Inside the cabin, the new E-Class offers the latest in luxury conveniences and design cues borrowed from the flagship S-Class limousine, showcased by the fully digital dashboard that consists of two 12.3-inch monitors, one for the main instrument cluster and the other for the comprehensive array of multi-media, vehicle, connectivity and navigation settings.
Both screens may be tailored to suit driver preferences with the instrument cluster altered through Classic, Sport and Progressive settings.
Unique to the E-Class, the steering wheel has innovative laser-guided touch pads on the horizontal spokes of the steering wheel that, along with the touch pad on top of the rotary dial in the centre console and voice activation, allow the driver to control functions within the E-Class’s COMAND infotainment system via a swipe of their thumb.
The centre console also features a wireless charging pad for mobile devices with a
USB connector for Apple CarPlay® or Android Auto smartphone mirroring within the infotainment system.
Like the S-Class, the new E comes with LED ambient lighting in the cabin, but improves the system with a total of 64 possible hues. It can also be equipped with a high-end 1450W Burmester 3D surround-sound audio system with 23 speakers.
Just as Albert Einstein did, Mercedes has given the E an all-new definition, and one that is destined to change the laws of physics when it comes to luxury motoring.
