German luxury carmaker, Mercedes Benz is prepping to introduce the diesel variant of the new S-Class in the Indian market on June 5, 2014. Just like its petrol sibling that was launched earlier this year, the S350 CDI will also be assembled at the Merc’s plant in Chakan near Pune and will command a price of Rs 1 crore and above.

Under the hood of the S350 CDI is a 3.0-litre V6 diesel powerplant that is able to churn out 258PS of max power and 620Nm of peak torque. The engine comes mated to a 7G-Tronic Plus automatic transmission. Apart from the powertrain, the S350 CDI is identical to the S55 is most aspects, except that the diesel trim has ditched few creature comforts. For instance, the rear seats will be a bench, instead of the two individual seats seen in the S500 and the cabin gets plain leather upholstery. The saloon will also forgo the night vision camera and the chilling/heating cup holders for the rear. 

The bookings for the all-new S-Class saloon have already begun in the country across all Merc showrooms with a down payment of Rs 5 lakh. Deliveries of the car is expected to commence in July 2014. In the Indian market the S350 CDI will compete with the likes of Audi A8L, 3.0 TDI Quattro, BMW 730Ld and the Jaguar 3.0 V6.
