2017 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Estate Priced in the UK

Even if crossovers have prevailed and stations wagons are not as popular as they once were in the U.S. and Europe, a handful of premium manufacturers still carry the longroof torch. One of them is Mercedes-Benz, and its weapon of choice is the E-Class Estate.

After it had announced the suggested retail pricing of the S213 for the German market, the three-pointed star has now published the pricing for the United Kingdom. In the Albion, the 2017 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Estate starts from £37,935 for the E 220 d SE model.

Other than it, Mercedes-Benz also offers the E 220 d AMG Line for £40,430. So to speak, you can’t buy a petrol-powered variant of the E-Class Estate. That model will arrive later this year in the form of the Mercedes-AMG E43, a family car with a thumping twin-turbo V6 powerplant under its hood. Besides it, the E-Class Estate lineup will be joined by the E 350 d by the end of 2016.

Given this, let’s turn our attention back to the four-cylinder turbo diesel currently available to order in the UK. The E 220 d, as I’m sure you already know, draws its get-up-and-go from a 2.0-liter oil-chugging engine with 194 horsepower and 400 Nm. With the 9G-Tronic handling shifting duties, the powerplant offers a combined fuel consumption of 67.3 mpg (4.2 l/100 km).

The SE at the end of E 220 d refers to the trim level, which boasts Garmin Map Pilot satellite navigation, Agility Control suspension, an automatic powered tailgate, Parking Pilot with Parktronic and reversing camera, as well as LED interior lighting, Keyless-Go, heated front seats, 17-inch five-spoke alloy wheels, and DAB radio.

£2,495 on top of the SE buys you the AMG Line, which adds AMG styling cues, 19-inch wheels painted titanium gray, Artico leather in the upper region of the dashboard, black ash wood trim, sportier pedals with black rubber studs, as well as an AMG steering wheel.

The most important option worth considering when buying a 2017 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Estate (S213) is Comand Online. For a rather hefty £1,495, the optional infotainment system increases the size of the central display from 8.4-inch to 12.3 inches. What's more, the optional 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster retails for just £495.
