To expand the sale of the top-of-the-range vehicles, the automobile manufacturer introduced the Mercedes-Benz long wheelbase design that is specifically targeted at the Chinese market. This product has recorded huge success in China, effectively making the mission to expand the product line.
In China, vehicles that are considered to be prestigious are often used as chauffeured limos. With the growing market in the country being an important one for Mercedes-Benz, the manufacturer specially conceived and built the car for the China market.
Long-Wheel Base Design
The long-wheelbase version of the Mercedes-Benz E-Class has an extra 140 millimeters in its length. This is a major advantage for passengers in the rear seats. The extra length provides larger legroom.
The car is available in the Chinese market with two distinctly different front heads – as a sedan and as a sports sedan. The E-Class sedan has the three-dimensional saloon radiator grille with a three-louver look.
On the bonnet of the car is the trademark Mercedes-Benz star. On the other hand, the sports sedan is identifiable by the Mercedes-Benz star that is centrally positioned on the sporty front end. This gives it a distinctively dynamic look.
Mercedes-Benz Modern Aesthetics
When you think of any Mercedes-Benz model or class, you are likely to associate it with a sleek exterior design and modern aesthetics. The Mercedes-Benz long-wheel base has carried on these features to give you the Mercedes-Benz design theme of sensual purity.
The longer wheelbase is visible in the triangular windows that are meant to accommodate the stretched roof. The exterior design of the long-wheelbase Mercedes-Benz E-Class lends it an attractive side profile and combines a dynamic look with elegant appearance.
The car also features an elongated bonnet, an attractive roof line and a broad-shouldered tail end as you move towards the rear. All these curved surfaces work together to produce an exciting shape. Apart from the extended length of the vehicle, the exterior construction features a long wheelbase, short overhangs, well-defined planks and large wheels. With this, buyers can expect to get the fresh style and dynamism that is associated with Mercedes-Benz.

Driving Assistance Systems
Mercedes-Benz has been at the forefront of automobile manufacturing, producing vehicles that incorporate some of the best driver assistance and safety features. The safety features included in the long-wheelbase model are aimed at enhancing safety, comfort and providing driver assistance.

Another cutting-edge safety feature is the Attention Assist which is designed to warn the driver when they are inattentive or drowsy. This is closely related to the Crosswind Assist which warns in the events that strong crosswinds are likely to get the car too far off the track.
