Are you flush with cash today? You should then be able to seriously consider purchasing the new Mercedes-Benz E-class, which is now on sale with prices ranging from £35,935 to £47,425. The first deliveries are targeted for May 2016 so you still have plenty of time to gather your resources for the tenth-generation luxury saloon.
Choices include two trim levels, namely, the SE and AMG lines, as well as two diesel engines, namely, the four-cylinder and six-cylinder engines. The full price list, per the company’s press release, is as follows:
E220d SE at £35,935
E350d SE at £44,930
E220d AMG Line at £38,430
E350d AMG Line at £47,425
For the standard E220d SE, the features include satellite navigation, heated front seats, 8.4-inch high-resolution display, front and rear parking sensors, leather trim, reversing camera, LED head and tail-lights, and dual-zone climate control, among others. While the 17-inch wheels are industry standard, the E350d SE has larger 18-inch wheels coupled with a larger 12.3-inch display and an air suspension.
For the E220d AMG, a larger display is available for an extra £1495. But if you are looking for more value for your money, perhaps the replacement of the conventional instrument display with a digital display for just £495 is a better idea.
The AMG line vehicles feature different side skirts and bumpers, drilled front brake discs, 19-inch wheels for both the E350d and E200d versions, AMG steering wheel, and sports part-leather yet still luxurious seats.
Being flush with cash has its advantage with the new Mercedes-Benz E-class because of the optional extras. The Premium Pack, for example, costs £2,795 and comes with a memory function for the front seats, a keyless start, and a panoramic glass roof.
