Big Updates For 2017 Mercedes-Benz E-Class

2017-Mercedes-E-Class-W213-2016-NAIAS-14

I’ve been looking forward to this reveal for a while. Even though my car has only reached its second birthday, I have been wondering what Mercedes had in store for the next generation E-Class. The W213 is the next generation of Mercedes’s most profitable car.

For the 10th generation, Mercedes is coming out with a technological tour-de-force. Many new systems and features bring it up to date with the competition, most especially Tesla in the auto pilot department. Drive Pilot is the new system that I hope will address all the issues I had with Distrionic Plus when I did the comparison of the Model S and the E63. Autopilot showdown. I’m looking forward to my first test drive with the new E-Class this summer.

The new E-class has taken a page out of the 4-door coupe design book. If you have read any of my articles in the past, you will know how much of a fan I am of that. Well, I am not. It isn’t the new CLS, but head room feels a bit tighter in the back. I guess sedan styling is a little to old man for everyone? The car is a few inches longer, wider and they have lengthened the wheelbase. This makes rear legroom better and also leaves more room for the C-Class to breath (it got bigger with the W205 generation).

Next Mercedes E-Class caught testing in C-Class body

Exec admits Benz should have created an E63 AMG Coupe

Despite the fact that Mercedes-Benz seems to have AMG-ified nearly every model in its current lineup (not that we’re complaining), it always seemed like sort of a misstep that this same treatment was never afforded to the E-Class Coupe (pictured). After all, Merc has created AMG versions of the …

Long-wheelbase sedans are a pretty hot commodity in China, and to keep up with the competition, Mercedes-Benz has introduced an extended version of the 2014 E-Class sedan at the Shanghai Motor Show. Audi, BMW, Volvo and even Cadillac offer extended versions of sedans specific to the Chinese …


Shanghai: China Gets a Longer E-Class


Mercedes-Benz is set to introduce a long wheelbase version of the E-Class specifically targetted at the Chinese market at the Shanghai Auto Show. This is in contrast to the long wheelbase Panameras that Porsche also recently announced in Shanghai that will be available for order worldwide. The E-Class Long, measuring 501.9cm in length with a wheelbase of 301.4cm, will offer an additional 14cm of legroom for the rear passengers. Built exclusively in China, the Long features the revised interior and exterior updates of the facelifted E-Class. Engine choices include the 204hp 4-cylinder (E260 L), the 245hp V6 (E300 L), and the 333hp V6 (E400L). Sadly, there is no AMG version available for the E-Class Long.
