New-gen Mercedes-Benz E-Class globally unveiled

While the mild-hybrid option provides an additional 23 BHP, the plug-in hybrid versions offer an electric-only range of 115 km.

Mercedes-Benz has taken the wraps off its new sixth-generation E-Class sedan. The new luxury sedan receives a substantial update over the outgoing model, including new features, tech, design and powertrain options.

The 2024 Mercedes-Benz E-Class was unveiled in its standard wheelbase version, with the LWB scheduled to arrive sometime later. The standard wheelbase version of the E-Class is 20 mm longer than its predecessor, translating to better space in the interiors. The new E-Class also uses an updated version of the brand's MRA architecture.

In terms of design, the 2024 E-Class sedan seems to borrow a lot of inspiration from its larger sibling, the S-Class. The sedan features a large upright front grille, large headlamps with integrated LED DRLs, the Mercedes-Benz motif on the bonnet, flush-fitting door handles and horizontal tail lights with new graphics. There is also plenty of chrome elements all around, adding to the luxury factor.

Inside, the 2024 E-Class comes with a completely refreshed styling. The sedan gets a free-standing 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster and a 14.4-inch touchscreen infotainment display. Customers can also opt for the new superscreen, which adds a display for the front-seat passengers. The infotainment unit comes integrated with the brand's MBUX system and features a host of connected tech. The car also has a selfie camera and access to apps and games, while also being able to stream videos.

In terms of powertrain, the 2024 E-Class comes with a choice of 4-cylinder and 6-cylinder petrol and diesel engine options, with either a mild-hybrid or a plug-in hybrid system, depending on the trim. While the mild-hybrid option provides an additional 23 BHP, the plug-in hybrid versions offer an electric-only range of 115 km. Power figures range from 196 BHP to 375 BHP, and a 9-speed automatic transmission comes standard.
