First published: 9th May 2019
There are many things likely to sway your decision when making a purchase, and the recommendations of family, friends or anyone else that you trust, can be a big one. It’s good news for Mercedes-Benz, then, because the E-Class has been named by Britain’s car buyers as Auto Trader’s Most Recommended Car for 2019.

Like all our awards, this category was decided by feedback collated from a survey of more than 60,000 car owners, all of whom rated their car in 16 key areas. That means an Auto Trader New Car Award is a real stamp of approval from people that live with the car day-in, day-out, and it makes each winner a true consumer champion.

Here are just a few of the comments owners made about the E-Class…
  • “Performance, quality, handling. So far there is nothing not to like. This comes from someone who is not easy to please. It’s the best car I have ever owned or driven.”
  • “The car looks stunning and it’s well equipped, with lots of additional features.”
  • “The car has a sleek, sporty appearance. It performs very well for a big, heavy car, while returning surprisingly good fuel economy.”

Our experts are also impressed by the E-Class, and you can see why in our expert review. What’s more, the car has also made our shortlists for both the best saloons and the best executive company cars.

Commenting on the E-Class’ victory in this category, Auto Trader’s road test editor, Ivan Aistrop, said: “It’s not difficult to see why owners would be so keen to point friends and family in the direction of the E-Class. There’s so much to like; he glamourous looks for one thing, the high-quality interior for another, and the relaxed, comfortable and quiet driving experience for another. Then there’s all the technology and safety equipment on board. Who wouldn’t want their loved ones to have a piece of that?”

It was a close-run thing between the E-Class and the two eventual runners-up, the Volkswagen Golf and BMW 5 Series. Will these two rivals be able to go one better next year and take the title in 2020?
