Vehicle Profile: 2017 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Sedan
E-class the world-wide standard of excellence
The Mercedes-Benz E-Class is one of the most respected automobiles in the world and has set the standard for luxury and intelligent performance for decades. For 2017, the E-Class is all-new and full of impressive enhancements and world’s-first technology.
“The E-Class is the core of the Mercedes-Benz Brand,” said Prof. Dr. Thomas Weber, a member of the board of management of Daimler AG. “Now it carries this tradition into the future.”
Driver assistance, safety and communications systems define state of the art, with a high-resolution double display, an infotainment system controlled by touch and swipes, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, and exclusive driver aids that include DRIVE PILOT, Distance Pilot DISTRONIC, a suite of active lane-keeping and braking systems, and the latest generation of PRE-SAFE protection. And those are just for starters.

It makes difficult road conditions easy, and the accompanying 4ETS electronic traction system keeps tight control over wheel-spin, so your forward progress stays smooth and steady. Electromechanical power steering is standard, providing enhanced agility and comfortable handling. A Direct-Steer system works together with available driver assistance systems, such as Active Park Assist.
The 2017 E-Class is the only automobile in the segment to offer an air suspension; available AIR BODY CONTROL is an adaptable, self-leveling multi-chamber suspension system that provides agile handling with exceptional comfort. Conventionally sprung suspension choices include two systems that use selective damping.
All exterior lighting is by efficient, bright LED, and Mercedes-Benz engineers developed new technology for adjusting the illumination level of the tail lamps to better match the conditions. No stone has been left un-turned in the effort to make the E-Class the most advanced car on the road today.
Standard features include alloy wheels, real wood trim, power-operated front seats with memory, and dual-zone climate control. The COMAND system with hard-drive navigation can also operate as a Wi-Fi hotspot, so everyone in the car can stay connected while you travel.
The 2017 E300 4MATIC Sedan is powered by an all-new turbocharged and direct-injected 2.0-litre four cylinder engine that’s efficient and strong. It generates 241 horsepower and 273 lb-ft of torque.
