Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

For 2018, the E-Class coupe and convertible are fully redesigned and now match the sedan and wagon, which were redesigned last year. There are also some new trim levels, including the E400 sedan and high-performance AMG E63 S sedan and wagon.

PROS
Exquisite cabin that sets new standards for design and comfort
Available semiautonomous driver assistance technology
Vast array of personalization options
Desirable high-horsepower AMG models are back

CONS
Standard suspension can feel stiff over rough surfaces
Sedan's cargo capacity is small for the class
