Mercedes-Benz India on Wednesday announced that the 2021 Mercedes-Benz E-Class will hit the roads on March 16. The 2021 Mercedes-Benz E-Class is coming to India as a part of the German automaker’s ongoing product offensive to launch 15 new offerings in the country in 2021. The E-Class has been a part of the Indian luxury market since 1995 and the long-wheelbase version of the car introduced in 2017 further enhanced the sedan’s appeal and now there are close to 46,000 units of the E-Class in the country.
Long wheel base vehicle
The new E-Class is sophisticated, confidently stylish, and sporty. Its design displays hallmark Mercedes-Benz saloon proportions. The elongated bonnet coupled with a coupé-esque roof flowing into a sensual, broad-shouldered tail end creates an exciting silhouette. The powerfully extended vehicle body is characterised by short overhangs, a long wheelbase, large wheels and taut, well-defined flanks displaying a fresh, stylish and dynamic interpretation of the feature line.
Reclining rear seats
The electric rear seats ensure tailored ride comfort. The 3-seat long rear seats include 2 lateral luxury seats. The backrest can be tilted up to 37 degrees, allowing passengers to take a more relaxed angle. The seats come with a luxury headrest which elevates the comfort of the passenger. The memory function can store up to 3 separate positions for each seat, and can be recalled quickly. The memory program includes all seat backrest and headrest adjustment functions. The ergonomically designed switch on the door control panel can be used for intuitive control.
With the DYNAMIC SELECT Controller in the centre console, you can vary your driving experience just as you wish. “Comfort” transmission mode enables a particularly well-balanced style of driving. “ECO” adjusts all parameters for low fuel consumption, the ECO display in the multifunction display supports an efficient driving style, and depending on the engine variant the “gliding function” can be activated. “Sport” features an additionally lowered suspension, taut, sporty damper tuning in each case in conjunction with AIR BODY CONTROL and modified shift points. “Sport+” stands for extremely sporty shifting and damping characteristics. And “Individual” allows the driver to vary individual parameters at will – from the steering and the powertrain to the suspension.
Burmester Surround Sound System (Available with Exclusive)
13 high-performance loudspeakers, a 9-channel digital signal processor (DSP) amplifier with a total power of 590 watts, and an amplifier/loudspeaker system designed for the vehicle to create a superb Burmester® “good sound”. When necessary, can further enhance the impressive hearing experience. The surround sound function produces a virtual surround sound effect from a mono or stereo music signal for optimal spatial effects. The front/rear optimization feature adjusts the sound specifically for the front or rear seats. Thanks to the highly advanced Vehicle Noise Compensation (VNC) technology, regardless of driving noise, excellent sound quality is maintained both on the highway and in the town, ensuring the best possible musical enjoyment. The Burmester® surround sound system combines digital and analog filter components. The systematic use of analog diplexers in the midrange and treble sections ensures a rich, expressive, and natural-looking stereo sound. The 2021 E-Class sedan, which will be locally assembled, promises to be slightly more dynamic and sportier compared to its predecessor. The sedan will also feature the latest-gen MBUX system with the ‘Hey Mercedes’ voice assistant too.
With nine forward gears, the 9G-TRONIC automatic transmission enables efficiency, comfort, and dynamism of an entirely new dimension. Its high efficiency helps to reduce fuel consumption. The larger ratio range allows a reduction in engine speed. Performance remains excellent while ride comfort is enhanced and noise levels are cut. The reduced intervals between the gears lead to faster gear changes and enhanced spontaneity and agility. As the 9G-TRONIC is able to skip individual gears, multiple downshifts are possible for fast and powerful sprints.
Diesel engine – E 220d (Available with Exclusive and Expression)
4-cylinder in-line diesel engine. The OM654 series 4-cylinder diesel engines of the latest generation give a lot but take little. This is thanks to their particularly light, compact design and minimal frictional losses. Significantly less noise and vibrations bring the level of refinement virtually to that of petrol engines.
Note: The E 220d meets BS VI equivalent emission norms
Petrol engine - E 200 (Available with Exclusive and Expression)
The highly advanced engine technology manifests itself in enormous power with a low fuel consumption. One major reason for this is the intelligent combustion system with a combination of direct injection and multi-spark ignition. Demand-controlled ancillary units also increase efficiency.
Note: The E 200 meets BS VI equivalent emission norms
The 2021 Mercedes-Benz E-Class is most likely to boast the same powertrain as its predecessor.
Expected to start somewhere around Rs 60-65 lakh (ex-showroom), the E-Class will take on the Audi A6 and the BMW 5 Series in the Indian market.
