Though its look may not fit with the latest swoopy Benzes, the revised 2014 Mercedes-Benz E550 is graceful, powerful, more luxurious than before and still an excellent luxury sedan.
Mercedes-Benz has refreshed its entire midsize E-Class lineup for 2014 — a sizable roster of cars including a coupe, convertible, sedan and wagon, most of which are offered with rear- or all-wheel drive. There are a half-dozen powertrains, and even a high-performance AMG option for both the sedan and wagon. The previous E-Class was good, but fell short in a couple of areas — notably interior luxuriousness. After being a mainstay of the Mercedes-Benz luxury brand for decades, the E-Class didn't feel special anymore. With fellow German competitors like the BMW 5 Series and Audi A6 gaining fans — and refreshed domestic competitors like the outstanding new 2014 Cadillac CTS winning awards — it was time for an update.
The changes for 2014 are mild, but they touch on areas of the car that needed to be touched (compare the 2013 and 2014 models here). The question is, did Mercedes-Benz go far enough to restore the E-Class to desirability in a market that's more competitive than ever? The car we drove to answer this question was a new, V-8-powered E550 4Matic sedan with all-wheel drive.
