ABOUT:The Mercedes-Benz E-Class is a range of executive cars manufactured by Mercedes-Benz in various engine and body configurations. The E initially stood for Einspritzmotor (German for fuel injection engine); a new feature in volume production vehicles at the time that the E-Class first appeared, with the E as a suffix to the engine nomenclature (e.g. 230E) in the 1950s. It was not until the launch of the facelifted W124 that the E was used as a prefix (i.e., E220) and the model referred to officially as the E-Class (or E-K lasse). At this time all Mercedes cars used fuel injection and the company felt it was not necessary to add this as a distinguishing feature. Due to the E-Class's size and durability, the cars also frequently serve as taxis in European countries. Older models like the W123 and W124 are used in Malaysia as inter-state taxis, and the W211 is used in Singapore as a taxi. Mercedes-Benz also offers special-purpose vehicles (e.g., police or ambulance modifications) from the factory.
The ride of the Mercedes E-Class is very smooth and exhilarating because of the aerodynamics and smooth steering and suspension. The assistance systems for driving and controls make everything very accessible to the driver. Automatic Climate control maintains a preferable temperature inside the car for both the rear and front passengers. Seat comfort level is also of very high standards. The roof systems keep the weather inside the car very preferable and pleasant. Tilting sunroof is excellent for a protection against the glare of the sun. The adaptive brake system with HOLD function, Attention Assist drowsiness detection system and Park tonic parking aid are parts of safety features. The airbags provide protection against impact injuries. Protection in cases of accidents comes in the form of safety passenger compartments, knee bags for the driver and passengers, cash-responsive head-restraints and standard active bonnet.
The canvas roof looks good up, and better down. You can stow/raise it at any speed up to about 25mph via a lever under a pad on the center armrest, and it disappears in 20 seconds. Up, it does a pleasingly insulated impression of the coupe (even replicating blindspots), and down it disappears cleanly into the boot, munching through all the boot space. But the slick lines once the roof has folded accentuate the best bits of the E's neat stance - especially the curved sweep over the rear wheel arch.
The range of engines will be impressive and useful once we get the full set in the UK. For the first time you'll be able to specify one of three diesels in a Merc convertible; a 170bhp E220CDI, a 204bhp E250CDI and a 231bhp E350CDI, all equipped with Merc's nice-to-the-environment Blue Efficiency tech. The big news with these three is that they hit pleasing numbers in terms of economy (53.3/52.3/41.5mpg respectively), but still manage decent performance figures and CO2 outputs. The two smaller four-cylinder diesels, for instance, still manage to clip to 62mph in 8.8 and 7.8 seconds, while the bigger, more brawny V6 in the E350 CDI drops that to a rapid 6.9 seconds to 62mph. You can put that down to 398lb ft and a respectable-for-class 1,845kg kerb weight. The petrol engines are very confusing for the specification-grazer because the numbers and badges are pretty similar. There are another pair of fours at the bottom: an E200 CGI with 184bhp that gets to 62mph in 8.6 seconds, and the 204bhp E250 CGI that hits 62mph in 7.8. Then there's the E350 CGI V6 with 292bhp that gets to 62mph in just 6.8 seconds, barely shading its diesel V6 counterpart. Broadly, there's not a bad engine in the range, though the base versions of the four-cylinder cars do start to struggle if you get particularly demanding on hilly traverses.
