The press service of the German automaker has published photos that capture the interior of the new Mercedes E-Class 2021 model year in the back of a coupe and convertible.

The Mercedes advertising campaign, which is designed for the updated E-Class Coupe and E-Class Convertible (convertible) is in full swing – the cars will be presented to us on May 27th. This time, the premium brand decided to show us the interior of the new products with the updated MBUX infotainment system, replacing the old COMAND complex. New items will receive two screens measuring 10.25 inches.

 The most noticeable change in the cabin will undoubtedly be the steering wheel. Introduced earlier this year on the E-Class sedan and station wagon, a four-spoke steering wheel will also be offered in the next generation of the S-Class executive, as evidenced by the “spy” images of the latter. For the updated E-Class, steering wheel design with genuine leather and wood will be offered.

 The spokes have a glossy black finish and contain touch controls that have now received capacitive sensors, and the rim itself has built-in capacitive sensors to determine whether the driver’s hands are on the steering wheel.

If the sensors on the rim do not detect the driver’s hands for a certain amount of time, warnings are issued and ultimately the emergency brake is activated. Speaking of the safety kit, the 2021 E-Class comes with active systems, including assistance when stopping and driving, assistance with taxiing, assistance with braking and active monitoring of vehicles in the blind zone. There is even automatic parking.

 The transition to the latest and greatest Mercedes infotainment system will be accompanied by support for advanced navigation technology, which virtually eliminates the possibility for the driver to miss a turn. Details such as navigation arrows and house numbers are superimposed directly on the image on the MBUX display, while traffic light control is also available where infrastructure allows.
