2017 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Australian pricing confirmed

Mercedes-Benz Australia has just confirmed the new Mercedes-Benz E-Class will be priced from $89,990.

The new model will be offered here initially in three model grades; E 200, E 220 d (from $92,900) and E 350 d (from $134,900).

The engine range comprises 135kW/300Nm 2.0 litre petrol, 143kW/400Nm 2.0 litre diesel and 190kW/620Nm 3.0 litre six-cylinder diesel.

While another two petrol models will arrive in Australia later in the year; the E 300 and E 400 4MATIC.

Mercedes-Benz tell us all tenth-generation E-Class models will come standard with a generous list of features, including:

  • Driver Assistance package PLUS
  • Widescreen cockpit
  • KEYLESS-GO with hands free access
  • 360° camera
  • Steering wheel with touch control buttons
  • Electric front seats with memory function
  • LED High Performance headlights
  • Stardust effect LED taillights

65mm longer than the ninth-generation model, Mercedes-Benz say the addition length translates directly to a roomier cabin, while a great percentage of aluminium in the E-Class chassis and body panels has made the car more-nimble and efficient.

Head of research and development at Mercedes-Benz cars, Dr Thomas Weber, says Australian luxury car buyers will not be disappointed.

“The E-Class is the core of the Mercedes-Benz brand and in the past has repeatedly redefined the standards in the executive-class segment. Now it carries this tradition into the future with a wealth of top-class innovations.

“The new E-Class takes another major step towards autonomous driving. In addition, it enhances efficiency, safety and comfort, reduces the stress level when driving and intensifies the motoring pleasure.”

The 2017 Mercedes-Benz E-Class is now available to order with customer deliveries expected to start next month.
