If there is anything better than staring at a shiny, new Mercedes-Benz in the California mountains, it’s driving that new Mercedes through those California mountains—winding roads, unadvised high speeds and all.

We spent a majority of this past week hanging out with the 2017 Mercedes-Benz E300 sedan, a member of the new generation of the manufacturer’s E-Class. It’s a major launch for the Mercedes, considering that this car will be the bearer of new technology that’ll eventually be applied to the rest of the Mercedes-Benz lineup—semi-autonomous capabilities and all.

Being turned loose with a new car in the California mountains is perhaps one of the best ways to find out just how good it is, and we’ll have a full review of it up later on this week. Keep your eyes out, for both the review and some aggressive new Mercedes vehicles in your rearview mirror.
