  • What's New for 2017

     

    The 2017 Mercedes-Benz E-Class sedan has undergone a full redesign from top to bottom. The rest of the lineup carries over unchanged.

     

REVIEW

There's something old, something new, something borrowed and nothing blue when it comes to this year's Mercedes-Benz E-Class. The big news is the all-new E-Class sedan, which is limited to the four-cylinder E300 at the moment. The full redesign borrows heavily from the opulent S-Class flagship with stunning results. The coupe and convertible models continue in last-generation form as they await the same treatment, and the AMG and BlueTec diesel models take a break during the transition.

The E-Class revitalization takes place just as the lineup was beginning to show its age, as evidenced by the carryover two-door models. In addition to the graceful interior design and impeccable materials, the new E300 sedan also benefits from all the latest advanced safety features that keep Mercedes on the cutting edge.

The redesign of the E-Class raises the bar for the midsize luxury sedan segment. The Audi A6 and BMW 5 Seriesrepresent the most direct competition and were last redesigned five and six years ago, respectively. We anticipate the next generation of these rivals in coming years, but until then, the 2017 Mercedes-Benz E-Class will enjoy its position at the top.

BODY STYLES, TRIM LEVELS, AND OPTIONS

The 2017 Mercedes-Benz E-Class lineup consists of a redesigned five-passenger midsize luxury sedan and a four-passenger coupe and convertible that carries over from the previous generation. All indications point to a redesigned coupe and convertible for the following year.

All E300 sedans feature include 18-inch wheels, LED headlights, automatic wipers, heated power-folding mirrors, a sunroof, selectable drive modes, an adaptive suspension, keyless ignition and cruise control.

Inside, you also get dual-zone automatic climate control, MB-Tex synthetic leather upholstery, power-adjustable front seats with driver memory functions, 40/20/40-split folding rear seats, a tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, auto-dimming rearview and driver-side mirrors, wood interior trim, ambient interior lighting, a universal garage door opener, a 12.3-inch display, Mercedes' COMAND infotainment system with a touchpad controller and voice control, a navigation system with real-time traffic, a Wi-Fi hot spot, Bluetooth phone and streaming audio, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, HD radio and two USB ports.

The optional Premium 1 package adds a rearview camera, an automated parallel and perpendicular parking system, a wireless phone charger, satellite radio, keyless entry, a power trunklid with hands-free activation, a blind-spot monitor with rear cross-traffic alert, heated front seats and a 14-speaker Burmester surround sound system. Premium 2 package includes all of the Premium 1 package, along with adaptive headlights with automatic high-beams, active multicontour front seats with massage functions, a perfumed air freshener system and a power rear sunshade. The Premium 3 package includes all of the above plus a surround-view camera system, adaptive cruise control with steering and lane-change assist, a speed limit sign reader, front-collision and cross-traffic warnings and mitigation, evasive steering assist, active blind-spot assistance, a head-up display, and Pre-Safe side and rear impact preparation.

Other additions include the Sport Wheel package (18-inch wheels, upgraded brakes and a black headliner), the Warmth and Comfort package (rapid heating for front seats, heated front armrests, upper door panels and steering wheel), the Rear Safety package (airbags in the rear seat belts), an adaptive air-ride suspension, a panoramic sunroof, a wood-trimmed steering wheel, ventilated front seats, a virtual instrument panel, additional sound and solar insulation, and a household power outlet. Numerous upholstery and trim options are also available.

The four-passenger E400 and E550 coupes are largely unchanged from the previous year and come with most of the sedan's features, albeit without the latest style and technology. Standard feature highlights include 18-inch wheels, a panoramic sunroof, adaptive suspension and leather upholstery. The COMAND touchpad controller is not available, and items such as navigation and smartphone integration are optional. The convertible models receive a power-folding fabric top, Mercedes' Aircap wind deflector and a rear center pass-through. The Airscarf neckwarmer is available as an option.

POWERTRAINS AND PERFORMANCE

The only available engine for the 2017 Mercedes-Benz E300 sedan is a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder that produces 241 horsepower and 273 pound-feet of torque. A nine-speed automatic transmission sends power to the rear wheels on standard models, while 4Matic models feature all-wheel drive.

In Edmunds testing, the E300 sedan accelerated to 60 mph in 7.0 seconds, which is slightly slower than average among competing midsize luxury sedans. The EPA estimates fuel economy at 25 mpg combined (22 city/30 highway) for the rear-drive model and 24 mpg combined (22 city/29 highway) for the 4Matic. These figures also trail the competition by a few mpg.

