W213 Mercedes-Benz E-Class interior has two 12.3-inch screens

Mercedes-Benz has taken the unusual step of revealing the look of the interior of the W213 E-Class that’s due next year, and it looks a lot like the S-Class’.

The design is very much like the S-Class (the upper portion, at least) melded with the center stack of the C-Class. Most models will feature two 12.3-inch full HD (1,920 x 1,080) displays, one for the instrument panel ahead of the driver and one of the Comand infotainment system.

Base models will have a physical instrument pack with a smaller 7-inch info screen (1,000 x 600) wedged between the dials, and a 8.4-inch (960 x 540).

Other features revealed include touch sensitive buttons on the steering wheel, multi-touch touchpad in the center console, LED ambient interior lighting with 64 color settings, Burmeister 3D surround sound system, and Multibeam LED headlights that can block out sections of light to avoid blinding other road users.

Spy photos have shown that the new W213 Mercedes-Benz E-Class will look like a mid-size version of the C-Class and S-Class sedan that bookend it.
