The super high tech Mercedes-Benz W213 E-Class gets top honours in the UK by bagging the 2017 Car of the Year title, following the final vote tally casted by 27 of the country’s most influential journalists.

In the past year alone, Mercedes-Benz Cars UK sold over 12,000 W213 E-Class saloons, while the Estate variant joined the lineup later in September.

The company’s Head of Product Management said, “The E-Class is one of our core models and it’s at the very heart of our brand. It features 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.”

Back at home, Mercedes-Benz Malaysia is offering the W213 range with a base price of RM396k for the E 200 Avantgarde to RM459k for the range topping E 300 AMG Line. It will soon be challenged by the BMW G30 5-Series which will make its Malaysian debut very soon.
