2012 Mercedes-Benz E-Class E350 Sport 4dr Sedan (3.5L 6cyl 7A)
Just got my new 2012 E350 Sport Sedan after trading in my 2011.
The new engine is remarkably responsive, quick, and nimble.
The increase in horsepower from 268 to 302 was the best thing Mercedes could have done to improve the E350.
Fuel economy is unbelievable - I'm getting 33 mpg at 65 mph in cruise control.
Got the Premium 2 pkg. with the xenon lights, Keyless Go, etc., and these added options make the car the best new vehicle I have ever owned.
The addition of 2 new audio speakers (from 12 to 14) on the Harman Karmin audio system's logic 7 surround sound system makes the car a moving sound stage.
Addition of weather to the Sirius traffic and radio option is magnificent.
New audio system; new engine with increased horsepower and acceleration and increased fuel economy; addition of weather info to the Sirius package; new sport steering wheel when AMG wheels package is selected; ventilated heated and cooled front seats; multicontour driver's seat with massage.
All in all, a truly magnificent automobile.
They should still have leather as a standard feature.
I had to pay 1670 dollars as an option.
Otherwise, the car, to me, is perfect.
