What the Critics Say
Whether you value comfort, performance or technology in your midsize luxury sedan, coupe, convertible or wagon, the 2018 Mercedes-Benz E-Class should be right at the top of your list.” – Edmunds
The E-Class could easily have backed off on dramatic styling change. It hasn’t. It’s embraced the long-nose, short-deck sweep that’s recast the C-Class and S-Class as the most stylish cars in their respective classes.” – The Car Connection
Mercedes-Benz E-Class Sedan Features
Performance & Driver Assistance
You have numerous powertrain options to choose from with the Mercedes-Benz E-Class Sedan. Included as standard is a 2.0L inline-4 turbo engine which produces 241 horsepower and 273 lb-ft of torque.

Available 4MATIC® all-wheel drive gives the E-Class stability and confidence in all weather conditions. The standard ECO Start/Stop system helps maximize your fuel efficiency in stop-and-go traffic. DYNAMIC SELECT gives drivers the ability to fine-tune the driving character of the E-Class.
While offering an elegantly athletic exterior design, the interior of the Mercedes-Benz E-Class Sedan is thoughtfully crafted to awaken your senses. An optional Air Balance cabin-air ionizer and aromatherapy system helps you relax with continuous fresh air inside the cabin. A panoramic 12.3-inch screen centralizes navigation, entertainment and countless comfort features using sharper graphics and more intuitive menus. COMAND® navigation helps get you to your destination effortlessly with 3D maps, live traffic, searching via Yelp or HERE™, along with lane advice before turns. Expertly-sculpted seats are tailored to match the muscles in your body for superior comfort. Sweeping from door-to-door, exotic yet sustainable woods add a luxurious accent to the interior while 64-color LED ambience helps set the mood.
Safety has been a hallmark for the E-Class Seadn for decades and the 2018 model is no exception to this tradition. As the first production car with Car‑to‑X Communication, the E-Class is connected to a centralized information source which can send you in-car updates about driving conditions and potential hazards before you get to them. An industry first, PRESAFE® Sound can sense an impending collision, and emit a safe “pink noise” via the audio system to pre-trigger your ears’ natural defense against the loud noises of an accident. In the event of a side collision, PRESAFE® Impulse Side can rapidly inflate the front-seat bolster to move you further from an intrusion and help reduce the forces of impact. DRIVE PILOT takes intelligent cruise control in a new level with the ability to change lanes with just a touch of the turn-signal lever.
