New Mercedes E-Class in Avantgarde and AMG Line trims, upgraded features
The Mercedes E-Class has been updated. Now available in Mercedes E 200 Avantgarde and E 300 AMG Line, enhancements include exterior and interior upgrades with improved features, new interfaces and more premium materials. There are also two new paint colours: grey metallic and high-tech silver.
Both models have a new rear bumper, split tail lamps and a new boot lid. The tail lights also have a new light pattern. For the Mercedes E 200 Avantgarde there is a new design front grille, LED headlights and bonnet as well as 18-inch 5-twin spoke light alloy wheels. The Mercedes E 300 AMG Line gets a new AMG Performance-style bumper and 19-inch AMG 5-twin-spoke light-alloy wheels. The Multibeam LED headlamps now includes Ultra Range high beam.
Interior changes include a new leather multifunction steering wheel with high-gloss black control surfaces. The E 200 has light longitudinal-grain aluminium trim while the E300 gets open-pore ash wood trim.
The instrument cluster and the media display are controlled by swiping along capacitive Touch Control buttons are less susceptible to fingerprints. The latest generation MBUX multimedia system (Mercedes-Benz User Experience) is displayed on the Widescreen Cockpit, which includes the instrument cluster and on the media display on two high-resolution 12.3 inch screens.
The sporty front seats provide strong lateral support. The seat contour follows side bolsters and, depending on the specification, the centre section has transverse or modern longitudinal seams. The colours of the centre sections of the seat backrest and cushion are matched to the overall sculpture of the seats. There are numerous material combinations ranging from ARTICO man-made leather in the E 200 Avantgarde Line to genuine leather in the E 300 AMG Line.
The new E-Class has the latest generation of driving assistance systems with a high level of active safety so the car is able to react if the driver doesn’t. The hands-off recognition now works on a capacitive basis. This enhances user-friendliness when driving in semi-automated mode. To inform the assistance systems that the driver still has control of the E-Class, a slight steering movement was previously required as feedback.
The new steering wheel now features a pad with the appropriate sensors in the rim. The sensors register whether the driver is holding the wheel. If the system detects that the driver does not have their hands on the steering wheel for a certain time, a warning cascade is started, which finally activates Emergency Brake Assist if the driver continues to be inactive.
As standard, the E-Class comes with Active Brake Assist, which in many situations is able to use autonomous braking to prevent a collision or mitigate its severity. The system is also able to brake for stationary vehicles and crossing pedestrians at typical city speeds and even to prevent collisions, depending on the situation. As part of the Driving Assistance Package, this is now also possible when turning off across the oncoming lane.
Active Parking Assist with PARKTRONIC and 360° camera on the E 300 AMG Line makes it possible to enter and leave parking spaces automatically. The system facilitates the search for and selection of a parking space as well as entering and leaving (if the vehicle was parked automatically) parallel and end-on parking spaces or garages. For the first time, the new E-Class is able to recognise and use parking spaces which are only marked as areas on larger sites, for example. The 360° camera on the E 300 transmits an even more realistic image to the media display, which includes an expanded side view. When leaving a parking space, the system is able to warn of traffic crossing behind the vehicle and can apply the brakes in case of doubt.
The E 300 AMG Line comes with Driving Assistance package Active Distance Assist DISTRONIC, Active Steering Assist, Active Brake Assist, Active Lane Keeping Assist, Active Blind Spot Assist and PRE-SAFE® PLUS.
