The Mercedes E Class has had its ups and downs. The old E class from the 1980s and early 1990s was a four wheeled tank. In fact many of them are still on the road, if you travel to sunnier climates, most of the taxis are E Class cars from the late 1980s and early 1990s.
This car has a range of improvements, Mercedes says the improvements are extensive. In my mind experience, I think Mercedes still has to win back a lot of lost customers from the past decade, whether it admits it or not. I can still remember speaking to people 6 or 7 years ago who said that they would never buy another Mercedes.
For a marque that I deeply like, this was sad to hear. But things have moved on from then and Mercedes has worked hard to improve its image.
This new car has great refinement and and stylish looks. There is a much higher quality feel to it, than older models.
Any of the diesel engines
