With a modern interpretation of design cues made iconic by their legendary predecessors, the redesigned 2014 Mercedes-Benz E-Class delivers a style that is both timeless and trendsetting. Now available in two front-end treatments: bold or sport, a driver can choose a coupe, convertible, sedan, or a wagon. In addition, the 2014 E-Class offers a slew of engines ranging from a four-cylinder turbodiesel to an incredibly strong AMG version. The body rests upon fine alloy wheels and four-lamp LED headlights help increase the visibility of the vehicle to oncoming traffic. LED technology also delivers quicker illumination of the brake lamps. On the inside, 2014 offers modifications such as a host of available upholstery, including MB-Tex upholstery or leather. The seats, for four to five passengers depending on model, are beyond comfortable with more than adequate headroom and ergonomic features. Featuring a high-resolution color-LCD display and a central controller on the console, the Cockpit Management and Data (COMAND) system gives convenient control of audio, video, hands-free calling and optional navigation functions. An advanced system of nine standard airbags offers enhanced occupant protection. ATTENTION ASSIST continuously monitors different parameters of driving behavior, and can automatically alert the driver with both visual and audible warnings. Adaptive braking technology integrates a suite of advances. Predictive brake priming sets the pads closer to the discs for more immediate response when brakes are applied. In the rain, automatic brake drying periodically applies the brakes just enough to sweep water build-up from the discs.
