The 2018 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 2018 is the completely redesigned coupe and convertible. They follow in the footsteps of the sedan and wagon that were redesigned last year. Previously on the conservative side, the E-Class is now among the most stylish vehicles 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. Also added back into the lineup this year is the massively powerful AMG E63 S (sedan and wagon only), which is powered by a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V8 engine that's sure to wake the neighbors.
The interior of the new E-Class makes use of this generation's longer wheelbase and provides front passengers with a bit of extra legroom. And although the back seat was never cramped, the new design increases rear-seat room compared to 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 3D 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 a spot.
Multiple desirable powertrains are available across the lineup, including a base 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that produces 241 horsepower and 273 pound-feet of torque. The E400 coupe and convertible are powered by a 329-hp twin-turbo V6, while the AMG E43 gets a more powerful version of the twin-turbo V6 (396 hp) and the AMG E63 S gets a twin-turbo V8 that puts out 603 hp and 627 lb-ft of torque. All three engines (with four distinct power outputs) are mated to a nine-speed automatic transmission.
Whether your choice is the well-equipped base E300 sedan or the more powerful E400 or AMG models, let Edmunds help you find the 2018 Mercedes-Benz E-Class model that best suits your needs.

Vehicle E 300 Sport 4dr Sedan (2.0L 4cyl Turbo 9A)
Review Love the car and the features. It is technology heavy and most of the features are not intuitive. I read owner's manuals when I get a new car, but even that isn't easy. Fortunately I can bring the car back after having it awhile with questions on how things work. Would really like a feature that automatically locks the doors when you close them (my Corvette has that and I love it), but no luck.
