The Mercedes-Benz E-Class already has been a popular choice for chauffeured transportation in Europe, and now the new and lean 2014 model is making its way into markets across the pond in the U.S. The vehicle offers many benefits for operators. The 2.1-liter, I-4, bi-turbo diesel engine delivers a powerful 195 hp. and 369 lb.-ft. of torque, and has an economical gas mileage to keep operating costs down. But the small engine doesn’t lack in power, and has a lot of get-up-and-go when you step on the accelerator.

Inside, the interior is what you would expect from Mercedes-Benz, top-of-the-line upholstery and trim paneling along with iconic dashboard clock and LCD screen for navigation, web browsing and radio. The back seat provides ample leg room, and the 15.9 cu.ft. trunk can handle luggage for two.

LCT got a chance to test drive the vehicle to go along with its review article that printed this June. Editor Martin Romjue, web producer David Broyles, and senior editor Tim Crowley, shot this footage during a quick trip around the Los Angeles beach cities to give you a firsthand look at the vehicle.

The rear seat offers 38.2 in. of headroom, 35.8 in. of legroom, and 56.9 in. of shoulder room, enough to comfortably fit two passengers more than six feet in height.

The Mercedes-Benz E250 BlueTec has a triple view rear, forward, and above camera angle displayed on the LCD screen in the dash when backing up, which gives the chauffeur a 360-degree view of the entire vehicle, so no accidental bumps or fender benders occur even in the tightest parking spaces.
