Mercedes-Benz has finally made the debut details of the E-Class public in the market. According to the luxury carmaker, the new-gen model will mark its global debut on April 25. The new sedan will get several updates over its predecessor. On the appearance front, the redesigned sedan will feature an entirely new design that borrows heavily from the S-Class, with wraparound LED taillights and more pointed LED headlamps. In contrast to the existing model, the character line has been raised and is now visible above the door handles rather than cutting through them. In addition, the roofline slopes more steeply towards the back, giving the car a notch-back appearance. Right now, there is no official confirmation, but the Mercedes-Benz E-Class is anticipated to be launched in both standard and long-wheelbase versions, with the latter being limited to certain areas like China and India. For now, we have a small glimpse of the upcoming sedan ahead of its world debut. So, without further delay, let's know more about it.
New Mercedes-Benz E-Class: Mechanical Details
Although the E-Class's powertrain options are currently unknown, a variety of petrol and diesel engines with mild hybrid technology are anticipated to be available. Several industry reports suggest that Plug-in hybrid variants will be provided for international markets, although the 4.0-litre twin-turbo V8 engine will likely remain standard on AMG-spec models of the next E 63. Moreover, the 3.0-litre six-cylinder diesel engine option will continue to dominate many countries, including India. Additionally, we anticipate seeing petrol and AMG versions as well.
New Mercedes-Benz E-Class: Interior
There is no official update, but the interior of the redesigned sedan will likely feature several improvements on the inside.
A larger 12.9-inch OLED touchscreen infotainment system from the S-Class will be an option, while an 11.9-inch screen from the C-Class is anticipated for the central console. For the front passenger, a third screen will likely be introduced. All of these screens employ the most recent MBUX user interface. This time around, we can anticipate even more comfort and elegance crammed into the second row of the E-Class's rear seats.
New Mercedes-Benz E-Class: Price
Since the introduction of the LWB model, the E-Class has been a leader in the executive luxury sedan market. The BMW 5 Series, the Audi A6, and the Volvo S90 are just a few of the segment's well-liked models that are now for sale. In terms of price, the existing E-Class model's cost starts at Rs 76 lakh (ex-showroom). According to market reports, when the redesigned sedan will launch, most likely in the first half of next year, one can anticipate it to command a premium over the standard version.
