2012 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Review

This is the 2012 Mercedes-Benz E-Class. All four Sedans in the E-Class line put forward bold styling class-leading safety and pioneering technology. The E350 Sedan is both efficient and exhilarating. A dual overhead cam V6 with continuously variable timing coupled with dual-stage intake manifold ensures immediate response with every throttle input. The E550 Sedan rides on airmatic adaptive air suspension. You don’t have to worry about power under the hood. You’ll have your choice of a 50 state blue tech clean diesel. Plus gasoline V6 and V8 models that are also available with 4MATIC All Wheel Drive. All this advanced technology doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice old world craftsmanship. The spacious E-Class Sedan cabin has polished wood and chrome trim which compliments the precisely double stitched upholstery. A Multi Function Steering Wheel and central controller of the command system puts the most commonly used functions right at your fingertips. Power Glass Sunroof Hands-Free Bluetooth Interface – these are all standard equipment. The 2012 E-Class Sedan. This is Mercedes.
