The Active Multicontour Seat with NECK-PRO luxury head restraints allows effective adjustment to individual seating requirements, adapts itself to every driving situation, massages the back muscles and reduces the risk of injury in the event of an accident.
Depending on the steering angle, lateral acceleration and speed, the air cushions in the seat side bolsters can be tightened pneumatically in two stages to guarantee the best possible lateral support even when the driver employs a very dynamic driving style. After the dynamic function is switched off, the previously selected pressure in the side chambers is automatically reset symmetrically.
The Anti-Theft Protection package combines various items of equipment which help to protect the vehicle from break-ins, theft and unauthorised towing.The package includes the Anti-theft alarm system (ATA) with tow-away protection and interior monitoring If the system is activated via remote control when closing the vehicle, it warns in the event of unauthorised entry or theft.
The finest materials and a touch of elegance – the Exclusive Package adds extra refinement to the high-quality interior of the ELEGANCE and AVANTGARDE equipment lines.

The optimised Driving Assistance package Plus can make an active contribution to everyday road safety. The proximity control, lane-change control and Blind Spot Assist functions together with the brake system optimisation all contribute decisively to safe travel and a safe arrival.
Overview of equipment:
Active Blind Spot Assist uses radar and monitors the blind spot areas to the left, right and rear of the vehicle. If a vehicle is detected within the monitored sector, a warning symbol is displayed in the driver's exterior mirrorShould the driver overlook the warning and start to change lane, the ESP® system can intervene actively.
Active Lane Keeping Assist monitors the lane markings continuously.Should the system identify that the vehicle is drifting over a line or markings in an uncontrolled manner, it can counter this with an active braking intervention The extended system, implemented for the first time in the new E-Class, also detects additional hazards when crossing a broken line and when overtaking, as well as oncoming traffic.
Until the present, the BAS PLUS predictive brake assist system has helped the driver in a linear flow of traffic with vehicles travelling ahead or stationary obstacles in the event of impending rear-end collisions. The system is active up to a speed of 250 km/h and provides the necessary braking force if the driver performs an emergency braking manoeuvre. Now for the first time in the new E-Class, the expanded BAS PLUS function also covers crossing objects (Cross-Traffic Assist) and pedestrians (pedestrian protection), something that is particularly relevant in urban traffic and at junctions. Objects crossing the vehicle's path as well as stationary or slowly-moving pedestrians in the active area in front of the vehicle can be detected by the system, the driver can be warned and supported in an emergency braking manoeuvre at speeds of up to 72 km/h.
The PRE-SAFE® brake can help prevent rear-end collisions. The system emits three warning tones to alert the driver if it detects an imminent danger of a rear-end collision. If the driver does not react, the system initiates autonomous partial braking 1.6 seconds before the calculated time of impact, decelerating the vehicle with around 40 percent of maximum braking power (4 m/s2). This provides another prompt for the driver to act. Should the driver also fail to react to this haptic signal, the PRE-SAFE® brake will if necessary trigger an autonomous emergency stop. In the new generation of the E-Class the PRE-SAFE® brake now also acts in conjunction with detected pedestrians.
The extended PRE-SAFE® PLUS function can recognise and initiate safety measures to protect vehicle occupants not only against hazards located in front of the vehicle, it can also react to potential dangers behind the car. PRE-SAFE® PLUS features a radar sensor in the rear bumper that detects objects in imminent danger of collision, and can initiate appropriate preventive measures such as stopping short. This system is complemented by the height-adjustable seat belt buckle extender on the outer rear seats. They facilitate fastening the seat belts and ensure safety-relevant pre-tensioning of the belts in the event that the Pre-Safe® mechanisms are triggered in a dangerous situation.
A lofty, luxury-class-level, seating feeling is offered by the luxury individual rear seats with luxury head restraints.
In addition, the luxury individual seats impress with their leather upholstery, seat heating, large stowage compartment with cup holder between the individual seats (with a longitudinally divided armrest). The Sun Protection package with an electric roller blind for the rear window and manually-operated blinds in the rear doors as well as luxury double sun screens (extensible, two-piece folding, with vanity mirror) is also included in the exclusive scope of the package.
