Mercedes has finally unveiled their new lineup so here comes the 2019 Mercedes-Benz E350 model to our doorsteps. This model has been on the bench and waiting for a renewal for a while now. The thing is that Mercedes has been planning to revamp their entire lineup of vehicles. Actually, the massive overhaul that Mercedes was planning was enough to revitalize the whole company. Not that they really needed it to. Nevertheless, the idea was to refresh everything. In other words, to enter into a new period with fresh legs and a completely modern new take to all of the new offers of the brand .
The massive overhaul actually started in 2013 when Mercedes remodel the new S-Class models. Next in line was the rebirth for the C-Class vehicles. They got a new style synonymous to the previous one that the S-Class got. So they revamped the entire lineup in this manner. Finally it came time for the E-Class models to receive their own change. This is going to be the second time in Mercedes history when three sedan versions received a similar redesign. Back in 80s Mercedes did this for the first time in order to bring the brand more likeability. In addition, they wanted to bring it closer to the competition. It was not met with such large success as you would expect it to be. However, the crowds have changed since then and it would be interesting to see how they decide to meet it this time around.
As far as the styling goes, the 2019 Mercedes-Benz E350 will adopt a long, sausage-like style that Audi has introduced with its recent models. It is interesting to see a Mercedes sedan adopt this kind of a look. Nonetheless, it also does seem appropriate for modern times. Moreover, the car also got a new platform and this is something that is going to change the setup of the car as well. Of course, the interior has been completely reshaped and updated. The E-Class models also got an entirely new line of engines. However, not all of them are going to be featured in the US. But the E350 will be appropriately managed in the drive-train department.
As far as things go, the new line of E-Class models is going to start with the E350 one which we see as the appropriate fit to come out first. There are some new emerging details that have come about the release date and the price of the car. Therefore, we bring it all to you in this review.
What are the News about the Release Date of the 2019 Mercedes-Benz E350?
As we have recently learned, the 2019 Mercedes-Benz E350 is probably going to appear within the coming year. The model has been showcased at the recent Detroit Auto Show. So, we have seen the vehicle in his fullest glory and we have to confess that we like what we see. The model does pose some interesting features which will seem like a nice new addition to the car. The vehicle will be available for sale somewhere in the start or middle of the year. The fans are eager to see this one role out and the vehicle will probably be a great new addition to the Mercedes lineup. Although a third sedan does not seem like a great new idea at first, we have to wait and see what comes out of it. One of the three will certainly emerge on the top.
2019 Mercedes-Benz E350 Price
The price list for the 2019 Mercedes-Benz E350 car has already been disclosed. The model will be on the market in the coming year so the price listings came earlier than expected. It will be on the market for a price of $52,150 to start. At the same time, the 4Matic version will be priced a little bit higher at $54,650. All in all, the price of this model is going to be a bit higher than for the previous one.
The reason for this is the slew of new changes that come with the new model. The vehicle will add a number of new and featured changes which will revamp this model. In addition, this will affect the entire lineup of cars which we have already mentioned. Mercedes might pull a very good move with their new design language. Nevertheless, it still remains for us to see how much it will affect the sales and how well they decide to market them. All in all, the future is still too far away and we will get to see what the company decides to do here.
The New Look of the 2019 Mercedes-Benz E350
Generally speaking, the 2019 Mercedes-Benz E350 will resemble the new line of Mercedes sedan models. The E-Class models look like bigger C-Class ones or smaller S-Class models. So if you ignore the size of the car you get a pretty similar front and rear fascia. Even the profile is similar as they all have similar character line and a swooping belt-line. But there are some differences which differentiate the E350 from other ones. The headlamps have a different shape and a different clustered the LED stripes go a little bit towards the hood. The A-shape bumper is available for other models as well. Yet, this one will be a little bit different compared to the other versions.
The rear end sees some smaller taillights but they have decided to use the same cluster as in the C-Class models. The trunk lid is also unique for this car. Furthermore, the chrome trim placed above the license plate is also unique here. The apron is probably the only completely unique part for the E350 as it differs very much compare to any of the other S-Class and C-Class models.
The side view of the car displays a very cohesive design for the car. But the front and the back ends of the car are both raked at identical angles as the other Mercedes sedans are. Additionally, the roof line is also the same. The only difference is that the C-pillar is going to be thicker. The rear door is longer as well as the windscreen, which makes the car look a bit spottier in appearance. The upper characters line goes underneath the front door handles and slopes down further towards the rear fenders. And the lower character line is going to be more subtle in this design.
