While this is like previous E-Class cars in having a controller on the console for choosing navigation, music, phone contacts and other functions, these steering-wheel-mounted controls are new. The glossy black component is actually a solid-state touch sensor, which lets you drag across and vertically to scroll through menus.

Even better, you can get into the system settings and completely change the look of the instrument panel. These black-and-yellow gauges are intended to give the panel a sport look.
