2022 Mercedes-Benz E-Class: Specs, Prices, Ratings, and Reviews (2023)


What's New

The 2022 Mercedes-Benz E-Class undergoes a few changes this year. Most notable is the removal of the AMG E 63 S Sedan and Wagon from the line-up, a change that caused many car enthusiasts to cry out in anguish. While they were not necessarily that popular among the general public in terms of sales, the concept of a 603-horsepower V8 luxury sedan and wagon was something special, and it will be missed.

Besides that, automatic high beams are now standard across the E-class lineup. Additionally, AMG sedan models now receive standard heated steering wheels, while the Coupe and Cabriolet gets rear seat USB-C ports.

Choosing Your Mercedes-Benz E-Class

The 2022 Mercedes-Benz E-Class is available in a dizzying array of configurations and trim levels. Three trim levels are available: E 350, E 450, and AMG E 53, with Sedan, Coupe, Cabriolet, and All-Terrain Wagon configurations.

The base E 350 is only available as a Sedan, while All-Terrain Wagons are only available with the E 450 trim. Sedans, Couples, and Cabriolets are available in both E 450 and AMG E 53 configurations.

Pricing ranges from $56,000 (including $1,050 in destination) for the E 350 Sedan and range up to $83,900 for the AMG E 53 Cabriolet. The Coupe holds a $4,700 premium over the Sedan, while the Cabriolet costs an additional $7,000 over the coupe.

Choosing an E 450 in wagon guise costs $5,650 over an E 450 equipped with all-wheel drive. Each of these models features a wide array of options that can further inflate prices to eye-watering levels but leaves you with the power to get an E-Class as luxurious as you want it.

Engine Choices

There are three engine choices available for the E-Class, delineated by trim level.

E 350 models receive a 2.0-liter turbocharged inline four-cylinder, while E 450 models receive a 3.0-liter turbocharged inline six-cylinder with a 48V mild-hybrid drive.

AMG E 53 models get the same engine as the E 450 models, but it has an electric auxiliary compressor and a more performance-oriented tune to increase power considerably.

All models are equipped with a nine-speed automatic transmission with paddle shifters. All-wheel drive is available on E 350 Sedans and E 450 Coupes and Cabriolets for $2,500, but it is standard on E 450 Sedans and Wagons. The AMG E 53 is rear-wheel drive only on all body styles.

Passenger and Cargo Capacity

The E-Class line varies widely on seating capacities depending on body style. Sedans fit five, with a roomy back seat, while wagons can fit up to seven with a rear-facing third row. Coupe and cabriolet models fit just four, eschewing the rear middle seat. Coupe and Convertible rear seats also offer less legroom than the sedan, but it’s enough for pre-teens.

Trunk space also varies wildly depending on configuration. The wagon leads the pack unsurprisingly, with 35 cubic feet of space behind the rear seat, and 64 cubic feet with the seats folded. Sedan models get 13.1 cubic feet of trunk space, while the coupe and cabriolet have less than 10 cubic feet.

Safety Features

The E-Class gets top marks for safety, with a Top Safety Pick+ award from the IIHS and five-star crash ratings from NHTSA. Additionally, the outward vision in the Sedan and Wagon is far above average, making it one of the safest cars on the road in our opinion.

The E-Class also has a wide array of active safety features, both standard and optional. Standard features include automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, blind-spot monitoring, driver attention monitoring, a rear-collision detection and mitigation system, and even a system that assists in keeping the car tracking straight in heavy crosswinds. Options include adaptive cruise control, hands-free driver-assist in stop and go traffic, and a surround-view camera.


Mercedes-Benz has been a leader in technology and connectivity for decades, and the current E-Class is no exception. The E-Class infotainment system features an intuitive operating system with a touch screen, a touchpad, or touch-control buttons on the steering wheel. Like Alexa, Google Assistant, and Siri, you can ask the system to do things just by saying “Hey Mercedes” and then what you want it to do, such as “turn the heat up to 72 degrees.”

Navigation is standard, as is Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. A Burmester Surround sound system is available as well, along with a heads-up display, gesture control, wireless charging, augmented video for navigation, a built-in dashcam, and active noise cancellation.

2022 Mercedes-Benz E 350 - MSRP From $56,000

The E 350 is only available as a sedan. It comes standard with leatherette upholstery in five different colors paired with five different types of wood trim, along with heated memory front seats, dual-zone climate control, and ambient lighting. All-wheel drive is available, but base E 350 models come with rear-wheel drive.

Notable packages include the $1,050 Warmth and Comfort package, which includes rapid seat heaters for the front seat, along with heated armrests and a heated steering wheel, as well as the $2,400 Premium Package which adds the Burmester sound system, park assist, a surround-view camera, hands-free trunk access, and rear cross-traffic alert. A $1,950 Driver Assistance Package is also available, with a full suite of active safety features including adaptive cruise control and stop and go traffic assist.

Individual options are many, including regular and Nappa leather for $1,620 and $2,990 respectively, ventilated front seats ($450), massaging seats ($1,320), air suspension ($1,900) and adaptive headlights ($750). As you can probably tell, you can easily add thousands of dollars to the price of the car before you realize it.

2022 Mercedes-Benz E 450 - MSRP From $58,500

The standard features and options of the E 450 largely mirror the E 350, with a few exceptions. E 450 coupe and cabriolet models receive the features of the Premium Package as standard, while the coupes also come standard with a panoramic sunroof. Additionally, the E 450 comes available in all body styles.

