Mercedes-Benz E-Class Estate (2016–)

Model History

June 2016

Mercedes E-Class Estate launched

In terms of the space on offer, the E-Class Estate has a cargo volume of up to 1820 litres. From as soon as late 2016, the Estate will again be available with a third, folding bench seat for children.

For the UK market launch, the new estate will be available as an E 220 d 194PS featuring an entirely newly developed four-cylinder diesel engine. In the fourth quarter of 2016, the E 350 d will follow, which has a six-cylinder diesel engine. At market launch, all models are equipped as standard with the new 9G-TRONIC nine-speed automatic transmission.

The first performance stage of this all-rounder is the Mercedes-AMG E 43 4MATIC Estate, which will likewise be available from the fourth quarter. With the powerful 401PS 3.0-litre V6 biturbo engine, 9G-TRONIC automatic transmission with shortened shift times, AMG Performance 4MATIC all-wheel drive and model-specific sports suspension, it boasts the AMG brand's hallmark driving performance and increased agility.

With a capacity of 670 to 1820 litres, the E-Class Estate's load compartment is one of the biggest in the segment. As standard, the rear bench seat has new cargo-related functionality: it is possible to position the backrest at an approximately 10-degree steeper angle. This creates an additional 30 litres of cargo volume while continuing to enable full use to be made of five seats.

In addition, the rear seat backrest folds down in a 40:20:40 split as standard, opening up plenty of potential configurations between transport capacity and seats. To release the backrests, there are electric switches located in the load compartment and to the right and left next to the backrests.

The EASY-PACK tailgate provided as part of the standard equipment can be opened and closed very easily at the touch of a button for comfortable loading and unloading. Operation is electromechanical. To prevent the tailgate making contact with the garage roof, for example, it can be halted in any position and its opening angle limited.

A self-levelling rear air suspension continues to be part of the vehicle concept as standard. This ensures that the Estate always stays horizontal, even when fully laden (up to 745 kg depending on the model) or with all the towing capacity in use (up to 2100 kg). With AIR BODY CONTROL, all-round air suspension is available as an option.

Standard wheel and tyre sizes:

17-inch wheels with 225/55 R17 tyres

18-inch wheels with 245/45 R18 tyres

19-inch wheels with 245/35 R19 front tyres; 275/30 R19 rears

20-inch wheels with 275/30 R20 tyres

Prices for new E-Class Estate announced

The new Mercedes-Benz E-Class Estate is now available to order, priced from £37,935 for the E 220 d SE and £40,430 for the E 220 d AMG Line.

Initially, only the diesel-powered four-cylinder E 220 d will be available, with the six-cylinder E 350 d and petrol 3.0-litre V6 Mercedes-AMG E 43 joining the range later this year. Pricing for the E 350 d and E 43 will be announced when ordering opens in October.

The E 220 d features Mercedes-Benz’s all-new four-cylinder 2.0-litre turbo-charged engine, which produces 194 hp and 400 Nm. A 9G-Tronic automatic gearbox comes as standard. It offers a combined fuel consumption of 67.3 mpg and CO2 levels from just 109 g/km, and it can reach 62 mph from standstill in just 7.7 seconds.

The E 200 d has been added to the E-Class Saloon line-up. It features a 2.0-litre engine with an output of 150 hp. It emits just 102 g/km of CO2 and delivers up to 72.4 mpg on the combined cycle.

As standard, SE models come with Garmin Map Pilot navigation system; Agility Control suspension; Easy-Pack automatic powered tail gate; Parking Pilot including Parktronic and reversing camera; chrome roof rails; 64-colour selectable LED interior lighting; Keyless-Go starting function; heated front seats; DAB radio; and 17-inch alloys with a five-spoke design.

For an extra £2,495, AMG Line adds AMG exterior styling with 19-inch alloy wheels in titanium grey; upper dashboard finished in Artico leather; black ash wood trim; brushed stainless steel AMG sports pedals with black rubber studs; and a three-spoke AMG steering wheel wrapped in Nappa leather.

Premium and Premium Plus packages are also available. The Premium pack (£2,795) includes Keyless-Go Comfort package; Memory package; and a panoramic glass sunroof. For an additional £1,100, Premium Plus adds the Burmester surround sound system with 13 speakers; and a Multibeam LED Intelligent Light System.

Next-generation driver assistance systems include a Lane Tracking Package (£595) that includes Passive Blind Spot Assist and Active Lane Keeping Assist; and the more comprehensive Driving Assistance Plus Package.

The Driving Assistance Plus package costs £1,695, and includes Drive Pilot, which combines three innovative assistance systems; Steering Pilot, Distance Pilot Distronic, and Speed Limit Pilot. Steering Pilot detects road markings and actively assists the driver by one-sided braking, guiding the car to stay within its lane. Distance Pilot Distronic uses radars to maintain a set distance from the car in front, while Speed Limit Pilot detects a change in speed limit and automatically alters the car’s speed without intervention from the driver.

Active Brake Assist with cross-traffic function, Evasive Steering Assist, and Pre-Safe Impulse Side are also included in the Driving Assistance Plus package.

Comand Online is available for £1,495 and increases the standard 8.4-inch navigation screen to 12.3 inches. Customers can opt for the 12.3-inch cockpit display – creating a widescreen effect inside the cabin for just £495.

October 2016

New engines added

Three new engines have been added to the E-Class Estate range, which now starts at £36,735 for the E 200 d SE. The E 350 d SE is priced from £47,255, while the Mercedes-AMG E 43 costs £58,290. The existing E 220 d Estate starts from £38,230.

The 200 d features the latest 2.0-litre diesel engine with an output of 150 hp and CO 2 emissions of just 109 g/km. It delivers 65.7 mpg on the combined cycle. The 3.0-litre V6 E 350 d produces 258 hp while delivering up to 48.7 mpg and emitting 140 g/km of CO 2 .

The Mercedes-AMG E 43 4MATIC Estate features a bi-turbo 3.0-litre V6 petrol engine which generates 401 hp – enabling it to reach 62 mph from standstill in 4.7 seconds. All E-Class engines come as standard with a 9G-TRONIC automatic transmission (with shorter shift times for the E 43).

Standard specification on the E-Class Estate mirrors that in the E-Class Saloon, but with the addition of standard split-folding rear seats. Comand Online with a 12.3-inch screen comes as standard on the E 350 d, and customers can add to this with the 12.3-inch cockpit display for £495.

All E-Class Estate models are now available with an optional folding bench seat in the boot, for £1,250.

An Easy-Pack load securing kit can be specified for an additional £295. This provides rails in the load compartment floor with a telescopic bar that means luggage can be safely clamped against the rear seats or side wall.

An AMG carbon fibre package is available on both Mercedes-AMG E 43 bodystyles for £1,575 – it includes exterior mirror casings and an AMG spoiler lip (saloon only) finished in carbon fibre.
