To judge, that speed is not quick, particularly when the Audi and BMW come with 6-cylinder engines which can crank out around 40 more horsepower each and are much speedier than the E350. However, when it comes to the fuel efficiency, the E350 shows a good performance with 17 mpg on city roads and 24 mpg on the highway, for the rear-wheel-drive version.
In general, the 2010 Mercedes-Benz E350 4matic offers a nice ride and receives good feedback in both wheel control and steering weight. The steering is not very much present, obviously, but the car reacts very well to the inputs, and is very neutral in its habits.

7. Mercedes-Benz E350 2010 review: Conclusion
In a comparison, the Jaguar X and the BMW 535i may be stronger and have a price tag of several thousand dollars higher. In driving experience, the Bimmer may be heftier and the XF may be quieter. But the truth is that none of them can match what the supercilious three-pointed star can deliver. Mercedes-Benz convincingly beat these cars, apart from the V6 model which prevent the Mercedes-Benz E350 2010 from becoming the perfect mid-size sedan. For the final words, we hope that all we have mentioned before in our Mercedes-Benz E350 2010 review is sufficient for you to get a better understanding of this excellent sedan and drive home a three-pointed star car with your pride.
