These enhancements work together to provide the vehicle with maximum performance while maintaining outstanding efficiency.

Meanwhile, the Pinnacle trim starting at $62,700 builds upon the former with additional multimedia, connectivity, and comfort features. It should be noted that the prices mentioned excludes the $1,150 for the destination and delivery charges Mercedes collects from buyers.
