Mercedes-Benz Expands E-Class range in SA


Mercedes-Benz has expanded its line-up of E-Class derivatives with the introduction of the E250 and E400 4MATIC derivatives.  

When the new Mercedes-Benz E-Class made landfall in South Africa back in June 2016, three models were on offer including the E200, E220d and the E350d. As promised, the E-Class range has now been expanded to include the E250 and E400 4MATIC. The range is expected to be bolstered even further with the imminent arrival of the E43 AMG and the E63 AMG in the second quarter of 2017. A plug-in hybrid derivative will complete the range in 2018.

Here’s a quick summary of the current Mercedes-Benz E-Class offering in South Africa.
