Replacing the E 350 d, the E 400 d 4MATIC features a 3.0-litre inline diesel engine - codenamed OM656 - which generates 340 hp and 700 Nm. The coupe can sprint from 0 to 62 mph in 5.1 seconds, while the cabriolet takes 5.2 seconds. Both have a top speed of 155 mph.

The CLS 350 features an all-new four-cylinder petrol engine capable of producing 299hp and 400 Nm and emits 162g/km which equates to 39.8 mpg. It has an electronically limited top speed of 155 mph and can travel from 0 to 62 mph in 6.0 seconds.

The E 350 d 4MATIC All-Terrain has now been replaced by the E 400 d 4MATIC All-Terrain which also features the 3.0-litre inline six-cylinder engine, generating 340hp and 700 Nm of torque.

It can reach 62 mph from standstill in 5.4 seconds, and has a top speed of 155 mph.

The E 400 d 4MATIC All-Terrain comes with air suspension, the Mercedes Multibeam LED Intelligent Light System, a panoramic sunroof and a tow bar as standard as well as a surround-view camera and wireless phone charging.
