The Cockpit Management and Data (COMAND®) system offers intuitive access to a world of entertainment, navigation and convenience. The central controller falls naturally to hand, teaming an intuitive touchpad with a rotary knob and one-touch keys for major functions. The touchpad responds to a variety of finger motions, including swipe, pinch and even handwriting.
Two smartphone-like pads control nearly all the car's features without taking a hand from the wheel. Swipe and select from the central screen with your right thumb. Change settings on the screen between the gauges with your left.
The E300's turbo engine squeezes more power from less fuel, atomizing and itemizing every drop, and self-tuning every few milliseconds. A new 9-speed transmission responds more quickly yet relaxes more efficiently.
DRIVE PILOT takes intelligent cruise control in a new direction: sideways. It can stop and go with the flow, and help you stay between the lines, even in curves. And now you can change lanes with just a touch of the turn-signal lever.
Featuring a high-resolution color display and a central controller on the console, the Cockpit Management and Data (COMAND®) system gives you convenient control of entertainment, hands-free calling, optional navigation and numerous comfort functions. Many features can also be accessed via the integrated steering-wheel controls.
Bluetooth audio streaming makes it even easier to enjoy your digital music player. It allows you to connect your Bluetooth-equipped iPod® or other MP3 player wirelessly to your vehicle's audio system for convenient, cable-free playback.
A 3-pod gauge cluster captures the personality of the E-Class: an ideal balance of performance and panache. A timeless tradition of craftsmanship is apparent even in modern materials like the sleek metallic trim. Hand-polished wood complements hand-fitted upholstery in a wide palette of colors. And a classic analog clock celebrates iconic Mercedes-Benz sedans of the past, even as the multifunction steering wheel, central controller and standard COMAND® system put the future at your fingertips.
Separate left and right digital temperature controls allow the driver and front passenger to enjoy personalized comfort. In addition to fully automatic or manual control of blower speed and airflow distribution, the system includes sun and humidity sensors, and an integrated filtration system that helps remove dust, pollen and even odors from the cabin air.

Radar-based technology alerts you if you're approaching a vehicle ahead, or even some stationary objects, at a speed and distance that suggest a collision is likely. As soon as the driver starts to brake, its Adaptive Brake Assist automatically provides the ideal level of braking, to help prevent a collision or reduce its severity. The system can also provide autonomous braking from speeds up to 65 mph, and can activate the features of PRE-SAFE®.
The first system of its kind, ATTENTION ASSIST® continuously monitors up to 70 parameters of driving behavior, and can automatically alert the driver with both visual and audible warnings if it detects signs of drowsiness on long trips. With enhanced sensitivity, the system can also help detect drivers who begin their trip drowsy, and offer more useful information to drivers along their journey via the dashboard display.
