The German automaker, the second largest in terms of luxury sales in the world, has announced pricing and delivery details for its latest models – the new generation E Class and SLC roadster, as well as the facelifted SL.
All three family of models can be ordered now but first deliveries will only take place in April – understandable for the two roadsters but more questionable when talking about the executive sedan. Anyways, the new E-Class will initially become available with three engines. First off, the base E class for now is the E 200 gasoline version, a four-cylinder developing 184 hp and costing from 45,303 euros – and mated to the 9G-TRONIC nine-speed automatic transmission as standard. More interesting is the E 220 d, which costs from €47,124 and comes packing an all new diesel engine with 195 hp and a combined NEDC fuel consumption of 3.9 liters per 100 kilometers. The third version – the E 350 d – will become available starting June and will cost €55,602, coming to the roster with a more powerful V6 churning out 258 hp and a torque of 620 Nm. The two diesel engines are also equipped from the get go with the 9G-TRONIC gearbox.
Next up is the compact roadster – which has changed its name from the SLK to the SLC and now celebrates its 20th anniversary. Pricing starts at €34,926 for the new SLC 180 base version that packs 156 hp. Prices will initially top out at 59,886 when selecting the new flagship Mercedes-AMG SLC 43 version that boasts 367 hp.
The classy Mercedes-Benz SL has been enhanced recently and boasts increased power across its engine range, the 9G-TRONIC automatic transmission and new options, among other novelties. Pricing starts at €99,097 for the SL 400 with a V6 enhanced to deliver 367 hp and 500 Nm; while the range-topping SL 500 comes with a mighty V8 churning out 455 hp and a price to measure – €122,897.
