The perfect blend of sport and luxury
Wis Ed, 5/22/2017
Driven in comfort mode, regardless of speed, this car is a paragon of luxury: amazing seats, comfortable ride, near total silence. Flick the dynamic switch to sport plus and you get a fire breathing, curve slicing rocket that is as fast and swift handling as any road car has a right to be, the near silence replaced by an excellent engine tune that is loud enough not to be annoying! The car simply seems to hover over the pavement regardless how abruptly or hard its driven. There is no squat, nose dive or lean. The engine is powerful and responsive at any speed, the transmission seems to divine the right gear for seamless, effortless thrust! Fuel economy is very good for the level of performance, I have been achieving exactly the EPA estimates. The interior is simply superb, excellent materials and fit and finish. After you drive a car with dynamic seat bolsters everything seems a little less special. Even the rear seats are a very nice place to be. The command system is a huge improvement over the previous version of the system and works amazingly with the dual screen dash which offers HD level graphics. The additional AMG modes for both the screens and the heads up display add another layer of wow factor. The standard Burmester audio is excellent and fully appreciated given the almost anechoic chamber level quietness that the quiet comfort package provides. Definitely a home run from Mercedes Benz-AMG. 15000 mile update: Still thrilled with the E43. This far it has been flawless. The perfect 4 season sport sedan. We celebrated spring at Road America! m.youtube.com/watch?v=LcsYy6Gy1WA
Great Driving E43
E43 Owner, 3/31/2017
Our family already has 2 BMW's, so I came into this purchase with a bias. We bought an E43 Premium 3 after looking at other sport sedans in this price range (BMW 540, Audi S/A 6/7, Maserati Ghibli, Lexus GS were main options we considered). Even though some were slightly faster and more sporty looking, overall we chose the interior/exterior styling and capability combination of the E43. We've had it for a month now, and so far so good... and so FUN! Even though we liked the e300 when it came out, I couldn't come to grips with the 4 cylinder - so the E43 offers a sporty-driving alternative to the e300 without the race capability (and 6-figure price) of the E63. The power is great, the options are awesome - and once you get used to using voice commands (we find them quickest vs. COMMAND system menus for some functions) it's easy to master. Love Sport+ mode for fun and the option to go full-manual shift. Challenges so far: As some other reviewers, we have not been immune to software issues. We've had strangely intermittent navigation and HD radio issues, with the dealer still waiting on the latest patch for one of the issues. Software issues alone keep me from rating 5 across the board. OVERALL: After one month and 1500 miles, we would definitely do it again!

More about the 2017 Mercedes-Benz E-Class

The 2017 Mercedes-Benz E-Class, the latest in a long line of perennial top contenders among midsize luxury cars, keeps up the tradition of handsomely styled, smooth-riding, comfortable models loaded with upscale touches. Sophisticated and composed on the road, the E-Class delivers confident handling and, depending on configuration and options, can provide surprisingly spirited cornering, making it a suitable choice for a wide range of buyers.

The big news for 2017 is the completely redesigned E300 sedan. Sleeker and sportier than its predecessor, the new 10th-generation four-door features a 2.6-inch-longer wheelbase, a more aggressive front end, an elongated hood and a bobbed tail. Previously on the conservative side, it's now among the most stylish sedans in its class. Buyers can choose between a luxury version with a traditional Mercedes grille and the three-pointed star mounted on the hood or a sport model with the star centered in the grille.

The interior of the new E-Class sedan makes use of the longer wheelbase and provides front seat passengers with a bit of extra legroom. And although the backseat was never cramped, the new design increases rear seat room over that of the prior model, as well as much of the competition. As befitting a model in its luxury class, the E-Class cabin furnishes supremely comfortable seats and surrounds occupants with high-quality materials and wood and metal trim. Options include such high-end touches as a heated steering wheel and armrests and state-of-the-art sound systems.

Technology remains a strong suit for the midsize Mercedes. The updated infotainment system can be controlled by touch-sensitive buttons on the steering wheel and includes a wide-screen, high-resolution display. Standard Mercedes COMAND navigation, featuring 3-D graphics and maps, is managed by a touchpad mounted in the center console. And along with the new design comes a host of standard and optional advanced safety and driver assistance tech, such as Steering Pilot, which keeps the vehicle centered in its lane, and Parking Pilot, which searches for available spaces and automatically steers the car into them.

The only powertrain available in the sedan is a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that produces 241 horsepower and 273 pound-feet of torque coupled to a nine-speed automatic transmission. The E400 coupe and convertible — unchanged for 2017 — are powered by a 329-horsepower twin-turbo V6, and the carryover E550 models come with a 402-horsepower twin-turbo V8. Both the V6 and V8 are mated to a seven-speed transmission, and all models except the convertibles can be ordered with all-wheel drive.

Fuel economy for the rear-wheel drive E-Class sedan with the four-cylinder engine is 25 mpg combined (22 city/30 highway). Opting for 4Matic all-wheel drive reduces fuel economy slightly to 24 mpg combined (22 city/29 highway).

Whether your choice is the well-equipped base E300 sedan or the more powerful E400 or E550 coupe or convertible, let Edmunds help you find the 2017 Mercedes-Benz E-Class model that best suits your needs.
