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.
