MotorTrend's 2021 Car of the Year®
MotorTrend® has awarded the E-Class its highest honor for 2021. The entire line, its editors praise, "makes everyone feel special, delivers the best experience, and stands out from the rest of the segment. It does everything right, and does it all naturally." Disclaimer
You can talk to it, and the E-Class responds with action. It can talk with some other cars to help you prepare for trouble. And it can team up its advances to help make every drive safer, smoother, and more satisfying than ever before.
A touch more human
The intuitive, touch-sensitive controls of the Mercedes-Benz User Experience (MBUX) put a world of features at your fingertips. The digital cockpit's dual 12.3-inch displays include a central touchscreen.
Your way starts with "Hey"
MBUX can listen and learn, to turn your words into action. Just say "Hey, Mercedes," then "I'm cold" or "I need a coffee," and MBUX can warm the cabin or set the standard MB Navigation. You can also quietly control features via new, more advanced steering-wheel touch controls. Disclaimer
A devotion to your devices
Mercedes me connect makes ownership easy. Access Remote Start or Lock/Unlock, schedule service and more, all from your phone. In-car WiFi is available for a low monthly rate. Wireless charging is available, while Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto are standard. Disclaimer Disclaimer Disclaimer
Keeps an eye on your future
Advanced systems can help de-stress driving, from standard Blind Spot Assist to pre-crash hearing protection. Options can help you change lanes with a tap of a turn signal, or help the cruise control steer, stop-and-go in traffic, even slow for an offramp. Disclaimer
The E-Class body always reflects its soul. So its many enhancements are wrapped in a freshly refined design. A sleek new grille and LED headlamps lead the way, while a reshaped trunk and sporty taillamps leave a lasting impression.
Only the wind won't see it
Standard AMG styling with a chrome diamond-block grille is eye-catching yet wind-cheating. A range of 18-inch and 19-inch wheels includes AMG® designs, many with black accents to complement the optional Night Package.
Displays of intelligence
Dual 12.3-inch displays create a customizable cockpit. Gauges are reconfigurable. The central multimedia touchscreen integrates with controls on the wheel and console, MBUX voice control, and more.
An extensive ambient lighting network adds to driving enjoyment and can help reduce fatigue. You can choose from 64 colors: solo, in pairs, or in motion. Tap a climate adjuster and a gentle red or blue flash confirms.
State of the artisan
Along with its tech, the E-Class tradition of craftsmanship advances as well. Upholstery is hand-fitted to heated front seats. Choose from five woods at no charge. Options range from acoustic glass to a giant sunroof.
The measure of an E-Class is still how it moves, and the way it moves you. Agile and athletic, it's engineered and tuned to evoke your confidence and inspire your joy on city streets, open highways, and the road to the future.
Driving forces unite
Standard on the E 450 and an E 350 option, 4MATIC® all-wheel drive adds confidence in challenging conditions. Selective damping or available AIR BODY CONTROL® each respond to sharpen handling and smooth the ride.
The 255-hp turbo E 350 squeezes more power from less fuel, self-tuning every few milliseconds. The E 450's 362-hp turbo inline-6 is electrified with EQ Boost technology, for added gas-free response and responsibility.
Tuning you can tune in
DYNAMIC SELECT dials in performance with the tap of a console button. The 9-speed transmission, throttle and more sharpen in Sport mode, ease up in ECO. There's even a mode you can set up as you like.
