Mercedes E-Class 2013
|   Thursday, June 27, 2013
The latest 2013 model of the E Class Mercedes has gone through the most extended level of makeover by the company on any of its previous lines or models. And the new look is immediately evident, with bosomy single-piece headlamps, which replace the twin-piece angled units on the previous car.

The bonnet and the bumper have also been renewed and the 3-pointed star of Mercedes is now part of the front grille. Gone are those days when you see the gun-sight insignia which used to be mounted on the bonnet.
The amendments under the hood are made by introducing new engines which are more streamlined then the previous ones. There is also a more simple trim structure, the AMG Sport and the SE. However, an array of options is there to avail on both versions.

Now the question is: how is this E Class like to drive? The car is available in both petrol and the diesel versions. The petrol version is E250 and gives a performance of 208 horsepower, the diesel versions are 220 CDI with 168 horsepower output, the E250 CDI with 201 horsepower output and the E350 Bluetec with 248 horsepower output. Out of these, the E250 CDI is strongest competitor largely due to its top performance and low carbon dioxide emissions of 131 g/km. Its engine drags with power and ease and no thrust is experienced while doing so, as experienced in some diesel powered cars.

However, as far as the refinement is concerned it is a total disappointment. A vibrant requiem of the diesel is transferred throughout the cabin even with light speed acceleration and with high acceleration the gearbox turns into a joystick that has to be controlled via hand but with a body boost. But with that being said, the Bluetec version is the best in this range for refinement. But it will cost you extra as well because it is available in the AMG Sport trim structure only. But the extra charge definitely worth it as V6 diesel engine silent and comfortable for a joyful drive. The petrol versioned E250 speeds up swiftly and the gearbox works pretty well too. But this version too falls short when we talk about refinement. The brattle of the diesel engine is here as well but nonetheless it settles down at a steady speed.

As for the interiors, there are some improvements. An artificial leather covering is added at the top of the dashboard, this provides the cabin a high-end look which was pretty ordinary otherwise. The front seats are completely electric for adjustment now which provides the driver an ideal driving posture. However, the dimensions of the cabin haven't been changed so the number of the tall adults that can get into this ride at a time is 4 but the split folding seats in the rear is an extra option for some extra cash. In the AMG Sport version is equipped with satellite navigation system, DAB radio with 10GB hard drive and voice control as standard. The safety systems of the car are also improved.

However, the E Class is still not the best executive car to drive specifically due to its refinement. There are better and least expensive options available in the market.
