Stuttgart - From July of this year Mercedes-Benz is also offering diesel-powered models in the current E-Class range in conjunction with 4MATIC.
Both the Saloon and Estate versions of the new E 280 CDI 4MATIC with 140 kW/190 hp and the E 320 CDI 4MATIC with 165 kW/224 hp, featuring a six-cylinder engine in each case, are available to customers with this permanent all-wheel-drive system. Ex-factory prices range from 46,168 to 51,736 euro. This means that Mercedes-Benz has the largest and most attractive model range in this market segment, comprising a total of 27 engine and bodywork variants. The combination of 4MATIC permanent all-wheel drive and these leading-edge V6 CDI engines sets new standards in terms of safety, traction, pulling power and economy. For instance, the new E 320 CDI 4MATIC (Saloon) accelerates from nought to 100 km/h in 7.4 seconds and goes on to a top speed of 244 km/h, yet burns only 7.9 to 8.1 litres of fuel per 100 kilometres (NEDC combined consumption).
