Site/Wochit Look, without hands: Daimler’s autopilot in the first motorway test
Site editor Sebastian Viehmann (Lisbon)
With the new E-Class, Mercedes 5 Series BMW and Audi A6 wants to drive to the wall. The sharpest weapons are driving comfort, "Steve Jobs Memory Cockpit" and the new autopilot. We tested it on public roads – including "dead man"-function.
The struggle for the left motorway lane is open again. This time Mercedes is ahead of Mercedes – at least in time: the new E -Class is already there, while the new BMW 5 Series at the end of the year and the new Audi A6 will not even roll up in 2017. And in this premium league, in which some customers spend the price of a new city apartment for a car without batting, you have to have a lot to offer.Mercedes tries with a mix of classic virtues (driving comfort, ambience) and high -tech. Highlight is the new autopilot, "Drive pilot" called. But does he also think what he promises? For the first time you could now test the system and the whole Benz on public roads.

Steve Jobs Memory Cockpit
The first impression: everything as always in the thick Benz, which is a bit longer at 4.92 meters than its predecessor. You can fall into cozy armchairs is happy about the pleasantly unexplained cockpit with not too many switches and buttons. Double -glazed slices (unfortunately cost surcharge, like so much in this car), hold the annoying world where it belongs: outside.
Mercedes Cockpit of the new E-Class. There are three different instruments/displays – in the picture the top version with two large screens
The hammer is that "Steve Jobs Memory Cockpit": A huge screen in the iPhone look almost takes up the entire dashboard. Instead of perpendicular as in the Tesla Model S – the car that somehow all have to imitate – the two -part screen (12.3 inches each) was placed across the BENT. When getting in it is black, then the completely digital instrument board in front of the driver and finally the navigation display lights up.
Mercedes What would taxi drivers do without Mercedes?
Big downer: Neither the navigation system nor the digital cockpit are standard on board. In the basic version you look at normal round instruments in the Mercedes "most intelligent business sedan in the world" – Tube TV, so to speak, instead of flat screen. According to Daimler, the reason is that there had to be a slimmed -down basic version for taxi drivers. May be stupid anyway.
Chassis and driving behavior
Classic virtues-which not only appreciate droschken pilots-has the E-Class as ever: thanks to (optional) air suspension, which works with a multi-chamber system and therefore becomes a bit tighter while it becomes a bit more tighter while Almost every bump in city traffic without swallowing the chassis without the quietest rulpser. The steering is smooth and perfect for the big star cruiser. This remains trimmed in comparison to Audi A6 or BMW 5 and not at lap times. At least until the AMG versions roll.

Despite its lush dimensions, the E-Class remains well in the frame even in fast curves, the empty weight (depending on version 1.6 to 1.7 tons) remains within the framework. An ideal choice was the always standard nungang automatic. Perhaps it sometimes switches a nuance slower than the eight-speed machines from BMW, but buttery soft. Typical Mercedes (at least for several years): The automatic selection lever is not in the middle of the car, but on the steering wheel.
Autopilot at – Read newspaper now?
The most exciting thing about the new Benz is of course that "Drive pilot". It also does not exist as standard, but only at the end of an assistance system-"cascade", which begins with the standard cruise control and the Drive pilot including distance control, automatic track guide and traffic sign detection with automatic speed adjustment ends. But how does the car (train) work in practice? More on the next page!
