The E400 Hybrid would be more attractive if the cheaper E350 BlueTEC didn't achieve better highway mileage with a diesel engine.


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 E400 Hybrid comes in only a single trim level and features a wide array of standard features, like: a six-disc CD/DVD system, 14-way power seats and LED daytime running lights. On top of its premium features, this sedan also features an elegant look that outshines just about everything in its class with its bold grille; 17-inch, five-spoke wheels and well-sculpted body lines.

All of its luxury and thriftiness doesn’t exempt it from flaws. Specifically, with a base price well north of $50,000, the E400 Hybrid should have a full-leather interior—Mercedes-Benz, however, opted for MB-Tex vinyl when competitors like the BMW 5 Series Hybrid and Lexus GS 450h come standard with leather seating.
