This isn’t just the most advanced E-Class yet. With technologies no car before ever offered, the E-Class has written a new chapter in the story of driving: Where cars can respond to your touch and look out for your well-being in ways you never imagined.
It’s the first car that can cover your ears before a crash.
Mercedes-Benz engineers are human engineers first. When PRE-SAFE Sound senses an impending collision, it emits safe “pink noise” via the audio system to pre-trigger your ears’ natural defense against the loud noises of an accident.**
It keeps its virtual eyes on the road, and the driver.
Standard E-Class safety systems keep a constant vigil. Radar-based Active Brake Assist helps mitigate forward collisions. Blind Spot Assist and a rearview camera watch your sides and behind you. And ATTENTION ASSIST can help sense a driver getting drowsy.***
In a side impact, it’s good to have innovation on your side.
PRE-SAFE Impulse Side is an industry-first option that can help prepare you for an impending side impact. By rapidly inflating the front-seat bolster, it can move you further from an intrusion and help reduce impact forces.****
Sometimes the future is just one lane away.
Available Active Distance Assist DISTRONIC takes cruise control in a new direction: sideways. It can stop and go with the flow. Help you stay between the lines, even in curves. And change lanes with just a touch of the turn-signal lever.*****
Athletically elegant outside, it’s in the E-Class cabin where your senses come alive. Vivid screens and flowing shapes entice the eyes. And from multitouch controls to aromatherapy and a hot stone massage, wherever you touch, it caresses you back.
Make getting around easier. By getting around the guesswork.
Standard COMAND navigation helps get you where you want to go with 3D maps and lane advice before turns. The touchpad controller lets you control by tapping, twisting or even handwriting. Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto are standard, too.******
Keep the world under your thumb. And your car under your other thumb.
Two smartphone-like pads control nearly all the car’s features without taking a hand from the wheel. Swipe and select from the central screen with your right thumb. Change settings on the screen between the gauges with your left.
More than a screen. More like a screening room.
A panoramic 12.3-inch screen unites navigation, entertainment and countless comfort features. Sharper graphics and more intuitive menus are clear to the eye and the mind. A second 12.3-inch graphical instrument cluster is optional.
A cabin that follows the human form. And a century of tradition.
The E-Class cabin flows with the contours of nature. Fine-tailored seats are sculpted to match the muscles in your body. Exotic yet sustainable woods sweep door-to-door, their natural glow edge-lit by 64-colour LED ambience.
You don’t measure a car’s efficiency just at the gas pump. It’s also something you feel in its confident agility. How it moves into traffic, or negotiates a surprise. It’s how an E-Class always feels right for the times, and in the moment.
An even keel, even on choppy seas.
Available AIR BODY CONTROL turns pressurized air into poised handling and a polished ride. It’s self-leveling and adaptive, with modes for solo jaunts on twisty roads to Sunday journeys with the whole family aboard.
Hugs the road, embraces the driver.
While standard 4MATIC all-wheel drive grips the pavement, an E-Class holds its driver with equal enthusiasm. The enduring support of its ergonomically contoured and crafted seats can be further enhanced with active side bolsters.
A mode for every mood, and for every driver in you.
DYNAMIC SELECT dials in the car’s performance character with the tap of a console button. The throttle, shifting, chassis and more sharpen in Sport mode, ease up in ECO. There’s even a mode you can set up as you like.
Turbocharged torque, delivered seamlessly.
The turbo E 300 4MATIC and biturbo E 400 4MATIC squeeze more power from less fuel, atomizing every drop, and self-tuning every few milliseconds. A paddle-shifted 9-speed transmission responds quickly yet relaxes efficiently.
** Audio/multimedia system must be turned on for system to operate.
***** Active Lane Change Assist is no substitute for active driving involvement. It does not predict the curvature and lane layout of the road ahead or the movement of vehicles ahead. It is the driver’s responsibility at all times to be attentive to traffic and road conditions, and to provide the driving inputs necessary to retain control of the vehicle. System may not detect some objects, obstacles or vehicles in the area into which the vehicle would move. See Operator’s Manual for system’s operating speeds and additional information and warnings.
****** While the navigation system provides directional assistance, the driver must remain focused on safe driving behavior, including paying attention to traffic and street signs. The driver should utilize the system’s audio cues while driving and should only consult the map or visual displays once the vehicle has been stopped in a safe place. Maps do not cover all areas or all routes within an area.
