Mercedes-Benz has long been a symbol of luxury and refinement, and the 2017 E-Class is no exception. The 2017 E-Class ushers in a number of changes, beginning with a redesigned exterior featuring innovative “twin torch” headlamps, gracefully flowing body lines and a distinctly Mercedes-Benz front grille. The body is slightly larger than its predecessor, with a wheelbase increase of 2.6 inches and nearly two inches of added body length. The E-Class is clearly built for luxury, but Mercedes hasn’t sacrificed a sleek, sporty aesthetic in the process.

The main attractions, however, are mostly inside the cabin. The cockpit is packed full with features and technologies that allow the E-Class to live up to its branding as the “smartest” sedan ever built. Capitalizing on the latest trends in automation, Mercedes-Benz has fitted the E-Class with its Drive Pilot technology, which allows for up to a full minute of unassisted driving. The system employs an interconnected web of technologies, including a front-facing radar, a stereo camera in the windshield and rear-mounted sensors, to provide an intelligent, automated driving experience that can even switch lanes automatically simply by using the turn signal.

Along with the Drive Pilot system, the E-Class also features a whole host of other automated systems and driving aids. Active Brake Assist is able to activate the brakes if the driver fails to stop at an intersection with cross traffic. Evasive Steering Assist provides a helping hand for stabilizing the vehicle if the driver is forced to swerve quickly to avoid obstacles or other road hazards.

The Pre-Safe Impulse Side system activates inflatable bladders near the front seats to protect occupants from a side-on collision, while Mercedes’ Pre-Safe Sound feature plays pink noise immediately once an impending collision is detected, which helps to protect occupants from potential hearing damage during a crash. It’s clear that the Mercedes-Benz engineers have thought of virtually everything with the E-Class, and the result is a brilliant bundle of technology that deftly solves problems most drivers didn’t even know existed.

Of course, all the tech features in the world don’t mean anything if the car doesn’t deliver a solid driving experience, and the E-Class certainly does. The 2017 E-Class features a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine, which is mated with the same nine-speed automatic transmission used in all of Mercedes’ recent releases. It won’t be confused with a high-end sports car, but the spunky turbo engine offers an excellent blend of performance and efficiency. Handling is smooth and responsive, lending a sporty feel to go along with the excellent ride quality that is typical of Mercedes-Benz.

Stepping inside, the 2017 E-Class is tremendously well-appointed. Attractive open-grain wood trim accents abound, with a logically designed cockpit and a spacious passenger cabin built from high-quality materials. Optional quilted and perforated leather tops off perhaps the most luxurious cabin in its class. The crowning jewel is a 12.3-inch infotainment screen built into the center stack, which puts a dizzying amount of information and features at the driver’s fingertips. An optional upgrade swaps this out for a single display that spans well over half of the dash.

Perhaps best of all, the 2017 E-Class comes with a slightly lower price tag than its predecessor as well. With distinctive styling, a class-leading luxury interior and an unprecedented level of technology and safety features, the 2017 Mercedes-Benz E-Class is truly in a class of its own. Drivers on the lookout for a smart, stylish, efficient sedan that doesn’t sacrifice an enjoyable driving experience need to look no further than the venerable E-Class.
