: 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 2017 Mercedes-Benz E-Class is a tale of two cars. The Sedan and Wagon variants are wholly new, packed with technology, and represent leading entries in their respective segments. The Coupe and Cabriolet are at the end of their lives, with full redesigns based on the most recent E-Class template on the horizon. Owners should keep the age of the body style in mind when considering an E-Class purchase.

What's New for 2017

In the case of the Sedan and Wagon, everything. The E-Class Sedan and Wagon on clean-sheet redesigns, loaded to the gills with some of the most advanced active driving systems on the planet. It’s also exceptionally luxurious, and with the E43 AMG variant, a quick little bugger, too. In the case of the Coupe and Cabriolet, there’s not nearly as much going on – Mercedes is saving the redesigned variants of these cars until model year 2018.

Choosing Your Mercedes-Benz E-Class

The smart money goes for the Sedan and Wagon and waiting on the Coupe and Cabriolet for their redesigns. These models feature – and this is not an exaggeration – among the most advanced active safety and semi-autonomous driving systems on the planet. These include the first ever car-to-x communications system, which can send warnings and other information to similarly equipped vehicles.

Touch-sensitive buttons are the order of the day on the Sedan and Wagon, while owners can choose from 64 different colors for the ambient lighting system. Meanwhile, Mercedes’ Designo upholsteries, trims, and paints are available for owners interested in a more premium E-Class.

The Coupe and Cabriolet, meanwhile, are much more limited. Both body styles are only available with a 3.0-liter, twin-turbocharged V6 and the option of 4Matic all-wheel drive. But they lack much of the most advanced active safety technology available on the Sedan and Wagon.

Mercedes-Benz E-Class


Available only in the four-door sedan body, the E300 serves as both the base and volume trim in the E-Class family. Look for a thrifty 2.0-liter, turbocharged four-cylinder, a nine-speed automatic, and the choice of standard rear- or optional all-wheel drive. Power output sits at 241 horsepower and 273 pound-feet of torque regardless of how the power is delivered.

The smallest engine in the E-Class family, the E300 returns 22 miles per gallon in the city, 30 mpg on the highway, and up to 25 mpg combined. The 4Matic all-wheel-drive system carries over the rear-drive variant’s 22-mpg city rating, but loses a digit on the highway and combined ratings.

Prices for the E300 start at $53,145, including a $995 destination charge. All-wheel drive adds $2,500 to the price tag.

Mercedes-Benz E-Class


The only trim available on the Coupe and Cabriolet bodies, the E400 is available in both rear- and all-wheel drive on the Coupe and rear-drive only with the Cabriolet. A 3.0-liter, twin-turbocharged V6 is standard. It’s important to note that this isn’t the same V6 as the E43 AMG, producing just 329 hp and 354 lb-ft of torque. A seven-speed automatic transmission is standard.

Owners of the rear-wheel-drive model can expect an EPA-estimated 20 mpg in the city, 29 mpg on the highway, and 23 mpg combined, regardless of body style. The 4Matic all-wheel-drive Coupe loses a digit on the highway, but is otherwise equally efficient.

Prices for the E400 start at $55,425 for the rear-drive Coupe, $57,975 for the 4Matic Coupe, and $63,525 for the E400 Cabriolet.

Mercedes-Benz E-Class


The E550 Coupe and Cabriolet is the last non-AMG E-Class on the market to use a V8 engine. Its 4.7-liter, twin-turbocharged V8 packs 402 hp and 443 lb-ft of torque. Expect to hit 60 mph in 4.9 seconds regardless of body style.

The lighter E550 Coupe returns an EPA-estimated 18 mpg in the city, 26 mpg on the highway, and 21 mpg combined. The Cabriolet loses one point in each metric.

The E550 Coupe starts at $61,575, while the Cabriolet demands $70,025.

Mercedes-Benz E-Class


The quickest E-Class until the 2018 E63 AMG arrives, the E43 follows in the footsteps of the C43 AMG, offering up a 3.0-liter, twin-turbocharged V6 with 396 hp and 384 lb-ft of torque through a standard 4Matic all-wheel-drive system. That’s good enough to scoot this sedan-only model to 60 mph in just 4.5 seconds and on to a limited top speed of 155 mph.

Unsurprisingly, fuel economy suffers, with an EPA-estimated 18 mpg city, 25 mpg highway, and 21 combined. Prices start at $73,395.
