Mercedes-Benz E-Class sweeps two more awards, but for how long more?


The Mercedes-Benz W213 E-Class has done it again, bagging two more prestigious awards – ‘Best Executive Car’ and ‘New Company Car of the Year’ titles after being named as UK Car of the Year 2017.

Judges praised the E-Class for its low running costs, stylish design and impressive refinement. It’s also indisputably one of the most advanced, if not the most advanced car in its class thanks to a lengthy list of driving assistance systems. 

Back at home, Mercedes-Benz Malaysia is offering the E-Class in four trims:

The company also plans to introduce no less than 17 new models to the market this year, presumably with the E 63 S among the mix. Will we continue to be deprived of the Mercedes-Benz Estates, or will we finally get the E-Class Estate to rival the upcoming Volvo V90?
