Mercedes-Benz E 53 4Matic
Mercedes Benz E53 has subtle exterior distinctions, such as the chrome twin-blade diamond radiator grille, the AMG-specific side-sill panels, and the black accents on the chrome front splitter and outer air intake fins.
Mercedes-Benz E53 Description
- Mercedes-Benz E-Class models have been awarded test licenses for autonomous driving in the US state of Nevada. This is a world first, perfectly timed to coincide with the Consumer Electronics Show, or ‘CES’, held in Las Vegas.
Mercedes-Benz engineers spent just over two-and-a-half years refining the new E-class seats. It took that long to figure out how to make them wider, longer, more adjustable, better cushioned, and also lighter.
In the new E-Class, interstate driving isn’t something the driver has to do anymore. That’s right, this car will keep a speed, slow down if the car in front does, stay in its lane up to 130 mph, and change lanes automatically with nothing more than a touch of the turn signal. This is astounding technology.
Features & options
Audio & video
DRIVE PILOT is designed to operate the vehicle under certain conditions on fully access-controlled highways, such as Interstate Freeways. Under these conditions, the driver can engage DRIVE PILOT to operate the vehicle and afterward relax and focus on non-driving tasks provided by the vehicle’s multimedia system. When it’s time to leave the freeway, or if an unusual situation develops, such as approaching a crash scene or the occurrence of a malfunction, DRIVE PILOT will alert the user to resume driving, while maintaining vehicle control until the user is able to do so.
With the combined expertise of Burmester and Mercedes-Benz, intelligent algorithms and height speakers in the roof lining are put to use to provide the unique 3D sound. With 13 speakers, Frontbass technology and a DSP amplifier with a total output power of 590 watts, the system will also indulge the ears with natural and substance-rich sound.
The feature allows the car to park itself even in tight spaces. It uses on-board sensors to determine the distances of objects within the vicinity of the car like barriers and other vehicles. From there, it moves itself forward or backward in the available parking space while steering itself clear from obstacles. Mercedes even displayed that the system folds the car’s side mirrors automatically to enable it to effectively squeeze into very narrow areas. All these can be done through a remote control.
Active bonnet is designed to reduce head injury to pedestrians in a frontal impact. In the event of such an impact and when travelling above 20 km/h, sensors in the car’s front bumper send a signal to a control unit which in turn activates two gas propelled actuators. These actuators fire against a small plate attached to the bonnet on each side which instantly lifts the rear of the bonnet by 120mm.
