Their interiors are top of the line as is known with Mercedes, wood or aluminium with colors such as the deep-sea blue to contrast with the silk beige are the main options not to mention the cluster instruments such as the dials in white, trapezoid-shaped full-colour TFT display and the analogue clock between the redesigned air outlets.

In the four-cylinder petrol engine with spray-guided direct injection, the technology brings about fast-acting piezo injectors for multiple injection, fast multi-spark ignition, turbocharging, fully variable camshaft adjustment on the inlet and exhaust side and a regulated oil pump.This is the world’s first use of the stratified lean-burn process in combination with exhaust-gas turbocharging and external high-pressure exhaust gas recirculation.
The V6 and V8 engines will also get this technology; the six-cylinder engine version is for the first time being offered as the E 400 with biturbo drive. All these engines meet the 2015 EU6 emissions limits. These powerhouses will be mated to a six-speed manual transmission and the 7G-Tronic Plus automatic transmission with Direct Select lever and shift paddles. Drivers will enjoy the new Momentary M mode which Momentary M mode which if the driver has shifted up or down manually, the transmission independently switches back to fuel-efficient automatic shift mode.
