Mercedes-Benz E 420 CDI W211

My, my, how time flies. Can you believe been over four since the all-new Mercedes-Benz debuted. Here I am, driving the W211, and the first time I it is still fresh in my mind. lights reflecting rapidly on a shape, a very retro yet blue instrument console back at me and the speedo needle lounging about at 140 kph the imagery is vivid. So it’s a proper vu for me as I push the revamped E through its at the same places!

Since its debut in 2002 in the time feels like just to me DaimlerChrysler has shipped over a units of the E saloon and estate to worldwide. Yes, a million. So is why they decided to sell a more by improving the E not too much, but enough to ambitiously (and call it ‘all-new’ and launched it year in New York. Externally, for a sharper grille, a butch headlamps with new louvers at the top and (and dare I say more external rear view it’s not a dramatic facelift. On the a new steering wheel which like it has been borrowed the SL marks its presence and it gets a too. But the biggest changes are not you can see, but what you can feel, I’ll come to later.

For us in India, the E-Class range has juggled around. Out goes the E 270 and in comes the E 280 CDI V6, and the E 240 V6 has been replaced by the E 280 V6, the entry-level E 200 K gets a power And both the V6s get Mercedes’ famous automatic gearbox. Thankfully India launched the middle-of-the-range motor it would have tempting for them to introduce the E 200 or E 220 the E 320 and E 420 CDI would be too much to ask), but I the impending competition made wisen up. Just as well, the 280 CDI is such a fabulous engine I was left chewing my nails what the 320 and 420 would be like.

Displacing 2987cc, this turbodiesel V6 develops 196 bhp at 4000 rpm and a 46 kgm between 1400 and 2800 And over the years of development of diesels, you can see how these powerplants evolved. Compared to the first-generation CDI the new ones are even more less noisy, powerful and yet lose out on fuel efficiency.

In the even though the torque in as early as 1400 revs, the saps the initial go that you are to in petrol cars or even with manual transmissions. But the advantage of this high-tech (Mercedes really knows its you can manually override in case you that quick getaway. beyond that 1400 however, life in the E 280 CDI is all about how you with that abundance of The automatic transmission offers you control; it keeps it in check you are in a mood to glide gently at a 80 kph or when you are stuck in cheek-by-jowl and lets go when you sight an stretch. And that’s when the comes into its natural A cruising speed of 160 kph, the tacho nudging 2000 rpm hits its sweet spot. And you get a bit aggressive with the pedal, the E 280 a shallow breath and attains 200 kph

Yes, as you might have it often, it doesn’t feel as if its the subcontinent in double-century speeds for the marked increase in tyre and noise, that is. It is calm the cabin and the car hardly feels its buffeted by high wind Though 200 kph is what we attained, it is of going up by at least 30 kph more.And for a appointed, full-size saloon, the E 280 CDI is quick. Again, you might not notice it, unless you glance at the Or are addicted to traffic-light drag It dismissed off the 0 to 60 kph run in 4.17 seconds and 100 kph from standstill in 9.07 But that’s still not its core When you are on the highway and are already over 80 kph and need to overtake the E won’t disappoint. It simply through our 80 to 120 kph runs in just seconds and the 100 to 140 kph runs in 7.32 Hopefully, owners of the E 280 CDI, it’s a diesel, would use it the way meant to be not for the home-to-office run during hour, but to reach Goa from in time for lunch.

Among the raft of changes the E received, a significant improvement is in the feel. I guess Mercedes-Benz had of hearing from automotive that their steering though no doubt good, lacked the sparkle and immediacy BMWs offered. So the engineers at decided to liven up the driving of this luxury barge by the steering setup more It does work well for and turn-ins are almost instantaneous, but the intuitive nature of BMW’s is still missing. This, slightly reworking the front system by the way, it’s a setup at front and a multi-link at aided by coil springs and gas shock absorbers all around. But the one that BMW can’t beat in is in the ride quality department. seat drivers buy Mercs their eyes shut. The E handles markedly better body roll is not that and it feels superbly planted cornering at ridiculous speeds. it’s not exactly nimble, it provide adequate cornering for the weekend driver/owner.

Which brings me to the question: so you plonk your Rs 45-odd on the E 280 CDI? If you are a Mercedes-Benz buff, there’s no question at all. But if you can beyond three-pointed stars, you now the E-Class’s arch-rivals the BMW 5 Series and the A6, both with their own waiting for your cheque. a few years back, you were not faced with a dilemma this, but now. time flies, doesn’t it?
