December 2016 News

Extra engines are now available in the E-Class saloon and estate ranges, with the former gaining a 4Matic edition of the E 220 d, while E 200 d and E 350 d versions of the estate are now on sale and arriving in showrooms in December. Alongside, an optional rear-facing folding bench seat is now available to order on estate versions. Costing £1,250 extra, the pair of additional seats, bringing the total up to seven, are designed to be used by children up to 1.15 metres tall. The chairs fold away when not in use, disappearing into the load compartment floor. Meanwhile, it’s the first time that the E 220 d has been available with 4Matic four-wheel-drive, and costs £1,500 more than the rear-wheel-drive edition. Offered with a choice of SE or AMG Line trim levels with the saloon bodystyle, prices start at £37,730 for the former and £40,225 for the latter. Topping and tailing the latest E-Class estate range are E 200 d and E 350 d models, powered by the same engines that feature in the saloon. Prices start at £36,735 for the E 200 d SE Estate and rise to £49,735 for the E 350 d AMG Line Estate.

Although announced at the GLC-Class Coupé’s launch earlier in the year, it isn’t until now that the GLC 350 d versions are available to order. Powered by the familiar 255bhp 3.0-litre V6 diesel engine, it manages to accelerate to 62mph in just 6.2 seconds and in Sport guise, emits 161g/km of CO2 and can achieve 47.1mpg according to the official laboratory figures. Priced from £47,135 for the GLC 350 d Sport 4Matic, the better specified AMG Line edition costs £1,610 more at £48,745. Both models are available to order now, with the first examples set to be delivered to customers in December.
