Mercedes Benz E-Class Interior: Exclusive Style, High-Quality Materials
Mercedes-Benz has carefully revised the interior of the E-Class in such a way that, together with the expressive, modern exterior, it forms a harmonious unit. The new, two-part trim on the dashboard is what first catches the eye: it stretches across the entire width of the interior and as such visually underscores the generous sense of space. It is bordered by a high-quality silver chrome frame and, in conjunction with all of the high-quality materials available for the trim, creates a consistent overall look.
Other eye-catching elements include the instrument cluster and high-gloss framed central display. In the standard and ELEGANCE line models, the instrument cluster features black backplates, while the AVANTGARDE line models have silver backplates. A new design for the air vents, an analogue clock between the two central air vents as well as redesigned controls beneath the head unit all serve to highlight the overall high-quality feel of the interior of the new Mercedes-Benz E-Class. Precise joints and carefully defined curves also make a contribution in this respect too.
An enhanced sense of perceived quality also comes courtesy of the surfaces in the interior of the new E-Class. In all equipment variants they feature a fine grain which boasts a high-quality look and feel and is not only elegant to look at but also easy to clean.
Contributing to the harmonious and at the same time functional appeal of the interior is the redesigned centre console. In conjunction with the automatic transmission, besides the controller for the infotainment system there is also no longer a selector lever positioned here. Instead, the automatic transmission is operated via the DIRECT SELECT lever and shift paddles on the new multifunction steering wheel. In the horizontal part of the centre console there is therefore plenty of space for stowage facilities. The controls are clearly arranged and generously designed in silver chrome.
The steering column benefits from an extended, generous adjustment range. It can be individually positioned by plus/minus 25 mm in terms of height, as well as 15 mm forwards and 35 mm backwards in terms of length.
The seats of the new E-Cass not only fulfils a number of ergonomic requirements but at the same time its contouring helps to enhance the high-class appeal. The taut bolsters on the armrests and seat cushions help to ensure secure lateral support. The driver’s seat and front passenger seat can be electrically adjusted for height, backrest angle and seat cushion angle.
Additional comfort functions are also offered by the Memory package for driver and front passenger, which individually stores the settings for the fully power-adjustable front seats, front headrests, steering column and exterior mirrors for each user and enables them to be automatically called up again.
The spacious rear seats provide room for three occupants as standard in the form of a bench seat with three rear headrests, an armrest with stowage compartment and twin cup holder as well as ISOFIX child seat anchor points on the outer seats, with additional anchor points above on the rear seat backrest.
