    • Definately the E-Class. My Dad had a 5-Series, which was amazing, but I feel like the Mercedes’ interior is just much nicer looking and it is a much posher looking car in general.

  • I have a hard time telling between the c-class and e-class. It's a shame really. The older e-class had presence, commanded respect from a mile a way.

  • Looks like the designers were drunk or just don't care. Ugly car that's a kick in the nuts for Mercedes. Wheres that Signature Chrome Grille that Bespoke of Class, Style and Elegance. This car looks like it was scrapped together in or at a Salvage Yard. Truly sad.

  • I just sold my E series and I think they did a great upgrade to the interior with the new version I’m not so keen on the exterior but overall it was a great car and the best part trouble free with a little over 100,000 miles. I did upgrade to a GLE 350 diesel which I thoroughly enjoyed it very comfortable

  • I was wondering why the E has gotten worse. But then he summed it up nicely at the beginning of the video! The car is mostly used as TAXI! I bet Mercedes is aware of that as well. It went from luxury saloon to TAXI. I guess the youth they tried to attract has gone slightly the wrong direction!

  • Exterior looks horrible, current generation looks significantly better hopefully this exterior design system for MB has a VERY short run. Interior is rather good still not sold on the tablet style dash, the full digital upgrade to cockpit display and improved infotainment display sufficed sich as on 2019 and 2020 models. Just out of curiosity does anyone like the new design system?

  • I do hope Mercedes read these comments. The steering wheel is a bit silly and honestly, really honestly...... the exterior is as bland as a jelly mould. It may be a nice place to be, but there is zero presence. I’ve had many e class over the years but I think I’m going to look what else is available. It doesn’t need just nicer wheels but a total rethink on the nose and rear lights. Some detailing on the sides too. It’s just not what I look at and think that’s damn cool...... it’s boring
