In terms of design, the all-new E-Class now comes with multiple updates upfront. To start with, it gets a new pair of LED headlights with DRLs, redesigned front bumper with proper air intakes and a wider chrome studded front grille. Also, the updated E-Class now runs on a new set of alloy wheels. Mercedes Benz has also introduced multiple color schemes on the all-new luxury sedan including Mojave Silver, High-Tech Silver, Polar White and Obsidian Black. Further, two more limited edition paint schemes are now available on the 2021 Mercedes Benz E-Class LWB, precisely – Hyacinth Red and Selenite Grey.

However, this will not be the case with the AMG Line. The E350d variant will get a diamond-studded front grille, AMG-specific front and rear bumper and a new set of 18-inch alloy wheels just to make sure that it looks sportier when compared to the regular variants.

Inside the cabin, the all-new Mercedes Benz E-Class will get three-zone climate control, wireless charging pad, panoramic sunroof, ambient lighting, leather upholstery and MBUX infotainment system to name a few. Safety features such as seven airbags, ESP, traction control, tyre pressure monitoring system, etc. among others are also a part of the standard equipment.

Under the hood, even the recently updated E-Class comes with the same three engines on offer, exactly just like the previous one. Firstly, the E200 variant comes with a 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol engine that is capable of producing 174HP and Nm of torque. Next on the list is the E200d variant that is currently available with a 2.0-litre four-cylinder diesel engine. It can churn out 194HP and Nm of torque. Last but not least, is a 286HP, 3.0-litre six-cylinder diesel motor that remains exclusive to the E350d variant. All these motors are currently available with a 9-speed torque converter gearbox.
