    Mercedes-Benz has launched the BS6-compliant E-class long wheelbase in India with prices ranging from Rs 57.5 lakh for the base petrol and going up to Rs 62.5 lakh for the top-end diesel.

    The biggest change in the update is to the engine line-up. The 2.0-litre petrol and diesel engines from the E 200 and E 220d respectively now meet BS6 emission regulations. Interestingly, while the 2.0-litre diesel continues to develop an identical 194hp and 400Nm of torque, the petrol motor now develops 197hp (up by 13hp); although its torque remains unchanged at 300Nm. Both units are paired with a 9-speed automatic gearbox as standard.

    The larger V6 diesel-powered E 350d has not been upgraded to meet the new emission norms.
    The BS6-compliant Mercedes E-class LWB is available in a choice of two trim levels – Expression and Exclusive. The trims can be had with either engine option.

    In terms of equipment, the top E-class Exclusive packs in a host of new tech, including wireless charging for rear passengers, a touchscreen in the rear-centre armrest to control in-car functions and a 13-speaker Burmester surround sound system that was earlier available only on the top-spec E 350d variant.

    Also new to the E-class in India are the twin 12.3-inch displays that act as the instrument cluster and infotainment display – Exclusive trim only. The E-class previously featured an analogue instrument cluster with a single 12.3-inch display acting as the display for Mercedes' Comand infotainment system on all non-AMG models.

    On the safety front, the E-class continues to be offered with a host of safety systems including seven airbags, ABS, ESP and the brand’s Pre-Safe system.

    The E-class continues to rival the likes of the Audi A6 and the BMW 5 Series and 6 Series GT.

    Poll of the month

    The Mahindra XUV 300 facelift will be called the XUV 3XO. Should more brands rename models for facelifts?

    Yes, it could give new life to a slow-selling car



    Yes, but only if there are significant changes



    No, it's confusing and dilutes the brand name



    No difference, the product speaks for itself
