Why Lease A Mercedes-Benz E-Class?
What’s The Cabin Like?
How Does It Drive?
The Mercedes E-Class Saloon has a 540-litre, square-shaped boot that can swallow about the same amount of luggage as an equivalent BMW 5 Series. The Mercedes, though, has a trick up its sleeve, with a cavernous under-floor storage area which has enough additional space to hold a full carry-on suitcase or a clever little fold-up crate that you can drop your groceries into, and then lift the crate in and out.
Lease an EQ Power mild-hybrid model and you’ll have to sacrifice a bit of luggage space owing to the size of the battery – a large hump in the middle of the boot floor makes it harder to pack certain items and the overall capacity is reduced to 400 litres.
The E-Class Estate, by comparison, gets a massive boot, almost as big as that of the Volvo V90, and the rear seats fold down with the push of a button. With the seats up, the estate holds 680 litres, rising to 1820 litres when the 2nd row is folded flat.
The E220d diesel is the most economical in the regular range, averaging 45mpg in real-world tests, with CO2 emissions on a par with its rivals. It's also RDE2 compliant, which is good for your company car tax bill.
However, if it's cheap benefit-in-kind (BIK) tax you’re looking for, you should consider leasing an E300e or E300de EQ Power plug-in hybrid. The former is powered by a 2.0-litre petrol engine and an electric system running on a 13.5kWh battery pack. That means it can deliver an all-electric range of 34 miles. The diesel alternative improves on the E300e’s economy figure but doesn’t really add any extra electric driving mileage.
High Performance ModelsThere are 2 AMG models to choose from. The first is the E53 4Matic+ with a 3.0-litre 6-cylinder engine. And then there’s the V8, the E63S 4Matic+, which can reach 62mph in just 3.4 seconds.
The Mercedes-Benz E-Class Vs Competitors
Mercedes has a reputation for building quality products. The only downside is that repair costs can be higher than other brands. But the company also rates highly for customer service.
Most models have a decent-sized boot but the battery pack on the hybrid models means some useful load space is sacrificed, especially on the Saloon.
Parking sensors are fitted as standard on all models. The AMG Line Premium trim receives an additional 360-degree camera, as well as a built-in dashcam.
The Mercedes E-Class remains a very popular car to lease, putting comfort and luxury at the forefront, where others have leaned towards driving dynamics and becoming more sporty instead.
