The 2018 Mercedes-Benz E-Class sedan offers drivers the opportunity to ride in dashing style, decadent comfort and technological convenience.
The 2018 Mercedes-Benz E-Class sedan is home to technology never before employed on a production vehicle. Car-to-X technology connects to a centralized information bank to send updates about driving conditions to the driver while they’re travelling.
Even more technologically advanced is DRIVE PILOT®, which employs a radar cruise control system to stop and go with the speed of traffic, a lane-keeping system to stay between the lines even through curves and DRIVE PILOT® can also change lanes when the driver uses the turn-signal lever.
On the safety front, the E-Class sedan can be equipped with PRE-SAFE® Sound, which emits “pink noise” when it senses an incoming collision to trigger one’s natural hearing defense against loud noises. PRE-SAFE® Impulse Side rapidly inflates the front-seat bolster to move the occupant further from the side of the car and reduce the impact force.
Depending on the model, the 2018 Mercedes-Benz E-Class sedan comes with one of two engines.
In E 300 models, the E-Class is equipped with a highly advanced turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-four-cylinder engine, which produces 241 horsepower and 273 lb-ft of torque.
In the E 400 4MATIC® sedan, this engine is replaced by a biturbocharged 3.0-liter V6 engine, which offers far more power at 329 horsepower and 354 lb-ft of torque.
The cabin of the E-class offers a cocoon of comfort, with standard features like dual-zone automatic climate control, specially designed power front seats with a memory system and a power tilt/sliding tinted glass sunroof.
This can be enhanced with some of the optional features offered. Some of these include five different wood trims (including Burl Walnut and designo® Magnolia “Flowing Lines”), active multicontour front seats with a massage function, heated front armrests and upper door panels, soft-close doors and an in-car 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot.
With so much innovative technology employed to move, protect and entertain the occupants, the 2018 Mercedes-Benz E-Class sedan is clearly a luxury vehicle that rises above the competition.
