What is the best E-Class model?
The 2021 Mercedes-Benz E-Class has four models to choose from. In addition, some models offer a coupe or convertible version for those who wish to think outside the sedan box. Starting prices range from $52,450 – $73,900. Due to the fact that the range caters to varying budgets and priorities, the choice isn’t exactly simple.
There’s the entry-level E 350 and its step-up E 450 model. After that, there are two AMG model options as well. The AMG E 53 model offers a standard all-wheel-drive system with a sport-tuned suspension.
If a V8 engine is your flavor and you have money to spend, you’ll want to spring for the 2021 Mercedes-Benz AMG E 63. This is the E-Class range-topper and it’s equipped with virtually anything you could ask for in a luxury speed-demon sedan. But which one is best?
The folks at Edmunds suggest going with the E 450 4Matic. With this choice, you’ll get a cushy cabin a good performance. The E-Class is the Top Rated New Luxury Sedan, so it’s sure to please in all trim levels. However, for not much more than the E 350 4Matic it gets standard all-wheel drive and the new 6-cylinder that works together with a mild hybrid system that gives drivers “smooth power and improved fuel economy.”
