For The E-Class Estate is bigger and more practical than most rival executive wagons. It has a range of potent engines and lots of safety kit.

Against Some of the interior plastics are a bit disappointing. It's pricey and the controls are fiddly.

As estate cars go, they don’t come much bigger than the Mercedes E-Class Estate. It’s a little disappointing in other areas, but there’s no arguing with the space on offer.

Buyer's notes

Target Price team says:

The Mercedes E-Class is one of the most practical estates you can buy, with a huge, well-shaped boot and several thoughtful touches that make life that little bit easier.

Each version comes on a different suspension set-up, which changes the car’s character. The SE’s soft suspension is comfortable, but the handling is a little soggy. AMG Sport models are firmer, while the models with air suspension are terrific, but pricey.

There’s a wide range of engines to choose from, too, but we reckon the E220 CDI diesel is the pick of the range because it’s powerful enough and keeps running costs low.
