Available now from your authorised Mercedes-Benz dealer: Genuine accessories for the new E-Class
Mobility today is about more than just getting from A to B. With the multimedia products from the Genuine Accessories range, the driver of the new E-Class is mobile on the World Wide Web, too:
The Mercedes-Benz InCar Hotspot brings the internet to the E-Class. This is a special wireless router which uses a data-compatible SIM card and the vehicle's roof aerial to establish a wireless internet connection even when the car is on the move. A WiFi-enabled device of some sort (laptop, tablet computer, mobile phone, MP3 player) is all that is required.
The Drive Kit Plus for the iPhone®, in conjunction with the "Digital DriveStyle" app developed in-house by Daimler, allows seamless integration of iPhone® models 4 and 4S into the E-Class  . Highlights include Siri voice control, the advanced navigation solution from Garmin® with internet-based real-time traffic information, Google® online POI search including Street View™ and 3D map view as well as the real-time location sharing system Glympse®. Additional functions include Facebook®, Twitter® and AUPEO!™ Personal Radio, as well as internet radio covering national and international stations.
The Mercedes-Benz telephone module with Bluetooth® (SAP) also incorporates a host of multimedia functions. Featuring an integrated UMTS module connected directly to the vehicle's exterior aerial, it provides COMAND Online with a fast, stable and secure internet connection.
The iPad® rear integration Plus docking station offers an ergonomic and safe means of installing Apple® tablet PC models in the rear of the vehicle, whereby all their customary functions are maintained. First-class entertainment in the second row is also made possible by the Rear Seat Entertainment System, which comprises two 17.8 cm displays with integrated DVD player, USB and SD card slot, infrared headphones and infrared remote control.
Genuine individualisation with Mercedes-Benz Sport Equipment
Mercedes-Benz Sport Equipment is the label under which Mercedes-Benz offers a range of elegant yet sporty individualisation products. The following highlights have now been added to the range for the new E-Class:
The front-apron spoiler lip emphasises the vehicle's width and lends the front end an apparently lower centre of gravity. The spoiler lip is made of dimensionally stable polyurethane. The primed add-on part, which does not have to be registered in the vehicle documents, can be painted by your authorised Mercedes-Benz dealer in the colour of your choice and duly fitted.
The 5-twin-spoke wheel lends the new E-Class an elegantly sporty look, thanks to its matt black and high-sheen finish. The new wheel from Mercedes-Benz Sport Equipment is available in size 8.5 J x 19 ET 48 for the front axle and 9.5 J x 19 ET 48 for the rear axle.
An unusual night-time appearance is provided by the illuminated Mercedes star , available for vehicles with a centrally positioned star. Fibre-optic cables and LED lights illuminate the central star on the radiator grille when the car is locked and unlocked by remote control and when doors or the luggage compartment are opened.
Everything with you, wherever you go: Carrier systems and roof boxes
The large luggage compartments of the E-Class Saloon and Estate have traditionally made these vehicles a popular choice for families. Their transport capacities can be further increased with Genuine Accessories:
A collapsible rear-mounted cycle rack for the trailer coupling is available, for example, enabling the transportation of two or three bicycles. As a practical feature, an ingenious pull-out mechanism allows continued use of the luggage compartment. Those who prefer to transport items on the vehicle's roof can combine the Alustyle basic carrier (Saloon) or the Alustyle Easy-Fix II basic carrier bars (Estate) with the very light New Alustyle cycle rack, for example.
Genuine roof boxes by Mercedes-Benz are available in three sizes. The models with a capacity of 330, 400 and 450 litres can be opened from either side. The 3-bolt system on the lockable transport containers provides effective protection from would-be pilferers.
The Genuine Accessories for the new E-Class and the new Accessories catalogue are available from authorised Mercedes-Benz dealers now. Further information is available at www.mercedes-benz-accessories.com/e-class and www.mercedes-benz-accessories.com/e-class-movie.
Highest standards of quality and safety
The product range from Mercedes-Benz Accessories GmbH meets the same stringent standards of quality and safety that Mercedes-Benz also demands of its vehicles. All products are subject to a meticulous preselection process, exhaustive approval procedures, regular checks and strict manufacturing tolerances. The internal standards applied by Mercedes-Benz are far more exacting than the statutory requirements.
