People in China like big, comfortable, sedans with a big rear-seat legroom. That is why you can (only in China) buy Long wheelbase versions of the mid size luxury sedans like the Audi A6L, BMW 5 series Long, or the new Mercedes E-class Long.

This Mercedes is 140mm longer than the basic European version. It comes with only one, small 4 cylinder 2.0 l engine.

The basic E200 L version has 184 hp and 300 Nm of torque. It can do 0-100 km/h in 8.6 s. Top speed: 235 km/h.

Then there is the E 300 L version which has 245 hp and 370 Nm of torque. This „tuned“ version can do 0-100 km/h in 6.9 s. Top speed: 250 km/h.

Both versions are mated to a 9 speed automatic gearbox. The basic E200 L version is available for $65 648, the E300 L for sale for $71 359 and the well equipped Luxury model costs $75 116.

This long wheelbase E-class is 5065 mm long and the standard wheelbase S-class is 5116 mm, so its only 51 mm longer!
