Flashy looks, fast and luxurious; be honest, these are what you want from your next car. As boring as it may sound, safety is important too, especially when you’ve got young kids or are a nervous driver. Thankfully the safest cars aren’t all dull, big, chunky things. Not just an economical luxury saloon, the Mercedes E-Class is also one of the safest cars around. There are driver and passenger airbags for almost every body part (head, chest and pelvis).
