STUTTGART -- The redesigned Mercedes-Benz E-class sedan going on sale next year will feature interior design elements that the automaker calls industry firsts.
The interior of the next-generation E class, unveiled last week by the automaker, draws from the Intelligent Aerodynamic Automobile design concept that Mercedes-Benz displayed at the Frankfurt auto show in September.
It boasts a wide, high-resolution dual display and newly designed touch-sensitive control buttons on the steering wheel that reduce the number of buttons on the wheel.
The redesigned E class will make its world debut at the Detroit auto show in January. Mercedes-Benz hasn't revealed the exterior design, but it is expected to adopt styling cues from the company's flagship S class.
