2017 Mercedes E-Class may get a new 220 d variants soon


The 2017 Mercedes E-Class sedan, with a longer wheel-base, has been freshly introduced in India. This sedan is available in a total of 2 trim levels – E350 d and E200. However, there are some reports stating that Mercedes Benz is planning to launch a new trim of the car, the 220-d. This variant might turn out to an important addition to list as it would complete the void in the offering. Mercedes is presently looking to downgrade the engine in the E-Class 220 d from Euro IV to BS IV to make sure that the car gets a clean chit in India on the first go. This procedure is long, hence, the launch of this new option may take place sometime by 2017 June.

The 2017 Mercedes Benz E-Class 220 d is probable to get an all new diesel 2.0-litre, 4 cylinder engine. This engine will be able to make a highest power of 191 BHP and a peak torque of 400 Nm. The Mercedes Benz E-Class sedan has decent safety features for both 350 d as well as the 200 petrol trims. It gets, ABS, child safety lock and 7-safety airbags as standard. Hence, the new 220 d variant is also predictable to get the same set of safety features as standard.
