Safety and service in check for this Mercedes

Safety and After Sales Service – Mercedes-Benz is known for making some of the safest cars in the world. The E-Class has scored top marks and comes loaded with a lot of safety equipment including 7 airbags and adaptive braking system. Service is likely to be best in class, with many service plans offered by Mercedes-Benz.

The E-Class is the car for chauffeur driven owners

Verdict – The E220d gives buyers what they exactly want. And that is, a lot of space at the rear, a rich cabin, smooth & efficient engine, and a badge that speaks of prestige. The fact that the E220d is now BS6 complaint shows Mercedes’ commitment to always delivering the best. Add in the new variant with extra features, the already excellent E-Class gets even more compelling. However, the Exclusive variant costs about Rs. 4 lakhs more than the lower variant. At Rs 75.5 lakhs, on-road, Mumbai, the E220d Exclusive is amongst the more expensive cars in the segment. However, its compelling mix of technology, comfort, features and performance makes the E-Class hard to beat.

Testers’ Note:

“The Mercedes-Benz E-Class is a no-brainer if you’re looking for a comfortable sedan in this segment. It has the most space amongst all the cars in this segment and the cabin makes you feel very special with its brilliant materials and fine-crafted sophistication that cocoons you from the outside world while on the move. The E-Class is a great tool for arriving in style. The E220d variant that we drove offered good performance while efficiency is also very good. However, don’t expect any blistering acceleration figures or lap times with this LWB car. The more powerful E350d isn’t on sale anymore but I feel the E220d is more than enough for buyers in this segment.” Parth Gohil, Associate Editor, MotorBeam.
