2010 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Overview
If you’re a long-time Mercedes-Benz owner or first-time buyer, saying that you will be impressed by the newly redesigned 2010 Mercedes-Benz E-Class would be a gross understatement.
The E-Class is an introductory level Benz that boasts a plethora of new safety features and luxury appointments as well as a interior/exterior redesign and a lower sticker price. There are four distinct E-Class models to choose from, with four distinct engines that range from diesel-efficient to rocket-like powerful. Choose between a sedan, coupe, wagon and high-performance E63 AMG (the wagon and AMG will be available later this year). Now, choose between the 268-horsepower, 3.5-liter V-6 E350, 382-horsepower, 5.5-liter V-8 E550, 507-horsepower, 6.3-liter, V-8 E63 AMG and 211-horsepower, turbo-diesel E350 BlueTec engine. Rear-wheel drive comes standard, while 4MATIC all-wheel drive is available on the E350 and E550 sedans. The 2010 Mercedes-Benz E-Class receives 15-18 mpg in the city and 22-26 mpg on the highway and competes with the Audi A6, BMW 5 Series and Infiniti M.
The 2010 E-Class turns heads with its redesigned interior and exterior. Dynamically sculpted headlights, windswept pillarless design, a three-piece lower air dam and wraparound LED taillights blend with the 17-inch alloy wheels and oval exhaust pipes to make the E-Class the most aerodynamic luxury sedan on the market. A panorama sunroof, double-stitched leather seating, 14-way power front seats, polished wood appointments and ambient lighting add to an already stunning interior.
A central controller knob allows you to access your audio, communication and navigation systems through the 40GB COMAND system on a seven-inch LCD display. The Harman/Kardon LOGIC7 audio system features an in-dash 6-disc DVD/CD changer, 610-watt 5.1 Dolby Digital surround-sound system with fourteen speakers and a subwoofer for crystal clear sound. A rear-seat entertainment system boasts two eight-inch flat-panel-LCD screens that can accommodate DVDs and video games.
The 2010 Mercedes-Benz E-Class is loaded with numerous cutting-edge safety features like Attention Assist, which monitors the drivers and gives audible and visual warnings if it detects signs of drowsiness. Adaptive Highbeam Assist adjusts the range of your high beams, based on the distance both to oncoming vehicles and to those ahead of you. Blind Spot Assist guards your blind spots and Night View Assist uses infrared sensors alerting you of unseen objects in your path. Nine airbags, traction control with an electronic stability system, antilock brakes, Mercedes’ Pre-Safe system, and automatic emergency braking are all part of one of the most comprehensive safety systems available.
Simply put, the 2010 Mercedes-Benz is so loaded with refinement, cutting-edge technology, original safety features and power that this review cannot give it justice. If you are looking for a new luxury sedan/coupe you should look no further than the 2010 Mercedes-Benz E-Class.
