Looking for a sedan that will live up to your expectations? Well, the Mercedes-Benz E280 may just be that vehicle. With a choice of engines to choose from, the stylish E280 makes short work of the miles that lie ahead. The automatic transmission is very state of the art and smooth – oh so smooth.
All Mercedes-Benz vehicles come with an array of features, both for safety and comfort. Let’s start with the comfort. The E280 sports a rich leather interior, a command and control steering wheel with multi-function buttons, a separate navigation system, an audio system that will make you wonder how you ever lived with the audio system in your current vehicle, powered front driver and front passenger seats, and split folding rear seats. The electrically retractable and heated side mirrors, automatic tinting rearview mirror, dual climate controls and wood trim throughout give a real sense of elegance that befits the finest in automotive luxury.
Safety features incorporated into the Mercedes-Benz E280 include Parameter steering, Parktronic parking assist – which alerts you when you’re getting too close to an object (the neighbour’s kids for example) an Electronic stability programme that helps keep the vehicle on the road (and not off into the bush), ABS brakes that provide the stopping power when the need arises, front airbags, door airbags, side curtain airbags and a Speedtronic cruise control that monitors a predetermined distance between you and the vehicle in front.
Slip into the sumptious interior and whisk yourself away with a 0-100 km/h acceleration time of around 7.5 – 8.5 seconds for either the silky and very quiet 170 kW 3.0 V6 petrol or the equally refined and very frugal 140 kW 3.0 V6 Turbodiesel. The big saloon or roomy estate is nimble and accurate, even when pushed hard over winding and undulating roads. The Mercedes Benz E280 is deceptively quick and is a delight to drive hard.
A simply stunning design and an outstanding driving experience, the Mercedes-Benz E280 is a must on any descerning buyer’s list of new cars worthy of consideration.
