A masterpiece of technology. A working work of art.
Since its inception, the E-Class has been more than a car model. It’s a role model that inspires every automaker with breakthroughs in safety, innovations in luxury, and ever-more rewarding performance. It’s a supermodel that makes the highway feel like a fashion-show runway, its lines and fine tailoring revealing new directions in style. For 2017, an entirely new E-Class once again advances the automobile, and accelerates driving passion.
The 10th generation E-Class takes on a new shape that’s roomier inside, sleeker outside and stronger all over. With 6.5 cm more wheelbase and classic proportions, sculpted elegance takes on a sporty stance. Expressive LED headlights flow seamlessly into the side profile, which culminates in muscular rear shoulders and glistening LED taillights.
The advanced E 300 4MATIC engine squeezes more performance from less fuel. The 2.0-litre four’s twin-scroll turbo quickly spins up to 230,000 rpm to put all 273 lb-ft of torque on tap from just 1,300 rpm. Rapid-multispark ignition and high-pressure Direct Injection can fine-tune their response with millisecond speed. An ECO Start/Stop system can save fuel and emissions at stoplights.
Heated power front seats include power lumbar support and 3-position memory, along with sensuous tailoring that follows the sculpture of the human form. Available luxuries include Climate Comfort ventilation and Drive-Dynamic multicontour support whose soothing massage feature now includes several “Hot stone” treatments.The steering wheel and even the front armrests are available heated as well.
In addition to the standard 12.3″ central display, a 12.3″ widescreen instrument cluster is also available. It lets the driver select any of three gauge designs, each with its own combination of analogue-style readouts and animated graphics. An available Head-Up Display projects useful information in the driver’s natural field of vision by “floating” over the hood. The full-colour graphical display can show navigation info, driving speed and more.
