Engineered to be the most intelligent luxury sedan on the road
With a long history of pioneering automotive firsts that eventually become industry standards, Mercedes-Benz takes engineering leadership to the next level with the introduction of the all-new 2017 Mercedes Benz E-Class Sedan. Featuring a new level of safe driving, a new dimension in driver assistance innovations and a new infotainment system, the 2017 E-Class luxury sedan is incredibly intelligent.
The five-passenger 2017 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Sedan moves the automotive industry closer to autonomous driving, helping to reduce driver stress while enhancing efficiency, safety and driving pleasure.
The 2017 E-Class will debut with a turbocharged 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine. Both powerful and efficient, the four-cylinder sends 241 horsepower and 273 lb-ft of torque through a new nine-speed 9G-TRONIC automatic transmission that enables quick shifts and low engine RPMs on the highway for improved fuel economy and reduced interior noise. The 4MATIC® all-wheel drive system will also make its appearance.
For outstanding ride quality, the 2017 E-Class can be equipped with either DIRECT CONTROL Comfort or Sport suspension, as well as a segment-exclusive AIR BODY CONTROL air suspension system. The AIR BODY CONTROL system automatically adjusts to road conditions and vehicle speed, and it automatically levels the vehicle based on weight distribution. Ride height can be lowered on highways for improved aerodynamics, and raised on rougher roads.
Overall length is increased by 43 mm and the wheelbase is 66 mm longer as compared to the previous E-Class Sedan, with an elongated hood and a flowing roofline that flows seamlessly into a broad and powerful looking rear end with short overhangs. Drivers can choose the Luxury trim, with a classic chrome grille and Mercedes-Benz Star emblem on the hood, or the Sport trim, which integrates a prominent Mercedes-Benz Star into the grille itself.
The new E-Class cabin reflects a focus on premium luxury and industry-leading intelligence, a highlight of which is a next-generation, 12.3-inch high-resolution display – a segment-first that integrates with a traditional gauge cluster. Touch-sensitive steering wheel control buttons that respond to Smartphone-like swiping motions are an industry first, and they enable drivers to control the entire infotainment system without ever taking hands off the steering wheel.
Like every Mercedes-Benz, the 2017 E-Class Sedan is finished with the highest-grade materials and handcrafted execution. There are Natural Grain Ash wood interior trim panels, and the redesigned, premium-leather-upholstered seats are more sculpted and ergonomic than ever, ideal for long journeys. The rear seats have also been redesigned, with a new three-piece backrest that splits 40/20/40 for outstanding versatility.
The 2017 Mercedes-Benz E-Class offers a host of advanced driver-assistance technology, including the new PRE-SAFE® Sound, which emits a short interference signal through the audio system if a risk of collision is detected. This sound triggers a natural reflex in the human ear, alerting the driver to a potential accident. ATTENTION ASSIST® is also standard, which warns the driver of drowsiness or distraction.
Peerless Mercedes-Benz innovation is reflected in the 2017 E-Class Sedan in many ways, the most remarkable of which may be the Driver Assistance Package Plus, which features DRIVE PILOT, a system that can automatically follow traffic in front of the vehicle without the driver operating the brake or accelerator, and Steering Pilot, which can automatically steer the vehicle in certain conditions. Combined with safety features like Active Lane-Change Assist, Evasive Steering Assist and Active Brake Assist, the 2017 E-Class Sedan is truly the most intelligent in the segment and represents a new level of autonomous driving technology.
Parking the E-Class is more convenient than ever thanks to Remote Parking Pilot, an industry-first that allows the vehicle to be moved in and out of spaces remotely using a Smartphone app. With the new Car-to-X communication system – another pioneering technology never before seen in a production vehicle – the 2017 E-Class can use a paired Smartphone to communicate with other vehicles farther up the road, enabling both vehicle and driver to see around corners and detect obstacles in advance. This gives drivers an earlier warning of imminent danger.
Available this summer, the 2017 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Sedan will change the automotive industry with never-before seen innovations. What will remain unchanged about the 2017 E-Class are its luxury, refinement, elegance and performance. Contact us today for more details and updates on availability.
