Mercedes-Benz launches new E-Class Car

Tue 28 Feb 2017, 13:43:47
German luxury automaker Mercedes-Benz launched on Tuesday the newest edition of the E-Class at Rs 56.15 lakh for the E200 variant and Rs Rs 69.47 lakh for the E350d variant (ex-showroom Mumbai). This is the fifth generation of the executive sedan in the country.
The German auto major has directly launched a long-wheelbase version of the E-Class in India, given the success that the E-Class has so far enjoyed, grabbing 34% of Mercedes-Benz’s sales in the country. This version was developed especially for markets like China, but the automaker has brought it to India, beating BMW in the race. What’s more? This is not an imported “launch edition”, but is being rolled out of the Chakan plant near Pune.
The new E-Class was launched in two variants– E200 and E350d, powered by either a 2-litre petrol or a 3-litre diesel engine, mated to a 9G-tronic gearbox.At the launch, Mercedes-Benz India MD Roland Folger said, “India is a chauffeur-driven country. Though we initially came with a



shorter wheelbase, the decision to launch the longer car was a no-brainer.”
The new E-Class is 185mm longer than the outgoing version, so its wheelbase has increased by 205mm, making it a really spacious executive sedan. Mercedes-Benz has offered reclining seats, adjustable from the chauffeur’s end, 64 shades of ambient lighting and a 12.3-inch touchscreen infotainment system with Android Auto, Apple CarPlay and a 13-speaker, 590 watt Burmester music system. Add to it a panoramic sunroof,and you don’t miss much of the pleasure of an S-Class.
The carmaker also introduced two “Star Ease” service packages starting at Rs 64,700 for petrol variant for and Rs 94,400 for diesel variant for a period of two years.
The new E-Class comes with advanced safety features like park-assist, 360-degree aerial-view cameras, parking sensors and seven airbags. The E350d version can also be raised by up to 25mm, thanks to adaptive suspension system with variable damping.
