INTERIOR: 2017 Mercedes E-Class L Sport. The high-quality appointments of the interior ensure a prestigious and pleasant atmosphere. The Mercedes-Benz E-Class Long-Wheelbase is characterised by two wide high-resolution and bright displays each with a next-generation 12.3-inch screen diagonal. The two displays blend into a wide-screen cockpit beneath a joint glass cover. As the instrument cluster, this wide-screen cockpit contains a large display with virtual instruments in the direct field of vision of the driver as well as a central display above the centre console. The driver can choose between three different styles to select their preferred look for the wide-screen instrument cluster: “Classic”, “Sport” and “Progressive”.
Also on board are new touch-sensitive controls in the steering wheel. Like a smartphone interface, they respond precisely to horizontal and vertical swiping movements, allowing the driver to control the entire infotainment system using finger swipes without having to take their hands off the steering wheel. In keeping with the motto “hands on the wheel, eyes on the road”, this allows minimum driver distraction to be achieved.
Further controls for the infotainment system are provided in the form of a touchpad with Controller in the centre console, which can also recognise handwriting and characters, plus the LINGUATRONIC voice control system. There are also direct-access buttons for controlling functions such as the air-conditioning system or – in another first – for convenient activation and deactivation of certain driving assistance systems.
High-quality materials define the interior style. They include a selection of fine woods. The dashboard and beltlines feature fine ARTICO. Another Mercedes hallmark clearly in evidence is the high-quality look and feel created through meticulous attention to detail and craftsmanship.
The long-wheelbase version of the E-Class is produced at Beijing Benz Automotive Co., Ltd. (BBAC) in Beijing for the Chinese market. BBAC is a joint venture between Daimler and the strategic partner BAIC.
