E 350 4Matic Wagon Gets Reviewed by Car and Driver

The facelifted E-Class S212 makes Mercedes-Benz one of the last premium manufacturers to keep offering a station wagon in its segment, especially in the age of crossover and SUVs taking over a niche that used to be much more populated a few decades ago in the United States.

The model's unique, old-school look is probably one if its greatest attributes, since it's also responsible for the gargantuan interior and luggage compartment space.

The E-Class Wagon has such a spacious interior that Mercedes-Benz even offers it with two extra seats in the luggage compartment, designed for children and facing rearwards.

With a somewhat lower weight and size than a similarly-price premium SUV or crossover we're kind of wondering why the model remains a rara avis on US roads, but some people put that into the "lack of all-wheel drive" basket.

Well, starting with 2013 Mercedes-Benz has started a true 4Matic all-wheel drive offensive in the United States, with the E-Class Wagon obviously included in the wave.

The folks form Car and Driver recently drove a Mercedes-Benz E 350 4Matic Wagon and wrote a nice review about the “classic with a touch of modern” model.
