Mercedes-Benz to add petrol variants to its SUV line-up

Mercedes-Benz to add petrol variants to its SUV line-up

Mercedes-Benz will add petrol variants to its SUV line-up. It currently offers petrol options on all its vehicles expect the GLE SUV, GLS SUV as well as CLS sedan. These petrol powered models will expected to be launched later this year are expected to be locally assembled.

The petrol versions for both these cars will be the GLE400 4MATIC and GLS400 4MATIC both which have already been imported for homologation. Both cars will be offered with a 3.0-litre V6 petrol engine that 328bhp and 480Nm of torque. The CLS on the other hand will get a 3.6-litre V6 petrol engine that produces the same 328bhp and 480Nm of torque.  All three cars get the German automaker’s 4MATIC AWD system and a nine-speed AT as standard. In terms of features, appearance and design they are exactly the same as their diesel counterparts save for the badging at the rear and the side. 

The move comes on the back of uncertainty over the issue of diesel vehicles in the country. Mercedes-Benz was one of the worst hit when the ban in the NCR came into effect last year as it had been selling mostly diesel models across its range.  

However, this move to start offering petrol versions across the range is not something new for the German automaker as it had been doing exactly this for a significant period before the great diesel revolution of 2012-2013.
