Vinyl vs Leather
By dj on


2009 Mercedes-Benz E-Class E320 BlueTEC 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl Turbodiesel 7A)


Addressing the vinyl vs leather for such expensive vehicles, please note that Mercedes has a long history of offering the best vinyl seating ever made, which is better than most cars leather. For some reason Americans equate leather with luxury. In Europe many of the Mercedes sold have cloth/velour seating. A final note on the vinyl, you'll be very happy to have the vinyl 30 years from now when your E class interior looks almost as new. History and tradition are alive at Mercedes.

Exactly. MB-Tex as their vinyl is durable, supple and is easy to clean. Our next Benz will be a Bluetec E-class or (maybe) a C220 CDI Bluetec, IF Mercedes ever imports it and can keep the cost down to well under $40k. Love the E-class though...
