One of the most classical luxury cars that can be found on the market. 2016 Mercedes E Class sedan is a luxury mid size sedan that comes with all those advanced features that Mercedes currently has to offer. Although comparing to some of its rivals it still doesn’t have enough exterior refinement as Lexus, Cadillac, BMW and Audi model.
Although to be honest it would be lie to say that this model doesn’t look good. Interior comes with a lot of luxurz and safetz is one of the most competitive segment of this car since it has some of the best safetz gear that can be found on the market. It also comes with several engine choices that raneg from modest 4 cylinder to much larger options. One of these is the new engine that was introduced this year, which replaced the old naturally aspired V8 with its turbocharged power.
Design – Inside and Outside loook
Exterior is little bit less characterized than the one seen in similar luxury cars, but it still has the four lamp headlights and mighty looking grille that comes with the large Mercedes sign in the middle. Merc didn’t took huge risks when it comes to this year’s model styling and it looks almost the same as the other low key Mercedes models. There are different versions of E Class on the offer, with sedan version being the longest one, and two door coupe and convertible being around seven inches shorter. Sedan is also between side windows.
2016 Mercedes E Class Sedan comes with very comfortable seats, nice ergonomics, leather upholstery and plenty of head and leg room for both front and back passengers. When it comes to cabin styling we can see some really luxurious materials present. On the dash everything is covered in soft touch surfaces, and comparing to some older models this year E Class comes with some really noticeable new cues in the interior front part.
