2014 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Diesel E250 Sport BlueTEC 4dr Sedan (2.1L 4cyl Turbodiesel 7A)


Review

I test drove one of these and wasn't very impressed. The engine under load sounds like an overstressed rental car. If you don't need the space, the BMW 3-series diesel is a much better car for less money. Or take a look at the A6 TDI.

2014 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Diesel E250 Sport BlueTEC 4dr Sedan (2.1L 4cyl Turbodiesel 7A)


Review

Bought my E 350 new in July 2014. The car stickered at $61,250. Went to trade it in on another MB product in September 2015 and the dealership would only give me $37,500! Car was in perfect condition with only 8,000 miles. I would call this terrible depreciation. If you buy a new MB plan on keeping it for a LONG time.

2014 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Diesel E250 Luxury BlueTEC 4MATIC 4dr Sedan AWD (2.1L 4cyl Turbodiesel 7A)


Review

The 2014 E250 Bluetec 4matic has a vibration at higher speeds that sometimes goes away once the car finds the right gear.

I have 700 miles and the computer on the dash says I am getting 34.5mpg. The car gets over 40 mpg on the highway easily.

I bought the2014 E250 Bluetec for the fuel efficiency, the longevity, and it is the only E class they had that still has the 3 point star on the hood.

I have read all the horror stories about Mercedes Benz but at 700 miles I have not had a single problem. I think I will keep this one for a long time.


Best Features

The cruise control is pretty neat. I have the base sound system and it is better than the Hamon Kardon imho.


Worst Features

The light cluster for the dome light and the moon roof have the Mercedes Benz version of On-star which are just in the way. Not sure why Mercedes Benz nickel and dimes you with Navigation and back up camera and XM radio being extras at this price point should be standard. Soften the suspension on the Luxury models, the comfort suspension needs improvement. Not everyone wants to feel every bump in the road!

2014 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Diesel E250 Luxury BlueTEC 4dr Sedan (2.1L 4cyl Turbodiesel 7A)


Review

If you can, order the active multi contour driver's seat. It makes driving a real pleasure. The 40 plus mpg highway adds to the experience. Diesels are making quite a resurgence in the states, and for good reason.
The suspension on the Luxury truly provides a much smoother ride than the Sport model. I highly recommend it and, at a minimum, try to drive both before you buy. It is becoming more difficult to find this type of "your father's" luxury car ride. Look no farther than this automobile.
Buy one and enjoy the ride!

Update as of 4/15/2016 -- Since I penned my original review, my statement regarding a resurgence of diesel cars in the states has taken a turn for the worse, given Volkswagen's troubles with testing. As recently as this week, Mercedes has come under scrutiny for exactly the same testing problems which falsely yield better mpg and emissions than reality might suggest. I will be pretty furious with Mercedes Benz if they were involved with this controversy. I purchased my car with the environment in mind and will feel deceived if they mishandled this ethical issue.

2014 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Diesel E250 Sport BlueTEC 4MATIC 4dr Sedan AWD (2.1L 4cyl Turbodiesel 7A)


Review

Just picked up a loaded, ordered spec 2014 E250. Selected this primarily for the Distronic Plus with Steering Assist, diesel range and AWD. Cost not a particular concern. M-B USA definitely miss the point here for all their 'marketing prowess' - international versions have smarter equipment choices. As everyone notes: no power folding mirrors!? Forget the rest of the gizmos, not being able to fold in mirrors easily in NYC in a luxury is incredible. Tiny nav screen, no available rear heated seats, old fashioned Apple 32-pin connector on s new 2014 model).. c'mon how much are the bean-counters at M-B USA really saving here? Not a good first impression compared to my BMW Porsche or Range Rover.


Best Features

Distronic Plus with Steering Assist plus AWD diesel - the only reasons to be in this car. Decent highway cruiser, which is all it is for me.


Worst Features

Power folding mirrors, larger nav screen, rear heated seats, lighted light switch symbols (duh!). Front end lacks distinct presence - could be a C, CLA, SLK whatever.
