Here’s a practical car for the scrupulous buyers: the 2015 Mercedes-Benz E400. Particularly, we are exposing the 4MATIC flavour for this midsize, 4-door, luxury sedan.
True to its brand name, Mercedes-Benz, the sedan was furnished for classy styling with peaceful comfort and solid construction. It goes bumper-to-bumper with the likes of Audi A6, Cadillac CTS and BMW 5-series.
Great Looks and Comfy Feel
We can’t expect something less from a Mercedes-Benz and from exterior into the interior, everything has Midas touch in it. The controls work into a T without so much fuss or drama. You can enhance your cabin with the very luxurious porcelain or ebony nappa leather (for $1370); install a panoramic roof (for $1090); and get a spa-like treatment with a multi-adjustable driver seat featuring massage function (for $660).
Impressive Fuel Economy
Though certifiably not a sprinter, the old souls within the posh crowd can find happiness in E400 4MATIC. It has impressed regulatory agencies in both US and Europe with its EPA ratings. From mere 18/14 MPG 4MATIC was able to sustain the current 20/28 MPG.
As we’ve said, E400 4MATIC is not suitable for motorists with bent for fun and speed adventure. The sedan can sprint from 0-60 mph in the whole 5 seconds, making it less radiant on the road than Cadillac CTS V Sport. Despite this,3.0L V6 can summon 329 horse power and 354 pound-foot of torque. Overall, it is a dependable piece of machinery that can be used in daily commute.
