Interior comfort - spoilt for choice


For even greater driving pleasure

It could hardly be any more luxurious. The E-Class Saloon offers you such a host of comfort features that you won't want for anything more. The optional active multicontour seats and the automatic climate control, for example, ensure that. Or you can enjoy a very special experience in the interior with the optionally available panoramic sliding sunroof .

Active Multicontour Seats (optional)[1]

The multicontour seats for driver and front passenger feature separately regulable air chambers which can be adapted to individual requirements. The seat side bolsters can adapt dynamically and automatically to the driving situation. Seat cushion depth, seat side bolsters and lumbar support can all be adjusted pneumatically.

Additional comfort is provided by a dynamic massage function in seven zones. This is one of many reasons why the Active Multicontour Seats were awarded the quality seal by the "Aktion gesunder Rücken e. V." ("Campaign for healthy backs"), which is awarded to products that are particularly "back friendly".

Rear comfort package (optional)[2]

Generosity of the highest level with the luxury individual seats in the rear of the E-Class. Special highlights include luxury head restraints and a generous stowage box in the centre.

The luxury individual seats also impress with their leather upholstery and seat heating, sunblinds on the rear doors and armrests with two integrated drink holders. And don’t forget the manual roller sunblinds for the side windows and an electrically operated sunblind for the rear window.

THERMATIC automatic climate control[3]

THERMATIC automatic climate control delivers individual temperatures and a pleasant climate in the vehicle interior.

The desired temperature and air distribution can be separately regulated for the two zones for the left and right-hand sides of the interior. In addition, a special filter ensures optimum air quality by absorbing dust particles from the outside air.

THERMOTRONIC automatic climate control (optional)[4]

The THERMOTRONIC automatic climate control system allows the driver and front passenger to adapt the climate in their respective seats to suit their individual requirements – independently of each other. The system keeps the temperature at the desired level automatically, even in strong sunlight.

To this end, sensors register the temperature inside and outside the vehicle, controlling the heating, cooling and fan for each temperature zone individually, according to requirements.

  • To suit every taste: There are three climate styles (DIFFUSE, MEDIUM and FOCUS) available for selection in automatic mode. You can use these styles to adjust the interior climate to your individual preferences. Factors such as outside temperature, humidity and sunlight are taken into account. A diffuser panel on the dashboard reduces draughts.
  • Clean air: Dust and noxious-gas sensors guarantee that virtually all the pollutants remain outside. If required the air vents can close automatically.
  • Pleasant climate in the second row as well: Passengers in the rear seats have the option of individually controlling the climate control for the rear area: intensity, direction and desired temperature can be conveniently set at the push of a button.
Memory package (optional)

With the memory package the driver’s and front-passenger seat, steering column and exterior mirrors can be adjusted electrically to any position. This increases convenience when there is a frequent change of drivers. The individual settings for up to three people can be stored. In addition the package features 4-way lumbar support for the driver and front passenger. The front-passenger mirror swivels automatically downwards when reverse is engaged (parking position) to provide a better overview when reversing.

As soon as the driver selects a setting with the touch of a button, electric controls automatically set the seat, steering column and exterior mirrors back to the previously stored positions. In conjunction with the optional active multicontour seats, the PRE-SAFE® positioning function can act in a hazardous situation. Should PRE-SAFE® detect a critical situation, the side bolsters of the seat cushions and backrests are inflated to give driver and front passenger greater lateral support.

If the PRE-SAFE® system is activated, the front passenger seat can also be moved automatically into a more favourable crash position. If there is no collision, the multicontour seats are returned to the initial positions again once the parameters fall below the trigger point.

Panoramic sliding sunroof (optional)

The panoramic sliding sunroof consists of a fixed panoramic glass roof and an electrically operated glass sunroof that slides over the exterior of the roof. The large window panes with optimised net wind deflector provide the best possible light/visibility and a more generous sense of space from all the seats.

  • Well-ventilated: When the roof is open, the interior can be supplied with fresh air according to requirements using different opening positions.
  • Staying in the shade: Two roller sunblinds colour-coordinated with the interior appointments can be closed using one-touch control to block out unwanted sunlight.
Sliding sunroof (optional)

The sliding glass sunroof increases draught-free air circulation in the interior and counteracts the tendency of the windows to mist up in unfavourable weather conditions. With the wind deflector, driving at a high speed with an open roof causes neither excessive noise nor draughts. Thanks to a newly developed function, the automatic opening and closing can take it to the position which was selected last.

The sliding sunroof is operated by the multifunction switch in the overhead control panel. When the multifunction switch in the overhead control panel is moved beyond a pressure point in the appropriate direction and released, the sliding sunroof automatically moves to the relevant final position (e.g. tilting, opening, closing).

When locking the vehicle with the remote control or when using KEYLESS-GO with the door lock elements, the tilting/sliding sunroof can be closed by pressing and holding the locking button. If the button is released, the closing procedure stops. The "summer opening" function can be activated via the electronic key, which also activates the seat ventilation feature of the climatised seat (if this feature is present) on the driver’s side.

In conjunction with the rain sensor continuously variable control of the wiper speed is extended to include the function "automatic closing of the sliding sunroof when raining". With the onset of rain or in extreme temperatures, the sliding sunroof is automatically moved to the tilt position.

Climatised seats for driver and front passenger (optional)[5]

The climatised seats improve ride comfort on longer trips and reduce perspiration thanks to a pleasant air flow and selectable seat heating. Fans integrated in the seat upholstery uniformly distribute a flow of air in three intensity levels under the leather backrest and cushion covers.

The air flows through the fine perforation and quickly cools down the surface of the seats to a pleasant temperature – even if the vehicle has been heated by an intense amount of sunlight for a longer period of time. On cold days you can turn on the three-level adjustable seat heating, which guarantees together with the air flow that wet clothes dry faster.
