This car has been superseded by a newer model, click here to go to the latest Mercedes-Benz E-Class Saloon review.

Parkers overall rating: 4 out of 5 4.0

The cockpit is roomy and the seats are very supportive. High quality materials and attention to ergonomics creates a feel-good factor even when you’re stuck in a jam on the M25.

Plenty of space in the rear for adults and no shortage of head or legroom. It’s also a refined environment to travel in and feels very classy. Best in its class for passenger comfort although new model is better still.
