Expectation starts with E.
For generations, one car has set the standards to which all other automobiles instantly aspire, and will someday adhere. Once again, leadership takes a leap ahead.
Since its arrival in its original form some 60 years ago, the Mercedes-Benz E-Class has devotedly fostered two virtues of leadership in the automotive world: A talent for breaking new ground in virtually every area of automotive excellence.
And a knack for predicting what people will expect from all cars in the future. For decades, it’s been the standard-bearer in innovation, safety and rewarding performance. It’s been the subject of study to emulate its solidity and durability. And it’s been the object of endless idolization — from cars whose ads claim to have duplicated its iconic style, to wide recognition for inventing what is now a core category of luxury automobile. For 2014, the E-Class asserts its lead once more — actually, several times more. It’s more advanced in its performance and its eco-friendliness. Intelligent Drive is a new name for its ever-expanding, industry-leading roster of innovations in both driving safety and convenience. And a stunningly redesigned body and more elegant cabin present the role-model virtues of the E-Class in supermodel style. Once again, the pace of progress has been reset. And with it, so has every expectation of what an automobile can be.
Experience invested, time well spent.
Touch any surface in the E‑Class cabin and you’ll feel more than an exquisite finish. Gaze upon each element that’s rendered in hand‑finished wood, polished aluminum or matte chrome, and you’ll see something that runs far deeper than a rich glow and precise fit. A perpetual paragon of advanced luxury, the E‑Class is always presenting new ways to elevate your senses — especially your sense of well‑being. But its workmanship continues to reflect treasured traditions and unparalleled experience. An E‑Class is created from a steadfast belief that the time invested in crafting it will directly ßinfluence the time you spend enjoying it.
The insight to change the outcome.
For more than 60 years, Mercedes-Benz safety engineers have been focused on the future. With countless breakthroughs from the first crumple zone to the newest collision-avoidance systems of Intelligent Drive, they’ve predicted numerous safety standards that all cars have come to follow. More importantly, every pioneering innovation they introduce to the world serves to better protect your future — even the part that’s mere milliseconds in front of you. Perhaps no one has done more to change the course of automotive history — or help preserve the course of your own.
