The Estate version of the latest Mercedes-Benz E-Class is now on sale, at prices starting from £37,935.
This buys the only model initially available, the four-cylinder 2.0-litre turbodiesel powered E 220 d. This offers 191bhp, with 295lbft of torque, good enough for a 7.7-second 0-62mph time while returning combined cycle fuel economy of 67.3mpg and CO2 emissions of 109g/km.
The £37,935 price tag buys the SE trim level, which includes as standard a Garmin Map Pilot navigation system; Agility Control suspension; 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; a DAB radio and 17-inch alloys with a five-spoke design.
AMG Line versions are on offer from £40,430. These add AMG exterior styling with 19-inch alloy wheels in titanium grey; an 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.
Six-cylinder variants, the E 350 d diesel and the Mercedes-AMG E 43 with its 3-litre V6 petrol engine will join the range later in the year and prices will be announced closer to order books opening in October.
Meanwhile the E-Class saloon range has been expanded to include the E 200 d. The 2-litre unit produces 148bhp, with a 72.4mpg combined cycle consumption figure and CO2 emissions of 102g/km.
