Seems US News & World Report is not too fond of e60s.

Its only because that they don't have enough review to rate our beloved E60
This is what the website says...

"Our rankings are based on analysis of third party reviews. Sometimes, we are unable to find enough reviews to publish a definitive ranking. Please check back later, as we are constantly updating our reviews"

Interesting....

From: http://usnews.rankingsandreviews.com/cars-...ss/Performance/ (Rank #1)

"Although power and handling are both adequate, the 2009 Mercedes-Benz E-Class doesn't seem to have the balance and tossability of the BMW 5 Series or Jaguar XF."

"All E-Class models handle with grippy assurance and modest body lean. Steering feel is accurate, and straight-line stability is excellent. However, they're not as nimble as rival 5-Series BMWs, and some testers find them slightly ponderous in fast corners. "

I'm assuming that BMW does NOT advertise in US News & World Report! Perhaps that is why the oversight occured....money talks!
