E 250 BlueTec 4Matic Gets Reviewed by Motorweek

The current way to own the cheapest Mercedes-Benz E-Class in the United States right now is the E 250 BlueTec.

Powered by a 2.1-liter, twin-turbocharged four-cylinder oil burner that develops 204 hp (195 bhp) and a not-too-shabby 500 Nm (369 lb ft) of torque, the E 250 BlueTec isn't exactly a slouch on the road.

Taking into account that it sips the same amount of fuel as a mid-size hybrid but with torque to actually move around and not be ashamed of running on batteries and hugging trees (just kidding, you shouldn't feel ashamed), the cheapest E-Class doesn't offer a ride that feels in any way cheap.

Pairing the small but highly-efficient turbodiesel mill under the hood with the active safety given by the 4Matic all-wheel drive system and you should have a winner.

At least this is the conclusion that the mildly-humorous narrated Motorweek video review bellow seems to have about the model after a rather exhaustive test drive that also includes a quarter mile run, a braking test and a slalom test.
