Review

It's not cheap, but the Mercedes E-Class Estate is classy and impressively refined. It's also generally comfortable, easy to drive, well equipped and a compelling option in the luxury estate car sector. Crucially, its boot beats the BMW 5 Series Touring's and Volvo V90's for luggage room, although the V90 does have more spacious rear seats. The E300de plug-in hybrid has the best fuel economy of any equivalent PHEV once the battery is depleted.

On top of the AMG Line Edition, this adds adaptive LED headlights and a gesture-controlled powered boot lid.

The 302bhp E300de combines the long-range efficiency of a diesel engine (it'll easily average over 50mpg using both power sources) with an official 32-mile electric-only range. It’s quick, too, with 0-62mph in 6.0sec.
