Mercedes-Benz India will be launching the E350 CDI on September 11 in the country, thus adding another variant to the E-Class lineup. Not to forget the fact, E-Class is the best selling car in the entire Mercedes-Benz arsenal. Thus, in a bid to further consolidate its position in India, the company has decided to add up another variant in the line up.
The E350 CDI flaunts traditional Mercedes Benz designing and to further spice it up, the company has incorporated premium interior upholstery. It would be positioned above the existing E250 CDI in the line-up and would become the top-of-the-end variant. It might also get an AMG badge in future, but nothing is concrete as of now. The company intends to carry forward the unmatched legacy of the E-Class brand with this new variant by providing an uncompromising range of comfort features. It boasts several avant-garde safety features in form of Distronic Plus adaptive cruise control with Steering Assist, Active Lane Keeping Assist, pedestrian recognition, Cross Traffic Assistant, blind-spot warning, adaptive high-beam lights and automatic parking.
Mechanically, it would be powered by a 6-cylinder motor with Intelligent Drive technology that would further enhance the driving experience. The 3.0-litre twin turbocharged diesel motor would deliver top power of 266PS and peak torque of 620Nm. It would be coupled with the 7-speed dual clutch ‘7G-Tronic Plus’ gearbox which is already doing duties to the E200 and E250 CDi variants. This powerful engine propels the saloon to touch the 100kmph mark in just 6.6 seconds with an electronically limited top speed of 250kmph.
