Mercedes-Benz E-Class named UK Car of the Year 2017

Mercedes-Benz E-Class Car of the Year 2017

The Mercedes-Benz E-Class saloon has been named Car of the Year at the UK Car of the Year Awards 2017, voted for by a panel of 27 of the country’s most influential motoring journalists.

Krishan Bodhani, head of smart and product management, Mercedes-Benz Cars UK, said: “The E-Class is one of our core models; it’s at the very heart of our brand.

"When we unveiled the all-new car last year it showcased a host of innovative technology which makes it one of the most advanced cars in its segment.

"Together with its modern, comfortable cabin the E-Class presents a very desirable package – it’s great to see it getting the recognition it deserves.”

John Challen, director of the UK Car of the Year Awards, added: “Mercedes-Benz has a long history of creating impressive saloon cars and the new E-Class continues this trend, raising the bar in the executive vehicle sector.

"Stunning inside and out, it takes driver and passengers into the realms of luxury. The level of technology – and the attention to detail – at your fingertips is astounding."

In 2016, Mercedes-Benz sold more than 12,000 new E-Class Saloons. The E-Class estate was launched in September 2016, while the E-Class coupé is available to order now with first cars arriving from May 2017.

For the first time, the E 220d saloon and estate are available with either rear-wheel or four-wheel drive.
