2021 Mercedes-Benz E-Class video

Thanks to a subtle elegance in design, a premium interior, smooth ride, and excellent driver aids, it's easy to see why the Mercedes-Benz E-Class has long been a favorite luxury sedan of ours. Key updates this year only sweeten the package, elevating the E-Class to our top-rated luxury sedan ahead of last year's winner, the A-Class. The E-Class is offered in a variety of models, yet they all share a common theme of driving pleasure, refinement, and sophisticated tech. The newly-available and very intuitive MBUX infotainment system gives users a variety of methods for control, whether you prefer touch or voice. It also has an augmented reality overlay for navigation prompts, greatly reducing the amount of stress and anxiety when trying to get around unfamiliar city streets. The quiet interior provides all-day comfortable seats with plenty of adjustments for occupants of all sizes. If you have a lot of road trips planned, spring for the massaging seats. Trust me, you will not regret it. No matter the engine you choose, from the turbo 4-cylinder to the 6-cylinder, to even the 8-cylinder, the E-Class accelerates seamlessly, whether it's under the command of your right foot or the brains behind the clever adaptive cruise control system. And as you would expect from Mercedes, all this comes wrapped with an exquisite level of fit and finish and plenty of additional add-ons. Subtle and dignified, yet capable and comfortable, the E-Class is what you should picture when someone says "luxury sedan."

Should I lease or buy a 2021 Mercedes-Benz E-Class?

Is it better to lease or buy a car? Ask most people and they'll probably tell you that car buying is the way to go. And from a financial perspective, it's true, provided you're willing to make higher monthly payments, pay off the loan in full and keep the car for a few years. Leasing, on the other hand, can be a less expensive option on a month-to-month basis. It's also good if you're someone who likes to drive a new car every three years or so.
