2011 Mercedes-Benz E Class Safety

9.0
Safety

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.

The 2011 Mercedes-Benz E-Class offers great safety ratings and standard safety equipment.
