    Insideline Track Test of the 2011 W212 E350 Bluetec

    Diesel performance is something we think is going to gain significant ground over the next few years. With an ever increasing focus on efficiency and going "green" we think the American public will embrace diesels like never before. In the European market, diesels already account for the majority of the sales for BMW and Mercedes-Benz. These motors are slow to make their way over but cars like the E350 Bluetec show that diesels have come a long way. The Benz diesel is not quite as quick as the competition but still a great offering. Results below:
