Mechanically, unlike the outgoing model, which had three powertrain options, the 2017 E-Class long-wheelbase will offer a petrol and diesel engine option. However, both the engines are carried forward from the previous model. The diesel is the 3.0 liter V6 (258PS/620Nm), while the petrol is a 2.0- liter motor (184PS/300Nm). Both the engines are coupled to a new nine speed automatic gear transmission. The previous E-Class, in contrast, was offered with a seven speed unit.

The all-new 2017 E-Class takes will go up against familiar rivals such as the BMW 5 Series, Audi A6 Jaguar XF and the freshly introduced Volvo S90. However, it will always have an added benefit of the extra legroom it brings as opposed to its rivals, but the prices for the same will be comparatively higher too. While its competitors start in the vicinity of Rs.50 lakh, the base price of the new E-Class is likely to begin around Rs.60 lakh.
