What Car? says

5 out of 5 stars

For Loads of room; prestige image; fine turbodiesels

Against Smaller petrol engines struggle

Verdict Looks the part whether at the tip or the local gymkhana

Go for… E320 CDi Avantgarde

Avoid… E200 Classic

Mercedes-Benz E-Class Estate
  • 1. The E-Class Estate is a great long-distance cruiser, but it doesn't handle as sharply as a BMW 5-Series
  • 2. Listen out for squeaky brakes, especially on cars that have been used for towing
  • 3. Make sure the suspension has been serviced according to the schedule. The front suspension needs new bushes every 60,000 miles
  • 4. The 300 TD diesel is good, but the 320 CDi is even better - and our choice
  • 5. The E-Class estate is simply one of the most practical estates money can buy
