2016 Mercedes-Benz E-Class gets updated image

The Mercedes-Benz E-Class family has recently received a number of upgrades as the German based automaker has recently announced.

Mercedes-Benz has added several tweaks for the E-Class family but what the model actually needs is a new generation. However, keeping it interesting and offering some minor tweaks for it every couple of years may trick customers into thinking that this is brand new. The newest changes made to the luxury vehicle include the new internet enabled infotainment system with GPS navigation, which is offering a 4G wireless broadband internet connection with upload speeds up to 75 Mbps and download speeds of up to 300 Mbps.

“As standard the E-Class comes with a basic telephony feature, which connects the mobile phone with the vehicle via a standardized Bluetooth® interface and is fitted with a hands-free function. Optionally it can also be used with the new, fast LTE mobile phone network”, says the carmaker in its official press release.

The company has also added the Audio 20 CD as standard but it can alternatively offer the COMAND Online system with DVD single drive too. There is also a 7-inch high-res display for all systems, an optional Garmin MAP PILOT navigation system, voice control, text to speech, live traffic and several other tweaks. Another new addition to the E-Class range is the E 220 BlueTEC 4MATIC which is coming with 170 HP (125 kW) and 400 Nm of torque form the four-cylinder diesel engine. No pricing details on the “new” E-Class have been announced yet.
