Just one day after images of the 2010 Mercedes-Benz E-Class were leaked onto the net, the new wagon has been officially unveiled
Set to go on sale in Europe this November, the new E-Class Wagon features dynamic styling and striking lines.
According to Mercedes, the designers emphasised the car's practicality by creating long horizontal lines which help to highlight the fact that the E-Class is the largest estate car in the premium segment.
The new wagon boasts an automatic "easy-pack" tailgate, a "quickfold" rear seat (which can be lowered from the cargo compartment), and seating for up to seven people. Overall cargo capacity measures a healthy 1950 litres which is more than some luxury SUVs.
The wagon measures 4895mm length, 1854mm width and 1471mm height.
Advanced safety systems include attention assist (a drowsiness detection system), Distronic Plus (cruise control on steroids), and Pre-Safe braking (automatic braking in emergencies), nine airbags, four belt tensioners, available rear seat airbags, and optional self-adaptive belt force limiters for the rear seats.
At launch, the E-Class will be offered with three diesel and two petrol engines. Petrol models include the 215 kW (288 hp) E 350 CGI BlueEFFICIENCY and the 285 kW (382 hp) E 500.
On the diesel side, there is the 125 kW (168 hp) E 220 CDI BlueEFFICIENCY, the 150 kW (201 hp) E 250 CDI BlueEFFICIENCY, and the 170 kW (228 hp) E 350 CDI Blue-EFFICIENCY.
