Since its last full redesign in 2010, the E-Class has improved in several graduated steps. This year's round of changes is the most dramatic yet, bringing in better fuel economy and better performance, more safety technology, and a cleaner look that drops some of the furrowed brows of the past three years. Altogether, it's right up against the Audi A6 and BMW 5-Series as well as the Infiniti Q70 and Cadillac CTS.

The E-Class' unmistakable German presence gets softened considerably this year, massaging out the wrinkles from an overzealous attempt to give it more masculine character. That's all been ironed out, and though the styling changes for the 2014 E-Class are subtle, they make a significant impact. The front end gets a smoother and more open bumper, a new hood, and a choice of two different grilles. For the first time in the E-Class range (it's been practice with the C-Class for more than a few years), Luxury models wear a three-bar grille and a star on the hood, while Sport models get the star integrated in the grille itself. The other major design changes include the clean-up of the rear quarter panels, now without the flared and creased look of the last four model years, and LED running lights and taillamps with a signature night-time look. It's less busy--maybe less interesting to some--and the new design is undoubtedly sleeker and more elegant.

All E-Class cars now have electric power steering, too. The "Direct Steer" system adapts both the quickness and the weight of the steering across its dynamic range. In practice, it's given engineers a way to beef up the E-Class, and to make it feel more sporty, by adding some heft to the steering feel. There's more razor-sharp quickness with, say, the Lexus GS F-Sport's available rear-steer system, but the E-Class' system feels better than most.

This E-Class comes in Luxury or Sport trim. Softly tuned, the Luxury model has ample body lean and scrubs its 17-inch wheels and tires easily. As a Sport, the E350 is more controlled, thanks to a suspension lowered 15 mm and to bigger 18-inch wheels. Neither removes an iota of polish from the E-Class' demeanor.
All-wheel drive is an option on the E350 sedan, standard on the wagon, and it's only a slight acceleration and fuel-economy penalty. It's now standard on the E550 sedan.

On the E550 sedan, a 4.6-liter V-8 with twin turbochargers and direct injection makes 402 horsepower and 443 pound-feet of torque. The carryover V-8 is a much more evocative performer than the basic six, with top speed rising to 155 mph and with 0-60 mph times falling to 5.2 seconds.

There's more interior room in any E-Class than in models from just a few years ago. The latest editions ride on a wider and longer platform than before, with particularly roomy layouts to be found in the sedan and wagon. They're on par with the BMW 5-Series by the spec sheet, visually a little more spacious, and much more open than, say, the Jaguar XF.
