Edmunds.com says, “Restyled, higher in quality and more enjoyable to drive, the redesigned 2010 Mercedes-Benz E-Class is a luxury-car triumph. Shoppers in this segment will want to give it serious consideration.”
Tony O’Kane of The Motor Report says, “Ride quality is excellent around suburban streets, more so with the Elegance model’s softer suspension tune. The ride is supple and smooth, and it soaks up low-quality pavement in a thoroughly unruffled manner.”
