E-class is the first to get Merc's new range of styling and under-the-skin upgrades
26 February 2010

Mercedes has launched a new Sport pack for the E-class, designed to bridge the gap between its standard range and AMG models.

The MercedesSport range will be launched at the Geneva motor show next week and will find its way onto other Mercedes models after the E-class.

All E-class models can be order with the MercedesSport range, which offer several mechanical upgrades, as well as styling modifications.

Under the skin, the options include a sports suspension kit, which features stiffer dampers, transverse stabilisers and shorter springs to lower the suspension by up to 15mm. A sports brake system is also offered.

Exterior styling upgrades include roof and rear spoilers, a rear diffuser and black 18-inch alloys. Inside, stainless steel pedals and sills, new leather steering wheel trim and floor mats featuring the MercedesSport logo are offered.

Full details, including a launch date for the packages, will be revealed at Geneva.

Our Verdict

Mercedes-Benz E-Class
The E-class more than lives up to traditional Mercedes values

The E-Class is a refined and relaxing return to old Mercedes qualities

Sounds like Mercedes-Benz's answer to Audi's S-Line, BMW's M Sport and VW's R-Line trim levels/packages. Mercedes should do well with this.

Having read all of your articles about the E Class, I would assume the last thing the E Class needs is sports suspension as this will ruin the already not perfect ride.

Name is a bit confusing, as the top trim level for the E-Class has always been Sport, so creating an additional trim/ option pack called MercedesSport dosen't make much sense to me.
