You are probably already familiar with the vehicle as its design was fully revealed by a massive leak earlier this month, while official photos arrived yesterday. The E-Class is not trying to hide its relationship with the smaller C-Class and the flagship S-Class, featuring large radiator grille and sweptback headlights. In fact, three different grill designs will be offered depending on the selected trim level.
The interior is definitely a big step forward over the previous model and it comes with two large displays in the top variants, a steering wheel with touch-sensitive control, and a Burmester 3D surround audio system.
What’s more impressive, the car is getting an array of safety and assistance systems, including a semi-autonomous driving system called Drive Pilot. When activated, it automatically drives the car on highways at speeds up to 210 kilometres per hour. The executive sedan can also be equipped with the so-called Remote Parking Pilot system, enabling remote-controlled parking maneuvers.
At launch, European customers will get a 2.0-litre turbocharged petrol in the E 200 that has 184 horsepower, as well as a 2.0-litre diesel with 195 hp in the E 220d. In Canada the E-Class will be available with a turbocharged 2.0-litre four-cylinder engine with 241 hp and 273 lb-ft of torque. It will be connected exclusively to a new nine-speed automatic transmission.
