Mercedes E-Class Saloon (2016-2020): what would you like to read next?

Overall verdict

The Mercedes E-Class is comfortable to drive with the right options and has a fantastic interior. If you put thrills first, though, you might want to drive a BMW 5 Series first.

Make sure you buy a car with air suspension for the best comfort. It costs extra, but is well worth it.
