Thanks to the omission of a cockpit cowl, the main body of the instrument panel with its trim extends from one front door to the other behind the seemingly free-floating widescreen. The trim elements have been structured in so-called “wrap-around” design and the choice of materials (e.g. open-pore wood) underlines the progressive, modern positioning as the top interior in this class. The total of five round air vents in the A-Class are given a new turbine look inspired by the world of aviation. Finely designed air vanes in a concentric arrangement create the impression of a jet aircraft turbine. As part of one equipment line the vent surround is emphasised in colour at the rear of the vent geometry, giving the impression of an afterburner. The air vents in the centre are driver-oriented, accentuating the sportiness of the interior. In the new GLE, the central nozzles, also known as square nozzles, with their four-fold signature design familiar from the S-Class and E-Class, are staged in a striking, SUV style to emphasise their width. The interior has been designed with great attention to detail featuring ambient lighting like never before.
