2017 Mercedes-Benz E-Class
Mercedes-Benz presented the new 2017 E-Class sedan at the 2016 Geneva Motor Show following its world premiere at the North American International Auto Show in January. The 10th-generation E-Class boasts a new exterior design, a new luxurious interior and world-premiere technologies. With a long hood and short decklid, the E-Class has classic Mercedes sedan proportions and a similarity to the larger S-Class sedan. Mercedes-Benz says the new E-Class interior is “the synthesis of emotion and intelligence,” dominated by a next-gen high-resolution display that combines a wide navigation display screen and a traditional gauge cluster integrated into a single unit behind the steering wheel. The steering wheel features two touch-sensitive control pads — similar to a smartphone interface —that respond to horizontal and vertical swiping motions, allowing the driver to control the infotainment system with thumb motions without removing hands from the steering wheel.
