2008 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Review

The 2008 Mercedes-Benz E-Class line of sedans and wagons comes equipped with bold headlights set in a striking new bumper design that improves both the vehicle's aerodynamics and visual appeal. With a five-star rating for side crashes and rollovers and four-stars for frontal crashes from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the E-Class is both stylish and safe.

The E320 Bluetec Sedan comes equipped with a 208 horsepower, 3-liter, 24-valve V6 diesel engine and a seven-speed automatic transmission with manual gear selection technology at an MSRP of $52,325.

The E350 Sedan has a 268 horsepower, 3.5 liter, 24 valve V6 engine and features a lowered sport suspension and dramatic 18-inch, 10-twin-spoke wheels. MSRP is $51,325. The E350 4Matic Wagon has the same engine with all-wheel drive and seven-passenger capacity for $56,475.

The E550 has a 382 horsepower, 5.5 liter, 32-valve V8 with a driver-adaptive seven-speed automatic transmission (and the same sport suspension and wheels) at an MSRP of $59,775.

The E63 AMG Sedan sports a 507 horsepower, 6.3 liter, 32-valve V8 engine, and a seven-speed automatic transmission with AMG SpeedShift technology for manual gear selection and features shift paddles inside the car, as well as a more flexible suspension system and enhanced braking. MSRP is $85,375.

The E63 AMG Wagon seating for seven, the same engine and suspension system, and elegant interior wood trim. The MSRP is $86,175.

With all these options, it is clear that there is a 2008 Mercedes E-Class for every driver.
