Billed by its German manufacturer as the “most intelligent estate” it has ever produced, Mercedes has unveiled the next edition of its E-Class wagon.
Adopting its design cues from its sedan sibling, the front of the E400 Wagon is available in luxury and sport styling packages, with the luxury model featuring the Mercedes hood ornament and the sport edition showcasing the brand’s logo on the grille.
The rear portion of the wagon has been redesigned and features thinner taillights, an LED brake light within a roof-mounted spoiler, two reflectors and a widened tailgate handle.
The 2017 edition of the E400 also offers three rows of seating that can accommodate up to seven people, 23.7 cu.ft of luggage space with the rear seats in place and 64.3 cu.ft of space when all three rows of the seats are folded.
Mated to a nine-speed automatic transmission, the wagon is powered by a twin-turbo V6 that puts out 329 horsepower and 354 lb-ft of torque, an upgrade over the 302 HP and 273 lb-ft of torque provided by the E350 wagon. 4matic all-wheel-drive is standard.
The E400 Wagon will arrive at U.S. dealerships early in 2017. Pricing has not yet been announced.
