2011 Mercedes-Benz E Class Features

8.0
On Features

Mercedes will most likely tout the new Mercedes E-Class' cutting-edge safety features in its marketing material, but the 2011 Mercedes-Benz E-Class also boasts myriad high-tech comfort features.

Standard equipment includes cruise control, interior ambient lighting, dual-zone climate control, a multi-function instrument panel display, rain-sensing wipers, and more.

The 2011 Mercedes-Benz E-Class can't be considered a bargain with a minimum $48,850 MSRP, but its features list certainly justifies the price.

Luxury and entertainment features abound in the 2011 E-Class. Luxury versions feature standard 17-inch wheels; COMAND infotainment and climate control; cruise control; sunroof; power doors, locks, and mirrors; and surprisingly, vinyl seats.

Sport versions get larger 18-inch wheels; unique gauges; and stylized exhaust outlets. Optional upgrades include voice-controlled navigation; Sirius and HD Radio; rearview camera; heated seats; numerous electronic safety assists; massaging seats; Bluetooth; an upgraded, 610-watt audio system; and much more.

The E63 AMG gets a range of upgraded materials and a high-performance design theme, plus AMG badges and performance-tuned stability and traction electronics.

Two premium packages, a driver assistance package, a sport package, and a wheel package divide up most of these options into convenient groups. Many options can be had a la carte, as well, though it may be tough for those with peculiar tastes to find the exact combo they're looking for on a dealer lot.
