This is not your father’s gas-guzzling 450SEL. Mercedes-Benz have promised a real fuel efficient version of its E-Class sedan and the German automaker has finally delivered. The new E250 Bluetec diesel gets 45 miles per gallon on the highway, a good bit better than 39 mpg highway MB said when the E250 BlueTEC concept sedan debuted in 2009 New York Auto Show.
The oil-burning E250 also get 28 mpg city (the same as the concept of 2009) and will be “best in class” fuel efficiency for a midsize luxury sedan. With a highway mileage figure is just three miles per gallon less than the Toyota Prius, “best” is really appropriate. In addition, MB talk about “Lanchester balance shafts,” and “low-friction roller bearings” as a way to say that diesel will also be smooth as silk in addition to Thrifty on oil.
The eighth generation of the E-class starts at $ 53,900, and combines fuel efficiency with sportiness in a diesel engine that produces 195 horsepower and 369 lb-ft of torque at the same time, with its seven-speed transmission, 4Matic to reduce fuel consumption. Heck, even the four-wheel drive version of Bluetec a 27/42 mpg split.
