2021 Mercedes E Class LWB
Rear seat passengers will get even more space now

Mercedes has unveiled the 2021 E-Class L, the long-wheelbase (LWB) version of the E-Class saloon, at Auto China 2020.

Like the E-Class facelift that was revealed earlier this year, the LWB version too gets new styling. Changes include a new radiator grille of which there are two designs – a three-slat one that resembles the one on the S-Class and another with a mesh finish.

The luxury saloon also gets new LED headlamps, revised front and rear bumpers, restyled LED tail lights and a new boot lid to complete the design refresh.

Overall length of the 2021 Mercedes E-Class LWB has increased by 22 mm to 5056 mm, however, the wheelbase has seen a further 140 mm added to it in comparison with the regular version to provide even more legroom for the rear passengers.

Inside, the automaker claims to have improved the seating comfort in the middle seat at the rear and has launched a new centre console with an integrated touchscreen and two USB ports.

Other than that, the design of the dashboard is the same and the E-Class LWB gets the MBUX (Mercedes-Benz User Experience) multimedia system, MBUX Interior Assistant, a new steering wheel, among various other features. It gets all the safety and driver assist systems as the facelifted E-Class as well.

Launch of the E-Class LWB will happen by next year in India and engine options are likely to mirror that of the existing E-Class saloon.

It must be noted that our country is the only other nation to get the long-wheelbase variant, the other being China, and the only nation to get the variant in right-hand drive spec.
