A very short time after the market launch of the new E-Class, Mercedes-Benz is also offering the world's most successful business saloon as a special-protection E-Guard model. This differs from the standard model mainly in that it has an intelligent network of protection features made from special steel and aramide, integrated ex factory beneath the outer skin which is otherwise identical to that of the series-production vehicle. All-round polycarbonate glazing is likewise a part of this protective cocoon. Thus, the new E-Guard Saloon offers its occupants effective protection against the increasing worldwide risk of criminal attack on the road. With this new Guard model, Mercedes-Benz is continuing its eight decades of expertise in the design and production of special protection vehicles.