There are three new options for the E 450, and they apply to only the coupe and cabriolet. Soft-close doors are available for $550, while a $350 Air Balance Package adds a cabin air purifier and a cabin fragrance system. The third feature is a fluid-dispensing heated windshield wipers for $350 that prevents the standard problem of a momentarily obscured windshield when you go to clean it.

2022 Mercedes-Benz AMG E 53 - MSRP From $76,050

The AMG E 53 trim isn’t supposed to be the top-of-the-line luxury trim, but rather the performance trim. Features remain largely the same as the E 450 in sedan, coupe, and cabriolet guise, but add an AMG-specific grille and wheels. Even at this price point, standard seats are leatherette, but you can only option up to Nappa leather.

AMG-specific options include a $500 performance steering wheel, an $800 Sun Protection Package, and a $1,100 AMG Head-Up Display. Additionally, soft-close doors are available on the Sedan version for $550.

CarsDirect Tip

The path of deciding which E-class to buy should start with how much power you need, then go from there. If you don’t need more than 255 horsepower and don’t want a coupe, wagon, or cabriolet, you can get everything you need from the base E 350.

So Many Choices. The majority of midsize luxury vehicles are available in coupe and sedan body styles, but that’s not the case with the 2022 Mercedes-Benz E-Class. Mercedes offers the E-Class in sedan, coupe, cabriolet, and wagon body styles. The cabriolet and wagon bodies are uncommon for the segment and give Mercedes competitors in small segments.

With so many body styles to choose from, the E-Class appeals to a wide range of shoppers. From consumers looking for the usability of an SUV in a more stylish package to shoppers interested in getting a top-down experience for a warm Sunday cruise, the E-Class can do it all.

Goodbye V8. For 2022, Mercedes has dropped the AMG E 63 S models. That leaves a four-cylinder engine and two six-cylinder motors. While the E-Class isn’t nearly as powerful as last year, it still offers punchy acceleration. Still, we already miss the honking twin-turbo V8 engine.

The E 350 comes with a standard turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that makes 255 horsepower. The engine gets the vehicle to 60 mph in approximately 6.0 seconds, which is a respectable figure for a base engine. It’s not a spectacular standard engine for the segment, but it’s more than good enough for the daily commute.

The available E 450 model ups the ante with a turbocharged 3.0-liter six-cylinder engine with a mild-hybrid system that’s rated at 362 hp and 369 lb-ft of torque. With this engine, the E-Class can sprint to 60 mph in 4.9 seconds. The inline-six engine is a major upgrade over the base four-cylinder, bringing better acceleration and improved passing power on the highway.

With the death of the AMG E 63 S, the AMG E 53 becomes the top dog for 2022. It features a tuned version of the six-cylinder engine for up to 429 hp and 384 lb-ft of torque. This engine brings a zero-to-60 mph time of 4.4 seconds and a more aggressive sound.

Exquisitely Opulent Cabin. With elegant lines, beautiful details, and incredibly comfortable seats, the E-Class sets the benchmark for the midsize segment. The E-Class remains hushed at high speeds, resulting in a tranquil interior. Mercedes offers some of the best interiors on the market and the E-Class follows the trend.

Unlike other midsize cars, the E-Class offers seating for up to seven people in the wagon body style thanks to two rear-facing seats in the cargo area. Coupe and cabriolet models seat up to four with the sedan offering seating for up to five. There’s a competitive amount of space in both rows, though the rear seats lack the same amount of legroom as others in the class.

Thanks to the available wagon body style, the E-Class offers a generous cargo area with up to 64 cubic feet of cargo space. The other body styles come up short on the cargo front. The convertible has 9.5 cubic feet of cargo space, the coupe offers up to 10 cubic feet of cargo space, and the sedan has 13.1 cubic feet of trunk space.

Technological Marvel. The E-Class was one of the first vehicles in the Mercedes-Benz lineup to feature the automaker’s dual-screen design. The cabin features two 12.3-inch displays that are designed to look like a single unit. Beyond bringing a high-tech design, the E-Class features the brand’s latest tech features, like the highly advanced MBUX infotainment system.

If there’s one downside to the E-Class’ high-tech features, it’s that some of the car’s controls are unintuitive. Mercedes includes a touchpad on the center console that’s tricky to use, while the steering wheel has touch-capacitive controls that require a lot of concentration to use when driving.

Mercedes-Benz offers some advanced safety features as standard equipment on the E-Class, while the rest are available as optional extras. The E-Class has some futuristic safety features like car-to-X communication, which allows the vehicle to send alerts on road conditions or dangers to a central notification system that can then be shared with other cars. Standout safety features include a dashcam, route-based adaptive cruise control, evasive steering assist, active park assist, and active lane change assist.

Final Thoughts. No other midsize car offers the same elegance, technology, and opulence like the Mercedes-Benz E-Class. It’s not nearly as powerful or as sporty as some competitors, but we think the lack of a V8 engine will be a temporary problem. Despite missing an eight-cylinder engine, the E-Class continues to be the benchmark in the segment.

For serious performance, the BMW 5-Series continues to be the top dog. The range-topping M5 CS produces up to 627 hp and can get to 60 mph in 2.6 seconds. The regular 5-Series isn’t nearly as exciting to drive but has a roomy interior, a wide lineup of engines, and high-tech features.

The Genesis G80 is a value-oriented choice in a class that isn’t known for giving consumers a lot for their money. It has a gorgeous design, an optional 375-hp V6 engine, a relaxed ride, and an upscale interior.
