INTERIOR: 2017 Mercedes E-Class Estate. Inside, the Mercedes-Benz E-Class Estate utilises the Saloon’s award-winning design. The instrument panel can be adorned with two optional wide, high-resolution and brilliant displays, each with a 12.3-inch screen diagonal. Located under a shared glass cover, they merge to form a widescreen cockpit. The driver may configure the fully digital display to show the information and views that are relevant for them. There are three different styles to choose from: “Classic”, “Sport” and “Progressive”. Touch‑sensitive controls on the steering wheel allow the instrument cluster and multimedia system to be controlled at the swipe of a finger and have made their début in the new E-Class.
Further controls are provided in the form of a touchpad with controller in the centre console, which can also recognise handwriting, plus the LINGUATRONIC voice control system. There are also direct-access buttons for controlling the air conditioning, for example, and for convenient activation and deactivation of certain driving assistance systems.
High-quality materials define the interior style. They include open-pore woods, wood in a yachting look with flowing lines as a contemporary interpretation of inlaid wood and a novel metal fabric. The use of authentic materials is continued in the optionally leather-covered doors and the beltline. Another Mercedes hallmark clearly in evidence is the high-quality look and feel created by meticulous attention to detail and craftsmanship. Just as carefully composed is the material and colour concept with various shades of brown, including attractive colour combinations such as macchiato beige/espresso brown or macchiato beige/saddle brown. The design and equipment lines include enhanced ambience lighting featuring 64 colours and therefore offer plenty of opportunities for personalised adjustment.
When it comes to the seats, their ergonomic, sculptural form combines Mercedes‑Benz’s hallmark suitability for long journeys with a refined, sporty look, featuring a unique design for each line. Other new features in this segment are a Heat Comfort package including heated armrests in the doors and on the centre console and the quickly responding seat heating Plus.