Interior Setup for the 2019 Mercedes-Benz E350
The interior of the 2019 Mercedes-Benz E350 is going to be based on the S-Class version. But this does not come as a surprise. In fact, we are welcoming the change as this is one of the best cabins ever made in the segment. The dashboard is going to transfer the organic design. In addition, we predict the same kind of a touchscreen placed in the middle. The center stack and the console will have a new clean and elegant design which will fulfill the overall look.
Nevertheless, all of the entry E-Class models will now get a new instrument cluster which includes analogue dials and a seven-inch screen placed in between. The steering wheel is also updated and will get new touch sensitive buttons which can be used to detect horizontal and vertical swipes. This will be the first time a company used such thing in the automotive industry. The infotainment system will now only be accessible through the use of your thumbs only. This will help to improve safety as you do not have to use up your hands too much.
The model will also include a Linguatronic voice control system along with a Command rotary dial and energy-saving LEDs for interior lighting. It will have 64 colors that you can choose from and customize your interior. Finally, the comfort of the car is going to be addressed. It will come with the added high-grade leathers and wood inserts that are going to upgrade the seats and make things a lot comfortable. To sum up, the comfort is not going to be an issue here. We are once again in for a very nice looking and a comfortable interior.
For now the newly arriving 2019 Mercedes-Benz E350 is going to have only one engine available under its hood. This is going to be the 2.0-liter four-banger which is able to produce 241 horsepower and 273 pound-feet of torque. The drive-train is matted to a 9G-Tronic nine-speed automatic transmission which is offered as standard. But you can additionally use the all-wheel-drive 4MATIC system that you can pick as optional. This will probably not be the only variant as we expect that they add some other optional ones further down the line.
0-60 mph and Top Speed
Based on the current capability of the 2019 Mercedes-Benz E350 engine, the model is going to be capable of having a standard acceleration rating. The model is probably going to speed up to 60 mph from 0 in about 6.5 seconds while its top speed is at 155 mph. In general, this is pretty standard for a luxury car.
What is the Fuel Economy of the 2019 Mercedes-Benz E350?
Based on the latest estimations, the 2019 Mercedes-Benz E350 is going to have the same fuel consumption ratings as before. Being that it will only have one engine this time, some improvements may come later. However, it still remains highly unlikely for that to happen. Most likely, the consumption in the city will probably be 22 mpg, on the highway 30 mpg while the combined rating will amount to 25 mpg.
The Size of the 2019 Mercedes-Benz E350
There have been no news that the model is going to change the size of the 2019 Mercedes-Benz E350. The vehicle is staying the same for now and the updates in the size department have not happen recently. So there has been no need to do it ever since. The model is enjoying a pretty decent setup this way. Additionally, the vehicle will still have enough interior roominess and comfort inside. The car is 190.0 inches long and will have a wheelbase of 113.1 inches. The height is 56.3 inches while the width is 73.2 inches. Also the curb weight is somewhere between 4200-4300 lb and is yet to be officially determined.
Safety Equipment and Technology
The 2019 Mercedes-Benz E350 will have a lot of safety technology like any modern and luxurious car from the segment. You can find the necessary airbags all over the area and the model will also provide various driver assistance features. But the newest additions here are the Drive Pilot, the Steering Pilot, a Speed Limit Pilot which are the latest technological boosts that Mercedes is adding in its vehicles. However, these features are only going to be available with the Driver Assistance Package Plus.
Furthermore, the vehicle will also add Active Brake Assist, Remote Parking Pilot and Attention Assist. Also, we saved the best for last and that is integrating the world’s first Car-to-X solution. With the help of other vehicles and drivers you will be able to see what lies ahead of you on the road and that way determine if there are any dangers waiting for you.
Rivaling Models in the Segment
The competition that the 2019 Mercedes-Benz E350 will need to face is going to have the same set of established cars. These models are pretty advanced. Therefore the segment where Mercedes is competing in is never an easy one. The German competitors are already used to getting one over on each other. This is the game that they have played for a long time now. This time they are continuing to do the same and we are going to see the same kind of tactics pulled. The models that are going to compete here include Audi A6 and BMW 5 Series. This is a familiar company for the E350 to face as the models are very familiar. Yet, there have not been any special updates for them so the newest Mercedes might have an advantage. We shall have to see if the newest sedan works well in the segment.
