Sleeper Benz We wouldn't consider the petrol 4 cylinder in a car of this weight. They don't offer the diesels stateside. As far as low responses here, maybe these W213's are so reliable that very few have problems to report!

On a side note:
Just got the April Consumer Reports magazine and the 2019 S550 ranked #1 and is CR recommended in the Ultra luxury category. interesting.

Totally agree, though Iím not sure how much of that is to blame on the transmission. My wife has a 2015 GLA and I hate driving it. Accelerating from a dead stop is like driving a manual with a bad clutch.

Super weird. Also looks like the TT DELA 35 never made it into the E class.

But at least in the US, MB made the switch from the normally aspirated DELA 35 to the twin-turbo DELA 30 as part of the W213 model launch in MY2017. Mine is a MY2017 with a delivery date of November 2016 and it has the DELA 30.

I find the drift away from actual displacement numbers to ďas powerful asĒ displacement numbers annoying. BMW is doing it too. I guess all the car makers are embarrassed of the small displacement engines.
