Here are the exclusive features that make this vehicle stand out in the Chinese market.

Visual Elegance

The E-Class L carries over all the visually striking features of its standard form. However, it has been tweaked to showcase longer rear doors, thicker C-pillars, and a unique emblem on the D-pillars, giving it a bit of a Maybach vibe.

The elongated design adds 5.6 inches to the standard model’s length, resulting in an impressive 200.4 inches overall. The exquisite exterior boasts a classic star emblem on the grille, LED taillights, and distinctive puddle lights.

For those seeking a sportier edge, the AMG Line offers a model-specific illuminated grille and sportier bumpers.

Interior Opulence

Stepping inside, the new E-Class L maintains the elegance of its exterior. The cabin features a dashboard carried over from the E-Class, boasting a hyperscreen with region-specific graphics and applications.

However, the true luxury is reserved for rear passengers, who will revel in the increased knee room, reclining backrests, and electrically adjustable leg rests. The rear headrests are equipped with a neck-heating function, while an armrest houses a dual-phone wireless charging pad for added convenience.

Additionally, the high-end Burmester sound system, complete with seat vibration effects, promises an auditory experience like no other.

Enhanced Comfort and Functionality

The rear passengers of the 2024 E-Class L are truly pampered with an exclusive feature. A dedicated button allows for the electric folding of the front passenger seat, providing passengers with the freedom to stretch their legs while being chauffeured.

Meanwhile, the door cards feature ambient lighting strips that add a premium touch, running upwards and behind the rear headrests. It’s worth noting though that this exclusive model doesn’t incorporate extra displays for rear-seat passengers.

Powerful Performance

In China, the E-Class L comes with a 4-cylinder powertrain offered in two configurations—the E270L with 201 horsepower and the more potent E300L with 255 horsepower. This powerhouse is complemented by air suspension and rear-wheel steering, ensuring a smooth and dynamic driving experience.

Final Thoughts

The 2024 Mercedes-Benz E-Class L, tailor-made for Chinese customers who prefer to be chauffeured, is a testament to its brand’s commitment to providing unparalleled luxury and comfort. With its distinctive design and exclusive amenities, this extended-wheelbase executive sedan sets a new standard in opulence.

The market launch date and pricing for the model are yet to be announced, but it’s expected to hit the Chinese market soon. There are also plans to expand the car to the Indian market in the latter half of 2024.