In the event of a collision, the Rear Seat Safety package can significantly reduce the risk of injury to passengers in the rear. The package consists of sidebags as well as adaptive belt force limiters for the outer seat positions in the rear.
The KEYLESS-GO package delivers even greater convenience. This electronic access and drive authorisation system enables the driver to access the vehicle and start the engine without using the vehicle key.
All the driver needs to do is carry the KEYLESS GO transponder and pull the door handle. The car is started by simply pressing the start/stop button. The HANDS-FREE ACCESS convenience function makes loading and unloading the boot easier, by opening or closing the boot lid automatically when a sensor detects that the driver has placed his foot under the rear of the car.
With the memory package the front seats, front seat head restraints, steering column and exterior mirrors can be adjusted electrically to any position.This increases convenience when there is a frequent change of drivers, storing the individual driver seat, steering column and exterior mirror settings for up to three people 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 a driver selects a setting with the touch of a button, electric controls automatically set the seat, exterior mirrors and steering column back to the previously saved positions. If the PRE-SAFE® system is activated, the front passenger seat can be moved automatically into a more favourable crash position. If the collision is then avoided, the multicontour seats are returned to their initial position once certain critical limit values are undercut.
The multicontour seats take pressure off the spine and can be precisely adjusted to the ergonomic characteristics of the driver and the front passenger. The pressure can be individually set in the variable air cushions of the seat backrest side bolsters and in the curvature of the lumbar area. The controls are at the side of the seat cushion, between seat surface and centre console.
The package also includes the PRE-SAFE® positioning function which enables preventive protection measures for driver and front passenger. If the PRE-SAFE® system detects a critical situation, the side bolsters of the backrest are inflated, providing lateral restraint for driver and front passenger. If a collision is avoided, the multicontour seats are deflated again once certain critical thresholds are undercut.
The Parking package helps the driver in tight parking and manoeuvring situations and comes with an innovation: A 360-degree camera system displays the vehicle's surroundings from a bird's-eye perspective on the screen of the COMAND Online multimedia system. The Parking package makes it easier to judge a situation in all manoeuvring situations by monitoring all four sides of the vehicle. By means of the visual display it also provides assistance to the driver in off-road excursions on arduous terrain and it can audibly and visually warn of obstacles in front of and behind the vehicle, thereby preventing damage when manoeuvring.
The Smoker package provides a conveniently positioned ashtray and cigarette lighter in the vehicle. The cigarette lighter also serves as a 12 Volt socket. The package takes the place of the front stowage compartment.
The electrically operated rear window roller sunblind protects the passengers from direct sunlight and reduces the temperature in the vehicle interio
The electric rear window blind can be conveniently operated from both the driver's seat and the front-passenger seat at the touch of a button. The blinds in the rear doors can also preserve the privacy of the vehicle. Thanks to perforations in the blind material, there is practically no sight restriction from inside the vehicle.
The automatic dimming function for the interior/exterior mirrors on the driver’s side helps to enhance safety and comfort. The exterior mirrors can be completely folded in/out electrically from the comfort of the operating panel. Whether you’re negotiating narrow entries and exits, parking the car or going through an automatic car wash, this protection helps prevent damage to the mirror housing and, consequently, repair costs.
Give your E-Class an even sportier look – with the optional Exterior Sports package. The lowered body, callipers on the front axle with Mercedes-Benz lettering and 5-twin-spoke light-alloy wheels lend your E-Class an exceptionally agile exterior appearance.
The equipment of the Exterior Sports package at a glance:
The tactile warning provided in the event of unintentional lane departure and the visual and acoustic warning of the presence of a vehicle in the blind spot contribute to reduce driver stress, in particular on long journeysThe innovative Lane Tracking Package includes Blind Spot Assist and Lane Keeping Assist and significantly enhances safety in road traffic.
The Lane Keeping Assist feature warns the driver by means of a discreet vibration of the steering wheel as soon as he unintentionally drifts across the lane markings which have been registered by the system, and leaves the lane he is in. If, prior to crossing the lane, the indicator had been actuated or the steering wheel firmly turned, the system assumes that the lane change is intentional and does not react.
