Mercedes E-Class 200 Drive Review


If you want a car that offers drive dynamics with a splash of luxury, this new Mercedes E200 is the car you should be considering. This Mercedes E200 will be reliable, safe, and sensible. We say sensible since it comes with an ECO Start/Stop function which will automatically switch the engine off when you come to a full stop, then seamlessly restart the car when the accelerator is depressed. Having this technology on board will help you save petrol in traffic jams and reduce the car’s emissions.

The well-equipped, stylish interior will keep you comfortable, and the smooth ride will remind you of the upscale element of Mercedes’s reputation and the 4-cylinder turbocharged engine will have you enjoying your daily commuting in this sedan.

The steering is light with enough road feel to give the driver some hint of feedback. The spring and damper set-up on this E200 is pretty much spot on; its relatively firm through corners, providing good levels of body control and limited roll. Ride quality is also good, smoothing bumps with authority. As for handling and road manners, there are no issues with this 1.6-tonne luxury sedan. The 17-inch wheels grip eagerly on wet or dry surfaces The E200 offers first-rate front-end grip with predictable understeer during really hard cornering.


Generally, it absorbs the bumps and potholes pretty well, although undulating and uneven road surfaces, driven over at high speed, will get the E200 responding back with some stiffness due more to its origin where such roads are almost never a question. The 7-speed G-Tronic automatic gearbox is a dream to use and there is hardly a hint of shift and kick down effect even when confronting a quick immediate pickup or emergency slowdown. Use the ‘Sport’ mode and the throttle is more sensitive providing a little more immediate reaction to your requests.


This is a ‘superbly’ comfortable sedan and after a few days with it behind the wheel and also in the rear of the cabin you have no regrets with your monthly instalments.
