New Mercedes E-Class Saloon

Because purchase and running are important to the majority of new car buyers, my drive of the new E-Class Saloon was in the costly model, the £27,570 BlueEFFICIENCY CDI Saloon SE.

Even in premium large saloon and price and CO2 based Benefit-in-Kind tax is as important for company car and business customers

The E200 BlueEFFICIENCY CDI SE uses one of the three new four turbodiesel engines in the new range. For a car of status, size, quality and the price is ultra competitive.

Standard SE specification includes light-alloy wheels in a five-spoke aluminium trim, Artico leather upholstery, heated seats and a four-spoke multifunction wheel lined in with leather with chrome

Also included in the standard is the stereo radio system a twin receiver, CD-player, speakers and a Bluetooth interface for a phone. The clearly laid-out information screen in the centre of the can be operated by the driver or front using the controller on the centre

Advanced Parking Guidance is standard as are a host of other These include adaptive which constantly changes the settings depending on driving to a host of safety measures as driver drowsiness detection, accident protection, nine and an active bonnet system springs raise the bonnet the rear in a front end impact to soften the blow.

The only during my week long was the ‘take-a-break’ warning diagram was displayed even on start-up cold so I know it wasn’t me and appeared no way to reset it after the comprehensive handbook.

As for exterior styling: but with the famous three-pointed mounted on the bonnet means it can be a Mercedes. The side sculptured lines accentuate the car’s with deeply sculptured and wide rear wheel

At the front the classic Mercedes with swept back and twin headlights have and now we have an upright grille by twin rectangular lights.

I prefer the previous style looked classier and elegant. But we are that upright grilles are for pedestrians who will not be scooped up the bonnet!

BlueEFFICIENCY — and performance

But the most relevant in this CO2 obsessed motoring are the lower running costs improved fuel economy and emissions which minimise tax and company car tax. BlueEFFICIENCY whether petrol or diesel, up most of the new E-Class line-up.

These in massive improvements in fuel and CO2 emissions. The 2.1-litre, four CDI 136bhp might not look special on paper and the ‘runt’ of the powerhouse family. But this new pressure turbocharged diesel is so responsive thanks to its 360Nm of from just 1,600rpm and its and refined as well.

Around town, in stop and traffic or on the open road it is all the most E-Class private and cars drivers need if are wanting to reduce their tax and with the new ‘first year’ road tax charges for the higher CO2 cars becoming law in April.

My car returned 52.2mpg on average, for a luxury saloon of this The official combined cycle is 54.3mpg so fact and fiction are close. What is more CO2 emissions of 137g/km, with the manual gearbox, the new first road tax bill will be £110 and it stays at that for subsequent years as well.

If this E-Class is for company use the Benefit-in-Kind tax is a low 18%. There are no in performance terms. Top speed is and 0-62mph takes 9.7 seconds.


In this new E-Class Saloon is and tax efficient, it looks good, well, is a relaxed cruiser, it a comfortable and compliant ride, the SE is comprehensive so there is really much not to like about the
