Expert Quotes:

Top Safety Pick for the Coupe and Sedan. Wagon and Cabriolet not yet tested.

Not yet tested.

The 2011 Mercedes-Benz E-Class comes standard with antilock disc brakes, stability and traction control, front side airbags, front pelvic airbags, side curtain airbags and a driver knee airbag.

Mercedes-Benz prides itself for innovation in safety equipment, and the E-Class is a showcase of its abilities. A standard 11-airbag complement includes a driver knee bag in addition to the usual suspects, and an optional side airbag for rear-seat passengers can be added. The ability to detect driver drowsiness, monitor blind spots, automatic high-beam headlight control, adaptive cruise control, and a lane-departure warning system are also available.

The NHTSA (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration) hasn't yet rated the 2011 E-Class, but the IIHS (Insurance Institute for Highway Safety) gives the E-Class Sedan and Coupe top ratings of "good" in all categories, awarding both models its Top Safety Pick designation. The Cabriolet and Wagon weren't tested, but should offer similar protection.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
