2017 Mercedes E-Class Crash Test - Better than 5 Stars
2017 Mercedes E-Class Crash Test - Better than five stars The E-Class's occupant safety, child safety, pedestrian protection and assistance systems have been awarded a five-star Euro NCAP rating. The Saloon was a particularly deserving recipient of this top rating since in the crash tests in all four categories it significantly outperformed the standard required by Euro NCAP in order to attain the top score of five stars. Category Result E-Class Five-star cut-off Occupant safety 95% 80% Child safety 90% 75% Pedestrian protection 77% 60% Assistance systems 62% 50% The E-Class Saloon also achieved two Euro NCAP "Advanced" awards for PRE‑SAFE® and ATTENTION ASSIST – both awards go beyond the star rating and underline particular safety innovations. The E-Class Saloon owes these impressive results primarily to the combination of its high-strength passenger safety cell with highly effective restraint systems and the large number of driver assistance systems on board. Active Brake Assist, for example, is a standard feature. It is able to warn the driver of impending collisions, provide support with emergency braking and, if necessary, apply the brakes autonomously. Likewise included as standard are ATTENTION ASSIST with adjustable sensitivity, which can warn the driver of inattentiveness and drowsiness, and Crosswind Assist. Other driver assistance systems are available as an option, including DRIVE PILOT, which marks a further milestone on the road to automated driving, Active Lane Keeping Assist, Active Blind Spot Assist and Traffic Sign Assist with wrong-way warning function. Some of these optional systems, however, have not yet been taken into consideration in the Euro NCAP assessment. Active and passive safety are intelligently combined with the PRE-SAFE® system, which is able to recognise critical situations on the road and, where there is the threat of an accident, trigger preventive measures to protect the occupants. PRE‑SAFE® Impulse Side is available as an option for the E-Class for the first time. If it detects the immediate threat of a lateral collision, this new subsystem is able to move the driver or front passenger away from the danger zone as a preventive measure, effectively creating a virtual crumple zone for the side of the vehicle. Another new feature is the standard PRE-SAFE® Sound system. Immediately before a collision it can trigger a natural protective reflex in the ear, preparing the occupants for the noise of the accident in order to reduce potential damage to their hearing. Mercedes-Benz takes the protection of more vulnerable road users such as children very seriously. This also applies to pedestrians and cyclists. The E-Class Saloon features an active bonnet which can be raised 80 millimetres during an impact to provide additional deformation space. In addition Active Brake Assist is not only able to recognise slow-moving, stopping or stationary vehicles but also pedestrians crossing in the danger zone in front of the vehicle and can brake autonomously to prevent a collision with a pedestrian. With features such as these, the E-Class's impressive pedestrian protection standards far exceed statutory requirements. The E-Class Saloon's success in the Euro NCAP rating is the result of Mercedes‑Benz's holistic safety philosophy. Instead of focusing solely on rating requirements, the company uses findings from its own accident research to develop internal test standards and test criteria that go beyond what is required by law.

For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/leuv35u This lightly used Mercedes is a clean, 100% road-ready classic. Its subdued, Pearl Gray paint carries just the right amount of refinement worthy of a Mercedes badge, and looking at its solid flanks, there's no question it was constructed with fine workmanship. Fit and panel gaps are exactly what you would expect from a vintage car with the three-point star, and one look at the chip-free rockers reveals a finish that probably hasn't seen anything more abrasive than foul language. Overall, with what amounts to just 'break-in' miles, the body is virtually blemish-free. And, for a driven piece that's never been fully restored, this SL's appearance is simply remarkable! Lift the long hood and you'll find advanced technology that allows this SL to provide smooth and powerful acceleration which almost defies the laws of late '80s automotive physics. The silky and quiet 5.6 liter SOHC V8 delivers enough grunt to make the car feel much lighter than it actually is and, with a flick of the key, lights off instantly. Hit the road, fully pressurize the Bosch KE Jetronic fuel injectors and the mill's restrained power quickly glides right up to triple-digit speeds. The big motor accelerates well in any gear, providing plenty of torque at any given speed or time. Cosmetically, everything here looks like a well preserved time capsule, which isn't surprising given the car's meticulously kept shell. And since it was produced before the OEMs' questionable obsession with plastic engine covers, you can plainly see how well-maintained every seal, bolt and electronic component is. One squeeze of the throttle and a 4-speed automatic transmission seamlessly and steadily sends power to mild gears that quickly set you on your way. Factory power steering and well-balanced power disc brakes mix good handling with reliable, drama-free stops. And at the edge of those brakes, mirrored wheels spin 205/65R15 Michelin Primacy MXV4s. Inside, this well-mannered 560 is Teutonic luxury at its finest. Supple leather buckets are supremely comfortable, and look great in their classic Gray tint. In front of those seats, crystal clear gauges are laid out in typical Mercedes fashion of three binnacles with simple dials and lighted pointers. Below that dash, a wood-trimmed console anchors a wood-trimmed shifter on clean carpet that's protected by Ðþ{560 SLÐþ{ branded floor mats. And in front of the driver, a gray, Mercedes-branded steering wheel provides a responsive connection to the road. Luxurious and capable, this Mercedes is a substantial roadster that appears to have been exceptionally maintained throughout its entire existence.
