The W211 Series

The Mercedes-Benz began production of the W211 Series, the latest
E-Class, in 2002 and continues until the 2009 Geneva International
Motor Show in Geneva, Switzerland in March of 2009 when the successor,
the W 212 Series, is expected to launch. The W211 was produced on the
automotive premises of its predecessor, the Mercedes-Benz W210 Series,
sporting a refined body style.


Features of the Mercedes-Benz W211

The fourth generation of the Mercedes-Benz E-Class is manufactured in a
4-door sedan or 5-door station wagon body style; the most noteworthy
changes have occurred under the hood. The engine options of the latest
E-Class are manufactured in 2.6, 3.2, 3.5, 5.0, 5.4 or 6.2 liter and
168 to 507 hp. This E-Class is larger than any of its predecessors,
offering gasoline or diesel engines with a choice of rear or 4-wheel
drive.

The transmission options are 5 or 7-speed automatic or 6-speed manual.
The manufacturer’s cylinder options are V6, V8, with up to 24-valves,
and the Inline-4 or Supercharged Inline-4. The newest models sport new
styling and many attractive features, including electronically
controlled brakes, four-zone climate control, and an adaptive
suspension that regulates spring and damper rates. A new surprising
option is the Drive Dynamic reactionary seating response that alters
cushioning during different driving conditions. The W211 is also the
first E-Class since 1985 that is equipped with two windshield wipers.

The Mercedes-Benz W211 Series AMG models include the high performance
E63, which was introduced in 2007 and is offered in saloon and station
wagon body styles. The E63 is one of the fastest sports sedans in the
world and has a high-pressure die-cast alloy cylinder block.

The Mercedes-Benz W211 Series is assembled in Austria, China, Egypt,
Iran, Malaysia and Affalterbach, Bremen, Sindelfingin, Stuttgart and
Zuffenhausen Germany.

Mercedes-Benz E-Class Overview

Since its introduction in 1976, the Mercedes-Benz E-Class has set
itself apart from its competitors in size, luxury and extraordinary
features. With Mercedes-Benz’s traditional attention to exemplary
safety-features and comfort-oriented driving, the E-Class continues to
remain at the forefront of the automotive industry.

Not as overly-engineered as other earlier Mercedes-Benz models, the
E-Class continues to offer standard safety features, including the fuel
tank placement over the rear axle, the use of high-strength steel, an
alarm system, central power locking, headlight washers, power windows,
and a front passenger presence sensor. The newest models sport new
styling and many attractive features, including electronically
controlled brakes, four-zone climate control, Drive Dynamic, front and
curtain side airbags, xenon headlamps and an adaptive suspension that
regulates spring and damper rates.

Although the Mercedes-Benz E-Class models are typically more costly
than the competition, the outstanding driving dynamics and the
traditional elegance of Mercedes continue to make the Mercedes Benz
E-Class one of the most popular vehicles in the world.

The newest Mercedes-Benz E-Class models, the W212 Series, will not be
officially unveiled until March 5th through the 15th at the 2009 Geneva
International Motor Show in Geneva, Switzerland. Any information that
is available has been leaked and cannot be considered completely
reliable until the official unveiling.

The E-Class includes the executive car, saloon, estate, station wagon
and coupe. They are assembled in Austria, China, Egypt, Iran, Malaysia
and Vietnam and in the Bremen, Stuttgart, Sindelfingin, and
Zuffenhausen, Germany plants.
