[VIDEO] 2014 Mercedes-Benz E-Class gets the Top Safety Pick Plus image

The IIHS has recently tested out the facelifted version of the Mercedes-Benz E-Class, which has received the Top Safety Pick Plus award.

Even if it can’t really be named a brand new model, the 2014 Mercedes-Benz E-Class is still an important player in its segment, along with the BMW 5-Series and the Audi A6. The model in question has been recently crash tested by the IIHS (Insurance Institute for Highway Safety). The 2014 Mercedes-Benz E-Class has scored a “basic” rating for the standard collision prevention assist and a “superior” rating for its Pre-Safe Brake system. Some lower leg injuries are possible in the small overlap crash.

The current Mercedes-Benz E-Class facelift has been officially unveiled back in 2012 and it’s coming in an entry-level version called the E200, with 181 HP (135 kW) from the 2.0L gasoline burner. This is followed by the 208 HP (155 kW) E250, coming with the same unit. The E200 CDI is the next in lineup, with its 2.1L four-cylinder 134 HP (100 kW) and the E220 CDI with 168 HP (125 kW). The E250 CDI has a 201 HP (150 kW) engine and the E250 is coming with 248 HP from the 3.0L V6. The E63 AMG is the top of the line version, with its 5.5L V8.
