Engineered to be superior, the new E-Class Saloon presents a dramatically sculpted exterior with nothing but luxury on the inside. Introducing a vast range of technological innovations, such as Active Lane-change Assistant, which allows the driver to change lanes with ease, sets the E-Class Saloon apart from the crowd.
Choose from newly engineered diesel engines such as the E 220 d, which takes economy to a new level, capable of returning 72.4 mpg, while still reaching 0 - 62mph in only 7.3 seconds. For a sportier feel, the 6-cylinder E 350 d reaches 0 - 62mph in an even quicker 5.9 seconds, still able to offer an efficient 54.3mpg combined.
Made with the ultimate sports experience in mind, DYNAMIC SELECT allows you to tailor your driving characteristics with plenty of modes to choose from: ECO, Comfort, Sport, Sport+ and Individual. Elegantly designed with superior technology, the E-Class Saloon is certainly a cut above the rest.
When it comes to safety, the E-Class Saloon goes above and beyond to provide a secure journey. Standard inclusions such as Active Brake Assist and ATTENTION ASSIST warn the driver of drowsiness, while Crosswind Assist ensures a steady ride even in high wind. The body of the car is made to be exceptionably stiff, allowing outstanding handling and a very high crash safety level.
A wealth of optional features enhances safety even further, with a particular focus on preventative measures. The DRIVE PILOT system for example, part of the Driving Assistance package, offers intelligence close to autonomous driving: Distance Pilot DISTRONIC not only keeps the car the right distance behind other vehicles, but can follow them up to speeds of 130mph, a first for the technology. Another available feature is PRE-SAFE® Sound, helping to prevent damage to your ears from the noise of a crash, for protection on all sides.
A dynamically bold design gives the E-Class Saloon a confident presence on the road, with distinguishing visual details such as a front grille strikingly set off by LED headlamps on either side. Contouring along the shoulder line provides a signature look that draws the eye back towards the powerful rear section, wraparound LED taillights providing elegant framing. Designed to be lighter than its predecessor the E-Class Saloon boasts an unparalleled aerodynamic performance.
Find an interior design to match the E-Class Saloon’s outer elegance and finesse, with rich leather upholstery combined with ambient lighting with 64 different settings creating a luxuriously comfortable, elegant driving environment. Inspired by the iconic S-Class, a wraparound dashboard unites the spacious interior. An optional 12.3-inch cockpit display creates a widescreen floating display, emphasising the horizontal orientation of the interior design and creating a look of otherworldly elegance.
EYLESS-GO start function, wireless mobile phone charging, and all-new infotainment capability are just some of the exciting technology options available with the E-Class Saloon. With a compatible phone, simply place it onto the charging pad in the centre console and touch the ‘NFC’ logo, connecting the phone to the head unit and exterior aerials through Near Field Communication (NFC) and enabling Bluetooth hands-free calling automatically.
Standard in the E 350 d model (optional on the E 220 d), a completely
new infotainment system makes its debut, with a 12.3-inch colour display and
the advanced functionality of COMAND Online system with Media Interface and
touchpad. Most notably comes the introduction of touch-sensitive buttons on the
steering wheel, allowing you to use smartphone-style finger swipes to control
the entire infotainment system without ever taking your hands off the wheel,
creating an intelligent drive experience that goes above and beyond
