The revised body design emphasized aero-efficiency The car rates with a .25 coefficient of drag that, according to Mercedes-Benz, makes it the slipperiest luxury car available. Engine choices are a 3.5-liter V-6, a 5.5-liter V-8, and a 3-liter diesel engine.

The E-class gets a new, high-tech suspension that continuously adapts for road conditions as standard, while Mercedes-Benz's air suspension is an option. New adaptive headlight technology shifts the lights from low to high automatically, depending on whether other cars are around.

Mercedes-Benz accentuates the interior with mood lighting. The car can be had with a blind spot detection system and lane departure warning, which alerts you if it detects unintentional lane departure. A driver alert system monitors attributes such as steering, and will sound an alert if it thinks you are asleep at the wheel.

The dual-pane sunroof gives the car a very open feeling. Mercedes-Benz's multicontour seats are available in the E-class for driver and front passenger, which provide not only a high degree of adjustment, but can be set for massage.

The E-class gets the usual cabin tech, navigation, Bluetooth, and digital music capabilities, and this package is similar to that offered in the new C-class last year. That means a good iPod interface and a Bluetooth phone system that works, something lacking in non-updated Mercedes-Benz models.
