Yet another video has surfaced the web with the next generation Mercedes-Benz E-Class and this time we take a better look at the interior.
The final pieces of the puzzle are starting to add up for the new E-Class W213. The exterior was pretty much uncovered in recent spy shots and videos, however, the interior remained somewhat a mystery, until now. The attached footage comes to reconfirm the new E-Class will be a mixture of the C-Class and S-Class on the inside as well.
Although the dashboard remains hidden, previous prototypes have been spotted carrying the same dual digital screen layout of the S-Class where each display has a generous 12.3-inch size. The four central air vents will also be sourced from its bigger brother while the rest of the cabin bits and pieces will be pretty much adapted from the other two cars, especially from the C.
Should the rear legroom not suffice, Mercedes-Benz is working on an extended wheelbase E-Class with more space in the back. The outgoing E has a LWB model, but it’s only sold in China whereas the new one will be a global model. There is reason to believe it will be part of the newly founded Mercedes-Maybach sub-brand and will have individual rear seats, so it will be a lot more expensive than the standard C and price-wise could get dangerously close to a base S. But Daimler knows how to do business and they will make sure the two won’t overlap.
An official reveal of the standard wheelbase sedan will occur in January at NAIAS, but here’s hoping the first images and details will pop up online before the end of the year.
