What Is the 2020 Mercedes-Benz E-Class?

The Mercedes-Benz E-Class mid-size luxury car is offered in sedan, wagon, coupe and convertible body styles. It offers a range of engines, including performance powertrains in the AMG variants. Rear- and all-wheel-drive versions are offered, and the E-Class competes against cars like the Audi A6, BMW 5 Series and Lexus GS.

What’s New on the 2020 Mercedes-Benz E-Class?

The E350 sedan replaces the E300 and features a slightly more powerful 255-horsepower, turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine. All variants now have standard blind spot warning and keyless access and starting. Coupe and convertible versions now have standard heated front seats, wireless device charging, satellite radio with a six-month trial, a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster and a Burmester premium stereo.

What Features in the 2020 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Are Most Important?

The E-Class offers advanced safety features like automatic emergency braking and steering assistance, and it has the capability of warning other cars with its Car-to-X technology. The range of body styles should help you find a version that’s right for your needs, and high-powered AMG versions bump up the performance for driving enthusiasts. 

Should I Buy the 2020 Mercedes-Benz E-Class?

If you want a stylish mid-size luxury car that drives well, has a first-rate cabin and is packed with technology, the E-Class should meet your needs. However, it can get pricey with options, and the optional air suspension might be too firm for some people.

Warranty FAQs

What is a Bumper-to-Bumper warranty?

Often called a basic warranty or new-vehicle warranty, a bumper-to-bumper policy covers components like air conditioning, audio systems, vehicle sensors, fuel systems and major electrical components. Most policies exclude regular maintenance like fluid top offs and oil changes, but a few brands have separate free-maintenance provisions, and those that do offer them is slowly rising. Bumper-to-bumper warranties typically expire faster than powertrain warranties.

What is a Powertrain warranty?

Don't be misled a 10-year or 100,000-mile powertrain warranty doesn't promise a decade of free repairs for your car. It typically covers just the engine and transmission, along with any other moving parts that lead to the wheels, like the driveshaft and constant velocity joints. Some automakers also bundle seat belts and airbags into their powertrain warranties. With a few exceptions, powertrain warranties don't cover regular maintenance like engine tuneups and tire rotations.

What is included in Roadside Assistance?

Some automakers include roadside assistance with their bumper-to-bumper or powertrain warranties, while others have separate policies. These programs cover anything from flat-tire changes and locksmith services to jump-starts and towing. Few reimburse incidental costs like motel rooms (if you have to wait for repairs).

What other services could be included in a warranty?

Some automakers include free scheduled maintenance for items such as oil changes, air filters and tire rotations. Some include consumables including brake pads and windshield wipers; others do not. They are typically for the first couple of years of ownership of a new car.

What does CPO mean?

A certified pre-owned or CPO car has been inspected to meet minimum quality standards and typically includes some type of warranty. While dealers and third parties certify cars, the gold standard is an automaker-certified vehicle that provides a factory-backed warranty, often extending the original coverage. Vehicles must be in excellent condition and have low miles and wear to be certified, which is why off-lease vehicles feed many CPO programs.
