A good move by Merc. E class is one of the best sellers of the Merc and with these features on list Eclass becomes more desirable.

(E) xciting - Class!

The surveys show Mercedes Benz E-Class to be one of the most preferred car by company CEOs for which status symbol matters. As the competition in every segment is increasing with rapidly, This luxury class segment to which E-Class belongs is a no exception.

Hence, It makes necessary for car makers especially Mercedes to offer updates to their line-up. Both the models have been priced really competitively.

Both the black beauties look gorgeous! Benz had to do something as it was losing the battle to BMW in India! The pricing also seems competitive!

After losing it to Bavarian & Co, Benz is targeting more on the buyers.

Hope they come back with a bang again.

E series is definitely a head turner!

Mercedes rolls out India’s costliest limousine S-Guard

From the Hindu.

German car major Mercedes-Benz launched its luxury limousine S-Guard in the country with cost around Rs 6 crore (ex showroom).

The car comes with special protective features to withstand ballistic and firearms attack and is fitted with a 12 cylinder 5.5 cc petrol engine.

“This car is basically targeted at corporate and industry leaders, government officials and celebrities. We want to tap the growing market for armoured and protective vehicles in India,” Mercedes-Benz India member of the board of management Suhas Kadlaskar told reporters.

He said the company has already received enquiries about the new car from prospective customers but refused to give details.

The S-Guard will come as a completely built unit (CBU) from the company’s plant in Germany. Kadlaskar said the exact price of the car will be decided once the first order comes and will depend on import duties and other specifications.

6 CRORES!!:eek:

Great one but its costly at the extreme. The segment where it is pitched in has now quite a few variety available other than the Mercedes such as the Legendeary Rolls Royce, Bentley etc. Also, The Merc name has become too common among Indian Industrialists/Entrepreneurs, so who won't prefer the exclusivity?

This is really nice move.

I was expecting this news very long back from BMW & Merc.

Atleast happy now. RR & Bentley's have to rethink now.
