Several stand-alone options are available on some models, including: parking sensors, panoramic sunroof, enhanced seats, heated steering wheel, night vision system, split folding rear seats, upgraded sound systems, and a backseat entertainment system.
All of the E-Class vehicles feature Mercedes COMAND interior interface. This system includes a notably large display which serves to monitor the vehicle’s functions such as: entertainment, navigation, Bluetooth, website applications, and driver and emergency services.
No matter trim level and options you choose, the E550 is a prime example of Mercedes’ commitment to excellence. It’s fun to drive, smooth, elegant, and screams high-class luxury import at every turn. The 4.7 liter engine roars when necessary and the car is agile and smooth. In particular the Cabriolet convertible is a pleasurable drive – and far quieter than one would expect. Fuel economy is decent for a V8 and comes in at 16 MPG city and 26 MPG highway. The Cabriolet sees a reduction (by about 1 MPG) in these numbers.
Interior space in the E550 is ample in the sedan and adequate in the coupe. Cabriolet driver’s will find the rear seats a bit cramped (especially if they’re tall) in the headroom department, but four still fit comfortably. Cargo space is limited somewhat, though the sedan easily seats five while retaining enough elbow room for all.
