2010 Mercedes-Benz E-Class E550 4dr Sedan (5.5L 8cyl 7A)
Maybe I have been driving SUV's for too long, but I was stunned by the outstanding performance of the E550 four matic. While this car is not as fast as my 911 4S, it is close. The large seats are extremely comfortable and the driver dynamic multi contour seat is a must. My three kids have no problem sitting in the deep, roomy back seats. After owning nearly ever other make of vehicle, I am impressed.
Quickness, handling (similar to my old 5 series BMW), comfort, driver dynamic multi contour seat, rocking stereo, safety features, sporty looks. High residual makes it a great lease deal. Four matic is great in the snow, possible better than our Infiniti SUV.
I don't know why there is not a heated steering wheel, but I don't miss it. Driver dynamic multicontour seat should be offered for the passenger seat--this comes from my wife.
