E-Class Technical Highlights:

  • PRE-SAFE® Sound: omits a short interference signal if an imminent collision is detected, triggering a protective reflex in the human ear referred to as the "stapedius reflex," which can help reduce hearing loss in the event of an accident
  • DRIVE PILOT, including:
    • Distance Pilot DISTRONIC® is now able to follow a vehicle in front at a pre-selected distance at speeds up to 130 mph
    • Steering Pilot functions at speeds up to 130 mph in ideal conditions and can now actively intervene even if road lines are unclear or non-existent at speeds up to 81 mph
    • Active Lane-change Assist: radar-and-camera-based system that aids the driver when changing lanes—when overtaking, for example. When a turn is indicated for at least two seconds, Active Lane-change Assist will aid with steering into the adjacent lane if it detects the lane is empty
    • Active Brake Assist w/ Cross-Traffic Function
  • Evasive Steering Assist: when a driver deliberately or instinctively performs an evasive maneuver, this system assists by adding calculated steering torque to aid in steering wheel movement
  • Car-to-X communication: Available later this year, the world's first fully-integral Car-to-X solution going into series production; the E-Class simultaneously acts as a receiver and transmitter, conveying warning messages and evaluating driving conditions, effectively allowing the driver to "see around corners" and "through obstacles"
  • PRE-SAFE® Impulse Side: if a lateral collision is detected, the system preventatively moves the driver or front passenger up to 2.75-inches away from the impact zone to the side by rapidly inflating the seat's side bolster, reducing the load on the occupant during an accident
  • Touch Control Buttons: touch-sensitive controls on the steering wheel for instrument cluster and infotainment system control, similar to a smart-phone interface, which respond to vertical and horizontal swiping movements
  • Segment-leading, next-gen, high-resolution 12.3" infotainment display with advanced, simplified user interface
  • AIR BODY CONTROL: Available multi-chamber air suspension at all corners
  • Ambient lighting in 64 colors thanks to energy-saving LED  technology
  • Warmth and Comfort Package: (segment exclusive) offers heated door armrests, center console, steering wheel and rapidly-heating front seats

Model Positioning:

  • The all-new 2017 E-Class Sedan and Wagon are the most advanced vehicles the Mercedes-Benz product portfolio. The 10th generation (sedan version) of one of the world’s most successful vehicles launches with several world-premiere technologies, an all-new emotional design both inside and out, and top levels of comfort, luxury and safety.
  • The Mercedes-AMG E43 Sedan, the first high-performance variant of the E-Class developed by Mercedes AMG, boasts an AMG-enhanced 3.0L V6 biturbo engine, dynamic drive qualities and top-levels of technology.
  • The Mercedes-AMG E63 S Sedan is the most powerful E-Class variant of all time. The versatile AMG 4.0L V8 biturbo engine in the E63 S Sedan takes peak performance to a new level at 603 hp. A sprint from zero to 60 mph takes only 3.3 seconds, and this dynamic acceleration only ends at the governed top speed of 186 mph.
