2014 Mercedes E-Class boasts of equipment made for S-Class

Article by Anita Panait, on May 27, 2013

Consumers don’t have to wait for the 2016 redesign of the Mercedes-Benz E-Class before seeing some high-tech equipment developed for the upcoming S-class sedan. In fact, they could experience such equipment in the restyled 2014 E-class range that will go on sale this June 2013.

The restyled 2014 Mercedes E-class range -- including the coupe and soft-top cabriolet – is endowed with the standard and optional safety and handling features that were developed for the S-class.

These features include the optional steering-assist system called Distronic Plus, which keeps the car in its lane and keeps pace with traffic. Mercedes-Benz will initially sell the coupe and cabriolet as the E350, powered by a 3.5-liter 302-hp V-6, and the E550, powered by a 4.6-liter, 402-hp V-8.

The E350 coupe and cabriolet will be then replaced this fall with the 2015 E400 biturbo, powered by a 333-hp engine. The E-class coupe and cabriolet are targeted against the Audi A5 sedan and convertible, the Jaguar XF coupe, and the Jaguar XK coupe and convertible.

Mercedes also endowed the E-class range, including a sedan and station wagon restyled in April 2013, with the usual mid-life upgrades due to increasing competition in the mid-sized luxury segment. The E-class led the segment in the United States in 2012, with 65,171 units sold. The restyled E-class now includes new standard features like radar-based collision prevention and attention assist systems, a stop-start feature and LED lights.

Customers could opt for more features like the Intelligent Drive, which include a system that recognizes stationary vehicles and pedestrians, braking autonomously at speeds up to 30 mph. Customers could also opt for the Pre-safe Plus feature, which recognizes a looming rear-end crash and brakes the vehicle to prevent secondary accidents.
