The Mercedes-Benz E-Class can trace its roots back to the 1953 Mercedes 180. That model didn't tempt many Americans away from their Cadillacs and Lincolns, but times have changed and the modern E-Class has become a favorite midsize choice in the luxury market.
Now Mercedes-Benz has added a hybrid variant to the line-up. All-new for 2013, the E400 Hybrid features a 3.5-liter V6 engine pumping out 302 horsepower and 273 pound-feet of torque, and an electric motor that delivers 27 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque. Combined output is a healthy 329 horsepower, and a seven-speed automatic transmission delivers it to the rear wheels. The EPA rates fuel economy at a relatively thrifty 24 mpg city and 30 mpg highway.
The Mercedes-Benz E400 hybrid not only delivers good mpg and low CO2 emissions, it also comes with standard features like: a sport-tuned suspension with Agility Control; adaptive brakes; high-efficiency fuel pumps; LED daytime running lights and LED taillights; 17-inch, five-spoke alloy wheels; a sunroof; MB-Tex synthetic leather seating with 14-way power front seats; a leather-wrapped multifunction steering wheel; a universal garage door opener; dual-zone climate control; whiplash-preventing NECK-PRO front head restraints; burl walnut or black ash interior trim; Bluetooth connectivity; and an AM/FM/CD/DVD audio system with a six-disc changer, Bluetooth audio streaming and HD radio receiver.
Standard leather seating, equal highway mpg and more powerful, but costs more and lower city mpg
34 mpg highway, semi-sporty body and decked-out interior, but pricier and lacks pedigree
Much better mpg across the board, sleek styling and lower price
Super-low pricing and 33 mpg highway from base engine, but no hybrid option
