2024 Mercedes Benz E-Class Sedan’s Interior Looks Comfy, Tech-Heavy

  • Mercedes-Benz has revealed the interior of the upcoming 2024 E-Class sedan.
  • It features a gigantic Hyperscreen and many new technology options.
  • The 2024 E-Class will go on sale in the US later this year.

Ahead of the unveiling of the new sixth-generation 2024 E-Class, Mercedes-Benz has given us a preview of what to expect – at least from the interior. The cockpit appears to be an evolution of the striking Hyperscreen found in the EQS sedan, with the digital instrument panel protruding above. This is accentuated by colored ambient lighting strips that surround the dashboard and doors to reinforce the futuristic styling.

Beneath it all lies a plethora of new technology intended to improve comfort, entertainment and productivity. The new E-Class uses the latest third-generation MBUX infotainment system, which can be considered a precursor to the MB.OS architecture that will be available in a few years.

As is the case with the EQS, the E-Class dashboard can be selected with an additional screen for the front passenger. This allows the passenger to enjoy streaming content and games without distracting the driver. Cameras track the driver’s eye movements and if they zoom to the passenger screen, the content is blacked out. Mercedes calls it image filtering.

Entertainment and audio

When parked, the driver can make use of the many entertainment options. This includes games like Angry Birds, social media on TikTok and a Vivaldi web browser. If you’re more about productivity, you can use Zoom to join meetings and there’s a built-in video and selfie camera on top of the dash. Data transfer will also be aided by 5G connectivity.

On the sound front, if you opt for the top Burmester premium sound, the interior ambient lighting can give you a light show. You’ll either get pulsating lighting to match the beat or smoother color transitions for more low-key music. We think it’s a fun novelty, but it can get tiresome at night.

Sit back and relax

In terms of relaxation, the existing Energizing Comfort system gets a smart addition. The system combines seat massage functions with climate control, interior fragrances, music and screen graphics to set specific moods. A new feature will link the system with wearable monitors to track stress levels and can trigger relaxation and breathing coaching to return you to a more blissful state.

Another new feature is something Mercedes calls routines. Users can choose from several templates that can automatically activate seat heaters at a certain temperature along with the interior lighting. There’s even a Date Night routine that will set the mood with rosy lighting and your favorite slow jam. You also have the ability to create your own routines. In the future, Mercedes plans to include AI-generated routines based on your specific habits.

Combined with the long list of tech features that already exist, these new features increase the wow factor, but don’t represent the kind of transformation we expect from the upcoming MB.OS system. Nevertheless, it should delight owners and passengers with its latest comfort and entertainment options.

Mercedes says that the 2024 E-Class will go on sale in the US later this year, so we expect to see more of the new sedan revealed in the next few months.
