In the lead-up to the reveal of the sixth-generation E-class in 2024, Mercedes-Benz gave us a preview of what we can expect at least on the inside. The cockpit is an improvement of the Hyperscreen seen on the EQS sedan with the digital instrument panel extending above. The design is enhanced by the use of colored light strips of ambient illumination that wrap around the door and dash to emphasize the futuristic style.
Under all this is a wealth of modern technologies that are designed to improve enjoyment, comfort, and efficiency. The E-class is equipped with the latest MBUX infotainment system, which can be seen as a prelude towards the MB.OS architecture, which is expected within a couple of years.
Like the E-class dash, the EQS can be upgraded using an extra display in the rear of the vehicle. This lets the passenger play games or streamed content without distraction for the driver. Cameras monitor the driver’s eye movement and, if they shift toward the screen of the passenger and the content gets obliterated. Mercedes refers to it as image filtering.
2024 Mercedes Benz E-Class Sedan Redesign
If parked, the driver can use the numerous entertainment options available. This includes games like Angry Birds, social media on TikTok, and the Vivaldi internet browser. If you’re interested in productivity You can use Zoom to connect to meetings and there’s a built-in video as well as a selfie camera on the top of the screen. Transfer of data will be enhanced by the 5G connectivity.
For audio If you choose the best Burmester high-end audio system, then the ambient lighting will provide a lit spectacle for the listener. There’s either pulsing light which is in tune with the beat or smoother color shifts for more subtle music. We like this idea, but it can be a little snoozing in the evening.
When it comes to relaxing the current Energizing Comfort system gets an innovative enhancement. It integrates massage features for your seat together with climate control, internal music, fragrances, and graphics on the screen to establish certain moods. The new feature will connect this system to wearable screens to determine stress levels and trigger relaxation and breathing coaching to bring you back to a state of relaxation.
Another exciting new feature is something Mercedes refers to as routines. The user can pick from a range of routines that automatically activate heaters for seats at a particular temperature and also the lighting inside. There’s even a Date Night routine that will create a romantic atmosphere with pink-colored lighting and your preferred slow tunes. There’s also the option to design your routines. Shortly, Mercedes plans to include AI-generated routines based on your behavior.
Together with the extensive list of technological features that already are available with these new additions, they increase the awe factor, however, they aren’t the type that we’re hoping for from the upcoming MB.OS system. However, it will surely be a delight for passengers and owners with the latest technology and entertainment options.
