Model Highlights

Four different models of the E-Class are now offered in the U.S. The E350 has a 268-horsepower, 3.5L V6; the E550 has a 382-horsepower, 5.5L V8; the high-performance E63 AMG has a 507-horsepower, 6.3L V8; and the E320 Bluetec comes with a 3.0L turbodiesel V6 that makes 208 horsepower and 388 lb-ft of torque.

The E350 and E63 are also available in a wagon body style in addition to the four-door sedan. The E350 and E550 have a 4MATIC all-wheel-drive system available. All models get a seven-speed automatic transmission.

The new 6.3L V8 in the E63 AMG is the first engine to be completely developed by AMG; it has four valves per cylinder, variable valve timing, bucket-style tappets, and a variable intake manifold.

The E63, as the performance leader of the line, can reach 60 mph in only 4.3 seconds; it can also be ordered with a performance package that lifts the 155-mph electronically limited top speed to 186 mph. It includes a specially tuned Airmatic sport suspension, a limited-slip differential, 19-inch alloy wheels, larger front brake discs, and an AMG sport steering wheel with paddle shifters.

Meanwhile, the E320 Bluetec is as clean as a modern gasoline car, according to Mercedes-Benz, and the 3.0L CDI V6 is ranked 32 highway in the EPA cycle.

Window curtain air bags and side-impact air bags are standard on the E-Class, along with PRE-SAFE, a system that tenses the seatbelts if it anticipates a collision, and closes the sunroof and side windows if it anticipates a loss of control.

Each of the E-Class models come very well equipped as luxury cars. Options include a hands-free system, DVD navigation, side window blinds, Sirius satellite radio, the Parktronic parking aid, bi-xenon headlamps with active curve illumination, and a panorama sunroof. A newly available AMG Sport Package adds much of the E63's appearance equipment to the E350 or E550.


Value Writeup

The E-Class range of luxury sedans and wagons can fit a wide range of needs, from the fast, showy, and exclusive E63 AMG to the more practical E350 and the economical, green-friendly E320 Bluetec diesel. Across the line, the E-Class has a very roomy interior and nice ride, both which make it well-suited for long trips. With 4MATIC all-wheel drive available on E350 and E550 models, the E-Class also makes a good all-weather bet for those who live in the Snow Belt, too.


Model News

For 2008, the Mercedes-Benz E-Class continues without major changes, but a new AMG Sport Package brings many of the appearance cues from the E63 AMG--including the flashy wheels, AMG steering wheel, and manual shift paddles--to the V6 E350 or V8 E550.

Also, the PRE-SAFE system is now standard across the entire E-Class line.


Pros

Performance (E550 and E63); fuel efficiency (E320 Bluetec); spacious interior; ride comfort.

A SOFTWARE CALIBRATION NUMBER (SCN) CODING RECEIVED ON THE AFFECTED VEHICLES DURING A RECENT WORKSHOP VISIT WAS INCORRECT. DEPENDING ON THE MODEL YEAR AND MODEL AFFECTED, THE RESULTS OF AN INCORRECT SCN CODING CAN AFFECT A NUMBER OF VEHICLE SAFETY AND EMISSION FUNCTIONS INCLUDING THE FOLLOWING TYPES OF FUNCTIONS: (1) THE FUEL GAUGE READINGS MAY BE INCORRECT; (2) A STUCK FUEL-LEVEL SENSOR MAY NOT BE DISPLAYED IN THE INSTRUMENT CLUSTER; (3) THE OBD SYSTEM MAY CAUSE THE CHECK ENGINE LIGHT TO ILLUMINATE INCORRECTLY; AND, (4) THE SPEEDOMETER MAY BE OUT OF TOLERANCE.

Consequence
IN THE EVENT OF A VEHICLE CRASH, THE ELECTRICAL FUEL PUMP MAY NOT RECEIVE A CRASH SIGNAL THAT IS REQUIRED FOR THE FUEL PUMP TO DISCONNECT AND PREVENT FUTURE FUEL DELIVERY AS DESIGNED.

DEALERS WILL RECODE THE SCN FREE OF CHARGE. THE RECALL IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN DURING AUGUST 2008. OWNERS MAY CONTACT MERCEDES-BENZ AT 1-800-367-6372.

Crash Test Note
Results based on a 35 MPH frontal crash and 38.5 MPH side crash. Results are reported in a range of one to five stars, with five stars indicating the best crash protection for vehicles within the same weight class. This test used driver and passenger belts and airbags.

NHTSA Rollover Rating

Rollover Note
The Rollover Resistance Rating is an estimate of your risk of rolling over if you have a single vehicle crash. It does not predict the likelihood of that crash. The Rollover Resistance Rating utilizes a "fishhook" maneuver which is a series of abrupt turns at varying speeds to see how "top-heavy" a vehicle is. The more "top-heavy" the vehicle, the more likely it is to roll over. The lowest rated vehicles (1-star) are at least four times more likely to roll over than the highest rated vehicles (5-stars).
