The Coolest Automotive Mercedes-Benz E-Class 2008


Introduced in 2003, the current and the coolest automotive Mercedes-Benz E-Class sports classy and aggressive styling, with a rising beltline that gives the car a stance like that of a crouching feline. Currently, the sedans come in four trim levels: the turbodiesel E320 Bluetec (208 horsepower), the gasoline V6-powered E350 (268 hp), the V8-powered E550 (382 hp) and the pavement-scorching E63 AMG, which boasts a 507-hp, 6.3-liter V8. Rear-wheel drive is standard, but the 4Matic all-wheel-drive system can be had on the E350 and E550 sedans. E-Class wagons are offered in E350 4Matic and E63 AMG trims. All models are equipped with an automatic transmission. Rear-drive E-Class cars have seven-speed automatics, while the 4Matics have five-speed units.

The coolest automotive Mercedes-Benz E-Class is a luxurious sedan that has a refined interior, multiple capable engine options, and confident handling. Long a favorite in the midsize luxury sport sedan segment, the Mercedes-Benz E-Class has provided comfort, performance and safety for decades. The trademark qualities of Mercedes-Benz vehicles, such as vaultlike solidity and leading-edge technology, have also contributed to the E-Class's great popularity among luxury sedan and wagon buyers.



The 2008 automotive Mercedes Benz E Class is a superior blend of sport and luxury in a four-door sedan. The E-Class sedans and wagons are solid, safe, comfortable, luxurious, and fast.

The overall design of the automotive Mercedes-Benz E-Class has always been understated yet elegant. The interiors of the early models were comfortable but hardly lavish. Only with the more recent models have the cabins grown luxurious, with generous helpings of leather, wood and chrome trim throughout.

Rear-wheel drive automotive Mercedes Benz E-Class sedans are available in four models, the E320 BLUETEC, E350, E550, and E63 AMG. The E350 and E63 AMG are available as wagons and the E350 and E550 are also available with 4MATIC all-wheel drive. Rear-wheel drive models include a seven-speed automatic transmission and 4MATIC models include a five-speed automatic. A 3.0-liter 210-hp turbo-diesel V6 engine drives the E320 BlueTEC and a 268-hp, 3.5-liter gasoline V6 engine powers the E350. The E550 has a 382-hp, 5.5-liter V8 engine under its hood while the E63 AMG has a 507-hp, 6.3-liter V8 with AMG speedshift. The wagons in the class seat up to seven, while the sedans seat five. Multi-zone climate control is standard and all models come with a lengthy list of standard features.

The elegant and capable automotive Mercedes-Benz E-Class Sedan resides at the center of the extensive Mercedes-Benz passenger-car line. It strikes a nice balance between luxury and performance, with a bit more brand cachet than the Asian imports can deliver. A wide model selection ranges from a fuel-frugal, diesel-powered E320 Bluetec Sedan to a tire-smoking, high-performance AMG variant. There are amply powered V6 and V8 E-Class versions offered. Ride and handling characteristics in most versions favor comfort over bone-jarring performance. The E550 Sedan and the E63 AMG Sedan include an Airmatic air suspension, with four different ride modes that maximize either a softer ride or a responsive feel. The E-Class Sedan comes with plenty of safety features, including Mercedes' Pre-Safe collision mitigation system. Many of the latest high-tech features are options.

Base List Price : $52,200 - $85,300

The automotive Mercedes-Benz E-Class is definitely showing its age. The strength of the brand and relatively high resale values allow Mercedes to charge more than most of its competitors, and to nickel-and-dime buyers on some basic options like the folding backseat, leather, bi-xenon headlights, parking sonar and heated seats. At this size and price, the E-Class has a lot of competition apart from the European models I concentrated on, including the Acura TL and RL and the Cadillac CTS and STS. A choice of engines, transmissions and drivelines are becoming the norm, so this old dog will need to learn some new tricks soon if it wants to keep up with the pack.

This is really cool. I might wanna buy a new car before this year ends. I still have to focus on some things in my small business. Payroll service provided by the company I teamed up with is doing good works with my financial records, though. I don't have to worry about my payroll tax. Services they offer are accurate, and fast. They can also accommodate a temporary influx of seasonal workers without acquiring new systems that will remain dormant the rest of the year. Anyway, I hope I can find a pre-owned E-class. Good luck to me!
