The Classy New Mercedes E Class Interior
These are the first shots of the new Mercedes E Class interior, which will debut alongside the rest of the car at the Detroit Motor Show in January.
Those screens sure looks big, don’t they? In front of the driver there’s not one, but two adjacent 12.3″ screens merging to create a huge widescreen display
It’ll be a fully configurable system, and you’ll be able to choose from one of three designs: Classic, Sport or Progressive. Other features will include a sat-nav map that will show nearest petrol stations with current prices(!)
Other new toys include small touchpads on the steering wheel allowing the driver to control the infotainment system with smartphone style swiping. As with the C-Class, there’ll be a touchpad on the centre console too.
Framing all of this is the new dashboard, which wraps around from door to door and backlights the new widescreen display to give a modern floating effect. All the lighting is LED based, and you’ll be able to customise it with a choice of 64 colours. The optional monster Burmester 3D surround sound system and its door mounted tweeters and roof mounted speakers are also ringed with light.
Another highlight is the seats, with a sporty look built to be sat in comfortably for long journeys. And, according to Mercedes, thinner construction means you’ll get three inches more knee room in the back.
“With the new E Class interior, we are giving a new interpretation to the concept of contemporary luxury. We have designed a spacious and intelligent interior. True to Mercedes-Benz’s design philosophy of sensual purity, it employs technological innovation and high-grade equipment to create an exceptionally emotive experience for driver and front passenger. The E-Class this not onl sets a new standard in the business class. Alongside a workplace and private environment, it also becomes a “third place” – a living area in which passengers are able to enjoy contemporary luxury.” – Harmut Sinkwitz, Head of Mercedes-Benz Interior Design
