Mercedes has released pricing details for the new Mercedes-Benz E-Class. The ten different models range in cost from €41,590.50 for the E220 up to €70,269.50 for the E500 4matic.

MB still has two four-cylinder models, a petrol and diesel, still under wraps. Those two will be released sometime this fall.

The German automaker claims they wanted to keep pricing as close as possible to the last generation, despite adding several new features. Fuel efficiency has been improved across the entire line, even on the three models using the 4matic all-wheel-drive system. Adaptive shock absorbers, fatigue recognition, daytime running lights, Bluetooth, and a new color display all come as standard equipment.

E-class cars with either a V6 or V8 also get direct steering, and a seven-speed automatic transmission. Top-of-the-line E500 eight-cylinder also gets pneumatic suspension and a damping system.

The Elegance and AvantGarde packages also keep the same pricing: €1,921.85 for the first, and €3,361.75 for the second. Elegance includes ambient lighting, burr-walnut wood trim, 10-spoke 16" alloys, and new seats. A new front-end, sports suspension, bi-xenon headlights, LED daytime lights, LED taillights, and 17-inch light alloys come with the AvantGarde package.

AMG Sports package variants start at €2,915 and climbs to €4,046, depending on the E-Class model. This does not include labor costs. It comes with new bumpers, side skirts, sport seats, and 18-inch light alloys. Meanwhile, the €4,284 Exclusive package includes a leather upholstery, wood & leather steering wheel, Alcantara roof, and an upholstered instrument panel.

A Lane assist system and a system to prevent rear-end collisions are also available as options.
