The 2009 Mercedes-Benz E-Class is available in both sedan and wagon body styles. Trim levels include the E320 Bluetec (sedan only), E350 (sedan and wagon), E550 (sedan only) and the high-performance E63 AMG (sedan and wagon). The E350 and E550 are available with 4Matic all-wheel drive.
The E320 Bluetec comes standard with 16-inch wheels, a sunroof, 10-way power front seats with memory settings, dual-zone automatic climate control, a power tilt/telescoping steering column, the COMAND interface and a Harman Kardon surround-sound audio system with an in-dash six-CD/DVD changer and an auxiliary audio jack. The E350 sedan and wagon are equipped similarly. The E350 sedan can also be equipped with a no-cost Sport Package that includes 18-inch wheels, sport front and rear bumpers, a dual chrome exhaust and a sport steering wheel with paddle shifters. E350 wagons have a power liftgate and a rear-facing two-passenger third-row seat that folds flat. The E550 sedan includes the Sport Package and a semi-active air suspension, leather upholstery and four-zone automatic climate control.
Options for the non-AMG E-Class models are grouped into two packages. The Premium 1 Package adds an iPod interface in the glovebox, heated front seats, satellite radio, HD radio and a new hard-drive-based navigation system that includes 4GB of storage for music. The Premium 2 Package includes all that plus bi-xenon headlights and keyless ignition/entry. Stand-alone options include a panorama sunroof, park assist and, for the sedan, an electronic trunk closer and split-folding rear seats.
The E63 AMG comes equipped similarly to the E550, but adds split-folding rear seats, heated front seats, satellite radio and an array of AMG performance and styling features. An AMG Performance Package exclusive to this model includes distinctive 18-inch alloy wheels, a specially tuned semi-active air suspension, a limited-slip differential and an increased top speed of 186 mph.
