High Style and Driver Assist Tech Define New Mercedes-Benz E300 Sedan
While a line-up of premium luxury class upstarts scramble for admission to the exclusive club, the new Mercedes-Benz E300 4Matic sedan glides past the velvet ropes with a sense of entitlement.
This 10th generation edition of the E Series is glorious. The new exterior is a tautly sculpted athletic skin of aluminum and high strength steel which helps reduce overall weight by 150 lbs from the previous E Series
A new 2.0-liter inline turbo 4 cylinder engine pumps an energetic 241 horsepower while delivering 22-mpg city and 29 mpg highway mileage.
Inside the cabin is spacious and well appointed with power front seating clad in the MB-Tex faux upholstery that satisfies even leather fetishists.
The high tech array of the E-Series centers on a 12.3” high res display and console mounted a touch pad, which is quite intuitive.
Most impressive in the new E 300 is the package of driver assist features that skirt autonomous driving, including emergency stop, lane change and lane keeping assist, cross-traffic and evasive steering assist.
Base priced at $54,000 the sport equipped Mercedes-Benz E300 sedan rolls in at $71,000.
