2019 Redesigned steering wheel
2019 E 450 trim replaces E 400 and adds more power.
Under the hood, the E450 has a 3-liter Bi-turbo V6 that is putting out 362-horses and an impressive 369-pound feet of torque. It is hooked to a 9-speed automatic with paddle shifters and my review vehicle is the 4Matic, which means it is full-time all-wheel drive, but it also comes rear-wheel drive only.
The exterior looks of the E450 are stunning, especially with the 19” AMG wheels, but I find the convertible top to be most impressive. Most soft tops have visible bows on the exterior, but this one is smooth and is 3-layers thick for sound reduction and long-term wear. It will go up and down in 21-seconds at speeds up to 31-miles per hour. There is a surprising amount of trunk space for a retractable convertible top, and a built-in partition shows you how much cargo you can load when you lower the top.
Like most Benz models, the E450 has an exceptional interior with attractive stitching and this one has light brown elm wood across the dash and around the center console. As soon as you open the door, you’ll see this is a real 4-seater convertible with rear bucket seats. Many convertibles won’t fit two adults in the back seat, but this one will, and Mercedes makes it easy to get in the back with electric sliding front seats.
As you sit behind the multi-function steering wheel with controls, you see two extremely vivid 12.3” screens. Right in front of you are the gauges and driver info center, then in the middle of the dash is the COMAND infotainment screen. This is where you operate the entertainment, navigation, comfort and convenience features, and customizable vehicle settings.
This is absolutely NO smoking vehicle.
