    Twice No. 1 at AutomotiveINNOVATIONS Award 2017.

    Two prize winners of the AutomotiveINNOVATIONS Award 2017 come from Mercedes-Benz.

E-Class goes through.

The E-Class could prevail over 184 other series vehicles as most innovative model, gaining 81 index points to be clearly ahead of the runner-up vehicle with 25 points. The award is primarily based on the great number of innovations, including best aerodynamics in the sector, the first congestion emergency braking function, the first car-to-X danger warning, PRE-SAFE® sound that can prepare the hearing to an imminent accident as well as the most economical Diesel-powered car in the sector.


“Autonomous Driving and Safety”.

Mercedes-Benz also clearly wins the category “Autonomous Driving & Safety” with 69 index points for 22 innovations. Individual innovations that earned a particularly high rating are the Active Braking Assist with congestion emergency braking function, car-to-X communication, Active Lane Change Assist, Remote Park Assist and the development of the GLC F-CELL as plug-in fuel cell vehicle in the E-Class.

Innovations with additional customer use.

The basis for decisions on the AutomotiveINNOVATIONS Award is provided by a study drawing on the innovation database of the Center of Automotive Management (CAM) in Bergisch Gladbach. For the ninth year running, the automotive innovations of 18 global automobile groups comprising 52 brands have been systematically surveyed and assessed according to quantitative and qualitative criteria. Innovations are defined as new developments which offer tangible additional customer benefits. The innovations must be already available or they must at least have been presented in developed prototypes.

    E-Class Coupé – “Respect the Past”.

    Guest feature: Highsnobiety on tour with the E-Class Coupé in Barcelona.

With the E-Class Coupé through Barcelona.

Barcelona is the largest metropolis on the Mediterranean Sea, its character balances the past with the present creating a dynamic urban city and historic Mediterranean capital. In our latest video with Mercedes-Benz, we explored the city’s compelling culture through the eyes of Sören Manzoni. Watch OG-Skater and DJ Sören Manzoni take the new E-Class Coupé for a spin through Barcelona.

Respect for the past.

Manzoni experienced and influenced several cultural changes in Barcelona that followed the 1992 Summer Olympics. He played a significant role in growing the skate and surf scenes in the city and continues to help develop its nightlife through his events agency and DJing. As a first generation surfer and early skater in Barcelona, Manzoni had to maintain his integrity when faced with scorn. For him, respecting the past and its influence on the present, and focusing on the positives in his life helped him continue striving.

Sportiness and luxury combined.

Powered by the metropolis, Manzoni tells his story and takes the E-Class Coupé around the city in our energetic new video “Respect the Past”. The E-Class Coupé combines sportiness and luxury into an intelligent and powerful vehicle.
