Mercedes E-Class Facelift
Published Date: 13th Aug 2014
Mercedes have announced updates for the E-Class, to add improved standard features, a little more power and a little less Co2 emissions. This update is for the new 64 plate Mercedes E-Class.
A major facelift took place in 2013 and following this, Mercedes is looking to improve E-Class again for the September 64 plate. Just a few changes this time round, new standard features across the range, all models will benefit from a little more power, lower emissions and the new Mercedes 9G-Tronic Automatic Gearbox.
The nine-speed automatic transmission, Developed in-house, will be matched as standard to the Mercedes E350 Blue TEC engine in the saloon, estate, coupe and cabriolet models. The new 64 plate Mercedes E-Class sees CO2 emissions drop by a massive 17g/km, and the coupe will lead the way, outputting just 136g/km of Co2. Improvements have been made to the economy, as well, with most models seeing a rise of around 5.4 mpg; this achievement has been met alongside the addition of an extra 6bhp, raising the total power output of 254bhp.
When moving up the range to the Cabriolet and Coupe’s flagship E400 AMG Sport , Mercedes has taken this opportunity to rename this trim to the AMG Line, while also increasing the V6 engine’s capacity from 3.0-litre to an impressive 3.5-litres. Emissions on this model drop by an average of 16g/km CO2, so that the cabriolet now emits 168g/km and the coupe 161g/km, both achieving round about 40mpg.
All new 64 Plate Mercedes E-Class’s will come with Collision Prevention Assist Plus as standard, which has been designed to avoid accidents and reduce the impact of collisions. This new technology includes autonomous braking tech that works at up to 62mph should the driver fail to respond, and can also respond to stationary vehicles at up to 30mph, or else prevent rear-end accidents at up to 24mph.
