About the Mercedes-Benz E-Class

Mercedes-Benz E-Class

The Mercedes-Benz E-Class officially launched in 1993. From the 1960s onwards, Mercedes would add Einspritzmotor (literally fuel injection engine) to predecessor models. When all engines became fuel injected, Mercedes took the character E and made it into the car we have today. Reportedly, the E-Class is one of the German luxury car brand's most popular lines.

The current generation launched in 2017 and is known as the W213 series. It is based upon the modular MRA architecture, meaning the sedan, cabriolet and coupé share the same platform.

The E-Class has a very high level of equipment and materials, making it, as one reviewer described it, a "beautiful motor car". Some of the luxury features fitted include massage seats with air-cooling, an adjustable surround sound system (which can be biased towards the rear if desired) and a clever augmented reality navigation system. Also available are things like 64-colour adjustable ambient interior lighting.

From 1 October 2020, the E-Class comes with a 5-year, unlimited-kilometre warranty.

For drivers seeking more performance, Mercedes produces two AMG-line models, the E 53 4MATIC+ and the E 63 S 4MATIC+. With more powerful engines, sports suspension and brakes, these two models make the E-Class more thrilling to drive.
