A new generation of E-Class began its successful journey a quarter of a century ago: in 1995, Mercedes-Benz introduced the 210 model series. It was the first time the E-Class with twin headlamps looked out at the world and promptly received the “red dot” design award. Another premiere in the luxury class was the choice between three design and equipment lines: CLASSIC, ELEGANCE and AVANTGARDE. The standard equipment included countless technical highlights from the electronic traction system (ETS) to the seat belt force limiter. Further innovations such as side airbags – a world premiere in this market segment – rain sensors and xenon headlamps were also available as special equipment.
