Mercedes-Benz has unveiled first pictures of the new E-Class interior, which features a wide high-resolution next-generation dual display (12.3 inches per display) that appears to hover in space.
In addition, touch-sensitive control buttons on the steering wheel make their first appearance in a car, allowing the driver to control the entire infotainment system using finger swipes without having to take their hands off the steering wheel.
The all-new experience is rounded off by a novel, intelligent graphic design with high-resolution visualisations and animations as well as simplified control logic. At the same time, the occupants enjoy a sensual interior with spacious architecture and high-quality materials.
“With the interior of the new E-Class, we are giving a new interpretation to the concept of contemporary luxury,” said Hartmut Sinkwitz, Head of Interior Design. “We have designed a spacious and intelligent interior. True to Mercedes-Benz’s design philosophy of sensual purity, it employs technological innovation and high-grade equipment to create an exceptionally emotive experience for driver and front passenger. The E-Class thus not only sets a new standard in the business class. Alongside a workplace and private environment, it also becomes a “third place” – a living area in which passengers are able to enjoy contemporary luxury.”
New E-Class will debut next month at NAIAS in Detroit.
