F30 posted a topic in Test Drives & ReviewsThe Video starts off with a quick open air class room session; And an in depth discussion on Engine Performance & Handling; Likes; - Looks & Stance- Power Delivery of the V6 Engine - Interior Space & Comfort- Air Suspension & Ride QualityDislikes; - Run Flats & 225 mm width tyres (Better, Wider tyres should transform the ride & handling further) - Ground Clearance is at a low 135 mm (Even low @ 120mm in sport, sport+ mode)- Missing features like the HUD, front double display screen & rear infotainment is disappointing at this price point.- Big Price Gap between the petrol & top end diesel v6 (the nicer version). Other Observations; - The LWB may look mis proportionate in pics but in flesh it seems to look pretty good. - The doors of the car never seem to close properly, it seems they are the ones designed for the soft close feature, hence looks like a last minute omission by Mercedes India. - Steering is good for a Electric Unit. - Though the seats are of artificial leather they seem to be of great quality & will not disappoint at all. - LED headlamps are excellent. - This being a LWB & Real Seat focussed car is jokingly missing Audio / Mercedes Command Controls at the back. - Rear seats recline by 37 Degrees. - Its Fast & Fun to drive, handles well too, as i said in the review DO NOT confuse judgement with handling as its a long car. - But, Handling could have been better with wider tyres as these 225's scare more than the length of the car. - Though i have mentioned the Ground Clearance as a dislike, but i love the stance of the car. - This is the 1st time that the E-Class is offered without a spare tyre (Does offer a space saver though) - Fuel Economy i managed from the V6 was a decent 10.4 km/l & with 66L Fuel Tank will have a good range. - Note, this time there will be no E250d on offer but an E220d which will launch soon. - This new 2L Diesel from the E220d is codenamed OM654 (All Aluminium) and will have 195hp & 400NM of torque (100 NM less than the E250d which was 500NM)
