Mercedes-Benz E350/E550 Sedan Overview

The overall design of the Mercedes-Benz E-Class has always been understated yet elegant. The interiors of the early models were comfortable but hardly lavish. However, the more recent models have grown quite luxurious, with generous helpings of leather, wood and chrome trim throughout, as well as the latest high-tech features. The E-Class stands tall among luxury sedans as a tasteful and strong-performing entrant. All E-Class trims come with all the expected mercedes e-class accessories, such as a sunroof, dual-zone climate control, leather seating, power front seats and a powerful audio system. Moving up through the trim levels adds features such as adaptive air suspension and four-zone climate control. Of course the AMG versions have unique exterior styling and interior trim, sport seats, upgraded brakes and a sport-tuned Airmatic suspension.
