    Model overview

    The Mercedes-Benz E-Class is a series of executive vehicles produced by German carmaker Mercedes-Benz in multiple engines and body forms. Built as 1953, the E-Class comes midrange in the Mercedes line-up and has been sold globally across five generations.

    Before 1993, the E in Mercedes-Benz classification was a suffix following a car's model number which held for Einspritzmotor (the German word for fuel injection engine). It started to rise in the early 1960s, when that trait started to be utilized broadly in the maker's product range, and not just in its upper tier luxury and sporting variants. With the debut of the facelifted W124 in 1993 the E was adopted as a prefix (i.e., E 220) and the model list related to formally as the E-Class (or E-Klasse). 

    Historically, the E-Class is Mercedes-Benz's best-selling model, with over 13 million units sold as 2015. The primary E-Class series was available as a four-door sedan, five-door station wagon, 2 doors coupe, and convertible. From 1997 to 2009, a similar coupe and convertible were marketed under the Mercedes-Benz CLK-Class nameplate. With the newest embodiment of the E-Class published for the 2017 model year, all body forms share the same platform.

    Because of the E-Class's size and strength, it has fulfilled many market sections, from personal vehicles to taxis in European countries, as well as special-purpose vehicles (i.e., police or ambulance changes) from the factory.

    The new Mercedes-Benz E-Class comes in four body styles: a five-passenger sedan, a seven-passenger wagon, and a four-passenger coupe and convertible. The sedan, coupe, and convertible all come equipped with rear-wheel drive, with all-wheel drive either optional or standard, depending on the powertrain and body form. The four basic trim levels are bound to different engines: E 350 (sedan only), E 450 (sedan, wagon, coupe, convertible), AMG E 53 (sedan, coupe, convertible), and AMG E 63 S (sedan and wagon).

    The E 350 sedan is powered by a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine (255 horsepower, 273 lb-ft of torque) and paired to a nine-speed automatic transmission. The E 450 has all of the E 350's facilities plus a turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 engine delivering 362 horsepower and 369 lb-ft of torque. For more strength and some upgraded facilities, there's the AMG E 53, which comes equipped with a turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-six engine delivering 429 horsepower and 384 lb-ft of torque. The top model, the AMG E 63 S its equipped with a turbocharged 4.0-liter V8 (603 hp, 627 lb-ft).
