3. 2015 Mercedes-Benz E250 BlueTEC
The E-Class is one of those cars that seems to always come up in the discussion of luxury sedans. Sure, there are no flashy lines, and outside of the AMG models, it is a relatively timid performer. However, its luxury for the dollar is almost unrivaled. Combine this luxury with a 2.1-liter diesel engine that delivers 42 mpg on the highway, and you have the next car on our list: the E250 BlueTEC.
Unlike the previous two models, the E250 BlueTEC is far from quick, as it takes nearly eight seconds to clip 60 mph, but its luxury is right up there. Inside you are treated to a whisper-quiet cabin, MB-Tex upholstery, ambient lighting, 14-way power front seats, dual-zone climate control, and a premium audio system. Additionally, there is a options list a mile long that allows you to fully equip this fuel-sipping sedan with all of the latest and greatest features. At a base price of $51,800, the E250 BlueTEC is a bit pricy, but the luxury returned on the dollar combined with the fuel economy makes it worth every penny.
