Video: Mercedes Demonstrates How Clever The All-New E-Class Is


Mercedes USA has released a series of promotional videos explaining some of the car’s high-tech safety features that currently make it the most in its segment.

From Car-to-X communication to its Evasive Steering Assist or its semi-autonomous Drive Pilot technology, the new Mercedes-Benz E-Class was designed to keep you informed, safe and comfortable, perhaps more so than any other car currently on the market.

Its PRE-SAFE features, such as Impulse Side tech or the sound it emits to make crashing just that tiny bit more bearable, are both clever and useful. The latter was designed specifically to make impacts less deafening by emitting a noise that contracts a muscle in your ear, thus minimizing potential hearing damage from the crash.

When it comes to driving itself, Mercedes have drawn a slightly clearer line in the sand than what Tesla have done with their Autopilot system. The German automaker’s Drive Pilot tech is equally as semi-autonomous as Tesla’s, yet when you add things like the Impulse Side system you can’t help but feel like the E-Class was designed to do whatever it takes for you not to get hurt behind the wheel.

Of course, the fact that compared to its rivals the E-Class is “younger”, helps making it the most advanced mid-size premium saloon money can buy right now.
