailpipes." "The Mercedes-Benz E-Class E63 AMG comes equipped similar to the E550, but adds split-folding rear seats, heated front seats, satellite radio and an array of AMG performance and styling features," concludes Edmunds.

Kelley Blue Book lists some of the popular options for the Mercedes-Benz E-Class: "two designo packages (Espresso and Graphite), a keyless entry and start system, heated and active-ventilated (cooling) front seats, front and rear parking sensors, panorama sunroof, navigation system, adaptive headlamps, AMG Sport Package, Bluetooth hands-free telephone connection, voice control and iPod integration."

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.
