2024 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Wagon Is More Attractive Than The Sedan

Reveal / Comments

No, we aren't getting it in the USA. Yet.

Following the reveal of the 2024 Mercedes-Benz E-Class Sedan just a few months ago, the Germans have pulled the wraps off the new E-Class Estate. Or wagon, if you prefer. As expected, the E-Class Estate shares the updated all-new design that debuted on the sedan with rounded headlights and unique triangular patterns in the taillights.

To our eyes, the wagon is more attractive than the sedan. The blacked-out C-pillar gives it a coupe-like profile, and the stumpy rear end sets it apart from a range of sedans and EQ models that all look the same.

Mercedes will initially offer the E-Class Estate with three engine options, including gas, diesel, and plug-in hybrid. The E200 gets a 2.0-liter turbocharged mild-hybrid four-cylinder with 204 horsepower and 236 lb-ft of torque. The E220d uses a four-cylinder turbodiesel, also with mild-hybrid assist, delivering 197 hp and 325 lb-ft. An inline-six turbodiesel will arrive later, as will an inline-six plug-in hybrid.

Finally, the E300e adds an electric motor good to the E200's engine, taking the output up to 312 horses. The 25.4 kWh battery pack is said to be suitable for a 62-mile all-electric range.

The wagon has grown compared to its predecessor, gaining 0.86 inches in the wheelbase, 0.15 inches in overall length, 1.1 inches in width, and 0.04 inches in height.

Whereas the sedan's trunk accommodates 19 cubic feet, the wagon has 21.7 cubes behind the second row. That space opens to 64.6 cubic feet with the seats folded. Unlike the outgoing model, there is no longer a rear-facing third-row available.

Inside, the technology is shared with the sedan, including the new Superscreen with TikTok, Angry Birds, and built-in cameras that serve various purposes.

Sadly, none of the aforementioned E-Class Estate models will be sold in the US market, but we will eventually get the lifted version called the All-Terrain, which is pretty similar but taller. The US will also receive the high-performance E63 Wagon, which is rumored to drop the V8 engine in favor of a hybrid V6, though this is still unconfirmed. Those same rumors claim the next-generation E63 will produce nearly 700 hp and over 800 lb-ft of torque.

The E-Class Estate goes on sale in Europe later this year, and given the lack of any official announcements, the US won't get the E-Class All-Terrain or E63 Wagon until 2024.
