Fresh spy images show the forthcoming wagon model lapping the Nürburgring.
The front is identical to the sedan, thus the development team only bothers to conceal the back. In a feeble effort to hide the fact that this is a Mercedes, the team hides the logo on the hood and removes the star from the grille.
A spoiler on the roof of the back end covers the hatchback and provides shade. Only the outer edges of the taillights are visible, but they seem to have a similar, tapered form to the sedan (see comparison below).
The interior of the E-Class wagon should resemble that of the four-door model, albeit with additional space in the back. The new model comes with a cabin that is fairly high-tech. Customers have the option of purchasing the MBUX Superscreen or the MBUX Premium Plus package, which includes a display for the front passenger. While the car is parked, one can join Webex or Zoom meetings using the optional twin camera system.
There are two powertrain options available at launch. The E350 boasts a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine with mild hybrid assistance that produces 255 horsepower and 295 pound-feet of torque. A boost function allows for an additional 20 horsepower. The E450 also has an inline-six turbocharged engine with mild hybrid assistance that produces 375 and 369 horsepower.
The E-Class will get more powertrain options, we know that. The portfolio will eventually include AMG variations, and at least some of them will be compatible with the wagon.
Mercedes is also putting the finishing touches on the E-Class All-Terrain. For better off-road performance, it takes the wagon and lifts the suspension. The air suspension on the current model provides up to 5.8 inches of ground clearance. In order to shield the panels from rock impacts when leaving the asphalt, there is additional body protection.
While the standard wagon’s potential arrival in the US is unknown, a file with the EPA suggests the new All-Terrain will be sold here. The E450’s powertrain would be used.
