Both the C Class and the E Class have both achieved “Top Safety Pick” by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). To qualify for this award the vehicles must have a score of “Good” in the following categories: front, side, roll over and rear crash protection.
In addition to the IIHS award, the C Class was also awarded five stars in the Euro NCAP (the European New Car Assessment Program), making it one of the Safest cars on the market.
BusinessWeek reported last week that Mercedes-Benz lead the US luxury auto sales in January with a 45% increase in sales over January 2009. BMW reported a 7.6% increase followed by Lexus with 5.4%. This is a great indicator the economy is turning around.

Mercedes-Benz is now offering Quickpark parking assistance on vehicles that do not have Parktronic installed. The included vehicles are the w204, x204, and w211 (GLK, C Class, E Class). It can be added to all vehicles except AMG models.
Through the use of ultrasound signals, the Quickpark system employs an audible tone to detect and warn of obstacles in the system’s rear field of view, allowing for easier parking and damage avoidance.
– Distance sensors can be painted to match vehicle color
– System engages when in reverse gear
– Quickpark will disengage when towing a trailer.
It should list for around $450 plus install from your local dealer. As usual let me know if you have any questions.
