The E-Class AMG Line Edition – for Saloon and Estate models – takes its cues from our AMG performance experts,focused on sporty design as well as athletic handling.19"AMG 5-twin spoke alloy wheels painted titanium grey feature, as does AMG bodystyling for front and rear apron and side skirts, plus privacy glass for rear side windows and rear windscreen. Perforated brake discs with ‘Mercedes-Benz’ lettering complement the look of the AMG Line. Inside, you’ll find a 3-spoke multifunction AMG steering wheel in black nappa leather with flattened bottom section, chrome inserts and touch-control buttons.Further interior highlights are AMG sports pedals with rubber studs, black leather upholstery, plus open-pore ash wood trim and centre console in black.
The Mercedes E-Class’ interior looks, feels and even smells luxurious . Sitting in it is a constant reminder that life is going really rather well. It’s bursting with clever equipment and tech, but you’re not confronted with a sea of confusing buttons like other models such as the S class that contain a never ending amount of buttons. Instead you get four classy metal air vents, large swathes of swooping trim pieces and sculpted air vents at either end of the dashboard.
This car is really a thing of beauty.
Even the most affordable SE cars come with Leather upholstery is standard – you can choose from black, brown and beige – and the dashboard is finished with aluminium trim pieces. Ambient lighting in 64 customisable colours is standard across the range, too.
Mercedes E-Class AMG Line cars are even nicer but you get black Artico leather seats instead of the real deal which is rather strange. That said, it extends out onto the dashboard and you get a slab of unvarnished wood sweeping through it for good measure.
The Mercedes E-Class is a big posh saloon with a lovely interior that makes popping to the shops feel like more of an occasion than in the likes of the BMW 5 Series and Audi A6.
It’s not just the Mercedes’ cabin which has the obligatory feel-good-factor dialled-in – it looks pretty swanky on the outside too. In saloon guise, it’s much more elegant than the overtly sporty BMW 5 Series and more aggressive Audi A6.
The Mercedes E-Class’ boot is pretty roomy too so it’ll have no trouble carrying everything you need on trips to and from the golf club. If you plan to venture further afield, you’ll find the E-Class does an excellent job wafting along at motorway speeds – especially if you pick a smooth six-cylinder diesel car with the optional air suspension fitted.
That being said, the more affordable four-cylinder versions are very nearly as relaxing to travel in and you can get it with masses of clever driver assistance systems too which make long motorway jaunts feel like nipping to the shops.
