Mercedes E-Class Estate and GLC Coupe: new engines on sale
Mercedes announces prices for new E200d, E350d and E43 AMG estate, while GLC 35d and 43 AMG variants join range
Mercedes has announced that you can now buy a suite of new engines across the E-Class estate and GLC Coupe ranges in the UK. Three new engines are added to the executive load-lugger, while the SUV gains two engines including a flagship AMG version.
The new E200d SE estate brings the price of the Volvo V90 rival down to £36,735 - £1,500 less than the E220d. The 200d is powered by a 148bhp 2.0-litre four cylinder diesel engine, promising 65.7mpg combined and CO2 emissions of 109g/km. The E220d can also now be ordered with 4MATIC four-wheel drive for an extra £1,500.
Further up the range, the 3.0-litre V6 diesel engine arrives with 254bhp and 620Nm of torque. It claims 48.7mpg, emits 140g/km of CO2 and commands £47,255 - over £10,500 more than the E200d.
The range-topping Mercedes-AMG E43 4MATIC variant has also gone on sale. Starting at £58,290, it features a 3.0-litre twin-turbo V6 petrol engine generating 396bhp and powering the estate from 0-62mph in 4.7 seconds. Like the rest of the range, it comes fitted with a nine-speed automatic transmission.
The new GLC Coupe is also available with the same 3.0-litre V6 diesel as the E350d, joining the four-cylinder 250d. It starts from £47,135, emits 161g/km of CO2, claims 47.1mpg on the combined cycle and sprints from 0-62mph in 6.2 seconds.
At the top of the range sits the Mercedes-AMG GLC 43 4MATIC Coupe. You'll pay £50,960 for the bi-turbo 3.0-litre V6 petrol, but here it produces 362bhp. It can get from 0-62mph in 4.9 seconds and is limited to 155mph.
