Mercedes-Benz E-Class review: Night-vision system tested

We've just spent a few days testing the night-vision system on the Mercedes-Benz E-Class and now, like the Terminator, ve zee everyzing. Hop aboard and we'll show you how

Our mums always told us the only way to get good eyesight was to eat our carrots. Sadly, we never listened, and now we're a bunch of four-eyed freaks with rapidly decaying optic nerves. We're not worried though, because technology is at hand -- we've just spent a few days testing the night-vision system on the Mercedes-Benz E-Class and now, like the Terminator, ve zee everyzing.

As if driving along pitch-black motorways without having to look at the road ahead wasn't cool enough, the Merc also comes with three (count 'em) TVs, two DVD players and an on-board computer system that accelerates, brakes and stops the car on your behalf while you're stuck in rush-hour traffic. All you have to do is steer. And work out what buttons to press to enable these funtions.

Is it any good, though? Does having a car this advanced remove the pleasure of driving? No way -- this is how we roll on Car Tech. Grab your NHS frames, hop aboard and ride shotgun with the big boys as we show you how the other half live.
