If you’ve ever felt the urge to whip off a TikTok video in the car, perhaps the new Mercedes E-Class is the car for you.

The German automaker has just given us our first look inside the cockpit of its new sedan, and it’s an absolute tech-fest.

The first thing that stands out is its dashboard, which is home to a huge array of displays.

Mercedes E-Class superscreen

The 2024 E-Class will be offered with an optional triple-display Mercedes-Benz User Experience (MBUX) Superscreen.

It’s a slightly scaled-down version of the MBUX Hyperscreen that previously debuted in the EQS.

It’s a sizable infotainment system, which even includes an optional display for the front passenger.


It’s a really clever bit of kit that only activates if the car senses a passenger present.

It also uses dual light control display tech to reduce visibility from the driver’s seat.

That’s not the only trick the MBUX Superscreen has up its sleeve, though.

Mounted to the top of the dash is a new selfie and video camera.

So you can take photos and videos to your heart’s content (as long as you’re in park).

You’ll even be able to install third-party apps directly, instead of having to mirror them via Android Auto or Apple CarPlay.

Mercedes says that it’s launching an App Store that will have a “gradually expanding portfolio of apps.”

To start with, the Mercedes E-Class will come with an assortment of apps, like Angry Birds, TikTok, Zoom, and Webex.

Aside from the screens, the E-Class will come with an active ambient lighting system, too.

That’s in addition to a 17-speaker Burmester 4D surround system, for when the tunes are pumping.

Speaking of which, the active light system responds to your music, with fast sequences causing rapid changes, while “flowing rhythms can create softly merging lighting moods.”

Mercedes didn’t reveal much about the rest of the interior, but those of you who are eagle-eyed will spot a new steering wheel and a minimalist center console.

Those Nappa leather seats with diamond quilting look super comfy, too.
