The New Era of Personalized Entertainment: The Mercedes-Benz E-Class
by FARUK IMAMOVIC | VIEW 212
The Mercedes-Benz E-Class has always been known for its luxurious interior and cutting-edge technology. With the launch of the latest model, the E-Class continues to set new standards in terms of personalization and entertainment.
With the integration of advanced digital innovations, the E-Class is now more intelligent and interactive than ever before.
Intelligent Architecture for a Smarter Experience
Mercedes-Benz has taken the electronic architecture of the E-Class to the next level by making it more software-driven and less hardware-driven.
This forms the basis for more individual updates of internal systems in the future. The screens and the MBUX infotainment system now share a new, very powerful central computer, which improves performance and enables faster data transfers.
The MBUX Entertainment Plus package, which includes hardware, Mercedes me Connect Services, and data packages from other providers, will be available for the new E-Class. Depending on the market, a communication module with 5G transmission technology will be used to further enhance the entertainment experience.
A Sensory Experience: Sound Visualization
With the new active ambient lighting with sound visualization, passengers in the E-Class can experience music with three senses. Parts of music and sound from movies or apps can be heard (with the optional Dolby Atmos® technology), felt (from the optional Burmester® 4D surround sound system), and now also seen.
The visualization takes place on the light strip of the active ambient lighting, with fast rhythm sequences triggering rapid light changes and flowing rhythms creating gentle lighting moods. The entertainment experience in the E-Class is also more interactive than ever before.
The software experts at Mercedes-Benz have developed a compatibility layer that allows the installation of applications from other providers. Applications such as TikTok, Angry Birds, Webex, Zoom, Vivaldi, and more are available on the central display.
The ZYNC entertainment portal (optional) offers video streaming, on-demand content, interactive experiences, local video programming, sports, news, games, and more on the central and passenger display.
Convenient and Personalized: Routines and AI
Mercedes-Benz is using artificial intelligence (AI) to make daily life in the E-Class even more convenient.
The car can learn which comfort systems its passengers use repeatedly and automate them given the same circumstances. This is known as personalized automation or "routines". At the launch of the new E-Class, customers will be able to use templates for standard routines or create their own by connecting several functions and conditions.
For an enhanced wellness experience, the E-Class offers ENERGIZING COMFORT and THERMOTRONIC with digital ventilation control (both optional). ENERGIZING COMFORT offers a comprehensive wellness program with variously configured programs and recommendations from the ENERGIZING COACH system.
THERMOTRONIC automatic climate control improves the comfort experience by automatically adjusting the front ventilation openings according to the desired ventilation scenario.
A Sporty and High-Quality Interior
The interior of the E-Class is sporty, high-quality, and digital.
The instrument panel shapes the digital experience in the interior, with a large glass area and newly designed icons that are simpler and color-coded to match the icon design on smartphones. The optional passenger screen and the high-resolution instrument panel display in the driver's field of vision complete the visual experience.
