2021 Mercedes-Benz E-class LWB Facelift Unveiled
On the Beijing Motor Show about six months after the German brand removed the wraps from the standard model, the long-wheel-based Mercedes E class facelift was revealed.
Because the 2021 Mercedes-Benz E-class LWB sells in India and China, the model for China gives a good idea of what we are going to be, and because India is the only right-hand drive of this version.
As its name suggests, the wheelbase of the E class LWB is 140 meters long and measures 2.939 meters in length than the standard model. The long-wheelbase version, but of the same width and height is also somewhat longer in total.
The added length gives it a more traditional luxury, but otherwise, the LWB does not distinguish itself too much from the standard E-class facelift.
The new headlight and bumper design features, along with a wider three-layer chrome grille and chrome surrounds, on the fog light clusters as we saw when e-class LWB Facelift images came out earlier this year. A sunken, mesh-like grille with the central Mercedes logo is available on the sporty versions of the e-class facelift.
In the back, a slim, wrapped tail lamp, a newer booting lid, and the new tweaked back pump design are part of the standard and long-wheelbase E-class. New options for alloy wheel help to distinguish the two.
Mercedes claims that comfort in the rear seat also increased, adding a new touchscreen and 2 USB ports in the rear center console.
In addition to this, there is no way to tell the standard 2021 Mercedes-Benz E-class LWB long-wheelbase model – the new infotainment MBUX software and the new steering wheel are common.
Santosh Iyer, vice president, sales & marketing, Mercedes-Benz India, confirmed in April 2020 that the E class facelift was to arrive in India in 2021, in the midst of the first lock-down due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. The Indian spec 2021 Mercedes-Benz E-class LWB should be identical to that of China, apart from the steering wheel moving on the right side.
The E class on sale is now in form of E 200 (Rs 59.08-63.30), E220d (Rs 60.10-64.32), and E 350d (Rs 75.06 lakh). It will be the same as the present car’s engine options to continue. In the line-up in India, the All-Terrain E 220d 4Matic (Rs 77.25 lakh) E-class is provided, though it is based on the standard wheel-base standard car or property style.
The BMW 5 Series, Audi A6, and Jaguar XF will compete when the facing E-Class is launched in India.
