Mercedes-Benz has finally launched the all-new S-Class in India with a range of updates onboard. The most interesting part of this car is not the design or the features, but the engine itself as this is the first BS-IV emission compliant car in the country with an engine under the hood complying with the new stricter emission norm that is all set to be implemented across the country from April 2020. Also, this engine will be able to run on BS-IV compliant fuel, which certainly makes the car attractive.
The new Mercedes-Benz M-class is so far removed from its predecessor there’s little use comparing the two directly. It’s so good we think it could go straight to the top of its class.
The new car’s taut shape and more sporting profile cut the drag co-efficient from 0.40 to a class-leading 0.34. Underneath the sharp bodywork there have been many changes, including a switch from a ladder-frame chassis to unibody construction, new driveline combinations, plush new materials and the latest in four-wheel-drive technology.
The coming together of two big names, ‘Mercedes’ and ‘Maybach’ on the already stunning S-Class indicate how can one make a splendid offering appear even better. Catering to the elite class, the S-Class is one of the most desirable cars around in premium segment. Striving for perfection, the new S600 is a longer and higher avatar of the long wheelbase S-Class with an even bigger space on offer inside the cabin. That said, the wheelbase has been increased by 207 mm which implies a considerable increase in size of the cabin. Changes made for betterment can be identified in front grille design that now looks chicer and chrome work done in abundance around the window frame. One of the prominent changes made to the saloon is the inclusion of a potent twin-turbo V12 engine propagating massive power output.
The new Mercedes-Benz E-Class is the latest and upgraded version of the E-Class models, taking the luxury and performance to the next level. The Mercedes-Benz E-Class is available in E-200 and E-350 variants in the petrol and diesel versions, respectively. Few of the new features introduced in this model include LED high performance headlamps with DRL and new crystal look LED taillights.
Mercedes launched the all new C-Class that holds true to its luxurious roots. India has been one of the more profitable market for the German auto manufacturers. The C-Class is the best selling product in India and has always been favoured by the classes in the entry-level luxury sedan. The new C-Class has also grown in dimensions and comes with a plethora of tech wizardry and creature comforts on-board.
