New E-Class is the tenth-generation of Mercedes-Benz business saloon. It marks the world premiere of numerous technical innovations. Performed in coupe style, the new E-Class stands out in stylish and sporty exterior design at the same time staying loyal to its style.
Diesel engine coupled with lightweight design and record-breaking aerodynamics figures, sets the standard for efficiency in this segment. The new multi-chamber air suspension ensures outstanding ride comfort and driving dynamics. The sum total of its innovations, including the Active Lane-change Assistant which allows the driver to steer into the selected lane as if by magic, makes the E-Class the most intelligent saloon in the business class.
In addition, Touch Controls on the steering wheel make their first appearance in a car. Like a smartphone interface, they respond precisely to horizontal and vertical swiping movements, allowing the driver to control the entire infotainment system using finger swipes without having to take their hands off the steering wheel. This system takes minimum drivers' attention leaving them focused on the road. Further controls for the infotainment system are provided in the shape of a touchpad with controller, direct-access buttons for controlling functions such as the air-conditioning system or convenient activation and deactivation of certain driver assistance systems.
A new, intelligent graphic design with high-resolution visualisations and animations, together with a simplified logic, further enhances this all-new operating experience. At the same time, the occupants enjoy a sensual interior with spacious architecture. The new E-Class is sophisticated, confidently stylish and sporty. For instance, seats of the new E-class come as the real highlight. Their ergonomic, sculptural form combines Mercedes-Benz’s hallmark suitability for long journeys with a refined, sporty look, featuring a unique design for each line.
Compared with its predecessor, new E-Class wheelbase length has grown by 65 millimetres and its overall length by 43 millimetres. The elongated bonnet coupled with a coupé-esque roof flowing into a sensual, broad-shouldered tail end creates an exciting silhouette. The powerfully extended vehicle body is characterised by short overhangs, a long wheelbase, large wheels and taut, well-defined flanks displaying a fresh, stylish and dynamic interpretation of the feature line. All of which allows the E-Class to deliver the perfect take on the Mercedes-Benz design philosophy. The philosophy that is described by creators of major trendsetters in the global world of vehicles as the aspiration for 'Sensual Purity'.