The E400 coupe and convertible are powered by a twin-turbo 3.0-liter V6 engine producing 329 hp and 354 lb-ft of torque. A seven-speed automatic transmission sends power to the rear wheels, and 4Matic is available as an option for the coupe only. Mercedes estimates a zero-to-60 mph time of 6.3 seconds for the coupe, convertible and 4Matic models. In Edmunds testing, however, an E400 convertible hit 60 mph in only 5.3 seconds. The EPA estimates fuel economy at 23 mpg combined for all E400 models.

The E550 coupe and convertible get a 4.7-liter twin-turbo V8 that makes 402 hp and 443 lb-ft of torque. Mercedes estimates it will reach 60 mph in 4.9 seconds. The EPA estimates rate the coupe at 21 mpg combined (18 city/26 highway) and the convertible at 20 mpg combined (17 city/25 highway). Both models are rear-wheel-drive only.

SAFETY

Standard safety features for all 2017 Mercedes E-Class models include antilock brakes, stability and traction control, a driver drowsiness monitor, front-seat side airbags, front pelvic airbags, side curtain airbags, a driver knee airbag, and the Pre-Safe system that cinches down seat belts, adjusts the front passenger seat and closes windows when a collision is imminent. Also included is Mbrace telematics system, offering smartphone integration and web-based apps that include remote controls, driver monitoring and emergency services. The convertible additionally features automatically deploying rollover hoops.

The redesigned E300 sedan also receives a new communication system that networks with other Mercedes vehicles to alert nearby drivers of possible hazards. A Pre-Safe Sound system is also included and reduces hearing damage by emitting a specific noise before a collision that triggers a muscle reflex in the inner ear to reduce hearing damage. An optional Pre-Safe Impulse Side system detects impending side impacts and inflates a chamber in the front outboard seat bolsters to move the occupant farther from the door.

Safety options include a rearview or surround-view camera, rear-seat side airbags, forward collision warning and mitigation, lane departure warning, lane-keeping assist, active or passive blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert and automated parking systems. The Pre-Safe Plus option protects passengers in a similar fashion as the standard Pre-Safe system but is activated by impeding rear collisions. It also applies the brakes to prevent secondary collisions.

In Edmunds brake testing, an E400 Cabriolet with summer tires came to a stop from 60 mph in a very short 106 feet. In crash tests conducted by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, the 2016 E-Class coupe earned the highest score of Good in the moderate-overlap front-impact and the side-impact tests. It also rated Good for roof strength and head restraints (whiplash protection).

INTERIOR DESIGN AND SPECIAL FEATURES

The redesigned 2017 Mercedes-Benz E-Class sedan adopts a similar interior design as the flagship S-Class with a bold horizontal layout stretching from door to door. The central infotainment screen extends from the instrument panel, which can optioned with virtual instead of analog gauges. As in the S-Class, the E300 sedan's interior utilizes excellent materials throughout and exhibits impeccable craftsmanship.

Passenger space is similar to most other competitors in the class when it comes to headroom, shoulder room and legroom. Seat comfort is outstanding, especially with the optional multicontour seats.

By comparison, the E-Class coupes and convertibles continue with the previous-generation interiors. The blocky shapes and abundance of buttons definitely date the appearance, but all controls and systems work flawlessly. The E400 Cabrio earns high marks for its innovative wind blockers that nearly eliminate top-down buffeting and its bigger-than-average trunk. It misses getting an A in this category because of its small backseat, big doors and some interior plastics that don't meet luxury standards.

Mercedes' COMAND infotainment system is standard on all E-Class models, but only the redesigned sedan receives the latest interface that includes a touchpad hovering above the central dial. The touchpad allows users to use smartphone-like gestures (swipes and pinch to zoom) to control the system, as well as alphanumeric input by tracing with your fingertip. It's not as easy to use while on the go, but the dial is just as intuitive as it was before.

Cargo capacity for the sedan tops out at 13.1 cubic feet, which is small for the class. The coupe actually provides 13.3 cubic feet, and the convertible can hold up to 11.5 cubic feet (8.8 with the top down).

DRIVING IMPRESSIONS

Although it might seem odd that the new E-Class sedan offers only a four-cylinder engine, you're unlikely to find it bothersome from behind the wheel. The new engine delivers surprisingly strong performance while remaining quiet and smooth at nearly any speed. A sophisticated suspension, powerful brakes, and precise but lightweight steering further contribute to the E300's ultra-refined feel.

If you stick with one of the two-door E-Class models, you'll definitely enjoy the deep reserve of power offered by the standard turbocharged V6. It has all the power you need unless you crave serious tire-spinning grunt. For that, the V8-powered E550 model is what you want. It not only pushes the E-Class into high-performance territory, it sounds great doing it. Neither the new sedan nor the older coupes are particularly agile, but if you're more interested in long-range comfort coupled with confident handling, any E-Class model will satisfy.
