This 2017 Mercedes-Benz E 300 is Well Made, Attractive, and High Tech - But Just Not Very Exciting
The E Class has been the Mercedes-Benz bread and butter car for many years - 10 generations, in fact, if only five as an actual E Class designation. This midsized executive car has historically been the perfect mix of size, power, utility, and luxury. Some have been hot rods, some have been coupes, and some wagons. The E Class is an absolute institution.
So is this W113 a good car, and moreso, a good E Class? Undeniably, it is a good car, and the quality of finish and interior appointments is exceptional. I'm a little uninspired by the turbo four cylinder, and find nine forward gears to be confusing. But it drives well, feels very solid, and the utility is undeniable. So, yes, it is probably a good E Class. I just wish it did a little more for me, and asked more of the driver in terms of involvement.
