The 2010 Mercedes-Benz E-Class can't be considered a bargain with a $48,600 base MSRP, but its features list certainly justifies the price.

Leading-edge technology

Boasts a long list of new safety technologies and luxury features

2010 E350 starts at $46,800...but adds standard equipment [compared to 2009]

Mercedes will most likely tout the new Mercedes E-Class' cutting-edge safety features in its marketing material, but the 2010 Mercedes-Benz E-Class also boasts myriad high-tech comfort features.

Edmunds reviewers are impressed by the 2010 Mercedes-Benz E-Class' "leading-edge technology," much of which has filtered down from the top-end S-Class lineup. The new Mercedes E-Class represents a tremendous value compared to the outgoing model, as Cars.com raves about the "long list of new safety technologies and luxury features." Luxury versions come standard with 17-inch wheels; COMAND controls for the entertainment and climate systems; oval exhaust pipes; air conditioning; cruise control; a sunroof; power windows/locks/mirrors; and almost shocking, vinyl seats. Sport versions are outfitted with 18-inch wheels, distinct gauges, and trapezoidal exhaust pipes.

Despite the new features, the base price has dropped significantly, as Jalopnik states that "the 2010 E350 starts at $48,600, $4,600 cheaper, but adds standard equipment," including "Attention Assist, Driver Knee airbag, front pelvic airbags, and variable damping Agility Control." Other standard features on the 2010 Mercedes-Benz E-Class include Mercedes' trademark COMAND system, which ConsumerGuide says "programs [the] audio and navigation systems," as well as full power accessories, air conditioning, and cruise control. TheCarConnection.com's editors are surprised, however, to find that vinyl seats are standard fare on the Mercedes E-Class, though the available leather upgrade is expected to dominate in the U.S. market.

For the E-Class, 2010 continues the Mercedes-Benz trend of offering ultra-luxe features for those willing and able to pay for them. Cars.com reports that "uplevel options include massaging, bolster-adjustable seats" and "tri-zone automatic climate control," while a "panoramic sunroof" is also available on the Mercedes E-Class. The most popular option will likely be the available voice-controlled navigation system, although TheCarConnection.com's editors expect the available 610-watt audio system and rear-seat DVD entertainment system to sell well. Option packages include a navigation system with voice control; Sirius and HD radio; a rearview camera; heated seats; automatic headlamps and high beams; Keyless Go push-button starting; adaptive cruise control, blind-spot warnings and parking guidance; a panoramic sunroof; split-folding seats; massage seating; Bluetooth; a Harman/Kardon 610-watt audio system; a rear-seat DVD entertainment system; and a full leather interior.


The 2010 Mercedes-Benz E-Class can't be considered a bargain with a $48,600 base MSRP, but its features list certainly justifies the price.

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.
