Mercedes-Benz has completely revised the Saloon and Estate models of the E-Class. As a result, the new E-Class has made a significant step forward when it comes to efficiency and ecology. This comes courtesy of new, powerful BlueDIRECT four-cylinder petrol engines featuring sophisticated direct injection technology, a new, efficient six-cylinder engine as well as even more economical diesel engines.
In both the Saloon and Estate models, new or optimised assistance systems from the future S-Class are celebrating their world premiere. This powerful development boost is reflected to exciting effect in the design of the Mercedes-Benz E-Class. With a new front, new bumpers, and revised side view, it encapsulates efficiency, intelligence and emotional appeal in a visually superior manner. In this way the E-Class is securing its leading position in the luxury class vehicle sector at the very highest level, dynamically elegant, it combines intelligent technology with superior style.
The Saloon and Estate are continuing the success story of the Mercedes-Benz E-Class. More than 600,000 examples of the current E-Class Saloon model series have been sold worldwide, and no fewer than 100,000 customers have already opted for the latest version of the Estate. The models of the E-Class are therefore making a significant contribution to the growth of Mercedes-Benz, and are setting clear standards in the areas of safety, design, quality and efficiency.
For the first time, the Mercedes-Benz E-Class is available with two different front ends, the basic variant and ELEGANCE equipment line come with the classic, three-dimensional Saloon grille with 3-louvre look and Mercedes-Benz star on the bonnet. The AVANTGARDE equipment line, on the other hand, incorporates the sporty front end with central star, and as such boasts an independent, front-end look with a sporty emphasis.
The headlamps have been redesigned and comprise all functional elements with a single headlamp lens. The low-beam headlamps and the daytime running lamps feature LED technology as standard. Full LED headlamps are also available as an option for the first time in this class. A modified side view with new feature line and repositioned trim strip make both the Saloon and the Estate appear longer. Overall the E-Class not only looks more elongated, but also more elegant yet at the same time dynamic.
