New seats were designed for the E-Class to meet the highest requirements for seating comfort, ergonomics and safety.
The standard seats with their well-contoured upholstery provide optimum support even during sportier drives and allow for relaxed driving on long journeys as well. Active multicontour seats are available as an option for the driver and front passenger. Their separately controlled air chambers can be optimally set to suit an individual’s stature and the seat side bolsters automatically and dynamically adapt to the driving situation. Seat cushion length, seat side bolsters and lumbar support can be adjusted pneumatically. Additional comfort is provided by a dynamic massage function in seven zones. These are just some reasons why the active multicontour seats were awarded the quality seal by the Aktion Gesunder Rücken e.V., a German association promoting products for healthy backs.
The front seats are available with a partially-electric seat adjustment as standard, and optionally with full electrical adjustment. The switches for this are clearly arranged in the doors. If the optional Memory package is ordered, a total of three position settings can be stored for the driver’s seat, the steering column and the exterior mirrors.
Generosity reaches new heights in the rear of the new E-Class – in particular with the optional rear comfort package. Special highlights include luxury head restraints and a generous stowage box in the centre. The seats then also feature leather upholstery, seat heating and sunblinds on the rear doors, a rear window blind and an armrest with two integrated drink holders.
