Mercedes-Benz launches the facelifted E-Class - the car that continues to deliver stylish highlights with its distinct, emotive design.

10 Dec 2020 | Local News : Singapore

Mercedes-Benz has finally taken the wraps off the highly-anticipated E-Class and it has been comprehensively upgraded.

With over 14 million Saloon, Estate, Coupe and Cabriolet models delivered since 1946, the E-Class is the best-selling model series in the history of Mercedes-Benz. Many regard it as the 'heart of the brand'. The 10th generation of the E-Class sports an emotionally appealing design, and an exclusive high-quality interior - setting a high benchmark for cars in its class. This emotionally appealing and at the same time intelligent combination is extremely successful: To date, more than 1.2 million customers around the world have purchased a current generation E-Class.

The grille of the Avantgarde Line was redesigned with two chrome louvres and vertical high-gloss black struts
Design wise, the new front end with increased chrome content plays a role in the fresh appearance: Chrome and high-gloss black trim elements in the front bumper underscore the sporty and elegant appearance. The likewise available Exclusive Line lives up to its name: The special grille, the upright star on the bonnet and the large chrome elements in the front bumper emphasise this positioning.

The AMG Line with a new bumper in the style of the AMG Performance models looks even sportier. In addition, Avantgarde, AMG Line features a bonnet with powerdomes. The E-Class features all-LED headlamps as standard. Multibeam LED headlamps including Ultra Range high beams are available as optional equipment.

The inner design of the taillights has been revised for all models
The designers also updated the Saloon's rear end with a new bumper, two-section taillights and a new boot lid.

On the inside, the seats combine hallmark Mercedes-Benz long-distance suitability with avant garde design. While providing a high level of comfort, they ensure good support in dynamic driving situations. The adaptive driver's seat adjustment is a particularly intelligent feature: When the driver's height is entered in the media display or via Mercedes me, the seat automatically moves into a position generally suitable for someone of that height, which then only needs to be fine-tuned by the driver.

Cabin is a work of art, with an emotive design that makes it a wonderful place to be in
The new E-Class has the latest generation of Mercedes-Benz driving assistance systems providing cooperative support to drivers. This results in an especially high level of active safety: The vehicle is able to react intelligently and rapidly if the driver fails to respond.

The hands-off detection feature of the steering wheel now works on a capacitive basis. This enhances user-friendliness when driving in semi-automated mode. This is because to inform the assistance systems that the driver still has control of the E-Class, it is sufficient for the driver to hold the steering wheel.

The E200 is powered by a 2.0-litre turbocharged engine that pumps out 195bhp and 320Nm of torque
Steering torque - that is to say a slight steering movement - was previously required as feedback. The new steering wheel features a pad with the appropriate sensors in the rim. These register whether the driver is holding the wheel. If the system detects that the driver does not have his/her hands on the steering wheel for a certain time, a warning sequence is started. This finally activates Emergency Brake Assist if the driver continues to be inactive.

The new E-Class is currently available in one engine variant with three design and equipment lines: E200 Avantgarde, E200 Exclusive and E200 AMG Line.

The Mercedes-Benz E200 Saloon is powered by the 2.0-litre turbocharged four-cylinder engine combined with the 9G-TRONIC automatic transmission. It develops 195bhp from 5,500rpm and a maximum torque of 320Nm from just 1,650rpm, allowing the vehicle to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 7.5 seconds.
