Design & Comfort
The E-class Mercedes saloon is as much power as panache. The radiator grille gracefully connects with the modern with the arrow shaped styling. The bi- xenon lights help you in better vision. The lights do not just illuminate as they adjust positions to automatically suit the road. The bumper is broad and the fog lamps are embedded in it. The E-class also hosts automatic day time ‘light-emitting diode’ (LED) driving lamps that enhance the visibility of your vehicle further when you are driving during the daytime. The wheels of this luxury saloon are made from light alloys that make driving smoother. They are light yet offer greater strength. Furthermore, there are wheel spoilers on the front and rear wheels that improve performance by increasing airflow around the tyres thus reducing lift. If parking is a pain in the neck for you, then the E-class makes parking a cakewalk. Parktronic, the advanced guidance system that helps you park the vehicle, uses six ultrasonic sensors that render audio and visual assistance for vehicle parking. It gets automatically activated when the speed is below 35km/h.
The front seats offer many ‘adjust options’ to provide you with optimum support. For rear seat passengers, there is a lot of legroom. Additional foam is inserted under the leather seat covers for better ergonomics. The shock absorbers adapt to the driving situation and thus help in better stabilization of the vehicle on poor road surfaces. The Mercedes E class is also equipped with a direct-steer system that reduces the need for more steering when being parking. The climate control system for the saloon, other than offering temperature settings for the driver, front passenger and rear passengers, also allows different climatization modes. There is also a Bluetooth enabled communication feature that makes communication and telematics a unique experience while driving the E-class.
The E-class comes with an engine that not only makes driving smoother, but also offers greater eco-efficiency along with increased agility. The 3L V6 engine generates a torque of 540 Nm at 1600-2400 rpm and produces 231bhp.
The Mercedes E-class saloon hosts myriad safety features that harness the latest technological advancements. It has a new adaptive main beam assist system that deploys a camera mounted on the windscreen to recognize approaching traffic to adjust the headlights so that their beams do not reach the other vehicle. To give you better safety while driving on the lane, the saloon also houses the blind spot assist system that gives gentle vibrations on the steering wheel when the driver inadvertently leaves the lane. Another new safety feature is the speed limit assist system that captures speed limit signs and then reflects it on the speedometer. The attention assist system also provides a warning if it detects the driver to be distracted or drowsy. Another cutting edge element is the radar based assistance system, which is optional. It either partially activates the break or proceeds with emergency parking if it detects an impending collision.
