Mercedes-Benz E-Class Estate wagon official details, E350 4matic only U.S.-bound model


The all-new Mercedes Benz E-Class has now reached showrooms in most parts of the globe, and now we are just a couple of months away from the launch of the ‘Estate’ wagon version. Today, however, Mercedes has released full details and images for the new model.

Mercedes has previously confirmed that the wagon will make its world debut at September’s Frankfurt Motor Show before going on sale in Europe by the end of the year. The North American launch will bring only the E350 4matic version in June of 2010 as a 2011 model. So far no other E-Class wagon variants are planned for American sale. A sport-configuration variant will be available for the first time on the U.S. E-Class wagon, however, bringing a special grille, more aggressive front and rear fascias, twin trapezoidal exhaust pipes, 'twist' side rocker panels, cross-drilled brake discs with colored rotors and five-spoke 17in alloy wheels. Optional 18in alloys are available as an AMG wheel package upgrade.

With a load capacity of up to 1,950 liters, the E-Class Estate (length/width/ height: 4,895/1,854/1,471 mm) sets the standard in its class. Furthermore, the elbow width in the rear has been increased by 50 mm to 1,505 mm over the previous model, while rear headroom with has also improved by 50 mm to 1,010 mm.

Like the sedan, the range of engines available worldwide for the new wagon will comprise four, six and eight-cylinder units with outputs from 100 kW/136 hp to 386 kW/525 hp – the top end model being the E63 from AMG. The four-cylinder engines are newly developed direct-injection units, which develop a higher output and torque than the comparable V6-engines of the preceding series despite a smaller displacement.

The top model in the new E-Class diesel range is the six-cylinder E350 CDI with an output of 170 kW/231 hp, which uses 0.5L per 100km less fuel than the previous E320 CDI.

Along with the debut of the new wagon, Mercedes will also be launching two new engines for the E-Class range under the E200 CGI and E200 CDI guises.

  3. Mercedes just keeps getting uglier. There is this strange concoction of retro & modernism that simply do not meld. As if there is some internal conflict and the result is this!

    Even the modernity is more Star Trek the 60's television show than Star Wars!

    And the proportions seem to have been rendered in a fun house mirror! MB is going through it's "fugly" phase as BMW has. There seems to be some hope for BMW to perhaps emerge I would say by the third cycle form where it stands currently. Audi's A4 is suspect as well, however the A5 is simply beautiful.

  4. And of course, as always, America is deprived of any fast wagons.

  6. VERY handsome looking wagon. We can always count on MBenz, Audi, and Volvo to give us such nice looking wagons.

  7. Why won't Mercedes bring the C-class diesel (or e-class diesel) wagon to the US? As a wagon buyer, I like a nice ride, but (obviously) have given up "performance" and would much rather have a good 4-cylinder (or 6) diesel engine for frugality. Seems that there is a missed opportunity. Oh well, my lease is up and I'll be heading over to VW to check out the 5-door golf tdi and Jetta wagon...

  9. Are all of the E class wagons going to be built on the C class chassie? I notice the cubic luggage space is 20.1 cubic ft, the same as the C class sedsn. The older E class wagons had 85 cubic ft of luggage space, 1998 thru 2009. None came to the US as 2010's. If I'm wrong please let me know. I was planning on a new one, but want the larger version
