It’s out with the old, and in with the new, as Mercedes-Benz refreshes the E-Class line-up by replacing the E400 with the mighty E450. Previously the king of the castle, the E400 set the yardstick for luxury with a silky engine, delicate balance, smooth transmission and a swathe of kit. With such impossibly high standards, it might seem like an uphill task trying to better what was already on offer. Cast your doubts aside however, as the E450 delivers in spades. Sporting an upgraded 3L twin-turbo V6 engine, this executive saloon can serve a thunderous 270kW and 500Nm. It’s enough to make you question whether you’re instead at the helm of a sports car, but the only clarification you’ll need comes in the form of the glorious interior that is befitting of only the most deluxe vehicles on the road. Mercedes-Benz has fit the E450 with 4MATIC all-wheel drive and air suspension, ensuring fabulous ride comfort. It’s a unit that glides along almost in harmony with every undulation in the road, and the seats provide magnificent leg and back support. As well as a cavernous feel to the interior, this is a sedan built to the highest quality, incorporating advanced driver aids and safety mechanisms that will set the benchmark for years to come. That yardstick mentioned above? It’s now sitting just a little bit higher.
