In top form. The new E-Class.
Efficient, intelligent and emotionally appealing.
CO2 emissions (combined): 246-107 g/km*
With its sharpened styling, innovative support systems and efficient engines, the new E-Class is setting the standard for the luxury class of today and tomorrow. Both the saloon and estate models of the new E-Class feature a new-look front and a sporty, yet elegant, style. Beneath that sleek exterior lies Intelligent Drive with eleven new or improved support systems from the upcoming world premiere of the S-Class.
The new E-Class is also making waves in terms of efficiency and ecology, thanks to the new powerful BlueDIRECT engines featuring sophisticated direct injection technology.
New design brings
a breath of fresh air.
The front has been completely redesigned with a fresh take on the E-Class's trademark twin headlamps. The functional elements are all concealed discreetly inside the headlamps, and are now available with full LED technology for the first time in this class. As well as the classic three-pointed star on the bonnet, the E-Class is now available with a central star on the radiator grill in the distinctive, sporty AVANTGARDE equipment line. The engine bonnet, the front and rear bumpers and features of the side line have all been reworked, as have the LED rear tail lamps.
Mercedes-Benz Intelligent Drive.
It began with PRE-SAFE® and evolved with DISTRONIC PLUS, but Mercedes-Benz is now steering towards a new dimension of driving as comfort and safety become one with Mercedes-Benz Intelligent Drive. A multitude of new or improved systems are making their world premiere in the new E-Class. At the heart of these systems are new ultra-modern sensors, such as the Stereo Multi Purpose Camera. Just like the previous Mono Multi Purpose Camera, this is fitted behind the windscreen, near the rear-view mirror. The difference, however, is that it has two 'eyes' (cameras) providing spatial vision and a full range of 500 metres. That way the stereo camera can capture data, which is then processed by a variety of systems.This means the technology can recognise objects in a wide field of vision and register their movements in spatial terms – whether it's the car in front, oncoming vehicles or those crossing your path, pedestrians and even various traffic signs or road markings.

Innovations from the
pioneers in automotive safety.
The new E-Class features ATTENTION ASSIST as standard, signalling driver inattention and drowsiness across a wider speed range than ever before. It also logs the driving time between breaks to help drivers control their fatigue. COLLISION PREVENTION ASSIST is also included as standard in many countries. Additional assistant systems, either new or with significantly refined functions, are also available as optional extras. These include, for example, DISTRONIC PLUS with steer control, BAS PLUS Brake Assist with Cross-Traffic Assist, PRE-SAFE® brakes, Active Lane Keeping Assist, Adaptive Highbeam Assist PLUS and the 360° camera. With its exceptional passive and active safety features, the new E-Class is one of the safest cars in the world.
More performance, less fuel.
The new E-Class is available with an extensive range of powerful yet efficient petrol and diesel engines. All of these feature the ECO start/stop system, making them especially fuel-efficient. New to the range is a four-cylinder petrol engine with direct injection, based on the same groundbreaking technology found in the latest six- and eight-cylinder offerings from Mercedes-Benz. All BlueDIRECT-spark ignition engines combine instant response time and exemplary performance together with maximum efficiency and the best emission performance in their class. The E 300 BlueTEC HYBRID is the latest addition to the extensive range of diesel engines. With a consumption rate of just 4.1 l/100 km and CO2 emissions of 107 g/km, the model ranks as one of the best in its class for fuel efficiency.
For a dynamic and efficient driving experience, customers can choose between a six-speed manual transmission with short shift-travel or the 7G-TRONIC PLUS automatic gearbox with DIRECT SELECT lever and DIRECT SELECT shift paddles.
All models in the E-Class family will be fitted with the electromechanical Direct-Steer system as standard. There are four suspension configurations to choose from, including AIRMATIC air suspension with electronically controlled damping system and 4MATIC permanent all-wheel drive.
This offers better traction and driving stability, especially in poor road conditions. In every configuration the new E-Class suspension is a match for even the most challenging terrain.
Feel good on the inside: The interior of the new E-Class has also been notably redesigned in harmony with the bold and expressive body. Luxury materials, neatly sectioned surfaces with precise joins and sharp radii accentuate the feel of exceptional quality throughout the vehicle's spacious interior. There are attractive equipment packages available to further enhance the look of your E-Class inside and out. Alongside the standard package, the ELEGANCE and AVANTGARDE equipment lines are also available. And the new E-Class offers a huge range of options, allowing you to customise your vehicle to an extent that has never been possible in this class before. No matter which equipment line you choose, you can opt for any additional features. That way, every vehicle can be individually tailored to the owner.
The harmonious interior is characterised by the new-look centre console and the new multifunction steering wheel.
The new E-Class comes with an extensive array of high-grade equipment as standard. One of its exciting new features is HANDS-FREE ACCESS which senses foot movements below the bumper and enables you to open and close the boot without even touching it, taking the hassle out of loading and unloading. With the state-of-the-art infotainment system, you can always keep up to date with the office or current affairs while on the move. It also enables you to listen to your favourite music and has the option of an internet connection and a high-performance satellite navigation. Google™ is just one of the integrated apps, providing a local search engine and weather information. With Google Maps you can even configure a route on your home PC and send it to your car. There are also apps for Google™ Streetview and Google™ Panoramio, plus many more available from Mercedes-Benz Accessories. The new E-Class: state-of-the-art in every way.
