The Mercedes-Benz E‑Class has been extensively enhanced. The model series narrows the gap to the S-Class with the cutting-edge driving assistance systems.
With the Driving Assistance Package, all E-Class Saloon and Estate models come with the driving assistance systems that feature the range of functions with route-based driver support familiar from the S-Class. Active Distance Assist DISTRONIC and Active Steering Assist now provide even more comfortable support for the driver in steering and keeping a safe distance – the speed is now adjusted automatically ahead of bends, junctions or roundabouts.
There is a choice of five driving programs and four operating modes, allowing the powertrain management strategy to be adapted both to the driver’s requirements and to the on-board energy supplies. This control system achieves its highest efficiency in the Economy or Comfort programme as it accesses the data of all the driver assistance systems – such as radar sensors, camera and navigation system. The powertrain management takes account of the topography, route and traffic situation to calculate precisely when it is best for the driver to come off the accelerator (and use the momentum for charging), when and how often the transmission should change gear to save fuel and maximise the range of the electric drive, and how the operating temperature of all major components needs to be controlled to negotiate the next uphill gradient efficiently.
All E-Class body styles are now equipped with the latest generation of steering wheels. DISTRONIC and cruise control are now operated directly on the steering wheel.
