Edmunds' Expert Review

Even though it's now in its seventh year and due for a change in '03, the 2002 E-Class offers state-of-the-art safety and performance technology wrapped in a somber but classy body.

vehicle overview

The booming economy and generally healthy stock market of the mid-'90s sent luxury sedan sales through the roof. Under these promising conditions, the very popular E-Class has proven to be a solid home run since its last redesign in 1996.

Four different models are available. The E320 Sedan and Wagon (available with 4matic all-wheel drive) come equipped with a strong 3.2-liter V6 engine making 221 horsepower that is capable of propelling these models from a standstill to 60 mph in 7 to 8 seconds, depending on equipment. The E430 Sedan (also available with 4matic all-wheel drive) has a 4.3-liter V8 good for 275 horsepower and runs to 60 mph in the low- to mid-6s. The pavement-searing AMG-tuned E55 comes with a massive 349-horsepower 5.5-liter V8, which will catapult this "E" to 60 in just 5.4 seconds. All models have a TouchShift automanual transmission, which lets the driver select his own gears or leave the slushbox to do the dirty work.

Outside, the E wears a familiar face, as the basic design dates back to 1996. The E320 and E430 Sedans are available with a Sport package, which includes AMG aerodynamic enhancements, specific foglights and 17-inch wheels and tires. If you want more than just AMG looks, snag the E55 and get the more powerful V8, 18-inch wheels and thicker stabilizer bars.

Inside, the multi-function steering wheel, large instrument cluster and central display screen for the optional (but not recommended, as it is somewhat frustrating to use) Cockpit Management and Data (COMAND) system provide the E-Class driver with a wealth of information. Side airbags are standard in each of the four doors, as are inflatable side curtains for increased head protection. TeleAid is also a standard service and can put you in touch with emergency personnel if your airbags deploy or if you suffer a sudden medical problem.

In addition to the airbags and TeleAid, the E-Class comes with other standard safety equipment, including antilock brakes with brake assist, traction control and stability control, that keeps the E-Class going in the direction in which it's pointed. A BabySmart system automatically deactivates the front passenger airbag when a special dealer-installed child seat is present, but in an E-Class, there's plenty of room in back for the kiddie seats.

Thanks to a long list of safety and luxury features, the E-Class continues to represent the epitome of luxury, giving its owners a technologically magnificent vehicle in a striking package. These cars make a statement -- they say, "I'm rich." But they add, "I'm also an intelligent buyer who wants a comfortable and safe car, and that's what I'm paying for."

Nothing like it!
Kevin DiBacco,10/21/2010
I test drove the BMW, Saab, Audi, caddy. The e320 blows them away. Benz is the top dog!
Who Needs An SUV?
I hate mini-vans! Give me a car or a truck. A MV is neither. Anyway, it was time to replace the wife's van and she wanted a new one. "How about an SUV?" I said. "NO WAY" came the reply. The not so obvious but perfect answer was an E320 4-Matic Wagon. Room for the "Soccer Mom" chores, AWD for the snow, and handling that makes you forget it's a wagon! 23+ MPG at speed, try that in an SUV. Just go buy one!
Elegant traveling for the family
I've been looking at some of the new 08 E350 wagons offered from Mercedes and although they're beautiful, my 02 E320 wagon still looks nearly as sleek and stylish, so I may hang on to it for a little longer. the car has almost 100k miles on it and it still runs like it did brand new! (always used synthetic motor oil and premium gasoline) I just put new Continetal tires on it along w/ a wheel alignment and the car doesnt vibrate at all even when cruising in excess of 80 mph. This car still gets 24.5 mpg on the highway! It has plenty of cargo room and AWD for the snow making it perfect for ski trips up to the mountains. while its not sexy, you gotta admit its stylish for a family car.
Great car
Elmer 3,05/01/2006
Love the automobile. Tire wear has been good. I just recently replaced them. This is the best experience I have had with any automobile in this area. My first experience with a lexury automoble. Bad experience with light bulbs- I have never owned an automobile that burned out so many, Merecedes replaced all of them under warrenty except the last two. They were marker lights and were easy to replace.Total cost for both was $2.25. Experience with the dealership has been great except that a mechanic missed a bad tire once. Cupholder in front is not the greatest.

Should I lease or buy a 2002 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.
