The latest Mercedes-Benz E-Class made its global debut at the Detroit motor show earlier this year, and is already on sale in the UK. The fifth generation of Mercedes' large executive saloon enters the market to fight against the BMW 5 Series, Volvo S90, Audi A6 and Jaguar XF, and is bristling with new technology. Our video tells you everything you need to know.

The interior is an improvement but the vinyl looking cheap wood effect is very Chinese and unacceptable to me. Either do it with some decent veneer or dont do it at all. The self park is nice idea, the rest I dont want. The big screen may or may not be a distraction would need to test drive to check. If the quality is as good as an A6 then they have made progress. The exterior..sorry it does absolutely nothing for me. There is now wow factor, no sit up and take notice - in other words you spend 36K plus to put an anonymous new motor on your drivevway. Have a Benz sign on the front isnt enough

Very nice design, inside and out. The only thing about Benz is that they love to add that silly foot-brake pedal which I hope this E class dont have.

Bye bye boring BMW, am going to shift to Benz soon :)

  •  Kia Optima PHEV
    First Drive
    25 August 2016
    Plug-in hybrid Optima is a practical, tax-efficient PHEV that undercuts rivals and fulfils its main remit well, but keen drivers need not apply
  • Kia Optima Sportwagon
    First Drive
    25 August 2016
    New Kia estate looks the part, has good space and handles tidly, but its engine's flexibility and refinement let it down
  • Lamborghini Huracán LP610-4 Spyder
    First Drive
    24 August 2016
    Awful driving position aside, drop-top Huracán handles UK roads well. It's more dynamically rounded than its rangemates, but lacks rivals' handling bite
  • Porsche Panamera 4S Diesel
    First Drive
    23 August 2016
    Its predecessor may have been a bit limp, but the Porsche Panamera 4S Diesel is crushingly rapid and suitably luxurious

    Can the best sports coupé of the decade absorb a contentious new engine?
