As Autoblog puts it, the theme for the upcoming E-Class seems to be “technology stuff,” and with good reason: The new model has various new and improved tech features that many buyers will appreciate.

There’s support for NFC-based door unlocking and for starting your car with a smartphone. The official smartphone app also offers remote control parking.

The 2017 Mercedes-Benz E-Class has evasive maneuver assistance that identifies pedestrians and helps you steer away of danger, adaptive cruise control that sets the speed based on road signs along the way, and active emergency braking for cross-traffic.

The new safety features include rear-seat seatbelt airbags, an airbag that pushes the front-seat passengers towards the center of the car before a side impact and an audio system that triggers your eardrum reflexes to prevent any hearing damage in a car crash.

All that sounds very exciting, so check out the video below for more details on some of the new E-Class’s features – the vehicle should be unveiled at the 2016 North American International Auto Show in Detroit.
