The new diesel engine pushes out 192 PS and 400 Nm of torque.

The new Mercedes E220 d made its Thai debut at 2016 Bangkok Motor Show which is currently under way. The new gen model which world premiered at NAIAS (Detroit Motor Show) earlier this year is a drastic changeover compared to the outgoing model.

Based on the MRA (Modular Rear-wheel-drive Architecture), the new E sources several critical components and modules from the smaller C and bigger S Class models. The styling too conforms to the brand’s latest philosophy which is characterized by smooth flowing aerodynamic lines.

The new Mercedes E Class adopts the brand’s latest design philosophy.

Inside, the new E Class borrows design inspiration equally from the C Class and S Class. The upper half of the dashboard with digital instrument console (in higher variants) and wide infotainment display comes from the flagship model while the lower half is lifted off the C Class. The latest iteration of the mid-size luxury sedan comes packed up to the brim with latest safety assistance systems, connectivity and comfort features.

The interior is a blend of elements from the S Class and C Class.

The E220 d is powered by a new 2.0-litre turbocharged diesel engine which is mated to a 9-speed automatic transmission to churn out 192 PS and 400 Nm of torque. The sedan can accelerate from 0-100 kmph in under 8 seconds before hitting a top speed of 240 kmph.

The new Mercedes E220 d is expected to reach India as a CKD model sometime later this year.
