Packed with innovative safety technology, the 2011 E-Class Sedan line features the E350 and E550 models, along with the E63 AMG and new E350 BlueTEC.
New safety features for 2011 include Active Lane Keeping Assist and Active Blind Spot Assist with automatic brake intervention.
The E-Class Sedan is available in Sport or Luxury trim. All Luxury models come with a comfort suspension and can be identified by a four-lamella front grille and a four-spoke steering wheel. Sport models have a three-lamella grille, a three-spoke steering wheel and are fitted with a sport suspension that has stiffer shocks and springs as well as slightly lower ride height.
Mercedes-Benz designers paid careful attention to the E-Class Sedan interior, to ensure that every surface is appealing in form, color and material. The cockpit features five analog gauges, including two pairs that overlap each other.
The E350 uses the latest four-valve-per-cylinder V6 engine that produces 268 horsepower and 258 lb.-ft. of torque, while the E550 model is powered by a 32-valve 5.5-liter V8 delivering 382 horsepower and 391 lb.-ft. of torque.  The E350 BlueTEC comes with an innovative V6 turbodiesel that develops 210 horsepower and 400 lb.-ft. of torque.
The E350 and E550 Sedans can be equipped with 4MATIC all-wheel drive. The latest 4MATIC system is cleanly integrated into the automatic transmission so it fits right into the standard body and utilizes the existing front suspension.
Base model estimated mpg: 17/24
Estimated starting price: $50,275
