2007 Mercedes Benz E Class review and picture

It’s hard not to like the 2007 Mercedes Benz E Class, a dynamic car which, despite a heavy price tag, is unsurpassed among its rivals. It’s both fun, save, and powerful, which brings it to the top section of my list of best picks among cars in its class. More luxurious and highly stylized than ever before, the E Class bursts out into 2007 ready to take on the highways and the competition.

The Good:

  • slick and classy interior and exterior design
  • range of powered up V8 engines
  • all wheel drive comes as an option for both sedan and wagon body styles
  • mixes drive and handling well
  • latest safety features

The Bad:

  • expensive
  • electronic controlled brakes are dated
  • hard to understand controls

Lots of changes have been made for the 2007 model year,and most of them revolve around engine renovations. The E500 model of 2006 has been cut from the standings and its place has been taken by the new E550, with a 5.5 liter engine and 382 horsepower. The E55 AMG is now the E63 AMG, with 507 horsepower V8 engine. Although the E350 didn’t change its name, though, it has also been updated to a new diesel fueled engine called BlueTec, which is supposed to decrease emissions.

You can get the 2007 Mercedes Benz E Class in two body styles, sedan and wagon, and three trim levels, the E550, the E350, and the E63 AMG, the high performance level. The E350, the base level, which comes in either sedan or wagon, comes standard with:

  • power lift gate on the wagon
  • sunroof
  • leather seating
  • dual zone climate control
  • interior wood trim
  • COMAND interface

The E550, which only comes in the sedan body style, is he next level up after the E350, and it makes an addition of:

  • Airmatic adaptive suspension
  • premium leather upholstery
  • four zone automatic climate control
  • ventilated front seats

Then, at the top, is the high performance level, called the E63 AMG, which adds:

  • sports seats
  • better brakes
  • Distronic adaptive cruise control
  • sport tuned Airmatic suspension

The 2007 Mercedes Benz E Class did exceptionally well in government crash tests, scoring four out of five stars for the frontal impact tests, and the full five for side impact. This could be because the E Class is so well equipped with safety features, included full length side curtain air bags, stability control, and antilock brakes with brake assist. It also comes standard with the new PreSafe system, which senses an oncoming collision and adjusts for it to protect the driver and passengers, and the TeleAid emergency system.

Cheers,

    Went out to do the video review of the C63 today. With the traction control off, it SMOKES the tires. It was a real kick. we’re looking for someplace in Houston where we can cut loose without getting arrested. Anyone have and ideas where we can go? Preferably in W or NW Houston.
