It might not be cheap, but the Mercedes E-Class Estate is extremely classy, exceptionally spacious and impressively refinedread the full model review
We’d stick with the entry-level SE trim because it comes with a host of luxuries including alloys, climate control, an 8.4in infotainment screen, sat-nav, a DAB radio, cruise control, LED headlights, power-fold door mirrors, a semi-auto parking system, front and rear parking sensors, a rear-view camera, heated leather seats and an electrically operated tailgate. On the E 350 d, you also get the more advanced Comand Online infotainment system and air suspension.,
This 192bhp 2.0-litre diesel engine emits from as little as 109g/km of CO2, making it a popular choice among company car drivers. It comes with a nine-speed automatic gearbox as standard and is a surprisingly strong performer. Sounds a little bit grumbly under acceleration compared to the competition, though.
