2021 Mercedes-Benz E-Class LWB launched. Prices start at INR 63.60 lakh

Mercedes-Benz has launched the E-Class long-wheelbase facelift in India today, with prices starting from INR 63.60 lakh and going up to INR 80.90 lakh (ex-showroom).

The updates on the Mercedes E-Class LWB facelift bring it more in line with the new S-Class and the C-Class. The face has been revised with new sleeker headlamps and a new bumper. It also gets a wider three-slat chrome grille and chrome trim for the fog lamp inserts. At the rear, the E-Class has been updated with new slimmer horizontal tail lamps – much like the new S-Class – along with a new bumper design. The E-Class facelift also gets new alloy wheel designs.

The new E-Class E 350d AMG-line variant gets a unique diamond-studded front grille, sportier 18-inch alloy wheels, AMG design front and rear bumpers, and a special beige-tropez blue interior upholstery. The paint colours available on the E-Class LWB facelift are Polar White, Obsidian Black, High-Tech Silver and Mojave Silver. Additionally, Selenite Grey and Designo Hyacinth Red are also available, but only for a limited time.

There are not as many updates to the interior of the E-Class LWB facelift as there are to the outside in terms of design. In terms of features, the top-spec E 350d AMG Line is equipped with Mercedes’ latest MBUX software for the infotainment system, Android Auto and Apple CarPlay connectivity, Mercedes’ Meconnect with Alexa and Google home, voice commands, a 590W Burmester sound system, reclining rear seats, three-zone automatic climate control, two wireless phone chargers, a panoramic sunroof, full leather upholstery, air suspension, soft-close doors and LED headlamps and tail-lamps.

The 2021 E-Class long-wheelbase facelift carries forward the same set of engine options as the outgoing car. These include a 197hp, 2.0-litre, four-cylinder turbo-petrol in the E 200; a 194hp, 2.0-litre four-cylinder diesel in the E 200d; and a 3.0-litre, straight-six diesel in the top-spec E 350d that’s been tuned up to deliver 286hp. All engines are paired to a 9-speed torque converter automatic gearbox as standard.

Safety-wise, the E-Class long wheelbase facelift E 350d gets seven airbags, ABS with EBD and brake assist, traction control, ESP, ISOFIX child-seat mounts, tyre pressure monitoring system, front and rear parking sensors, and a 360-degree parking camera.
