2017 Mercedes Benz E300 4MATIC FIRST DRIVE REVIEW (2 of 4)

MotoMan drives the 2017 Mercedes Benz E300 4MATIC – the 10 th generation of Mercedes Benz’ arguably most important car. However, this Mercedes E Class is different than the nine Mercedes E Klasse that came before it – this one has A LOT more tech. More than just from one generation of car, no matter if it’s a Mercedes or not, so MotoMan breaks out the 2017 Mercedes Benz E300 into two different aspects – the car itself and then the technology as a stand alone item. So in this second of a four part series, the FIRST DRIVE REVIEW, MotoMan focuses on the car parts – engineering and driving dynamics – as well as the intersection of technology and design in this Mercedes. Coming up on a separate FIRST DRIVE REVIEW, the 2017 Mercedes Benz E300 and Autonomous Driving . . .

What tech do I use every day I drive? A six disc CD changer! And heated seats when it’s cold out, which is often seeing how I’m a Michigander.

Personally, I’m more inclined to want to skip excessive tech. I’m more than comfortable with my own ability to drive a car and I’m somewhat concerned about how modern infotainment systems are going to be functioning 10 years down the road. They’re no different from computers nowadays, and I think we all know computers rarely age gracefully.

All that being said, I must admit I’ve never really had the opportunity to experience a lot of the features now finding there way into cars. Maybe if could actually get my hands on such a car and experience it first hand I would actually change my mind. Until then, though, I’ll remain cautious.

Alejandro Rodriguez says:

When are you gonna post part 3 of this car. Wasn’t it gonna be posted on Monday?

KingStivan says:

really man ? a first drive review of the E-class and its fitted with the 4MATIC AWD and you’re talking about taillights ?? how does it drive with the AWD is it better or worse than the RWD is the engine too small for AWD you know !! it’s your job to ask the good questions . nevertheless it’s a good review but i really wouldn’t call it a drive review ^^ and i would go with gopro’s black edtion as it has more dynamic range that way we could see the road as well as you in the car .

F to the D to the R…

Gus1Gus1 says:

Did those purple ambient lights make you feel like you were in a Las Vegas lounge?

J T3 says:

I can’t stand the new Mercedes design language. The interiors look so swirly and cheap. What’s with the ugly LED lights glowing everywhere? It looks like a cheap Kia interior with an Asian swoopy design for the exterior.

Zuhrie Bennett says:

Moto Man hands down is my fav car reviewer on YouTube. No comparisons!

Lisa Stavropoulos says:

When are you planning a review of the MB E63AMGs (2017+)? I always enjoy your reviews.

iBOOM says:

Most e-class are sold with 4 banger(mostly diesel) in euopre. What is the fuss Mr. MotoMan?
For sure a v6 or inline 6 has the status.

Joseph Panford says:

I have a 2015 C400 and looked to upgrade to the E300. I love the technology in the E300 more than my C400 but I can’t get over the engine choice. My C400 is fast and weighs less than an E300 with a 6 cylinder 326 Hp. What the heck were they thinking was that engine choice. I’m sure it was driven by the government regulations on MPG but nonetheless a poor choice in my perspective.

The099az says:

lol DFW Dallas Forth Worth represent

Kyle Whisman says:

Disengages the transmission? Isn’t that like shifting into neutral, and doing that in some states is illegal.

George Grasser says:

Does anyone know how much this would be to insure for six month premium cost?

Tippy35075 says:

I’ll take the E400 4matic fully optioned

MONEY GREEN says:

THE PRE-2014 C-CLASS LOOKS GREAT WITH THE MERCEDES STAR EMBEDDED IN THE GRILL, BUT THE CURRENT C-CLASS & THE 2017 E-CLASS DON’T LOOK RIGHT WITH THE STAR EMBEDDED IN THE GRILL. BOTH OF THOSE CARS LOOK BETTER WITH THE TRADITIONAL MERCEDES GRILL, WITH THE 3 POINTED STAR ON TOP OF THE HOOD !

Bruce Sarver says:

I love ‘adaptive cruise’ and ‘stop and go’. As a older driver – I think the safety systems are a big plus. The state of Florida should make those systems mandatory- if you know what I mean!

CarCriteria says:

I think I would shy away from the e class bc of the tech. I live in va in the us

demented moose says:

Now all the mb sedans looks the same. I can’t tell the new c class from s class from e class anymore

John Ryu says:

You sound like Saul Goodman

James McDonald says:

I drove that engine in a Glk I think. It was a loner while my CLS was getting serviced. But any way I was shocked by the power and I’m use to the big power of my car.

Jimmy 3690 says:

I wouldn’t choose any of the german cars. From what I’ve seen on google they have terrible reliabilty for a high priced vehicle but reviewers keep praising them. Why?

CT 10 says:

Tesla’s Autopilot which came out before drivepilot.

pete2323 says:

I hate 4 cylinders…it doesn’t really even work in the c class…can’t believe they put it in the e class as well…For how expensive this car will be the 4 cylinder is pathetic imo…Nobody wants to pay 60k-70k dollars for a 4 cylinder….

Maria das Santos says:

Beautiful car wonderfully presented but unavailable here in the UK.

Elliott Manning says:

I love all of the technology in this car, and if I had the money, I would consider it, or at least take out for a test drive. Since my daily is a 2005 Ford Focus, the only tech I have is a USB port from an after-market radio.

MONEY GREEN says:

THE TRADITIONAL STAND-UP MERCEDES HOOD WITH THE 3 POINTED STAR ON TOP OF THE HOOD LOOKS MUCH BETTER ON THIS CAR THAN THE STAR EMBEDDED IN THE GRILL ! THE CUT OF THE HOOD AROUND THE GRILL IS NOT ATTRACTIVE AT ALL !

Achayan369 says:

It helps manufacturers, to advance and go fully autonomous and so on, if customers choose new technologies, giving feedback helps a lot.
