Ahead of its Detroit Motor Show unveil next month, Mercedes has revealed the interior of the next-gen E-Class. The new E-Class will come with the same digital dashboard tech which is already on use in the larger S-Class range. However, whereas the current S-Class has two separate screens in a dual-display layout, the new E-Class uses two 12.3in displays housed within a single unit, which dominates the cabin.
The new system is fully configurable by the driver, and Mercedes’ Comand infotainment software has been significantly upgraded to match. Drivers can choose from three themes - dubbed Classic, Sport and Progressive - each of which alters the look of the instrument cluster, as well as adjusting the content shown in each display. Content is controlled either from touch-sensitive pads on either side of the steering wheel or from the same touchpad controller already fitted to the majority of the Mercedes-Benz range.
Most E-Class models will receive the widescreen set-up as standard. However, base Avantgarde versions in some markets will make do with traditional analogue dials with a colour display and an 8.4in central infotainment screen. The centre console storage compartment now includes a wireless charging mat for mobile phones and a USB connector for Apple CarPlay functionality. Google’s Android Auto should also be available by the time the car goes on sale globally. A further two USB connections and an SD card slot can be found in the armrest storage compartment.
