Review

It might not be cheap, but the Mercedes E-Class Estate is extremely classy, spacious and impressively refined. It's boot space is capacious, beating a BMW 5 Series Touring for capacity, although rear legroom suffers against rivals such as the Volvo V90. Its composure and typical high-end Mercedes finish complete these compelling package.

Trim: SE

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.,

Engine: E300de

If you’re tempted by the fuel economy offered by the diesel hybrid E300de - beware that the extra weight of the battery hasn’t helped its handling, and although it’s quick the diesel still sounds gruff
