The new E-Class is the powerfully convincing result of the new Mercedes-Benz design philosophy. It is the embodiment of ultra-modern stylishness and refined sportiness, and is unparalleled in the premium saloon segment. Its design unifies modest elegance yet powerful presence in every line - with an astonishing lightness of touch.
Your high standards are reflected in face of the new E-Class. The long, sweeping bonnet, upright-looking headlamps and emphatically broad front aspect with large air intakes all promise refined sportiness.
The 2019 E-Class model now comes with an additional €2,781 optional extras as standard. These include; Widescreen Cockpit Display, Blind Spot Assist, Vehicle Setup and Vehicle Monitoring as well as USB ports in the rear.
In addition to the standard specification there are three design and equipment lines to choose from:
EXCLUSIVE Exterior is an ultra-modern and luxurious looking line, with an upgraded front bumper, classical radiator trim, the Mercedes star on the bonnet, additional chrome trim elements and larger-sized alloy wheels.
The AVANTGARDE Exterior line gives the exterior a more dynamic and a sportier look. This is thanks to, for instance, the larger-sized alloy wheels, a free-standing front bumper and design elements in chrome and aluminium. The lowered AGILITY CONTROL suspension also emphasises the sporty look.
The AMG Line Exterior line offers even more sportiness and performance, with perfectly matching appointments – from the dynamic-looking AMG bodystyling to the AMG alloy wheels and the lowered AGILITY CONTROL suspension.
Take A Closer Look
A choice of refined diesel engines includes the E 220 d, which can return a remarkable 72.4 mpg combined with CO2 emissions as low as 102 g/km. Sprinting from 0 to 62 mph takes just 7.3 seconds.
Producing up to 620 Nm of torque, the 6-cylinder E 350 d is quicker still, clocking 0 to 62 mph in just 5.9 seconds. Yet it too offers impressive fuel economy, returning up to 54.3 mpg combined.
Both engines are paired with the new 9G-TRONIC PLUS 9-speed automatic transmission. Gear ratios are calibrated for optimum efficiency and responsiveness, while fast, almost imperceptible gear changes ensure minimum vibration and maximum comfort.
It also allows multiple downshifts for a more sporty drive while DYNAMIC SELECT lets you adjust driving characteristics with a choice of modes: ECO, Comfort, Sport, Sport+ and Individual.
It is inherent in the architecture of a vehicle that the sides tend to be particularly exposed in the event of a collision. So how can the driver and front passenger be offered even better protection? Our engineers rose to this challenge and came up with PRE-SAFER impulse side. When a side collision is identified as being unavoidable, the newly developed system controls the inflation of air chambers in the seat’s side bolster. This takes place in a fraction of a second. This impulse preventively moves the upper body towards the centre of the car, so that the distance from the door can be increased. A world-first that augments the PRE-SAFER systems to provide 360° all-round protection.
A sound solution for the future. The human ear is exposed to noise levels in an accident. We have developed a technology that can provide vehicle occupants’ inner ears with advance warning: PRE-SAFER Sound. Upon the vehicle’s sensors detecting an impending collision, a short noise signal is output via the vehicle’s audio system. This triggers a reflex in the inner ear: the stapedius muscle contracts, briefly reducing the ear drum’s level of contact with the inner ear. As a result, the inner ear is prepared for the impending situation and thus protected more effectively from high sound pressure levels.
