The Mercedes-Benz E-Class is not the most recently redesigned midsize sedan in its segment, but it remains the benchmark for the segment. Yes, a car that dates back to 2017 with a refresh for 2021 is still one of the best midsize luxury sedans you can buy. There are quite a few reasons for that. It has superb powertrains on offer from the entry-level to the high-performance AMG models. It has superb interior design with top-notch materials. And, beyond the sedan, it's available in a variety of body styles: coupe, convertible and wagon. Even with the V8 models currently unavailable, the E-Class still features a turbocharged four-cylinder and a pair of six-cylinder engines that offer impeccable smoothness, power and refinement. The interior in particular looks as fresh as the day it launched with its metal trimmings and vents, wood accents and flashy ambient lighting and screens. It also features up-to-date Mercedes infotainment and voice controls thanks to the 2021 refresh. Then there is the body style and trim level selection. In addition to the traditional sedan, there are coupe, convertible and All Terrain wagon versions. The coupe is particularly sharp with its pillarless hardtop design, and the wagon offers impressive practicality. And if you need performance, the AMG 53 variants offer plenty of power and impressive handling. This level of selection is practically impossible to find in this segment. If the E-Class has one weakness, it's the lack of hybrid or ultra-high performance models. Without the V8-powered AMG 63 options for 2022, the E-Class is temporarily outgunned by the BMW M5, Cadillac CT5-V Blackwing, Porsche Panamera Turbo and Audi RS 6 Avant. On the opposite end of the spectrum, BMW, Audi and Porsche all have plug-in hybrid variants in this size range, too.

The E-Class was given a mid-cycle refresh for the 2021 model year, so updates for 2022 are very minimal.
