2012 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Professional Review

...Additional safety features include: Standard Attention Assist system measures steering behavior and other parameters to sense driver fatigue Optional automatic high-beam headlights Optional blind spot and lane departure warning systems Optional night vision system E63 AMG The automaker's high-performance division, AMG, has produced its own variant of the midsize luxury sedan.

1996 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Professional Review

...Only potential sharpshooters or assassins will want to try it. You must aim the key fob at directly the precise point on the rearview mirror to activate it. The seats are still as firm as ever, allowing you to drive for hours without undue fatigue. And make no mistake, you will drive this car. One romp through a corner or down your favorite road will convince you thiscar is an improvement over the previous model. Steering is quick, sharp, and communicates more with the driver in the best German tradition. The rack-and-pinion steering system itself is all new this year and much more effective...

...Combined with an electric motor that makes 27 hp and 184 lb-ft of torque, the E400 should pull away from stoplights and cut through traffic with bullying ease. Mercedes says the E400 Hybrid uses the same body as the current E-Class sedan, meaning buyers won't need to compromise passenger or cargo space for the sake of greener driving. The automaker also notes that its new "modular" hybrid powertrain can accommodate both gasoline and diesel engines. Mercedes already plans to offer a diesel hybrid variant in Europe, so it's conceivable that a diesel hybrid E-Class could reach our shores in a...

1996 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Professional Review

...Driven normally, the E420 is a smooth, quiet and solid luxury sedan. It doesn't need a super-stiff, spine-cracking suspension to handle the demands of an enthusiastic driver. Driven aggressively, the E420 will slice through the sharpest curves on any road short of a race course. Underneath the E420, Mercedes engineers made a radical break with the past. They replaced the recirculating ball system with power-assisted rack-and-pinion steering. The old suspension was replaced by modern double wishbone front system. Those improvements give the car an agile, athletic, lighter and more nimble feel...

1996 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Professional Review

...Considering that it weighs more than 3,600 pounds, it's surprisingly nimble. The one time I was really glad we had the Mercedes was the night Phil and I drove his friend Zak back home to Jackson County in a freezing drizzle. It was so bad, the expressway was closed in some places and there were a number of cars in the ditch. The Mercedes never faltered or lost its footing. At ti like that, it's reassuring to have antilock brakes and electronic traction control. She: There are so many good things to say about the Mercedes, but I keep coming back to the way it looks. We had a smoke silver paint...

1996 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Professional Review

...Price of E300 diesel slides from $41,000 to $39,900. Untouched, thankfully, is that purposeful handling and feel so unique to Mercedes; a sense of perpetual coddling of owners and a show of inexhaustible performance from a mechanical object that seems to have been carved from a single piece of stainless steel. Rottweilers are equally capable, durable, reliable and hefty. The E320's suspension, as always, is biased toward ride comfort but without insulating springs and shocks from what is happening beneath the wheels. Those wheels and tires are wider to further improve excellent grip, which...

1996 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Professional Review

...Aerodynamics is obviously the name of the game in today's styling. In keeping with the theme that accommodates low exterior drag yet provides interior room, Mercedes' stylists have come up with a shape that possesses an impressive 0.29 coefficient of drag. As the car slides through the air with the greatest of ease, so do its driver and the up to four passengers. It wouldn't be a Mercedes-Benz without a complete range of comfort and convenience items. The E is downright spacious, especially in the rear. In the driver's compartment, all controls are within easy reach of what could be called a...

1994 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Professional Review

...That's because Lexus and Infiniti prices are moving up as Mercedes-Benz prices are holding steady or -- gulp! -- in the case of the E320 sedan, coming down. More efficient production processes, a more simplified options lineup and favorable currency exchange rates now allow Mercedes-Benz to sell the E320 for $42,500, versus $49,900 for the comparable 1993 Mercedes-Benz 300E Standard sedan. By comparison, the Lexus GS 300 comes in at around $38,000. Is the new Merced es-Benz $4,000 better than the Lexus? Yep! The 1994 Mercedes-Benz E-Class cars include the 300 Diesel; the tested...

1992 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Professional Review
Source: that V-8. What you don`t get, other than the glove box, is a lot of room in the back seat. The taller the front-seat occupants, the less the leg room in back. Base price is $55,800. The $1,300 guzzler tax and 10 percent luxury tax on the amount over $30,000 will put you on the $60,000 fringe. Options and sales tax will help you cross the fringe with ease. In terms of standard equipment, you get automatic transmission, power Brakes and steering, automatic climate control, leather upholstery, power seats, power windows, power central locking, cruise control, AM-FM stereo with cassette...
