Tell me about the cabin
Although we have yet to see the new car’s cabin layout, expect it to mimic the layout and architecture of the bigger S-class, with an integral high-mounted colour screen alongside the backlit instrument panel, sleek and clean button-light dash and the Comand multi-controller. Further options will include a high-speed DVD-based sat-nav system, hard-drive based MP3-compatible audio system and infrared-based night vision.
Mercedes has also paid particular attention to ensuring perceived build quality and outright reliability will be above reproach. Hurt by less than impressive customer satisfaction ratings both in Europe and America, the E-class programme engineers have been told to deliver a car that doesn’t understand the concept of breaking down.
