2017 Mercedes E-Class Estate Coming This Summer

The new E-Class family is about to grow, with Mercedes almost ready to reveal the more practical wagon.

Our spies caught an almost free-of-camo prototype of the new E-Class Estate driving around.

Since the sedan version is already out there, there is practically no need to cover the prototype’s parts that’s been shared with it, with a simple wrap trying to keep things undercover, at least up until the official reveal which is scheduled for this summer.

Expect the usual massive boot capacity and the same range of engine and gearbox options as seen in the sedan, with Mercedes adding a self-levelling rear suspension as a bonus.

Design-wise the new E-Class Estate follows the same path with the smaller C-Class, featuring a streamlined roof arc and a similarly-styled rear end. A range-topping E 63 AMG version will sit on top of the traditionally wide range with reports suggesting that Mercedes is considering the addition of a jacked-up, crossover-y version to go against the likes of the A6 Allroad et al.

This is going to be the second bodystyle of the new E-Class, with Coupe and Convertible versions on the way. The first public debut of the E-Class Estate is expected at this year’s Paris Motor Show.
