First Drive Q&A: 2010 Mercedes E-Class
Where does the new E-Class fall within the Mercedes-Benz lineup?There are a number of ways to answer that question. If you look at it in terms of cars Mercedes is bringing to market in 2009, according to them it is "the most important launch for Mercedes-Benz this year." Considering they have sold 12 million of its predecessors over 62 years, you can understand why. That said, the answer you are probably looking for is that this vehicle slots between the entry point into the Mercedes lineup, the C-Class, and the "I'm not just a client, I'm also the president" S-Class, which sits at the other end of the offering.
