The Mercedes-Benz E-Class LWB has been the bestselling model for the German carmaker in India for quite a while and the updated 2021 Mercedes-Benz E-Class facelift is expected to keep up with that momentum. The new sedan has been updated to match its family looks and feels more plush and futuristic on the inside. It is offered in Polar White, Obsidian Black, High-Tech Silver and Mojave Silver body colour options. Additionally, two more colours would be available for a limited time – Selenite Grey and Designo Hyacinth Red. Here are the highlights.

The 2021 E-Class does not get the typical twin headlight and LED DRL treatment. In fact, the single LED DRL now looks great and the bulges on the bonnet give it an aggressive look. The rear has been newly designed and the new split tail light design gives it a fresh appeal. The quarter glass at the rear is inspired by the Mercedes-Maybach.
The inside comes with plush Artico leather dashboard and open pore wood trims at the front and rear. But it’s the rear seat that gets your attention as they recline to up to 37 degrees. The new capacitive touch control buttons on the steering wheel are quite likeable and so is the new beige-Tropez blue interior upholstery reserved only for the top variant.
Infotainment & Connected Tech
The MBUX system enhances user experience by incorporating a powerful computer, brilliant screens and graphics, a customizable display, learning-capable software, and “Hey Mercedes” voice assistance with natural language recognition. You get the digital cockpit with dual 12.3-inch display screens.
In the features department you get a 590W Burmester surround Sound system, panoramic sunroof, three-zone climate control and wireless charger among others. In the second row, there are as many as 5 C-type charging points.
The Mercedes-Benz E-Class is offered with three engine options – a 2.0-litre petrol, a 2.0-litre diesel and a 3.0-litre diesel in an AMG line. While the 2.0-litre petrol churns out 194 bhp, the 2.0-litre diesel pushes out 192 bhp. The more powerful 3.0-litre diesel belts out for 282 bhp.
