Overview - 2015 Mercedes-Benz E Class Specials in San Antonio
The 2015 Mercedes-Benz E-Class has made an extraordinary effort to build an E-Class suitable for your tastes.
Really, whether you want your midsize luxury car to be a fuel-sipping diesel sedan, a turbo V6-powered convertible or a road-burning 577-horsepower wagon, there's bound to be an E-Class much to your liking.
That diesel E-Class earns an EPA estimated 33 mpg combined (that's compact economy car territory) while still being able to sprint to 60 mph in a fairly swift 7.6 seconds. But if outgunning sports cars up the on-ramps is more your thing, you may consider the E 63 AMG S model, which can rip to that same speed in under 4 seconds. And sitting in between those two extremes are no fewer than three additional engine choices.
Since its debut for 2010, this generation of the Mercedes-Benz E-Class have become multiple driver's favorites, thanks to its trifecta of refinement, performance and cutting-edge technology.

The E-Class comes standard with antilock disc brakes, stability control, a driver drowsiness monitor, front and front-side airbags, front pelvic airbags, side curtain airbags and a driver knee airbag. Also included is the mbrace telematics system, offering smartphone integration and Web-based apps that include remote controls, driver monitoring and emergency services. The convertible additionally features automatically deploying rollover hoops.
Rear airbags are a stand-alone option. Other options include front and rear-collision mitigation systems and the Driver Assistance package, which includes collision mitigation as well as adaptive cruise control and a "Steering Assist" feature that uses a stereoscopic camera to help keep you in your lane. All models are available with both a surround-view camera and an automated parking system.
An E250 with all-season tires comes to a stop from 60 mph in 122 feet. An E350, also on all-seasons, does 121 feet. When tested with summer performance tires, the E350 sedan stopped in just 110 feet, while an E350 4Matic wagon with summer tires stopped in 109 feet -- pretty impressive for a weighty family hauler. As one would expect, the E 63 sedan's 105-foot stop is the shortest of the bunch (107 feet for the E 63 wagon), and that was without the optional carbon-ceramic brakes.
In government crash testing, the 2015 E-Class earned an overall rating of four of five-possible stars, with five stars for side-impact and rollover potential. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) awarded the 2015 E-Class sedan its best-possible rating of "Good" in every category it has: small- and moderate-overlap front crash, side-impact and roof strength, plus its head restraints and seats. Further, the IIHS awarded the E-Class sedan a rare "Superior" grade for front-crash prevention when equipped with optional Pre-Safe and Driver Assistance packages. The E-Class coupe was similarly awarded with the best-possible rating of "Good" for moderate-overlap front crash, side-impact and roof strength, plus its head restraints and seats.

The cabin of the 2015 Mercedes-Benz E-Class is at once handsome and functional. A "three-tube" gauge cluster adds visual interest, and all but the AMG versions have a steering-column-mounted gear selector. A Mercedes-brand analog clock adds a touch of class, while three available wood veneers range from warm to austere -- a nice no-cost opportunity to personalize your Benz.
All versions come with the COMAND electronics interface, which combines a large display screen, a control knob and dash-mounted buttons. As with every knob-based infotainment system, there's a learning curve, but we generally prefer COMAND to rival systems due to its relatively simple menu structure. Its voice command functionality is also first-rate.
Each E-Class is relatively comfortable and spacious by segment standards. The seats are firm, but offer impressive comfort and support for the long haul -- especially the optional multicontour driver seat. The two-door and AMG models feature snug front sport seats that capably hold you in place during aggressive driving. The backseat in four-door models is pleasantly spacious, matching the BMW 5 Series for most hospitable in the midsize luxury class. Two-door E-Class models easily fit two adults back there without too much hassle.
The sedan's trunk measures a slightly above average 15.9 cubic feet, while the wagon offers up to 57.4 cubic feet of maximum cargo volume in addition to its trademark rear-facing (and strictly-for-kids) third-row seat that gives it seven-passenger capacity in a pinch. The coupe drops to a still-commendable 13.3 cubic feet of trunk space, while the convertible brings up the rear at 11.5 cubic feet (8.8 with the top down).
Notably, unlike most hybrid sedans, the E400 Hybrid sedan has the same trunk capacity as its non-hybrid counterpart, as its lithium-ion battery pack is housed in the engine bay rather than in a space-eating trunk location.
Driving - 2015 Mercedes-Benz E Class Specials in San Antonio
The 2015 Mercedes-Benz E-Class stakes out a sublime middle ground between comfort and sport. There are both cushier cars and more athletic cars in the midsize luxury segment, but none marries these traits as harmoniously as the Benz. Regardless of body style or engine, the E-Class also provides that unique sense of solidity that has long set Mercedes vehicles apart. It's a special car to drive.
If there's a downside here, it involves the growing collection of electronic driver aids, which certainly mean well but have the potential to interfere with driving enjoyment. Fortunately, some can be turned off if you find them overly intrusive.
You'll be hard-pressed to distinguish the E250 Bluetec from its six-cylinder E350 Bluetec predecessor, as the diesel four-cylinder engine pulls with vigor from very low rpm. While idling at a standstill you might notice some vibration through the pedals, but the auto stop-start system essentially makes that a non-issue. That system is very smooth, with nary a shudder to be felt when it automatically restarts the engine. For environmentally minded E-Class buyers, the E250 is a good way to go.
As for the E 63 AMG, it's simply an amazing thrill ride wrapped up in a practical package. With acceleration essentially on par with that of exotic sports cars, this roomy sedan (or wagon) has to be driven to be believed. Running up an on-ramp with your foot in it takes on the feel of a jet leaving an airstrip, while the AMG's adept handling on a curvy road will make you think you're driving something two-thirds its size and weight.
