Mercedes E-Class Overview
The Mercedes E-Class is classed as a mid-sized executive car and is produced by the German automobile manufacturing company Mercedes-Benz. This range of vehicles has been in production since 1994 when the E-Class name was first used as a replacement for the 190 range. The E-Class name was first used on the W124 model which was released in 1985, but the E-class name was not used until the facelift version in 1994. These cars are extremely comfortable and spacious with real luxurious features. They have great safety features and are well refined. They are expensive to buy and not as good as such competitors as the BMW 5-series. Does this sound like your experience of the Mercedes E-Class?
Mercedes E-Class History
The W124 (1984-96) was the first version to use the E-Class naming system, albeit not until the facelift version in 1994. This new naming system changed from the likes of 300E to E300 for all E-Class vehicles. This facelift and changing of naming system meant a new engine range and slight alterations to interior and exterior of the vehicle.
The W210 (1994-2003) gave the E-class a much more luxurious feel and took it to the more upper end of the mid-sized executive class. These cars were much more equipped than previous versions and had more features which increased the overall price of the vehicles. The look and quality of the E-Class cars was greatly improved.
The W211 (2003-09) was more like an evolution of the previous version but it was deemed more competitive to the class rival, the BMW 5-series. The W212 (2009-present) is a real classy looking vehicle and is the current version in production.
The Mercedes E-Class is available in many different engine sizes: 1.8, 2.0, 2.3, 2.4, 2.8, 3.2, 3.6, 4.2, 4.3, 5.0, 5.4, 6.0 and 6.2L petrol and 2.0, 2.2, 2.5, 2.7, 2.9, 3.0, 3.2 and 4.0L diesel engines. The smaller diesel engines are the more economical, offering up to 65mpg which is really good. Which engine do you have and how does it perform economically? Remember to consider the fuel type, engine size and age of vehicle when determining fuel economy.
