New 2021 E-Class with MBUX is a Great Car

I drove the competitors BMW 5, Audi 6, Lexus ES 350 and this new E Class is really something special. I had the other cars via a Subscription Model including the 2020 Mercedes so I have recent experience for weeks at a time driving the cars. The MBUX is a great user experience. Buy the Premium package because of the 360 camera and the upgraded audio system. The other add-on stuff is fun but not really needed. You will use Android Auto and not the Mercedes Navi if you want accurate directions. The Mercedes Navi is very pretty but useless for directions. The Augmented Reality is fun, once, and may impress your friends but is more of a distraction than a help. The Driver Assistance package is interesting but the distronic cruise control is the only thing you will actually use from this package. This is a truly comfortable car with the latest electronics. Note if you never have had a Mercedes you will need a good independent mechanic to do your A/B Services (Oil Changes) if you want to avoid the the dealer. You must log all service in the electronic service log which all of the good independent shops will do. Note the Lexus is the best value if not boring, with regular gas and standard oil changes, but I think with the 2021 updates the Mercedes E 350 is more fun than the Audi 6 (watch for recalls) or BMW 5 (needs updating to stay competitive). Obviously you should compare similar versions of each model.

Got the 2 door coupe. Beautiful car inside and out that is really fun to drive. Great tech that isn't difficult to use. Good gas mileage with the eco-boost. Plenty of pep with the turbo-charged inline 6

Not the E63 beast, but she will do!

Phenomenal tech, smooth as glass engine and decent fuel economy make the E53 a must have. Definitely worth the few $$'s over the E450. Get the upgraded steering wheel to allow fast changes in and out of sport or sport+ mode. Love the touchscreen and smooth trans. It is a bit tight on the interior though.

The new redesign made the new E class the best looking midsoze luzuary car. I used to own a c63s Amg and I was surprised how peppy the new 450 engine was.

I’m so glad that I used the Edmunds new car pricing tool. Because of the tool I was able to get 9.6% off the retail price. Which was a few hundred dollars less than the suggested price. Of course , I had to do some serious negotiating because of the included options but it was worth it.
