If you’re a luxury automaker trying to be successful in China, you better have a long wheelbase model or two in your lineup.
Mercedes-Benz has unveiled the long wheelbase variant of its updated E-Class model at the 2013 Shanghai Motor Show. Designed specifically for the growing luxury market in China, the E-Class long wheelbase has over 5.5 inches more legroom in the rear.
For additional convenience, the front passenger seat can also be electrically adjusted from the rear. And to cater to the growing changes in styling preferences within the Chinese market, the German automaker will be offering two different front ends on the E-Class long wheelbase model. The Sedan will feature the classic, three-dimensional sedan radiator grille in three-louvre look with the Mercedes star on the hood. The Sport Sedan on the other hand will come with the sporty front end with a centrally positioned star to create a distinctive, dynamic look.
The long wheelbase E-Class will launch in China as the E 260 L (204 hp), E 300 L (245 hp), and E 400 L (333 hp).
