Coming soon to SA. The all new Benz design.

The new E-Class, the new SLC and the enhanced SL are available to order now, with deliveries commencing in June.

As the world’s most forward-looking production car, the new E-Class sets high standards, with pricing starting at R707,100 for the new E200, to R759,100 for the E 220 d.

To coincide with its 20-year anniversary, the SLK compact roadster is to be
relaunched with a new name – the SLC – as well as significantly optimised technology and an enhanced look.

Prices now start at R680 600 for the new SLC 200 model with an output of 135 kW.

As for the SL, more powerful engines, the automatic transmission 9G-TRONIC, DYNAMIC SELECT with five transmission modes and Active Body Control with the curve tilting function all take the SL sports-car legend to a new dynamic level.

The entry-level SL model is the SL 400 with an output of 270 kW (prices from R1,435,100).

The most intelligent Business Class sedan combines sensually pure design and an exclusive interior with innovations that make it the most intelligent saloon in the executive category.

There are initially three engines available at market launch: the E 200 with a four-cylinder petrol engine developing 135 kW available from R707,100 and the E 220 d featuring an all-new four-cylinder diesel engine with an output of 143 kW, which has combined NEDC fuel consumption of 3.9 litres per 100 kilometres, equivalent to CO2 emissions of 112 grams per kilometre – R759,100.

The third variant is the powerful E 350 d with a V6 diesel engine developing 190 kW of power and a torque of 620 Nm – R946 300.

All three models are equipped with the 9G-TRONIC nine-speed automatic transmission as standard.
