2021 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Prices, Reviews, and Pictures

Overview

With its cutting-edge technology, elegant appearance and luxurious cabin, the 2021 Mercedes-Benz E-class is a symbol of sophistication. This car is compelling enough to be on our Editors Choice list. The Mercedes is available in a four-door sedan, coupe or cabriolet as well as a two-door coupe or cabriolet. It can be tailored to suit any lifestyle. There are a variety of powertrain options available, including a four-cylinder entry level model and a turbocharged six-cylinder with 362 horsepower. With a quiet interior and a comfortable ride, the 2021 E-class family transports passengers in quiet comfort. It’s a smaller version of the luxurious S-class, but it offers the same experience.

What’s new for 2021?

Mercedes-Benz announces a mid-cycle upgrade to the E-class lineup in 2021. These changes are applicable to both the coupe and cabriolet models as well as the sedan. Redesigned front and rear styling are included, as well as a new steering-wheel design, MBUX infotainment systems, and improved driver-assistance technology. The E450 replaces the twin-turbo V-6 engine with a turbocharged six-cylinder engine.

Pricing and Which One To Buy

The sedan body style is recommended, but we recommend the E450 with its powerful six-cylinder engine and standard 4Matic all wheel-drive system. The standard features include blind-spot monitoring, digital dashboard, heated front seats with memory settings and an infotainment program with Apple CarPlay or Android Auto. Passive entry is also available. We can add an optional air suspension, heated steering wheel, head-up display and heated steering wheel to this.

Transmission, Engine, and Performance

Each E-class has a nine-speed automatic transmission, which pairs with three engines. The E350 features a turbocharged four cylinder with 255 horsepower and 273 pounds-feet torque. You can choose between rear-wheel or all-wheel drive. The E450 features a turbocharged six-cylinder engine and a 48-volt hybrid system, which doubles as an electric motor. This setup delivers 362 horsepower and 369 pounds-feet to each of the four wheels. The E-class is comfortable-biased and its handling is not sporty. Although it can lean in corners, it doesn’t feel overwhelmed when pushing hard. The Comfort setting of the optional air suspension makes the ride smooth and the E-class is great for navigating many roads. The E-class glides smoothly over uneven pavement with very little notification to the cabin. The drive mode selector can be set to Eco or Comfort. The steering feels precise and is well weighted. It’s not too light, but it’s not too heavy. The E-class is a straight car that can be driven on the freeway. It has a predictable and solid nature and the road feedback is muted.

Fuel Economy and Real World MPG

The E350 four-cylinder engine achieved 22 mpg in the city and 31 highway with rear-wheel driven, and 22 mpg in the city and 30 highway with all-wheel driving. The E450 model, which is more powerful, has a rating of 23 mpg in the city and 30 on the highway. We will be able to evaluate the real-world mpg once we have had the opportunity to test each powertrain on our 75-mph highway fuel efficiency test route.

Interior, Comfort, & Cargo

The E-class’s cabin features beautiful details, including brushed aluminum and lovely wood. It also has some of our most comfortable seats. Each model includes adjustable ambient lighting, heated front seats and a 12.3 inch digital gauge cluster. There are also memory settings for both the driver and passenger seats. You can choose from a head-up display or ventilated front seat cushions. The trunk is more compact than other models, but it offers much more storage space. Although the rear seatbacks can be lowered to make cargo easier, they aren’t flat enough to load heavy items. With the rear seats folded, we were able to fit 18 carry-on bags into the sedan. The coupe and convertible models have a trunk that measures 10 feet in length. However, the trunk space of the cabriolet model is much smaller with the top down. With the top down, we could fit only two suitcases in the trunk. The coupe was able to hold five.

Connectivity and Infotainment

The E-class is standard with a 12.3 inch touchscreen infotainment system. This can be controlled in many ways, including a touchpad on center console and voice-activated commands. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are standard features of the MBUX system. For those who desire more features, you can upgrade to a Burmester stereo or wireless charging.
