The Mercedes-Benz E-Class is the most expensive vehicle on the safest new car list for 2017, which shows that safety technology is not the exclusive privilege of the wealthy.
Highly praised for its comfort and luxury, which lifts it clear of its rivals from BMW, Audi and Jaguar, the new E-Class also offers a five-star safety rating from Euro NCAP and other features like an innovative junction assist system. But then, you would expect nothing less from a manufacturer which has long been at the forefront of automotive safety.
The E-Class saloon has been on the UK market since May 2016, with the estate version arriving in the second half of the year. Still to come is the recently-announced E-Class coupé, and presumably a cabriolet version will appear at some stage as well.
