Mercedes E-Class (5th, W213/S213) Review Rundown
The E-Class has moved to Mercedes' latest MBUX infotainment and connectivity software. The right-hand display now touch-operated via the screen itself, with a square pad to replace the rotary click wheel control. The seats really are very comfortable, although this and myriad other options contribute to a laugh-inducing sticker price.

Reviewers from Autocar have found the following[***]:
The fifth-generation Mercedes E-Class was launched four years ago. The focus for the Audi A6 rival's mid-life revamp is a totally overhauled electrical system. It also enables 48V mild-hybrid technology across every combustion-engined variant. Alongside this, there is some evolved styling both inside and out, boosted equipment levels and new colour and wheel options.
Reviewers from Autoexpress have found the following[***]:
Mercedes has sold more than one million examples of the tenth-generation E-Class since its launch in 2016. This facelifted version has a lot riding on its shoulders from a commercial perspective. Mercedes has fiddled with the E- class' engines, safety kit and cabin, which means there are plenty of risks involved. Initial impressions are good – the updated E- Class seems to share the same comfortable ride as the outgoing car.

Mercedes-Benz E-Class has been updated for 2016. Facelifted big Benz tested in hybrid form. Updated engine range plus latest infotainment. Still the definitive luxury exec? It's much less gawky in the flesh, appearing much lower and sleeker than its predecessor.
