2008 E-Class Overview

The Mercedes-Benz E-Class is an icon, a benchmark in its class.In many ways it epitomizes the brand.It's the company's best-selling line worldwide, and one of the best-selling Mercedes models in the United States.

The E-Class represents the middle range among Mercedes-Benz sedans: larger than the entry-level C-Class, but more trim and practical than the imposing S-Class.Nonetheless, today's E-Class is as big as an S-Class was in the 1970s.The E-Class sedans are big, roomy cars that are solid, safe, practical, comfortable, luxurious, and fast.The E-Class features some of the industry's most advanced safety technology, and it expresses what most people think of when they think of Mercedes: status in an elegant, understated fashion.

Yet the cost of operating the popular Mercedes E350, in terms of fuel consumption and maintenance, can be quite reasonable.And there is no better example of how far passenger car diesel technology has advanced than the Mercedes E320 Bluetec.With its advanced common-rail direct-injection turbodiesel engine, the E320 Bluetec accelerates from 0 to 60 mph in just 6.6 seconds, while delivering EPA-estimated fuel mileage of 23/32 city/highway mpg, and producing minimal exhaust emissions.The Mercedes-Benz E320 Bluetec was named World Green Car at the 2007 New York International Auto Show, and NewCarTestDrive.com chose it as one of its Best Commuter Cars that same year.

The 2008 Mercedes-Benz E-Class includes six models (nine, if you count the all-wheel-drive variants separately).Buyers can choose a sedan or wagon.They can choose among two V8s, a V6, and a turbocharged V6 diesel, and between rear-wheel drive and all-wheel drive.

For 2007, the Mercedes E-Class was freshened with more powerful engines, along with subtle styling changes, new interior elements, and a few tweaks for handling and safety.These changes helped the E-Class keep pace with such outstanding luxury competitors as the Audi A6, BMW 5 Series and Acura RL.

Also new for 2007 were the super-high-performance E63 AMG sedan and wagon, powered by a 507-hp 6.2-liter V8 that made the E63s the fastest E-Class models ever built.And though capable of monstrous acceleration (0 to 60 mph in just 4.3 seconds) and a top speed of 180 mph (were it not for electronics that limit top speed to 155 mph), these latest AMGs retain the touches of luxury expected at the upper end of the market.

For 2008, there are few changes to the E-Class lineup except for a new AMG Sport Package for the Mercedes E350 and Mercedes E550.
