MERCEDES-BENZ E-CLASS COMES TOP OF ITS CLASS AT THE CARAVAN CLUB TOWCAR OF THE YEAR AWARDS

The new Mercedes-Benz E-Class has been named the best in its class at the Caravan Club’s Towcar of the Year awards.

The Mercedes-Benz E 220 d AMG Line Saloon underwent rigorous testing before being declared the best tow car between £35,000 and £45,000 – against 10 competitors.

Grenville Chamberlain, Chairman, The Caravan Club commented: “The judges were unanimous in their appreciation of this fine executive express which makes a very credible towcar alternative to a 4x4.  The powerful, torquey, yet frugal diesel engine, twinned with an incredibly refined nine-speed automatic gearbox made for a joyful driving experience.  This car feels absolutely unshakeable at speed.”

The new Mercedes-Benz E-Class Saloon was launched at the beginning of this year and boasts a range of innovative driving assistance systems, making it one of the most advanced cars in its segment. The new E-Class Estate is now also available, which combines ground-breaking technology with even more everyday practicality.

The new E-Class is available from Mercedes-Benz retailers now, at prices starting from £34,440 for the E 200 d SE Saloon. To find your local retailer, visit: www.mercedes-benz.co.uk.
