The new E-Class Saloon is engineered to deliver more comfort, more efficiency and a more connected drive than ever before. The beautifully sculpted exterior is both elegant and dramatic, giving the new E-Class Saloon a look that not many cars can live up to. Once inside, the spacious cabin has the feel of a class-leader, from crafted leather upholstery, to 64 colour ambient lighting, KEYLESS-GO start function and an innovative touch-control, multi-function steering wheel.
This car offers an extensive range of tools to support the driver, including the optional DRIVE PILOT which is the next step in autonomous driving technology; Remote Park Pilot that allows you to park your vehicle from your smartphone; and equally impressive, the Infotainment technology with options such as a stunning widescreen floating display. When it comes to efficiency, the new E-Class Saloon sets a new benchmark; the E 220 d model delivers up to 72.4 mpg together with CO2 as low as 102 g/km. And, as ever, the performance of the new E-Class Saloon is further improved by class-leading aerodynamics and the ultra-smooth 9G-TRONIC PLUS 9-speed automatic transmission, which creates an alluring driving experience.
The Driving Assistance Plus Package is an optional feature that allows for our new DRIVE PILOT SYSTEM to function. This assists you in staying safely in your lane, even when road markings are not evident. Safety is never taken lightly, and with Evasive Steering Assist (also with the Driving Assistance Plus package), we have managed to enhance control when performing hazardous manoeuvres, out of necessity, such as swerving to avoid a pedestrian. Another safety feature available is PRE-SAFE® Sound, which helps prevent damage to ears caused by the noise of a crash. A great leap forward for autonomous driving cars with a wealth of technology available in the new E-Class Saloon.
The Remote Park Pilot* is a must for anyone parking in tight or difficult spaces. You remain completely in control of your vehicle, controlling it via the Remote Parking Pilot App on your smartphone and the car uses sensors, steering and braking automatically to park your car safely. It’s also especially helpful for people with restricted mobility.
Don’t take our word for it though, watch our YouTube video to see just how easy the Remote Park Pilot actually is to use.
emissions as low as 102 g/km and sprint 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.
