Mercedes-Benz has revealed the pricing of the most all-rounder E-Class ever. Just after the launch of new Mercedes C-Class. Mercedes took off the covers from the E-Class All-terrain station wagon. It costs worth Rs 75 Lakhs. So, a surplus amount of 18.5 Lakhs over the standard 220d on which it is based.
Powering this All-Terrain behemoth is an OM 654 2.0-cylinder diesel unit which is BSVI compliant and puts down 194PS of power at 3800rpm and 400Nm of torque from 1600-2800rpm. The new 9G-Tronic nine-speed automatic transmission comes as standard. Mercedes claims a top speed of 231kmph. As a result, sprint to a ton takes around 8 seconds. But this E-Class is not about the numbers.
Taking all the good bits from the E-Class. The main feature of the car is its All-Terrain capabilities. For that, it gets a DYNAMIC select with All-terrain transmission mode. Also, ground clearance has also gone up by a healthy 35mm thanks to the air body control multi-chamber air suspension. Apart from the DYNAMIC select, to make the car look beefier Mercedes has done some changes.
The 17-inch alloy wheels from the sedan are done with bigger 19-inch alloy wheels. A bolder and striking look with powerfully flared wheel arches and SUV radiator grille and dual exhaust tips with faux bash plates at the rear.
Interior gets the same features list as E-Class 220d. Three-zone climate control, 12.3-inch touchscreen infotainment system, reclining rear seats with comfort headrest, 64-color ambient lighting, and panoramic sunroof among others.
For safety, there are seven airbags, ABS with EBD, ESP, tyre pressure monitoring system.
So talking about Practicality the E-Class All-Terrain has lots of nifty features. It gets a 40:20:40 split seat system which allows you to free up to a humungous space of 1820 litres. That’s more than 3 times the space of normal E-class. Even with all the seats up boot space is 640 litres. While you can further increase the space by 30 litre if you increase the rake angle of the second row by 10 degrees.
Addressing the Launch Mr. Roland Folger, Managing Director & CEO, Mercedes-Benz India said, “The Mercedes-Benz E-Class All-Terrain has a powerful, unique appearance coupled with a go-anywhere capability which differentiates All-Terrain from a classic estate.
He further said, “Our strategy for the Indian market for launching more and more products from our global portfolio is very well received by our discerning customers. The E-Class has been one of our most successful products for the Indian market and we are positive of the market response for the E-Class All-Terrain as well.”
Furthermore, at a price of 75 Lakhs, the Mercedes-Benz E-Class All-Terrain has no rival except Volvo V90 Cross Country which is almost 10 Lakhs cheaper.
