After that, prices drop to £140. The rest of the cabin is made up of high-quality materials — glossy wood trim, brushed metal switches and trim finishes and high quality carpets all help it feel very luxurious inside. I did add Techron fuel injection cleaner and engine startup is much smoother than when I purchased it. For us, the Mercedes E-Class Coupe is one of the best-looking large coupes in recent years. There are changes to the steering and ride quality that make it more quiet and comfortable. When tested with summer performance tires, the E350 sedan stopped in just 110 feet, while an E350 4Matic wagon with summer tires stopped in 109 feet -- pretty impressive for a weighty family hauler.
Under the hood, the E250 Bluetec relies on a turbocharged 2. Interior Design and Special Features The cabin of the 2014 Mercedes-Benz E-Class looks almost identical to its predecessor at first glance, but there are meaningful changes here. The E550 sedan also features leather upholstery optional on lesser four-door models. If you opt for the digital dials, the entire dashboard looks as if it's filled with one screen — giving the Coupe a hi-tech feel similar to that of the S-Class limousine. There are also interior tweaks, a new suite of safety technologies and an auto stop-start system.
Mercedes also offers a Night Package that ads gloss black trim and bigger wheels for extra cost. In terms of acceleration to 60 mph, Edmunds testing demonstrated that the E-Class runs the gamut from the E250's respectable 7. Finally, the Keyless Go package tacks on keyless entry and ignition, a power trunk lid sedan only; wagon has a standard power liftgate and, for the sedan and wagon, a hands-free feature that both opens and closes the trunk or liftgate when you wave your foot under the rear bumper. This engine also powers the E400 Hybrid, but there is an additional lithium-ion battery pack and an electric motor that contribute 27 hp and 184 lb-ft of torque. Its soundtrack doesn't stir the soul, but neither is it loud nor immediately identifiable as a diesel. This car impresses us time and again with its trifecta of refinement, performance and cutting-edge technology. The former consists of three options; the 2.
In Edmunds brake testing, an E350 sedan with all-season tires came to a stop from 60 mph in 121 feet, an average performance. The standard Agility Control adaptive dampers are good tech made even better by the optional sport calibration you can order. There's no avoiding the fact it feels like a really big car, however. Standard kit includes autonomous emergency braking, tyre pressure monitors and nine airbags, while active braking and evasive steering assist are also available, making the E-Class Coupe one of the safest cars on the road. The E550 goes big with a twin-turbocharged 4. Each E-Class is relatively comfortable and spacious by segment standards.
It has similar looks to the saloon, but incorporates a swoopier roof line and frameless windows that give it a sleeker look. The feeling from behind the wheel and sense of substance are quite different between the less-expensive Infiniti and the Merc. Zero to 60 times does not guarantee the accuracy of any of the Mercedes 0-60 mph times. The nine-speed automatic gearbox fitted to all models is smooth and shifts quickly, so you rarely find that the car is in the wrong gear, and the cabin remains calm and quiet from low speed right up to motorway blasts. The ambient lighting, additional aluminum accents and central clock give it a richer look.
The E350 wagon also includes a power liftgate, a rearview camera and a rear-facing third-row seat. Rear airbags are a stand-alone option. The E 220 d has the latest 2. The new M276 bi-turbo V6 is the really big story here. The latter tends to represent the model that most humans on Earth think of when they think of. Then in the middle of 2014 comes this E400 and also an E400 4Matic.
Luxury models come with 17-inch alloy wheels and a traditional grille with a separate hood ornament, while Sport models switch to 18-inch wheels, a two-bar grille with an integrated three-pointed star, and a sport-tuned suspension. Other sport coupes handle more aggresivle but for daily driving on regular roads I'd rather have a firm but comfortable ride. The E-Class Coupe comes with a mixture of petrol and diesel engines. Any E63 can be outfitted with carbon-ceramic brakes. Today we're trying the upgraded and massaged fourth-generation known internally as C207.
Notably, the E400 Hybrid sedan has the same trunk capacity as any other E-Class sedan, as its lithium-ion battery pack is housed in the engine bay rather than in a space-eating trunk location. This isn't quite a full-on performance model like an , but it has a 435bhp 3. The ride is a little tight, which is a little sportier than the sedan, also of my choosing. Most other E-Class models are mechanically unchanged apart from a new electric power steering system, which actually doesn't feel much different from the previous steering system. Introduction Although the 2014 Mercedes-Benz E-Class has received only a midcycle refresh, the list of updates is dizzying. The V6 bi-turbo gets much better than the V8 while being only 0. Here are some side-by-side comparison pictures so you can judge for yourself! The changes to the interior are subtle but noticeable.
