Mercedes E-Class: Anti-ageing formula

While the styling and added features have turned the new E-Class into an improved package, naturally, the sticker price has also changed – fortunately, it’s now dearer only by Rs 20,000. The new E250 CDI will set you back by Rs 44.48 lakh, the E200 CGI is Rs 41.5 lakh (both ex-showroom, Delhi). If you’re one of the first 100 to book the new car, you can have a German-made E-Class for Rs 49.9 lakh (ex-showroom, Delhi), brought in as a CBU.

With the new car’s refreshed design theme, added goodies, comfort and space, Mercedes looks ready with a proper response to all those who said, “Mercs are for oldies”. Still, while it’s a good thing for Mercedes to be attracting younger buyers, I’ve decided to hunt down the man or woman who took that illuminated logo out of the standard feature list.
