2013 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Summary

Few automobiles deliver as satisfying a mix of passenger space, luxury, style, and performance in a vault-solid, practical package as the 2013 Mercedes-Benz E-Class. From convertible to wagon, there's an E-Class variant for nearly every taste, an available high-mileage diesel engine or an ultra-performance, 516-hp V8, and optional 4MATIC all-wheel drive for drivers who can use it. Mercedes-Benz also claims the E-Class is the safest car of its type ever built. Based on all the standard safety equipment that's built in, that's likely true.
