When you step inside the E-Class, you will notice that the interior doesn't compromise when it comes to materials. You are likely to find soft-touch materials, leather, and wood by just about everyone inside the cabin. What you won't find are cheap plastics which, sadly, are become more and more prominent in the luxury vehicle segment.

Also, the driver can get a little bit of excitement with some of the most potent powertrains. Finally, drivers who want high-tech features will enjoy the MBUX infotainment system.
