2012 Mercedes e350: Revisiting Classics
The Mercedes-Benz E-Class from 2012 continues its reputation for mid-size luxury of the “all-for-all” vehicle. With the recent addition of the E-Class Wagon , the 2-door E-Class Coupe, and the 2-door E-Class Cabriolet convertible, it is possible for consumers to obtain an E-Class from Mercedes-Benz in a surprising number of flavors.
Drivers can expect nothing less than the best Mercedes-Benz experience with a high-quality ride, luxury and comfort excellence in a segment that is among the most competitive in the automotive industry today.
2012 Mercedes E350 Exterior
Visually, 2the 010 Mercedes-Benz E-Class renewal is a “love or hate” affair, causing an argument on both sides. Combining elements of sedans and coupes from the 1950s with the muscular rear fenders, and its new front-end design, the latest generation of the Mercedes-Benz E-Class is not only distinctive as it’s also recognizable.
The lack of the B-pillar on the 2-door Coupe gives a soft aesthetics and an air of class. Both the Cabriolet and the Coupe share the changed grille and has a stylish and elegant top that blends perfectly with the sharp body-lines. The soft-top look is already a classic and weighs much less than a hard top. In what concerns to the wagon, it is definitely an anonymous hero. New for 2012 were the standard LED daytime running lights, a touch of design launched by Audi and that is now almost mandatory.
2012 Mercedes E350 Interior
All Mercedes-Benz E-Class from 2012 come with a rich standard equipment, providing enough comfort and convenience.
From adjustable seems in 14 different positions with memory settings to a high-end audio system and “mbrace” navigation system, the E-Class does not leave much room for options (though there are a few). New support systems available such as Lane Keeping Assist (passive and active forms) and Blind Spot Assist, take a turn for 2012. Another thing new in the 2012 model are the instrument cluster display and the steering wheel. Despite the front seats have plenty of room for both head and legs, the rear seats are a bit cramped, especially in the Coupe and the Cabriolet. On the sedan and wagon, they are absolutely perfect. The luggage space is impressive across the line, even in the Cabriolet, which has a large usable trunk space.
The E-Class Mercedes-Benz continues to have four engines, three of which are new for 2012: the turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 BlueTEC diesel engine with 210 horsepower; the 3.5-liter V6 engine with 302 horsepower in variants of the E350; the 4.6-liter V8 engine with 402 horsepower for the E550; and the 518 horsepower monster, a 5.5-liter V8 in the E63 AMG sedan and wagon.
All engines in class E are powered by a newly revised 7-speed automatic transmission with optional manual shift paddles.
