2006 Mercedes-Benz E-Class E320 CDI 4dr Sedan (3.2L 6cyl Turbodiesel 5A)


The E320 CDI is top notch and well worth the 50G+ price tag. Acceleration is smooth and effortless, the interior is attractive, quiet, and comfortable. It is literally a pleasure to drive back and forth to work. If the power, ride, and handling don't lift your spirits, the sound system surely will. This car has become my private decompression chamber. I look forward to driving it each and every day. It has that quality of ride and handling only the Germans seem able to pull off - firm yet compliant, and tight yet not punishing or noisy. It's as though the bad elements arising from the road are edited out, yet you're still left with outstanding feel and handling.

Best Features

The engine, of course, is my favorite feature (the torque!). The auxiliary heating that comes with the CDI engine puts out warmth within seconds of starting the car. I did not expect this as a positive aspect of owning the diesel. It's a great feature if you encounter freezing Winters, like I do.

Worst Features

Plain Jane styling, particularly the side view, still needs to come up a notch. A good-looking car, but not particularly striking or beautiful. It needs more character infused into its looks. The stock wheels are also uninteresting - especially for a car with this heritage and price.
