4MATIC all-wheel drive E-Class available from £38,175
Marking the first time a diesel E-Class has been offered with all-wheel drive in the UK, the new models are priced from £38,175 for the Saloon and £40,175 for the Estate and use the same new four-cylinder 2.0-litre bi-turbo engine as the standard rear-wheel drive E 220 d. Emissions start from 117g/km CO2 with official combined fuel economy of 62.8mpg for the saloon (126g/km and 57.7mpg for the estate). As with all new E-Class models, the 4MATIC versions are also paired with a nine-speed 9G-Tronic automatic gearbox.
Standard specification matches that on the rear-wheel drive E-Class. On SE models this includes: Garmin Map Pilot navigation system with 8.4-inch display, Parktronic parking sensors with reversing camera and Park Pilot self-parking system, Collision Prevention Assist Plus autonomous emergency braking system, Pre-Safe anticipatory safety system, two-zone automatic climate control, leather upholstery with heated front seats and 17-inch wheels.
AMG Line models add to this with bespoke exterior styling including bumpers and side skirts, 19-inch alloy wheels, perforated front brake discs and Artico leather and Dinamica microfibre upholstery with seat comfort package.
The E-Class 4MATIC models are available to order now, with first UK deliveries starting in April.
