2019 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Engine

"The E-Class is a comfortable cruiser, with Sport and Sport+ drive modes dialing in a little extra athleticism when you want it. The standard suspension system maintains a silky, composed ride without getting too floaty. The rapidly adjusting air suspension system is an appealing option, though the E-Class is pleasant with just the standard suspension."-Cars.USnews

2019 Mercedes Benz E450 is powered by 3.0L Biturbo V6 engine making 362 horses and 369-pound-feet of torque. It is mated to the class-leading 9G-TRONIC transmission that gives it excellent performance and increased fuel efficiency. Power can be channeled to all four wheels via the 4MATIC all-wheel-drive system.

Compared to the last year's E 400 sedan, the E 450 has a more powerful V6 engine that increases total power by 33 horsepower. The 9-speed automatic system has more gear ratios, so the transmission will shift gears more often to keep the engine in its power band. Lighter components have been used to ensure quiet shifting work, more efficiency, and comfort.

With this increment in power, Merc 450 sedan sits at the pedestal of this comparison. Audi A6 and BMW 550i tie for the second spot while the Volvo S90 produces the least power due to relatively lower engine displacement (2.0-liter).

Acceleration

The E Class sedan is built to cocoon you in the oasis of comfort and luxury. But the E 450 has remarkable pulling power. This turbocharged engine can put many engines with more cylinders to shame. The E Class sedan when equipped with this engine can thrash 0-60 mile marker in sub-5-second window.

The engine has enough gusto for your merging, passing, highway cruising, and spirited driving. The 4MATIC is available as standard equipment. It ensures better traction in a variety of bad terrain scenarios.

The E Class has its priorities set right. The engine has some pretty solid performance but it is a cruiser first. As you put the foot down, you won't find a sense of urgency. The motor was engineered to aid in effortless cruising ability and not take over sports cars.

Ride and Handling

Most of the people buy the E Class because they want to reach their destination as comfortably as possible. The suspension is pretty good at tackling road undulations and the cabin ambiance is super quiet. If it is fitted with optional air suspension, the ride feels as if you're on a cushion that glides 2-inches over the tarmac.

The E 450 is equally relaxing in town as on the highway. The 9G-TRONIC gearbox is slick and provides for quick gear changes when overtaking is required and wafts along when you just feel like cruising on the endless roads.

Braking

Mercedes Benz E450 is equipped with 14.2-inch ventilated front and 12.6 inches rear discs. E450 weighs in at 4,134 pounds. Data from the braking test is unavailable for E450. However, the pedal feel is firm. The application of brakes is followed by a progressive slowing of the car. The brakes will not let you down and stop the car within the safety margins.

2019 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Interior

"First-rate interior all around, distinguished by design. While the Audi A6 is modern cool, the Benz is timeless class. While the BMW 5 Series favors space and logic, the Benz is sensual and aesthetic. Upholstery, touch points, surfaces, infotainment system integration - all top-shelf."-Edmunds

The inside is pleasing to the eye. The E450 is super spacious from the inside. Its supportive front seats come with electrical adjustment and memory system to make you feel comfortable. The E Class sedan heavily borrows from the flagship - S Class. The sweeping digital dashboard is a treat to look at. Mercedes E Class blends technology with class better than other marquees.

In a time when cars are adopting tech at an exponential rate. Even A-B commuters are equipped with state of the art smartphone integration. Luxuries like heated and ventilated seats are available as standard options for many budget cars. What about the cars that defined luxury? The Mercedes E Class brings in luxury that was pretty much unheard of.

E Class brings in equipment like the air cabin fragrance system that makes the sedan smell like a fancy hotel room. With so many ways to diffuse it, it seems the E Class has a fragrance for different moods. It works along with ambient lighting. The surround cameras provide automatic feed when the car is in narrow spaces.

Infotainment System

The standard satellite navigation system is good but not like AMG models as they get enhanced features. The shortcut buttons to use the beautiful infotainment are placed in the natural hand-resting position when driving the car.

The main attraction is a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster which is placed adjacent to the central screen of the same size. The Merc also offers a 4G LTE in-car Wi-Fi system, rear-seat entertainment package, and wireless phone-charging. To work the touchpad a bit of skill is needed but when you drive it daily, it gets to you and you feel very connected.

Cargo volume

E450 boot space is 13.1 cu ft. There's more than enough space to carry bags or large suitcases but the Mercedes raised boot opening means it's not quite as easy to pack full of bulky items.

2019 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Exterior

"With the latest revamp complete, the 2019 E-Class sedan and wagon look fresh but familiar. We like the understated nature of this German luxury car, and think its design will hold up well into the future. If you're looking for massive grilles and head-turning flair, you'll probably want to shop elsewhere. But most E-Class buyers appreciate substance as much as style." - KelleyBlueBook

The E Class carries that understated nature of high-end German cars very well. The design follows subtle lines and if you are looking for something that has massive street massive, then your money is better spent elsewhere. Although, the design has been around for a while now. It doesn't show any signs of aging. Most E Class buyers actually appreciate this understated opulence.

2019 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Competition

Mercedes Benz E 450 vs Audi A6

The Audi A6 is a powerful and luxurious car which also offers more room in the back seat. The A6 also triumphs the E 450 sedan in rear cargo space. The Merc has more power at its disposal, and it outperforms the A6 in 0-60 mph run. Choosing between these two can be tough and you won't be wrong if you choose either one of these cars.

Mercedes Benz E 450 vs BMW 540i

The choice between these two cars boils down to your personal preference. If you don't like to drive much and you are going to be chauffeured a lot, then the E Class sedan is better suited for your needs. When it comes to BMW 540i, it is all about responsive steering, sport-tuned suspension, and enthusiastic drive.

Mercedes Benz E 450 vs Volvo S90

Volvo S90 is powered by twin charged 2.0-liter engine which produces 316 horsepower. When compared to the Merc, the Volvo S90 lacks raw power. Mercedes E 450 has a 3.0-liter engine that produces 362 horsepower. The S90 will offer better mpg numbers and larger rear cargo space than the Merc. Let's face it, the S90 struggles to beat the charm of the three-pointed star.

2019 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Final Verdict

The E Class sedan features an improved powertrain which churns out 33 horsepower more. The engine isn't eager to pick up pace but it is remarkably quiet. Mercedes intends the E Class to be comfortable before being anything else. The cabin is well insulated, once inside it really feels like you have been separated from the outside world. The premium sedan starts at a price tag of $60,945.

If you are looking for something that is athletic and will follow up with your mad steering inputs. Then the E Class wouldn't be a befitting choice. Even with Sport and Sport Plus modes, the E Class was never meant to be a track-day weapon. At its best, the E Class is quick but it never wants to upset the comfort of the occupants.

This sedan justifies the Mercedes tag, it offers unmatched comfort. When equipped with the air suspension, the ride quality is too good to be true. The E Class sedan gobbles up potholes like they were never there. It is also equipped with state of the art semi-autonomous driving capability.

Pros

Segment-leading luxury and comfort

Semi-autonomous driving tech

Refined powertrain

Wide ranges of choice – from docile inline four to snappy AMG inline six
