First glimpse of new Mercedes Benz

Funeral directors across the UK have been given an exclusive look at the aesthetics and technology of the new E Class Mercedes Benz.

Kevin Smith of Superior UK, supplier of Binz vehicles, recently returned from Italy and Germany, with some news about the next E Class. Until now, the funeral industry hasn’t been able to take a close look at the vehicle that has been called a ‘tour de force of technology’.

Kevin said: “The good news for funeral directors is that the aesthetics of the new E Class are not so different from the outgoing model. Customers who want to add to their fleet without a total overhaul will be able to seamlessly blend their vehicles, and continue to complete their fleet without any cars looking out of place.”

Mercedes Benz said the front of the new E Class shares synergy with the outgoing model but anyone with a keen eye for cars will spot subtle changes.

Standard specification includes LED headlights and taillights, satellite navigation, Active Brake Assist and PRE-Safe Sound. All new E Class saloons will have the new nine-speed 9G-Tronic automatic gearbox as standard, which delivers a high 72.4 mpg economy.

Kevin said: “This is great news for any customer who wants to mix their fleet or update just one limo or hearse. They’ll be able to do so without it being immediately obvious that they are running two models.”

Superior UK is gearing up to deliver the first of these vehicles in spring 2017 with the limousine rolling out first and the hearse shortly after.
