2014 Mercedes-Benz E-Class: 24 mpg city, 30 highway (E400 Hybrid); E550 4Matic (17/26 mpg); E550 Cabriolet (17/26); E550 Coupe (18/26); E63 AMG (16/24); E63 AMG 4Matic (16/23); E63 AMG S 4Matic Wagon (15/21 mpg)

Stop/start is here too, and it's not the fig leaf you'd think, even if it starts the E63 AMG in second gear when the tranny's in comfort/economy mode and thwaps the drivetrain to life with a mini-riding crop.
Motor Authority



The Mercedes-Benz E-Class is one of the few vehicles that covers all of the most commonly available engine types. It's powered by gas, by a combination of gas and electricity, and by diesel, with the latter two drivetrain options delivering the top estimated fuel economy.

Mileage figures are close to those of last year's model--except in the case of the new turbodiesel four, which replaces the larger-displacement turbodiesel V-6. EPA fuel economy figures weren't yet out for that engine at our latest update.

The E350 sedan rates up to 21 mpg city, 31 highway. Stepping through the all-wheel-drive versions of the four-door and wagon, and the two-door coupe brought mileage down to 20/28 mpg, a bit lower for some of the other body styles.

The high-performance E63 AMG models were rated as low as 15 mpg city, 23 mpg highway--or 15/21 for the new E63 AMG Wagon.

Given that last year's E350 BlueTEC earned 22/32-mpg fuel economy numbers, it's a good bet the new turbo four-cylinder diesel in the E250 Bluetec will hit 35 mpg on the highway cycle. In an early drive, we managed to see 38 mpg, including some aggressive, non-mindful driving; so we expect a real-world 40 mpg on the highway to be quite easily achievable.
 

Conclusion

Both a diesel and a hybrid edition give a green lift to a lineup heavy with near-600-horsepower V-8s.

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.
