The all-new 2017 E-Class Wagon sets new benchmarks in terms of safety and comfort all the while appearing modernly confident, stylish and dynamic.
In terms of space, the E-Class Wagon continues to be one of the favourites in its segment: it has a cargo volume of up to 1,820 litres and, in spite of a much sportier roof line, headroom and elbowroom in the rear are in turn the best in this class. From as soon as late 2016, the Wagon will again be available with a third, folding bench seat for children.
With a capacity of 670 to 1820 litres, the E-Class Wagon's load compartment is one of the biggest in the segment. As standard, the rear bench seat has new cargo-related functionality: it is possible to position the backrest at an approximately 10 degree steeper angle. This creates an additional 30 litres of cargo volume while continuing to enable full use to be made of five seats.
Active Brake Assist is fitted as standard. It is able to warn the driver of impending collisions, provide optimum support with emergency braking and if necessary also autonomously apply the brakes. In addition to slower-moving, stopping or stationary vehicles, it can also detect pedestrians crossing the danger zone ahead of the vehicle. Other highlights include the DRIVE PILOT: this system represents Mercedes Benz's next step along the road to autonomous driving. Including Distance Pilot DISTRONIC, it is not only able to automatically keep the car the correct distance behind vehicles in front on all types of road, it can also follow them at a speed of up to 210 km/h for the first time.
