Saloons on the street don’t come any more select than the E-Class Mercedes. In these 
times when many are going high-rise, the autumn arrival of this Germanic mid-range 
luxury saloon will unquestionably get folk clicking and considering. 
Looks wise, the 2024 E-Class will please those already acquainted. Like all saloons, it 
will be judged on the sum of its parts, engine, occupant and boot compartments. At 
the front, the long bonnet, Mercedes grill and LED headlamps, which come with day 
and night features, introduce you to the sophistication that is synonymous within all 
its seventy-five years. 
New customers will see the advancement created by designers, where they have 
brought the E-Class fully up-to-date in terms of technology, safety and comfort. The 
options of Airmatic air suspension and rear-axle steering are on the menu. With its 
slightly longer wheelbase, those within get increased headroom, greater rear leg and 
knee space, and a 25mm increase in elbow width. Luggage capacity has also 
increased up to 540 litres.  
Ciaran Allen, sales manager for Mercedes-Benz in Ireland, described the new E-Class 
as “a long-standing success story with a heritage that goes back to the very early days 
of the brand”, 

Tekkies will like the improvements, with a more software-driven approach boosting 
the performance and speed of data streams in a way that has led to a greater use of 
‘intelligent ‘functions, enhanced driver assistance features, better communications, a 
superior music and entertainment package, and a more extensive use of third-party 
apps. An available feature is one that allows the driver to participate in online video 

Already seen in the EQS, the MBUX Superscreen is an imposing feature through 
which the E-Class information, communications, entertainment and guidance 
systems are managed. Using its ‘Just Talk’ function and ‘intelligent voice control’ 
drivers can call-up assistance without using the keyword ‘Hey Mercedes’ all 
prompted by a red microphone symbol on the display indicating that the vehicle is 
ready and waiting for commands. 

Four petrol versions (E200, E300 e, E300 e 4MATIC and E 400 e 4MATIC) and two 
diesel versions (E220 d and E220 d 4MATIC) will make up the range at launch – 
three equipped with fourth-generation plug-in mild hybrid electric power. 
A new battery increases electric motor power from 15 to 17 kW and boosts torque to 
205 Nm.
