The New E: 2010 Mercedes-Benz E550 Full Test by Edmunds
FULL MERCEDES E550 ARTICLE @ INSIDELINE.COM:
Here's the biggest difference between the 2010 Mercedes-Benz E550 and the 2009 Mercedes-Benz E550: The 2010 costs $5,400 less.
Usually, we save money matters for the end of a Mercedes E-Class road test. First we tell you that it has a perfectly relaxing ride quality and a smooth V8 with an indiscreet amount of torque. Then we describe a down-to-business cabin dominated by leather, wood and COMAND. Finally, though, we have to talk about money, and, well, Benz has a well-earned reputation for pricing its sedans higher than everybody else.
But this time it's different. When the 2010 Mercedes-Benz E550 goes on sale in June, its $57,175 base price will land it smack in the middle of the V8 midsize luxury sedan class. It's also cheaper than anything else coming out of Germany.
2010 Mercedes E-Class Sedan
The previous model sold over a million times, now the new generation of the Mercedes E-Class is ready to roll. The popular business sedan comes with many improvements, especially regarding its electronic high-tech systems. The design has been revamped, and new eniges make for a dramatic increase in efficiency.

2010 Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG Rumbles Around the 'Ring
SEE MORE SPY VIDEOS:
Meaner and greener — that's the new objective of AMG. The tuning arm of Mercedes-Benz is rapidly approaching its peak in terms of horsepower, so cleaning up emissions while maintaining performance is the key for the future. This 2010 Mercedes-Benz E63 AMG spotted testing on the Nürburgring could be the first of AMG's new green machines.
Mercedes-Benz officials have gone on record saying that all of the company's future engines will be turbocharged, so it's likely that AMG will follow suit. With that in mind, this sedan might not be an E63 at all, as the addition of one turbo (or maybe two) would likely mean a smaller-displacement engine. Either way, there will be at least 500 hp and a healthy amount of low-end torque to ensure that this super sedan can keep pace with its German rivals.
Like the other E-Class sedan prototypes we've seen before, this test mule reveals only evolutionary changes to the overall shape of the midsize sedan. A redesigned set of headlights is the most dramatic change, but this AMG version also gets a deeper airdam with a pair of brake-cooling ducts at each front corner. They feed air to a serious-looking set of drilled rotors fitted with oversize calipers.
There's not much of a body kit, and the rear fascia shows only minor changes compared to the current model. And like almost all AMG models, there are quad tailpipes poking out from the relatively clean rear fascia. It's a tame-looking setup, but the sound coming from the four pipes proved to be pure AMG as this sedan circled the Nürburgring.
The public debut of the standard Mercedes-Benz E-Class isn't expected until early next year, so you probably won't see the 2010 E63 AMG until late 2009 at the earliest.
Mercedes Benz C-class W203 Development
The second generation C-Class was introduced in 2000, with a sportier look than the previous generations, with a steeper front-end and shorter rear-end. The styling cues were similar to that of the W220 S-Class. The sedan debuted with a range of straight-four and V6 gasoline engines and straight-four and straight-five Diesels. Most of the engines were carried over from the W202, but the C 320 was exclusive, offering 218 hp, also the C240 now had 2597 cc but output was unchanged at 170 hp. The diesels now featured common rail direct injection and variable geometry turbochargers. Six-speed manual gearboxes were now standard for nearly the entire range (except the C320 and C 270 CDI). For the first time, the number designations were no longer equivalent to the engine displacement, more specifically in the C 180 (2.0 L), C 240 (2.6 L) and C 200 CDI (2.2 L).
In 2001, Mercedes increased the range, with the introduction of the new T-Modell station wagon and Sportcoupé. The Sportcoupé was a three-door liftback made to counter the BMW Compact, but like its competitor, it proved unpopular with the younger buyers it was targeted towards, due to high prices compared to the lower entry-level models it was competing against, and unfavorable exchange rates. Although removed from the North American lineup in 2005, it continued on sale in other markets. From October 2000 until 2007, a total of 230,000 Sportcoupés were built in the Bremen factory and in Brazil. In Canada, it was replaced by the Mercedes-Benz B-Class. A new family of supercharged four cylinder engines, dubbed M271, also debuted. All of them used the same 1.8 L engine, with different designations according to horsepower levels, including a version powered by natural gas. The 193 PS(142 kW/190 hp) C 230K was initially available only in the Sportcoupé. 4MATIC four wheel drive versions were also offered for the C 240 and C 320.
The C-Class was refreshed in early 2004. In this year, the interior styling was changed in all three body styles. Different taillights were added to the Sportcoupé and several all-new M272 and OM642 V6 engines were introduced later in the year. These were available in both petrol and diesel configuration, ranging between 2.5 L and 3.5 L, and the three-valve twin spark design was replaced by the more standard four-valve design, now with variable valve timing. The C 350 could now reach 272 PS (200 kW/268 hp), while the C 320 CDI was good for 224 PS (165 kW/221 hp). In addition, these engines also received the new seven-speed 7G-Tronic automatic transmission as optional, the diesel four cylinder's power was slightly increased, and a more economical naturally-aspirated 1.8 L (C 160) was added to the Sportcoupé lineup.
The C-Class is arguably one of the most popular automobiles in its class in many of the European markets. The second generation was for a long time after its release the second most popular new car in the German market, right after the Volkswagen Golf, and in 2002 it achieved success in the field of safety by scoring the maximum five stars in a EuroNCAP crash test. In the United States, the C-Class automobiles are the least expensive of the Mercedes-Benz lineup as the A-Class was not imported there. However the W203 C-Class did acquire a poor reputation for reliability compared to other Mercedes-Benz models, an area which was targeted for improvement in the replacement model.
The last W203 C-Class sedan was produced on December 14, 2006 at the Sindelfingen plant, after almost 630,000 units of the sedan were produced.
By the revision of the C-Class in 2005, C 32 AMG was also replaced, giving way to a new 5.5 L naturally-aspirated V8-powered C 55 AMG. This was an evolution of the V8 engine found in the previous E-Class, with power raised to 367 PS (270 kW/362 hp) at 5750 rpm and torque climbing to 510 Nm (376 ft•lbf) at 4000 rpm. Unlike the less-powerful V6s and V8s in the rest of the Mercedes-Benz lineup, it continues to use Speedshift five-speed automatic. Though maximum speed is still limited to 250 km/h (155 mph) and 4.9 seconds from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) is not improved, this model is considered the sportiest AMG model in the C-Class history before the recent release of the W204 (third generation) C63 AMG.
