Mercedes-Benz Thailand has just revealed its pricing for the new W213 Mercedes-Benz E-Class range ahead of the model’s local debut at the 2016 Bangkok International Motor Show.

For now, just two variants of the latest-gen E-Class have been named, being the E 220d Exclusive Line and the E 220d AMG Dynamic Line (a Thai-specific designation, which we assume is a localised term for what we commonly refer to as the AMG Line).

The E 220d Exclusive Line is priced at 3,999,000 baht (RM467k) while the E 220d AMG Dynamic Line is listed at 4,790,000 baht (RM560k). For our Thai readers, you should note that these prices are for the initial units of the imported (CBU) W213 E-Class only — once local assembly begins, these prices are expected to be reduced.

Comparatively, the previous range of E-Class sedan variants in Thailand were priced from 3,390,000 baht (RM396k) for the E 200 Edition E to 3,790,000 baht (RM442k) for the E 300h BlueTEC Hybrid.

Back to the model at hand, the Mercedes-Benz E 220d is powered by the brand’s new OM654 2.0 litre four-cylinder turbodiesel engine which delivers 194 hp and 400 Nm of torque – replacing the previous 2.1 litre OM651. This enables the new E 220d to go from zero to 100 km/h in 7.3 seconds now, besting the variant’s previous time of 8.2 seconds. The brand’s new 9G-Tronic nine-speed torque converter auto transmission is equipped here.

The Exclusive Line features a slightly more elegant look and feel to the E-Class, adding a traditional bonnet-mounted star, a a triple-lourve front grille, and several chrome appointments on the front and rear bumpers.

The AMG Line variants get a more aggressive look with a front bumper with larger air intakes and two horizontal fins, a two-bar radiator grille with a central Three-Pointed Star, and a sportier rear bumper with chrome accents as well.

No further details were revealed for the Thai market yet, so we’ll have to wait until the coming Bangkok Motor Show to have a closer look at the vehicles ourselves. For us in Malaysia, the W213 E-Class is expected to launch here some time in the third-quarter of the year. For more details on the car, check out our full global debut report.
