Using vehicle speed sensors and seat sensors, smart airbags in the Wraith deploy with different levels of force or don’t deploy at all to help better protect passengers of all sizes in different collisions. The Wraith’s side airbags will shut off if a child is leaning against the door. The E-Class Coupe’s side airbags don’t have smart features and will always deploy full force.

The Wraith has standard whiplash protection, which use a specially designed headrest to protect the driver and front passenger from whiplash. During a rear-end collision, the whiplash protection system moves the headrests forward to prevent neck and spine injuries. The E-Class Coupe doesn’t offer a whiplash protection system.

An active infrared night vision system optional on the Wraith helps the driver to more easily detect people, animals or other objects in front of the vehicle at night. Using an infrared camera and near-infrared lights to detect heat, the system then displays the image on a monitor in the dashboard. The E-Class Coupe doesn’t offer a night vision system.

Both the Wraith and the E-Class Coupe have standard driver and passenger frontal airbags, front side-impact airbags, driver knee airbags, side-impact head airbags, front seatbelt pretensioners, four-wheel antilock brakes, traction control, electronic stability systems to prevent skidding, daytime running lights, rearview cameras and available lane departure warning systems.

The Rolls-Royce Wraith weighs 1180 to 1323 pounds more than the Mercedes E-Class Coupe. The NHTSA advises that heavier cars are much safer in collisions than their significantly lighter counterparts.

For better traction, the Wraith has larger tires than the E-Class Coupe (F:255/40R21 & R:285/35R21 vs. 245/45R18). The Wraith’s optional tires are larger than the largest tires available on the E-Class Coupe (F:255/40R21 & R:285/35R21 vs. F:245/40R19 & R:275/35R19).

The Wraith’s standard 285/40R20 rear tires provide better handling because they have a lower 40 series profile (height to width ratio) that provides a stiffer sidewall than the E-Class Coupe’s standard 45 series tires.

For better ride, handling and brake cooling the Wraith has standard 20-inch wheels. Smaller 18-inch wheels are standard on the E-Class Coupe. The Wraith’s optional 21-inch wheels are larger than the 19-inch wheels optional on the E-Class Coupe.

The front and rear suspension of the Wraith uses air springs for a smoother, controlled ride than the E-Class Coupe, which uses coil springs. Air springs maintain proper ride height and ride more smoothly.

For a smoother ride and more stable handling, the Wraith’s wheelbase is 9.4 inches longer than on the E-Class Coupe (122.5 inches vs. 113.1 inches).

For better handling and stability, the track (width between the wheels) on the Wraith is .7 inches wider in the front and 2.3 inches wider in the rear than on the E-Class Coupe.

The Wraith’s front to rear weight distribution is more even (50.4% to 49.6%) than the E-Class Coupe’s (55.5% to 44.5%). This gives the Wraith more stable handling and braking.

Heated windshield washer nozzles are standard on the Wraith to prevent washer fluid and nozzles from freezing and help continue to keep the windshield clear in sub-freezing temperatures. The E-Class Coupe doesn’t offer heated windshield washer nozzles.

In poor weather, headlights can lose their effectiveness as grime builds up on their lenses. This can reduce visibility without the driver realizing. The Wraith has standard headlight washers to keep headlight output high. The E-Class Coupe doesn’t offer headlight washers.
