Mercedes-Benz launched the new E-Class LWB (Long Wheelbase) in India in March this year and was offered in two variants, namely; E200 petrol priced at Rs 56.7 lakh and the E350 diesel version at Rs 70.15 lakh, ex-showroom, Delhi. Now, the luxury car manufacturer will add another diesel variant to its lineup, the E220d that will be launched on 2nd June, next month.
The new Mercedes-Benz E-Class E220d will have a smaller displacement engine, the new 2.0 litre, four-cylinder turbocharged diesel unit. The new engine will develop 187 hp of maximum power and 400 Nm of peak torque and will be mated to a nine-speed automatic gearbox. Mercedes-Benz will also equip the new variants with an Air Body Control self-levelling suspension that uses adaptive damping technology for improved ride comfort and vehicle driving dynamics, similar to other variants.
Besides the new diesel engine, the E220d variant will be the same as that of the other petrol and diesel engine. It will measure 5,063 mm in length, resulting in more space inside the cabin, especially at the rear. The new E220d will get a 12.3-inch infotainment system with Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. The system will also feature COMAND ONLINE and a Burmester 3D-surround sound system that has been co-developed by Mercedes-Benz and Burmester.
The rear passengers will have seats with a memory function that can save up to three seating positions and can recline up to 37 degrees. The steering wheels will feature touch controls for navigation, command and audio system. The driver can also choose between different driving modes, Eco, Comfort, Sports, Sports+.
