I'm not sure whether the second sentence is attributable to Weber or the author?"The E-class is the heart of the company," said Thomas Weber, the Mercedes director in charge of research. It makes more money and receives more design and engineering love than anything else in the Mercedes brochure
Hybrid only in the UK. No straight petrol except for an alleged mad V8 petrol at some unspecified future date.At launch.
350e & petrol hybrid will be available - further down the article.
I think worldwide sales have a different skew. We like the C in this country as the reality is the E is on the large size for our quaint island and average garage/parking spot as I'm sure you're learning.Yes Phil. Me too. I always thought the C Class was/is MB bread & butter car.
The E class is the car you buy when you have a family...especially the estate with three rows of seats.I've always seen the C as the younger man's car, while the E is what men buy when they reach that certain age, and start spending their pension money.
The C is also considered the equivalent of the BMW 3 series and, more importantly, the Mondeo, which are the bread and butter for BMW and Ford. The E is more comparable to the 7 series and the Jag XJ, and cars of that ilk.
I'm glad that Merc decided to put the centre screen back where it belongs. It looks more natural there, and is less tempting to thieves who probably think it is detachable in its current dash mounted form.
As for me, I don't think I'll ever buy an E, as I want to remain young for as long as possible.
That's promising as it will be RHD.Just to really annoy the petrol peeps on here from 2016 Mercedes-Benz E-Class review | first drive | CarsGuide
E400 petrol (3.0-litre twin turbo V6 petrol with all-wheel-drive)
That's why we bought an E. Simply huge inside.Depends how much space you want in the boot. Had a C class Estate as a loan car and couldn't get the bike in without removing the retractable cover. Not enough width between suspension. I can get a tandem in the E
