Vehicle Profile: 2021 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Sedan
Prepare yourself for the next evolution in luxury
In many ways, the 2021 Mercedes-Benz E-Class embodies what makes the automaker’s vehicles so popular: an exquisite design, a lavish interior and an exhilarating performance. Having received a new look this year, the refreshed Mercedes-Benz E-Class flaunts a style that’s both sporty and sophisticated from tip to tail.
An attractive, modern look
The first element you’ll notice about the 2021 Mercedes-Benz E-Class is its reformed fascia. The front is more pronounced, from its new, standard LED headlamps to its refined grille with chrome pins. Its wide, low front end harmonizes with the elongated hood, giving the sedan a slung-back look. Its rear end is also reshaped, sporting dynamic new tail lamp forms and a more pronounced deck lid. Inside, Mercedes-Benz has redone the cabin, too. You now have the option of selecting new types of upholstery and dashboard materials to give your 2021 E-Class a customized style.
An array of engine and performance configurations
A luxury sedan’s performance should live up to the anticipation its appearance promises, and the 2021 E-Class undeniably follows through. The base engine on the 2021 E 350 is the 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbo motor that yields 255 horsepower and 273 lb-ft of torque to give the car a nimble and swift performance style. On the upgraded 2021 E 450 model, that engine is replaced with a robust 3.0-liter inline six-cylinder engine that boosts output to 362 horsepower and 369 lb-ft of torque — resulting in a positively exhilarating drive. This engine can be paired with EQ Boost on the 2021 AMG® E 53, a 48-volt AMG®-enhanced system that adds 21 additional horsepower. You can also replace the standard rear-wheel drivetrain with the brand’s signature 4MATIC® all-wheel drive system.
The top-of-the-line 2021 AMG® E 63 S with a 4.0-liter V8 bi-turbo engine launches the car from a stand-still to 60 mph in 3.3 seconds. Other AMG® enhancements include AMG® Ride Control sport suspension with a multi-chamber air suspension design, AMG® Drive Unit controls and a SPEEDSHIFT® TCT 9G nine-speed transmission for consistent, precise responsiveness.
An abundance of new technology
Where Mercedes-Benz truly enhanced the latest 2021 E-Class line is in the abundance of cutting-edge technology it possesses. The highlight is the latest Intelligent Drive and driver assistance systems. Intelligent hands-off detection monitors your hands’ presence on the steering wheel and applies Active Emergency Stop Assist if it detects that you’re not holding the wheel anymore. Active Steering Assist, Active Blind Spot Assist and Active Distance Assist DISTRONIC® make driving in traffic easier by monitoring your surroundings and automatically adjusting your trajectory and movement when necessary to keep you safe. Driving the 2021 E-Class is also easier this year thanks to the addition of a new-generation steering wheel design with Touch Control Buttons.
The Mercedes-Benz User Experience is boosted, too. Its voice controls and Touchpad are enhanced for better input recognition and responsiveness, and MBUX now possesses functions like Augmented Video for Navigation and Interior Assistant for greater accessibility and intuition.
The 2021 Mercedes-Benz E-Class puts the power in your hands, elevating your ride to new heights. It’s the pinnacle of modern luxury driving that only Mercedes-Benz can deliver.
