    I’m 43 years old and have been a loyal customer for over 20 years. I’ve owned one A, two Es, one S, one GLA, one GLE, and one SL. Let me tell you, after reviewing the newly remodeled S and E class, what the hell... I’ve never been so disappointed!

    This facelift model looks better, the interior is very nice. The back taillights could have been designed better.

    Mercedes' quality is unquestionable. But the car looks so basic for the price. If I were in the market I'd probably get the year before, or wait for a redesign.


    I don't care if any one love or hate this car. I just love the new design which is I going to buy it

    What’s the deal with the massage seats? I’ve contacted two UK Mercedes dealers and both have said the E class doesn’t come with massage seats? It’s really hard to find what option would have massage. The uk site lists it as having massage under tech, but doesn’t say what option, Matt says it has it on this and the coupe video... are the staff in the dealerships just terrible with product knowledge, or has the UK spec not allowed massage seats?

    I've read this new type E class is for passive gays? I was doubting that, but then you made the comparison with the Hugo Boss suit guy... Now i am confused...

    I have a hard time telling between the c-class and e-class. It's a shame really. The older e-class had presence, commanded respect from a mile a way.

    The front grille is the best, compare its German rival.

    Looks like the designers were drunk or just don't care. Ugly car that's a kick in the nuts for Mercedes. Wheres that Signature Chrome Grille that Bespoke of Class, Style and Elegance. This car looks like it was scrapped together in or at a Salvage Yard. Truly sad.

    I just sold my E series and I think they did a great upgrade to the interior with the new version I’m not so keen on the exterior but overall it was a great car and the best part trouble free with a little over 100,000 miles. I did upgrade to a GLE 350 diesel which I thoroughly enjoyed it very comfortable

    All I can say is, E-Class 2003 to 2008.....when Mercedes still had designers who could design. Now they just design Korean cars, something like a branch from Kia.

    LOL.. is this a new Toyota Camry model?..seriously, the Germans lost their marbles.. compare to the new Genesis, the E class looks much inferior..

    Just talk and act with little sophistication when you review a merc - its not a Range rover you are reviewing, enney !

    😬I had 3 S Class W222 The last one is today 15.10.2020 with Mercedes Benz of Colindale London Mr Adam Bird decides that although my vehicle is in full warranty... they won’t check all the faults that the car has only the window fault For all the others I have to pay 120£ each🙄

  • ciawarhater

    also like Hugo Boss -Mercedes was favourite brand of the Nazis in WW2

  • SUBZ

    Hugo Boss wasnt a good comparison. Hugo Boss used to make SS uniform for the Nazi's

    07:13 it actually got the command right, if you listen carefully you´ll realise.

  • KnipSlip

    I was wondering why the E has gotten worse. But then he summed it up nicely at the beginning of the video! The car is mostly used as TAXI! I bet Mercedes is aware of that as well. It went from luxury saloon to TAXI. I guess the youth they tried to attract has gone slightly the wrong direction!

  • cyigen85

    Almost everything is beautiful on this car. Really liking the front, but the rear end of the car( the rear lights) looks so cheap. The old e class had better rear end.

  • J.H.G

    My favorite modern E class was between 2014-2016. I have one in mint condition in grey metallic and it’s and amazing car. Same goes the the S class in those years. The exterior after 2016 went downhill big time. Fake exhaust are a deal breaker

    Exterior looks horrible, current generation looks significantly better hopefully this exterior design system for MB has a VERY short run. Interior is rather good still not sold on the tablet style dash, the full digital upgrade to cockpit display and improved infotainment display sufficed sich as on 2019 and 2020 models. Just out of curiosity does anyone like the new design system?

  • Blackfield

    Again with the cheap plastic handle?? I mean it's like Mercedes isn't even listening to you Matt, preposterous!

  • KD xxx

    Just bought an E class 2012 model and I have fell in love with it. This new one is just bling, with most of the tech being adopted from the older models. It is a stunning car to drive and I love it!
