Introduction

The E-class is the most important model in the Mercedes-Benz lineup both locally and on a global scale. That fact is further underlined with the previous model’s sales figures. To date, Mercedes-Benz has sold nearly 800,000 of the W212 model in both estate and sedan variants. Incidentally, the E-class also has more variants than any other model in the family.

Locally, none is more popular among the local towkays (head honchos of local SMEs) than the E200 variant. This mid-sized saloon offers a balanced mix of comfort, stoic executive design and decent handling.

Just four years after its introduction, Mercedes-Benz is taking the opportunity to update its star model with the latest in safety and driver assistance systems.

I like the service provided. It's a one stop service center. Received follow up after receiving the highest quote. No unneccessary haggling from professional dealers.
