What kind of vehicle is the 2023 Mercedes-Benz E-Class? What does it compare to?
Offered in sedan, wagon, coupe, and convertible forms, the E-Class lineup of mid-size luxury cars compares well with the Audi A6 and BMW 5-Series.
Is the 2023 Mercedes-Benz E-Class a good car?
These are phenomenal cars with terrific engines, balanced handling, sublime ride quality, and largely approachable tech. We rate the range at 7.5 out of 10, but AMG versions might score even higher.(Read more about how we rate cars.)
What’s new for the 2023 Mercedes-Benz E-Class?
The E-Class lineup sees no major tweaks this year, though E63 models with their 603-hp twin-turbo V-8 return after a brief hiatus.

Mercedes slaps E badges on a wide range of models, including sedans, coupes, convertibles, and wagons that either sit up high or hunker down low. All wear the brand’s signature curvy lines, but the numbers on back—and what’s underhood, of course—define details. Look for bigger wheels and unique grille treatments with vertical lines on AMG models.
The E450 All Terrain is the odd car out with its Subaru Outback-inspired high-riding stance, while the E63 wagon is an easy favorite for enthusiasts.
Inside, twin 12.3-inch touchscreens tucked behind a glass panel work best with voice commands, though the fiddly steering wheel-mounted controls can be effective with practice. The basic look inside is elegant and modern with wood trim, and downright sporty with optional carbon fiber.
E350 models make use of a 2.0-liter turbo-4 rated at a decent 255 hp. More power awaits in E450s and AMG E53s with their lovely 3.0-liter turbo inline-6 fitted with a mild-hybrid system that bumps up power with little fuel economy downside. Look for ratings as high as 25 mpg, though Benz doesn’t currently offer our market a plug-in hybrid E-Class.
Strong crash-test ratings are augmented by decent standard crash-avoidance tech and a huge range of options that allow for limited stints of hands-off driving.
How much does the 2023 Mercedes-Benz E-Class cost?
E350 sedans start at about $58,000, which buys 18-inch alloy wheels, synthetic leather upholstery, and heated front seats. Figure the better part of $3,000 for all-wheel drive, or a well-spent $6,000 for the E450.
The E450 All Terrain runs about $72,000, but as with all E-Class models, you’ll want to budget at least a few grand for optional features.
