Mercedes-Benz E220 CDI (W212) Review

This is the fourth-generation of the E-Class range of executive cars which was produced by Mercedes-Benz between 2009 and 2016 as the successor to the W211 E-Class.

The car is a real eye-catcher you can’t pass without noticing it. You will attract attention with the noble limousine – a reason for this might be the vehicle’s size of nearly 4,9 metres. When you’re testing the car for the first time you will realize the forcefulness of the car. The re-designed headlight are nice looking in comparison with those from the predecessor series W211. You might like the optional LED headlights even more. The Mercedes-Benz emblem was fixed to the front guard instead of the engine hood – that looks more modern is frees the E class from its old-established image. On the road, the beautifully-built E-Class has refreshing honesty about its purpose. It is steady and undramatic, effortlessly reeling in long stretches of unrestricted autobahn. It does not posses super-sharp responses and nor should it.

At low speeds and wide throttle openings, it is obviously a four-pot diesel, but the engine is almost totally heard rather than felt. At speed it is smooth and perfectly adequate in mid-range acceleration, with three adults on board. The 250 CDI’s extra 74lb ft of torque is, however, very noticeable and might be worth the extra money.
