New Mercedes E-Class review: The most high-tech Mercedes EVER!

This is the brand E-Class!

Mat's flown over to Vienna to take a better look at 's rival, and he will find out just how much the E-Class has actually evolved over the previous generation.

Starting with the style, it's reasonable to state it looks pretty comparable to the previous edition. Beginning around the back, it looks quite wise with a chrome strip running along the whole of the vehicle, along with a set of smart-looking three-pointed star lights. So it looks pretty good, although it's let down by some exceptionally fake-looking exhausts! Along the side, the is offered with alloys that range from 17 to 21 inches, and it has some sleek pop-out door manages. Head round to the front and the E-Class comes with a brand new grille, nevertheless, the general design is still pretty comparable to the last gen.

Step inside and the modifications are far more obvious, starting with the big super screen that stretches across the whole dash! It features three screens, with digital dials for the motorist, a bespoke screen for the passenger, and a main infotainment screen. You can download third-party apps such as TikTok and Zoom, while the driver's display features all-new 3D results! You'll discover premium products throughout the majority of the cabin, although there are a few more affordable littles plastic to be found. The seats are likewise quite comfortable, and there's loads of headroom and space for passengers in the back.

There are several engines to choose from. The entry-level is the E200, which is offered as either gas or diesel and comes with a 2-litre turbo engine that delivers around 200hp. There's also an E450 that's geared up with a 3-litre straight-six turbo that can put down 380hp. Then there are a couple of plug-in hybrids offered, with the range-topper being the E400e which includes a 2-litre turbocharged engine paired with an electric motor that can put down 380hp. All vehicles come equipped with a 9-speed automatic gearbox, and the plug-in hybrids come with a 20kWh battery which benefits a range of approximately 70 miles.

hasn't verified the rate yet, but you can expect it to start from around ₤ 50,000. However will it deserve it? You'll need to stick to Mat and see on your own!

      @Christopher Mthe s class used to set the design theme for the rest of the merc models. The a class has done that instead this time around. Therefore you have a new s class that looks like an a class from the outside and a Tesla from the inside

    I actually like it. I’m just sick of cars getting rid of physical buttons. There was at least enough room for temperature controls

      I could not agree more. Plus “high quality” now means a big touchscreen, rather than actually high quality.

      It is cheaper for most companies to just get rid of the buttons actually.
      Mercedes isn’t staying on buttons because they have some principle or engineering pride. It’s pre-existing contracts and bunch of lobbying. Pure business.

      No wonder Germans are starting to smoke more meth.

      @Jinsi JH K agreed. Where there is money to be made. I just don’t feel like anyone wants a touchscreen only system. This is something pushed onto consumers.

    all I hear is “you can get the new e class with”. Glad to see 99% of it is still optional and the poverty spec ones that ppl actually get will have none of these features 😂😂. Never change Mercedes ❤

      Haha yeah lets make it difficult to open.. It was too easy and foolproof before.

    how can a £100 android phone have 120hz smooth scrolling , yet a expensive cars touch screen is more like 10 hz

    1. 10010011 Midg Avatar
      10010011 Midg

      You wont have a 120hz screen in a 100 dollar phone. Atleast I am not aware of a single phone that has a 120 hz screen at that price. 120hz is usually in the mid to high range not in the budget range.

    2. manilove2pwn Avatar

      @10010011 Midg either way a phone with decent screen is going to be 1 or 2 percent of the car value.

      10010011 Midg

      @manilove2pwn Ok but the car has an advantage. It has an entire car added on to the screen. Car screens need to fullfill more requirements than a phone screen. Which is why the tech is behind.

    You’re supposed to swipe over the door handles to get them to pop out. That’s why they are acting up

    1. Liam sels Avatar

      The same with the sunroof, swipe it back to open…..

      @Liam sels how long you own a car with this type of doorhandle?

    5. Jarkko Haimakainen Avatar
      Jarkko Haimakainen

      @Liam sels If the car sits at outside temperatures in Finland and an ice layer builds up on its door handles, a tiny bit of heating doesn’t do the trick but you have to (in the new E-class’ case) free the entire circumference of the handle probably by smacking it with your hand.
      Outside door handles of a car should be easy to use for everybody in case of an emergency (fast, intuitive and should work without battery power in a car)

    If you don’t know how the handles work it can be frustrating. But it’s actually quite easy if you know how. When you approach the car, the handles pop out but the car is still locked to prevent others from opening. When you put your hand behind the handle (same as normal handles) the car unlocks (takes a second) and then you can pull. If you pull directly while it’s opening it won’t work. Also the small rectangle on the outside is for locking and not locking / opening. If you want the handle to pop out you have to swipe with your hands over them or double tap without touching the rectangle (as it will always try to close it, same as other keyless systems with normal handles)

    Got a new Audi a couple of months ago, it has real buttons and real door handles. That wins me over every time.

      well to be fair it’s been this same argument for decades and yet still history shows modern cars were less prone to failure.

    I can’t explain how much I’m in LOVE with how this new E class looks on the outside. It makes me want to scream!!

    But the inside is cool, yet lacking. My 2019 has long slabs of polished wood, with a nice aluminum speaker on it, lights, and just feels 100% solid. 2024 definitely has more plastic inside 🙁

    As soon as I saw these door handles I knew what the issues would be. That’s a straight up deal breaker for me, making the simplest thing difficult.

    1. HEMI-pwer Avatar

      They are not that difficult to open I feel the complaint is over exaggerated. I work on these cars and those handles don’t act up that often unless you fumble the handle open and close multiple times to play with it

    Cars should be about driving and enjoying the ride not tablet and that’s why I’m glad Alfa Romeo exists . It’s the only brand who takes cars differently . 😊👍 I have 3rd Alfa and never had an issue with them . Just pure emotion , great driving experience and beauty ..

    👌🏽 Great review Matt, you did just to this car compared other reviews I have watched, it’s a shame that Mercedes would go for cheap plastic in the interior of such an expensive car.

    Design is beautiful and I agree with your verdict as for the door 🚪 handles BMW got it right.
