A key rival to the BMW 5 Series is from a competing German manufacturer with its range of executive models, while the Mercedes-Benz E-Class range officially came into existence in 1993, the model can be traced back through several earlier generations all the way to 1953.

The current range is made up of several different body styles and models: Mercedes-Benz E-Class Saloon, Mercedes-Benz E-Class Estate, Mercedes-Benz E-Class Cabriolet, Mercedes-Benz E-Class Coupe and Mercedes-Benz E-Class E63 AMG

Best known and the best seller is the E-Class saloon which is now in its third iteration thanks to an all-new model launched in 2010. Of these the diesel-powered versions are the most popular as these appeal to company car drivers and company executives, though petrol and hybrid versions are also available.
