2017 Mercedes-Benz E-Class – Laguna Niguel, CA
The 2017 Mercedes E-Class in Laguna Niguel, CA is a vehicle that has it all. It’s got the luxury, the performance, and the safety and technology. The cabin has been upgraded in both looks and materials quality. Now, exquisite upholstery and other trim run throughout the cabin, which is now more comfortably situated. As far as performance goes, it only has one engine option. Why? Because, it only needs one engine option. It’s a luxury midsize sedan after all, so as long as the engine produces enough power for effective acceleration (which it does), that’s all that matters. Finally, the Mercedes E-Class has some of the most intuitive and advanced safety technology found on the market — and that’s not an exaggeration.
Because it’s a Mercedes, excellence should be expected. However, the 2017 E-Class goes above and beyond expectation. A testament to the brand’s desire of providing high-quality vehicles.
For the 2017 model, the design and materials have both been upgraded. Luxury and Mercedes are two words that belong together, and the new cabin found in the E-Class proves that. Senses come alive, thanks to vivid screens and flowing leather upholstery. Fine-tailored seats have been sculpted to match the shape of your body, with wood grain paneling sweeping from door to door, illuminated by edge-lit 64-color LED lights to create an even more upscale ambience. The multitouch controls help with the aesthetics, but also user-intuitiveness.
A big part of luxury is relaxing, so it only makes sense to make the inside as easy to operate as possible. Which is why everything from the air-conditioning to the navigation — or available heads-up display — can be operated via steering wheel controls. The clarity of the dashboard display, and the way it’s been set up make it very easy to use and follow what’s happening. Even the shifting is done on the steering-wheel column with a tree-shifter. Everything is in one place, so you can keep your hands as close to the wheel as possible.
Apart from the stunning looks, materials, ergonomic seats and layout of the controls, you’ll also find state-of-the-art luxury features. Like an aromatherapy system, which double-filters the cabin air, ionizes it, and then re-emits it with one of four different fragrances. Or, the upgraded seats that provide six different massages, one of which uses the heating function to emulate a hot stone massage.
As far as cabin design changes go, the E-Class cabin has taken a huge step forward in engineering. Mercedes made it a point to eliminate any road noise, wind noise, or vibration experienced in the cabin. While the previous model isn’t loud or uncomfortable by any means, the cabin found on the 2017 model is very quiet while driving around town or on the highway.
Overall, it’s been upgraded. Everything from the materials to the operation of some of the features. This creates a relaxed and luxurious atmosphere, that is undoubtedly an experience expected from a Mercedes.
With the E-Class, performance is so much more than just engine power and fuel-efficiency. Actually, the official EPA fuel efficiency of the 2017 E-Class is unknown. What is known though is the type of engine it has: a turbocharged 2.0-liter inline-4 that produces 241 horsepower and 273 lb-ft of torque. This allows the E-Class midsize sedan to accelerate from 0-60 mph in 6.2 seconds, which is plenty quick enough to merge on the highway. Especially since the turbocharged torque is delivered seamlessly. The turbo technology gets more power from less fuel, which not only boosts efficiency, but also power. It makes sure to self-calibrate every few milliseconds in order to always draw the same amount of fuel. This ensures consistent efficiency and power. Combine that technology with the new 9-speed transmission for quicker responses and wider gear changes.
More important than the engine, however, is the way it drives. Just like the comfort inside the cabin, while the handling of the previous E-Class wasn’t terrible by any means, it’s much better on the 2017 model. It steers, corners, and brakes with slightly more confidence than the 2016 model. But it’s important to remember, this is still a comfort-based car. Which means even if the handling has improved, it shouldn’t be thought that the E-Class now has sports car-like capabilities.
Therefore, it’s worth noting the E-Class’ Dynamic Select system. This system allows you to dial in the car’s performance type with the tap of a console button. It has a Sport mode for a more sports car-like driving experience, but it only sharpens the throttle, chassis, and shifting — not so much the handling. Eco mode allows you to save as much gas as possible, and there is even a custom mode where you can calibrate the performance yourself.
A big part of the E-Class’ prowess in steering and handling is the new Air Body Control. This system turns pressurized air into precise handling and a polished ride. It’s self-leveling and adaptive, which means there is no need for you to worry about engaging it. Furthermore, there are different modes that can be engaged to help optimize your ride, depending on your environment.
Even more impressive than the E-Class’ handling is the pioneering safety technology found on board, making this 2017 model feel like it shouldn’t be released until much further in the future.
It’s not just the most advanced E-Class yet, but it’s a vehicle that is going to write a new chapter in the history of driving. Think that’s an exaggeration? The advanced safety technology in this vehicle will prove that.
The 2017 E-Class is the first car that has the ability to protect your ears before a crash occurs. If a collision is unavoidable, the sound system will actually emit a safe “pink noise” via the Pre-Safe Sound safety system. This “pink noise” helps protect your hearing by triggering a muscle found in the inner ear, which is a natural defense against loud noises.
Another world-first safety feature is Car-To-X Communication technology. This system connects the E-Class to a central information resource. That way, your car will receive updates about driving conditions or hazards that other E-Class models have warned that central information resource about. Essentially, your E-Class is able to communicate with other E-Class models on the road in order to make your driving experience a lot easier by avoiding things such as accidents, road work, or even just heavy traffic.
A third innovative safety feature is the Pre-Safe Impulse Side. This is another industry first safety feature that intuitively uses the side seat bolster. If the system detects a side collision (from either the driver or passenger side) it will rapidly inflate the front-seat side bolster. This will push the driver or passenger towards the center of the vehicle, and further out of harm’s way.
