This isn't just the most advanced E-Class yet. With technologies never before offered on a production car, the E-Class writes another chapter in the story of driving: Where cars can talk to each other, and look out for you, in ways you never imagined.
You can't see around corners. But your E-Class can.
Groundbreaking "Car-to-X" technology connects your E-Class to a central information resource, to send you in-car updates about driving conditions before you get to them. Your car can also report hazards, to help other drivers with Car-to-X
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.
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.
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. Sharp graphics and intuitive menus are clear to the eye and the mind. A second 12.3-inch graphical instrument cluster is optional.
Make getting around easier. By getting around the guesswork.
Turbocharged torque, delivered seamlessly.
The turbo E 300 and biturbo E 450 squeeze more power from less fuel, atomizing and itemizing every drop, and self-tuning every few milliseconds. A paddle-shifted 9-speed transmission responds quickly yet relaxes efficiently.
Hugs the road, embraces the driver.
While the E-Class passionately grips the pavement, it holds its favorite driver with equal affection. 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.
An even keel, even on choppy seas.
Available 4MATIC® all-wheel drive responds instantly to the grip at each wheel. Self-leveling, multimode AIR BODY CONTROL® turns is an optional suspension that turns pressurized air into poised handling and a polished ride.
Standard COMAND® navigation helps get you where you want to go with 3D maps, live traffic, web-based HERE™ Local Search, and lane advice before turns. The touchpad controller lets you control by tapping, twisting or even handwriting.
A cabin that follows the human form. And a century of tradition.
The E-Class cabin flows with the contours of nature. Finely 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-color 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.
