The steering wheel sports touch-sensitive buttons, a first, the automaker says, for a vehicle.

The buttons allow drivers to control the infotainment system using finger swipes,  without having to take their hands off the steering wheel.

Wide dual display

The E-Class has two displays each with a 31.2cm screen diagonal with a resolution of 1920 x 720 pixels. These merge visually to form, the automaker says, 'a wide-screen cockpit'.

According to Mercedes-Benz: "As the instrument cluster, this wide-screen cockpit contains a large display with virtual instruments in the direct field of vision of the driver as well as a central display above the centre console. A common glass cover results in a modern flat-screen look."

Drivers can choose between three different styles for the wide-screen cluster - Classic, Sport and Progressive.

Hartmut Sinkwitz, head of interior design, said: “With the interior of the new E-Class, we are giving a new interpretation to the concept of contemporary luxury.”

Sinkwitz said: “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.”
