Alongside BMW at the 2016 Detroit Auto Show is Mercedes-Benz, debuting its latest iteration of the famous E Class. Mercedes-Benz has been copying the S Class with all of its new cars lately and the E Class is no different. With quiet and reserved exterior styling, the E Class is a handsome, if understated, luxury car. It has just enough flash to make it look premium, but is reserved enough to make it worthy of the three-pointed star.

BMW interiors may be a bit boring sometimes. But it’s classy, simplistic and sporty. That’s the way I like it… and wait for the new 5 Series! It will have a lot of the features of the 7 Series. It will be the lightest in its class and will thus drive much, much better than the E Class. It will be the Class Leader, you’ll see.

  2. […] Mercedes-Benz is currently on a roll, pumping out one successful new model after another and slowly increasing both its model portfolio and its profits.
