The stunning new Mercedes E-Class sports a stylish designed large badge on the grill, quad headlamps with adaptive xenon headlights and sharp lines combined with polished edges from the front to the back of the car and presenting itself with warranted esteem.

The new Mercedes E-Class Coupe and Cabriolet are both available with five engine options in the UK. At 181bhp, the entry level 2.1-litre direct injection turbo charged four-cylinder E200 petrol engine is only moderately less blow-your-hair-back inspiring than the mid-level 208bhp E250. The diesel contemporaries of these two engines -- E220 CDI and the E250 CDI which are capable of generating 168bhp and 201bhp, respectively.

The new E-Class is also available with a top-end 248bhp diesel engine in the E350. Not available in the UK, the E500 Coupe is a 4.6-litre, V8 engine.

Depending on the model, the new E-Class seats between four and seven people. Mannual and automatic gear box options are available and feature either six or seven gears. Both gearboxes come standard with steering wheel mounted paddle and column shift and a stop/start and brake energy recuperation system.

The interior features a knob-based Comand interface located forward of the center console. Mercedes-Benz MB race communication system is compatible with a smartphone. Optional interior features include leather, massaging bolster-adjustable seats and tri-zone automatic climate control.

In addition to industry basics the new Mercedes E-Class safety equipment include anti-lock breaks and traction control. An electronic stability system and nine airbags come standard with the new E-Class. However, it's Mercedes Pre-Safe system that is setting the world of safety ablaze.

The Pre-Safe system monitors driving behavior testing for symptoms of fatigue and if warranted, assists the driver by maintaining center in a chosen lane using the Distronic Plus automatic steering system. If Mercedes senses eminent danger, it makes adjustments to seat positions, raises the windows, closes the moon roof, and tightens the seat belts. Optional safety features include automatic high-beam headlights, a blind-spot and lane departure warning system, and a night vision system that improves driver visibility with an on-board video of the upcoming 20 meters of road.

For those looking for casual style, the new E-Class Cabriolet is a soft-top convertible that opens and closes within 20 seconds at speeds up to 30 mph. Used Mercedes with the same interior and exterior dimensions are available from Mercedes dealers that offer late model E-Class coupes.

However, only the new E-Class offers the Airscarf, a seat heating system that blows warm at the back of the necks of the driver and passenger. Also the Airscarf option is a system that blows oncoming air over the occupants by raising a spoiler mounted on the top of the windshield and elevating the rear head rests.

Another new addition to the line is the E400 BlueTec Hybrid, a hybrid petrol/electric car for the green consumer. With sensors that detect speed and switch from a pure electric mode to the combination mode, the E400 offers between 40 and 52 kilometers per gallon of fuel efficiency. This 3.5-liter V6 offers the same regenerative braking system in the gearbox as the other models' engines.

Today's tomorrow is unequivocally the new E-Class Mercedes.
