The E-Class makes for an excellent bet if you want a first class comfort experience

Verdict – The 10th generation Mercedes E-Class LWB is a great product and it should satisfy all the needs of its target audience. The sedan has taken comfort levels to a whole new level. For those you want sheer luxury and comfort and of course the snob value that comes with a Merc badge should definitely consider this car. The long wheelbase makes sure you get S-Class levels of space and comfort and the E badge helps you save some monies over the S. Until the new 5-Series gets launched, it might be safe to day that the E is definitely the best in its segment and should bring in good sales for the automaker.

The Mercedes E-Class, however, misses out on some equipment

What’s Cool

* Looks very premium with great character
* Interiors are awesome, oodles of space and comfort
* Diesel engine is a power-packed unit
* Air Suspension makes the car glide smoothly

What’s Not So Cool

* Certain equipment like touch-screen infotainment system is missing
* No cupholders at the rear!

Alternatives: BMW 5-Series, Volvo S90, Jaguar XF, Audi A6
