UK Car of the Year Awards

The top UK Car of the Year title went to the luxurious Mercedes-Benz E-Class which showcases a wealth of innovative technology.

The Mercedes-Benz E-Class was best of the best in the UK Car of the Year Awards 2017.

Having already been awarded the accolade of best executive car when the category winners were announced in January, the E-Class has added to the triumph by sealing victory in the overall vote.

John Challen, director of the UK Car of the Year Awards, said: “Mercedes-Benz has a long history of creating impressive saloon cars and the new E-Class continues this trend and raises the bar in the executive vehicle sector. Stunning inside and out, it takes driver and passengers into the realms of luxury. The level of technology – and the attention to detail – at your fingertips is astounding.”

Krishan Bodhani, Mercedes-Benz Cars UK head of smart and product management, said: “The E-Class is one of our core models – it’s at the very heart of our brand. When we unveiled the all-new car last year it showcased 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.”
