FASTLANE

In­tel­li­gent, So­phis­ti­cated and Dy­namic

Asia Dreams - - CONTENTS -

The lat­est gen­er­a­tion of the pres­ti­gious Mercedes-benz E-class graces the pages in Fastlane where we look at this so­phis­ti­cated and dy­namic ve­hi­cle.

Build­ing on the mar­ket pres­ence es­tab­lished by its pre­de­ces­sors, the lat­est gen­er­a­tion of the pres­ti­gious Mercedes­benz E-class is aes­thet­i­cally strik­ing, tech­ni­cally ad­vanced and a pure plea­sure to own and drive.

Re­cently launched in Jakarta, the lat­est E-class model, the all-new E200 Avant­garde Line sa­loon has a dis­tinct, emo­tive and sleek ex­te­rior com­ple­mented by a high-qual­ity, stylish in­te­rior. The in­tu­itive in­fo­tain­ment, con­trol and park­ing sys­tems along with a col­lec­tion of tech­ni­cal in­no­va­tions pro­pel the com­fort and driv­ing ex­pe­ri­ence to an all new level.

DE­SIGN

The ex­te­rior fea­tures el­e­gant lines which, along with the dual-flared head­lights, elon­gated bon­net and coupé-style roof and the sculp­tured side pan­elling craft a so­phis­ti­cated, sleek and sen­sual look. The lat­est E-class is marginally larger than the last model and with short over­hangs, a long wheel­base and styl­ized al­loy wheels, the E200 ap­pears poised, fresh, dy­namic and ea­ger.

The high-qual­ity cabin is a con­tem­po­rary take on the clas­sic E-class in­te­rior with a mix of ad­vanced ma­te­ri­als, Ar­tico leather, pol­ished alu­minium and hi-grade plas­tics. There’s also a host of er­gonomic and de­sign im­prove­ments in­clud­ing fully elec­tri­cally ad­justed seats de­signed to pro­vide max­i­mum com­fort and sup­port over long dis­tances, the cur­va­ceous door and cen­tre-con­sole trim, wide-screen vis­i­bil­ity and at­mo­spheric LED in­te­rior light­ing with 64 colours.

For added com­fort the cabin is slightly larger and airier and ben­e­fits from im­proved rear legroom and has plenty of stor­age, a must in the mod­ern world. The boot is a load-swal­low­ing 540-litre ca­pac­ity, ideal for golf, shop­ping and busi­ness trips.

TECH

Key tech­ni­cal ad­vance­ments in­clude touch-sen­si­tive con­trols on the steer­ing wheel that re­spond pre­cisely to hor­i­zon­tal and ver­ti­cal swip­ing move­ments, (like your smart­phone) al­low­ing the driver to con­trol the en­tire in­fo­tain­ment sys­tem us­ing fin­ger swipes and with­out hav­ing to take their hands off the steer­ing wheel. In ad­di­tion the in­fo­tain­ment sys­tem can be con­trolled via a touch­pad in the cen­tre con­sole which also gives di­rect con­trol of other sys­tems

such as nav­i­ga­tion and air-con­di­tion­ing in a more tra­di­tional man­ner.

To make park­ing eas­ier, the E200 Avant­garde Line comes stan­dard with Park­ing Pilot, Mercedes-benz’s in­no­va­tive sys­tem that helps choose a space and can ma­noeu­vre the ve­hi­cle au­to­mat­i­cally for per­fect place­ment. There’s also com­plete smart­phone in­te­gra­tion and wire­less charg­ing for your con­ve­nience and the wire­less, in­duc­tive charg­ing sys­tem works with all mo­bile de­vices that sup­port the Qi stan­dard. It’s also pos­si­ble to use Ap­ple’s smart­phone-based in­fo­tain­ment sys­tem Carplay® as well as Google’s An­droid Auto™.

Fit­ted with a four-cylin­der, 2-litre tur­bocharged petrol en­gine cou­pled with the new fast and smooth 9G-TRONIC nine-speed au­to­matic trans­mis­sion as stan­dard, the pow­er­train de­liv­ers an im­pres­sive 184HP. The sus­pen­sion set up gives the high­est level of ride com­fort in the seg­ment.

The E200 Avant­garde Line suc­cess­fully builds upon the long Mercedes-benz ex­ec­u­tive sa­loon pedi­gree and will ap­peal to both those loyal to the mar­que and new own­ers who value qual­ity, style and pres­tige. mercedes-benz.co.id
