Nearly two years after making its global debut, the refreshed 2022 Mercedes-Benz E-Class has finally landed in the Philippines. The facelift brings with it upgraded standard equipment, added tech and safety features, as well as a standard AMG Line package.
The German automaker played it safe with the redesign of the E-Class by giving it a slightly wider grille and new LED headlights upfront. The side profile remains largely unchanged, while the most noticeable changes to the E-Class were made at the back. This includes a new pair of slimmer and wider LED taillights that are similar to what you’ll find in the CLS four-door coupe.
Interior changes are even more minimal, as these are limited to a new and interesting steering wheel design along with the implementation of the automaker’s MBUX touchpad-based infotainment system. As standard, the E-Class is fitted with two 12.3-inches, along with a Burmester surround sound system, combination Artico Leather and Dinamica Microfiber seats, Nappa Leather steering wheel, 64-color ambient LED lighting, powered rear sunblinds, AMG sports pedals, just to name a few.
On sale in the Philippines is the E 200 AMG Line, which means this comes with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbo gasoline engine that produces 197 horsepower and 320 Nm of torque. This is sent to the rear wheels via a nine-speed automatic. With this engine, 0-100 kph happens in 7.4 seconds.
For the Philippine market, the E 200 AMG Line’s driver-assistance features come in the form of the Pre-Safe, which blends automatic emergency braking along with the ability to tighten the seatbelts and close any open windows to minimize the amount of debris entering the vehicle. There’s also Active Park Assist autonomous parking, along with Attention Assist drowsiness detection.
The 2022 Mercedes-Benz E-Class is now on sale in the Philippines for P5,390,000 for this sole E 200 AMG Line variant.
