Expert Rating

Our expert ratings are based on seven comprehensive criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value.

You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

The midsize E-Class has always taken a reasonable approach to high-class motoring. It’s undeniably prestigious and accommodating, but still accessible to most buyers shopping in this league. All E-Class models perform with the precision you would expect from Mercedes-Benz, but the E550 offers up true exhilaration courtesy of its twin-turbo V8 engine.

What's New for 2015

The sedan version of the E550 has been dropped, leaving the coupe and the convertible.

Choosing Your Mercedes-Benz E550

Mercedes-Benz E550

The rear-drive E550 coupe and convertible carry a twin-turbocharged 4.7-liter V8 that's good for 402 horsepower and 443 pound-feet of torque. That's makes the E550 second only to the specially tuned AMG E-Class models in terms of performance. Power flows through a seven-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters. You might expect a hardtop on the convertible, but the E550 carries a traditional fabric top, albeit one with three layers for maximum insulation from noise and weather. The benefit is a trunk that doesn't disappear when the top comes down.

The E550 comes standard with a sports steering wheel, perforated front disc brakes with painted calipers, 18-inch AMG wheels and leather upholstery. Other equipment is shared with the rest of the line, which means you get niceties like wood interior trim, 14-way power front seats with memory, a sunroof for the coupe, LED exterior lighting, Bluetooth phone and audio, and adaptive suspension dampers. A driver alertness monitor and collision mitigation system are also standard.

From there, you can select a number of option packages to enhance the E550's luxury and technology:

  • Premium: Includes a rearview camera, hard-drive navigation and audio storage, a 14-speaker Harman Kardon surround-sound system, massaging climate-controlled front seats, a power rear sunshade (coupe) and the AirScarf neck-warming system (convertible).
  • Sport: Tacks on multicontour front seats and aluminum pedal trim.
  • Lighting: Adds full LED headlamps with curve illumination and automatic high-beam control.
  • Parking Assist: Equips the E550 with a surround-view camera system, front and rear parking sensors, and an automated parallel parking system.
  • Keyless Go: Gets you keyless access and ignition, plus a power trunk lid with hands-free opening and closing.
  • Lane Tracking: Adds blind spot monitoring and lane keeping assist.
  • Driver Assistance: In addition to the above, you get adaptive cruise control with steering assist, cross-traffic alert and pedestrian detection with automatic braking.

Among the few individual options are upgraded Nappa leather upholstery and a wood-trimmed steering wheel.

CarsDirect Tip

The E550 starts out better equipped than the V6 E-Class models, but we still consider the Premium package rather essential in a car of this caliber.
