Benefits of Driving a 2017 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Unavailable
The Mercedes Benz E-Class is a mid-sized luxury car, in competition with Audi's A6 sedan, BMW's 5-Series and the Lexus GS. All offer plenty of space, with an array of powerful engines, but none offer the kind of refinement and ease of operation that the new E-Class has. The E-Class also offers great fuel economy for a luxury vehicle, making due (in E300 guise) with a turbocharged 4-cylinder while most of its competitors use bigger and thirstier engines. While the engine in the E300 is small, thanks to turbocharging and an advanced transmission, acceleration remains competitive.
What's new for 2017?
The Mercedes-Benz E-Class gets a full redesign for 2017, with fresh, smooth exterior styling and a slightly longer wheelbase for more interior space. The most impressive aspects of the redesign though, are mostly related to the new driver assist functions. When properly equipped, the 2017 E-Class will go down the road with a minimum of driver intervention, making driving easier than ever before.

The Mercedes-Benz E-Class comes in three basic flavors, E300, E300 4MATIC and AMG E43. E300 models are powered by a 2.0L turbocharged 4-cylinder engine making 241 horsepower and a stout 273 lb-ft of torque. Mercedes claims that the sprint to 60 mph takes just 6.2 seconds in E300 guise, while the AMG E43 cuts that time down to 4.5 seconds. Power is sent to the rear-wheels in the E300 and AMG E43, but the E300 4MATIC gets Mercedes-Benz' all-wheel drive system, improving traction in tricky conditions. Both acceleration and fuel economy are aided by an advanced 9-speed automatic transmission, standard across the entire range. The transmission always seems to know what gear to be in, saving fuel on the highway while still offering immediate kickdown for passing.
