2009 mercedes-benz e-class Professional Edmunds Review
Source: Edmunds

...The E63 AMG is a high-performance model powered by a 6.2-liter V8 that makes 507 hp and 465 lb-ft of torque. It's mated to a seven-speed Speedshift transmission, which can change gears 50 percent faster than transmissions in other E-Class models. In performance testing, the E63 went from zero to 60 in an impressive 4.3 seconds. Fuel economy for the 2009 Mercedes-Benz E-Class ranges widely. The EPA estimates that the rear-wheel-drive E350 gets 17 mpg city/24 mpg highway and 19 mpg in combined driving. The V8-powered E550 drops those numbers to 15/22/17 mpg. Topping both of these is the E320...

CarGurus' Review for 2009 mercedes-benz e-class
Source: CarGurus

...The 2009 Mercedes-Benz E-Class sets the standard for the large luxury car class,
combining attractive styling, amazing performance, and the luxurious interiors owners have come to expect from the German automaker.
Although Mercedes trips up a bit when it comes to safety,
and the sedans and wagons exhibit a bit of body lean in tight corners,
the E-Class still excels in just about every way, although owners will have to pay a hefty price for all that German engineering...

...drama-free acceleration. The engine's sound is different, but not by any means noisier than the gas V-6; in fact, the latter has to rev higher and work a little bit harder to get a move on, so in some instances you're more likely to hear that one than the diesel. Overall, though, the cabin is very quiet. The seven-speed automatic transmission is so smooth it fades into the background. Shared with the gas models, this transmission has a button on the center console marked C/S that selects between two drive modes, Comfort and Sport. Comfort is a word that makes sense when applied to adjustable...

...High-tech diesel engines also produce 20 to 30 percent less carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide than a comparable gasoline engine. The E320 has a distinctly German personality. The ride is firm, the handling is tight, and the brakes are powerful. The test car's cabin was warm and inviting, due in large measure to the wood-grain trim that was sprinkled across the dash, console and door panels. The seats are firm, and those in front, particularly, provide good support. Rear-seat legroom is adequate but not overly generous. The Comand system for operating the navigation and audio system is not as...
